How hot is too hot when drying?

Once when I could not find any damp-rid, I had to use a friends food dehydrator. The temperature could not have been much over 100 degrees, you could put your hand there and leave it. Regardless, the quality of the shrooms was decreased. Everyone who sampled them agreed. I suggest avoiding any increased temperatures.

is 85-90 ok?

That might not be too bad, because that could be the temperature the shrooms grow at. Although, PF theorizes that shrooms grown at these high temperatures could have less potency. How are you planning on drying?

no heat, no heat, no heat!
set them in front of a small fan for a day, then into the desiccant chamber.
perfect every time, with no loss in potency.

I agree, anything over room temperature is too warm for drying. Cool Drying is what you want. The output from a compressor dehumidifier blowing through stacked screen trays for 24-48 hours, then lay over Desiccant in a Desiccator.
