fresh mushrooms - how long do they stay fresh?
    #3954082 - 03/22/05 04:29 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

i ordered 30g of psilocybe cubensis from holland and it should arrive in 2-4 days. how long is it possible to keep the mushrooms fresh? i don't want to dry them, yet i don't have a plan to consume them right after receiving them. what are my options? how do i storage them? whats the maximum period of time where the mushrooms will still be fresh?

thanks in advance.

Around about a week is the usual answer

I keep mine in a small portable mini fridge, theyre always munched within a couple of days so not sure exactly how long myself  :tongue:

Well I cant say for sure but I think they would have a comprobroble shelf life to mushrooms bought at the grocery store. So maybe a week week and a half in teh fridge. I guess you could freeze them but dont take my word on that. When they thawed they would probrobly be mush (pun intended). Peace

not fucking long, i would say that blaze 2 is wrong
in my experience (several times also) they begin to be a bit unpleasantly soggy and clearly degrading (in apperance and likely also potency) after 5-7 days, even when not touched at all and kept it a dark, dry, cool area.

what if someone from the u.s. orders shrooms from europe? it could take up to 9-10 days for them to arrive. does that mean that there is no other option but to dry them?

If someone from the U.S. orders shrooms from Europe they will be confiscated in customs.

"even when not touched at all and kept it a dark, dry, cool area"

You didnt have them in fridge. Why is it do you think that mushrooms are in the refridgerated section of your grocery store? Personally I have never actually stored any for more than 3 or 4 days(they were fine still). Still they shouldnt be any different from mushrooms you buy at the store adn I have stored those for a little more than a week. Of course they were in that little package thing they came in so they werent just sitting in the fridge uncovered. I think it would also depend on the mushrooms condition when you put them in the fridge. The better shape the mushroom is in, the better and longer I reckon it would store. THere has to be someone in here who has some real experiance with fresh mushroom storage in a refridgerator tho. Peace

EDIT:Humidity in the fridge will obviously also play a role. maybe if you put them in a drawer with a bag of a desiccant of some kind it would work better. Just a thought.

Eeeee! I know this girl, who went to Amsterdamn and brought 30g fresh shroomies back via car to Germany *EDITED: AND PLACED THEM IN HER FRIDGE, AFTER ONLY A 4 HOUR DRIVE* and her shrooms went from good to MOLDY AND NASTY and just wrong in about 4 days *EDITED: IN HER FRIDGE, poof! She opened the door thinking they were fine and instead of a trip she had to throw them away.

She told me to tell you to dry them.
~K
EDITED: PS, IF like blaze thought, she had left them in the car, it probably would have been better because they would have dried, not molded.

yet again she didnt have them in a fridge they were just in her car how can you make a judgement about what storing them in the fridge would be like from an experiance when they molded in a car? honestly

sorry man, you are right and i did forget to meantion that. always haven't had them in the fridge, not too sure why but thats the way things were back when i grew them

i did have paper bags though if that counts for anything

the mushrooms were in top condition following picking though, and not very tightly packed at all

i guess it could be quite possible for them to last a bit more than a week in the fridge

ok then i think i've just wasted like 12 euros for nothing :frown:
it's been 4 days since the delivery and today is a national holiday so the post office is closed. and even tomorrow, there's a good chance that my shrooms haven't arrived yet cause the customs at my country are slow as hell.
anyway, might sound like a stupid question, but how do i now whether my shrooms have gone bad and if i decide that they look ok and eat them and they're actually useless already, will they have any negative effect on you?
how about drying them? can you dry only shrooms that are fresh (3-5 days) or can you also dry shrooms that have lost their potency?
sorry for all the stupid questions but i hope you guys can bare with me :wink:

Hey there, hopefully, since they were not refrigerated, they've just dried out. Wait and see :smile:

so, basically, if they ARE dried out, i dont have to dry them myself? just keep the dried shrooms somewhere where they wont loose their potency? another positive thing i note about the whole situation, is that 30 grams of fresh mushrooms roughly equals 300 grams of dried mushrooms? please do correct me if i'm completely wrong :wink:

Hiya, yeah. 30 grams = roughly *3* NOT 300.

and if they are dried, you're fine.

i guess you would be fine if they were actually DRY (in that they snap when you bend them) but i really really really doubt they would get that dry during shipping. i recommend you either eat them right away or dry them totally and eat them whenever you like, assuming they are in half decent condition once they arrive.
you can dry them several ways, which are all quite easy, do a search
