I grew some p. cubenis and dried them. I then stuck them in a jar so I could keep them for a while. About a month later, today, me and my friend decided to trip. I haven't looked at the jar until today, and when I looked I noticed that the mushrooms had grown mold or mildew on them. The jar was, as far as I know, air tight. Needless to say I am disappointed. I just wanted to know wether or not anyone else have ever gotten this and what I can do to prevent it from happening again. Thx.

Airtight is good, but only if the mushrooms are cracker-dry. One way to ensure this is to store them with dessicant (not touching the shrooms, of course).

Either the fruits were not dry, or the container was not airtight enough to keep out traces of moisture. Not too many other things will cause rotting.
