Hello, I have some dry mushrooms in a zipper bag with a little bit of desiccant inside (it doesn't touch the shrooms) How long can they be kept without loosing potency ? monthes ? years ?

In my experience, up to about 6 months for dried cubes and potency starts to go downhill. Make sure they are completely dried, suck the air out of a ziplock, seal them and store in a sealed jar. They will retain potency better if stored properly.

If stored properly they will easily last years. I've used mushrooms 2 1/2 years after stored (cracker dry, airtight, cool, dark place) with no noticable loss in potency, even a gram still did its usual thing.
