Hey everyone! I don't think they do, but do fresh shrooms have a strong, noticeable smell? I know when they are dry, they have a distinct smell, but I am more worried about a strong smell someone would be able to detect from, say more than 20 feet. Thanks for your help!

Dry have absolutely no identifiable odor, so much so that the US customs doesn't even train dogs to try to smell for them (not that mushrooms are a high-priority smuggling commodity anyway). You can (or could) order dried mushrooms from overseas and they would arrive unmolested in your mail box...from the hand of your friendly neighborhood postal employee. Now, I would have some serious concerns about security issues regarding the scrutiny that the US mail is under right now, for obvious reasons.
ok, im currenty doing my first attempt at growing shrooms. dry i know that they dont relaly have a smell... but i searched for the question if fresh ones do have a smell, and this is the post i got... with two different answers. the ammount im growing (at most) would be 24 1/2 pint bottles, which so far are sterile. could please somebody help me out with this? do fresh shrooms smell? if they do is there any way that i could make them smell less if they do? i dont mean to be annoying, but this is the only info i could find on this site about the topic.
thanks very much for your help... and... i dont know why its in the science and technology forum either. sorry guys i should have looked to see what it was under before i replied to it. didnt think of it...
Seriously, although, I'm sure they do give off some aromatic molecules, I do not think that psilocybin mushrooms have a noticeable odor, which would present a cultivation detection problem, the way that cannabis does.
However, I do distinctly remember about 20 years ago when my friend and I picked a shitload of Amanita Muscaria mushrooms in the wild, and filled the refrigerator with them, that the smell got quite bad, and the refrigerator full of Amanitas became quite a point of contention for many of the women in the house. I think that part of this smell was do to decomposition, and a. Muscaria, being a different species, does seem to have a much stronger natural odor than p. Cubensis.
