Shroom potency.
    #2529709 - 04/06/04 12:08 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

I noticed when I had 3 grams of Creeper that were picked, then fan dried between 48-72 hours they were very potent vs 3 more grams of the same strain that had been stored for a bit. Is there a way to store dried shrooms for awhile and still get the maximum potency? I just keep a fan on them for 2 or 3 days then put in a ziploc bag, but it seems that they lose a significant amount of potency.

I've always used a food dehydrator with a temp control, set on 95 degrees.....works great.
Edit- Try putting a couple of those dessicant packets (from shoe boxes or beefjerky) in the ziplock with them.

fan drying usually dosn't get all the water out and storing them in plastic holds moisture better to, i bet they were bendable the ones that were stored for a bit and didn't break if you tried to bend them even just a little like they should. if storing you should put dessicant with them like chief said, also i like tupperware better than plastic baggies.

So basically if you are not eating them fresh and going to store them they need to cracker dry because storing them with water still in them can eventually reduce potency?

Yes, exactly....they can grow mold also if not completely dry.
