a food dehydrator will dry the shrooms, but at that temperature you could lose a good deal of potency. Personally I would stick to using dessicant, it is very reliable, timely, and you lose hardly any potency.

I have not experienced a noticable difference in potency with shrooms that have been dried with the use of heat. If there is a difference it is neglagable. I think you'll be fine unless you try to dry them with a butane torch.

You do not have to. It does save dessicant though.

No, of course not. The dehydrator IS the fan dryer!

damn! like eight posts and you barely got a decent answer.

yes, use the food dehydrator, yes use the heat. yes you can go up to about 120 degrees F before incuring serious harm. be advised that the thermostat has a range it clicks on and off, and will overshoot and undershoot the shown setting, so 95 is a safe choice. a twenty degree overshoot would not be a surprise.

for the first couple of hours, the moisture content of the mushrooms themselves will protect them, so you could conceivably go even hotter at first. toward the end, i would go down to 95 or even less and run it for extra time. the commercial units don't consume a lot of power on low settings, it's not going to hurt them if you run 80 degree air over them for two days to achieve dryness.
