Are they dried. If not you want to dry them.
Then you can place them in a paper bag after they are cracker dry, and then place the bag in the fridge.
Do not use plastic bags.

Ive never heard of that 0_o...

Just keep em dry, and in a dark area and they should store fine Im pretty darn sure.

Or make them into chocolates...Ive never heard of those losing potency just with time at least.

i had about 3 grams of mush stored in the little slot in playstation 2 were you put the internet thing for playing online. Its dark and not well ventalated and i brewed no more than half of it into a tea and had a normal mush trip. Very enjoyable. So under those circumstances i can vouch that your mush will stay potent but other than that im not sure.

Yes, keep them as dry as possible first. An air-tight, moisture-proof container ASAP would be best.  :thumbup:  If you can get find Damp Rid at some point--it's a food safe desiccant--you can add about a teaspoon full of it wrapped in a coffee filter.  Seal your coffee filter "baggie" up with a rubber band or tape or paper clip or staples, and slip it in with your mushrooms.  It will keep them cracker dry and go a long way towards preserving potency.

your shrooms will not loose potency if not in the fridge. I have had shrooms that were cracker dry and stored in an airtight Tupperware container in a dresser drawer last 2 years with no loss in potency.

If they are as dry as bones found in death valley, simply vacuum seal them in a autoclave or freezer storage type bag. Them - place that bag & a few desiccant packages in a glass jar - with a tight fitting lid. Then store the jar in a clean - dry - relatively cool place - for safe-keeping. They will remain POTENT - for years.
