Tip 1: Never, never, never pick mushrooms in a plastic bag. They need to breathe. In that bag they'll sweat, and the excess moisture leads to rapid rotting and growth of bacteria. Those bacteria can give you food poisoning. Use waxed paper or brown paper lunch bags.

Tip 2: Store them like you'd store food. The refrigerator is a good place to keep them. If you can't do that, consider drying them. Again, get them out of the plastic bag!

Happy mushrooming!

Im a bit worried about my shrooms, I have about 200 libs in an A4 zip lock baggie but it doesnt seal air tight Im worried they're startinmg to smell a bit stronger, are they supposed to smell like hay? some of them have been in the bag for almost a month. They seem bone dry though. Last year I kept them in a glass jar for about three months and they were fine, I didnt notice much of a smell but it used to be a spice jar(which helped the taste I might add).

Whats the best longish term without freezing?

Why would your mom freak out, your 18 right??? Still living at home with over-protective parents that your still hiding shit from? Or just the typical teen that shouldn't be using mushrooms at all and doesn't belong posting at this site?

Don't get me wrong, not trying to be judgemental here, but I'd feel a whole lot better giving you advice if you didn't mention your mom freaking out about finding illegal felony hallucinogenic mushrooms.

dry them next to the computer fan. when they are dry and dont get dryer and they are nowhere wet, put them in a plastic baggie. and keep them somewhere in a dark,cool spot. this should keep them good for at least a month and up to 3 months.
