storing freshies in the fridge...
    #2518887 - 04/02/04 02:26 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

I put about 50 g's of fresh shrooms in a paper bag in the refrigerator last night and when i looked at them this afternoon, most of them were fine, but some of the smaller ones had turned really blue and got soft. Is this a problem? does it mean they are rotting?

no psilocin oxidising, always happens when i keep mine in the fridge as well, it's ok. shouldn't start to rot until about a week or so.

all it is is the active ingredient reacting to oxygen and turning blue, much like your blood is blue, then out of the body its red.

depending on when your gonna eat them, i wouldn't dry them if your gonna eat them tomorrow or even the next day, longer than that i guess dry them, i've kept them in the fridge 5days before without incident. i'm assume you meant to eat them soon otherwise you should dry them as soon as you pick them.
