simple question.. "after" the mushrooms have dried (cubensis in my case) does storing them temporarily (3 or 4 days) in lets say a ciggarette celephane plastic thing affect the potency of the mushroom at all.. seems like i read somewhere plastic makes the psylocine and psilocybine break down faster.. is that true even in dried mushrooms and for such a short time?

true with dried as well, but I wouldnt worry about it in 3-4 days.
*edit-Wax/parchment paper is good. brown paper bags work too.

Heat and light break down the active chemicals. Store them in the fridge and should last without much potencey loss for months or longer as long as they are bone dry. Never heard that about plastic breaking down the active chemicals.

Id leave them in the plastic to be honest - so they dont absorb any moisture from the fridge.

So what about storage in air tight containers? Is that good...

I was wondering what is the best LONG TERM (2 months) storage... can they wait 2 months?

plastic will promote oxidation which in return will fuck ur shrooms up go with paper bags

A jar of honey is the best (and tastiest) way to store shrooms for a long time.
Dry the shrooms out and just put em in some honey. Wait a while (few weeks to a few months, whatever) for the psilocybin to be absorbed (the honey will literally turn blue), then take the shrooms out and put some more in. Theres a whole article about that somewhere but i forgot the link. Bluehoney or something...

If the mushrooms are cracker dry and the plastic bag is 100% air tight then you have nothing to worry about. It's fresh mushrooms in plastic bags that causes problems.

No problem. The psilocybin will stay preserved for years in the honey.
