Question About Storing
    #4591707 - 08/28/05 07:11 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

I have recently acquired about an oz of fresh mushrooms, I think. It is a very large bad that is about 25-35 good sized mushrooms (cubensis)I need to store them for a week, but possibly longer. I want to know if they will go bad or lose potency in a plastic bag for a week. There was a lot of moisture in the bag and I don't know if they could mold or anything. Somebody please help with the best way to store for a week.

Put them in a collander and dry them in front of a fan.
They will rot if left in that plastic bag.
After a couple days they should be good and dry. Put them in a dry baggie and keep them in a dry place out of sunlight.

Dry them - bone dry - as Nunciate recommends. I put mine, powdered, in a bowl inside an air-tight plastic tub together with some anhydrous calcium chloride - better known as the crystals that go in moisture traps - inside the fridge. Freezer would probably be fine too. Keeps it cool, dark and bone dry. No loss of potency in two months. The calcium chloride is not good for you, don't mix it with the shrooms, I put the whole moisture trap inside the plastic tub.

They should snap like a cracker when they are dry enough.

Absense of evidence is not evidence of absense...

"Religion is a defense against a religious experience"
              Carl G. Jung

 
"So really, ordinary reality is a kind of chemical habit, sanctioned by culture, which says it's okay to use certain drugs, eat certain foods, and have certain sexual behaviors. However, when you transcend all this pre-conditioning by returning to the original wisdom of the animal body, then you discover this immense dimension of opportunity. For some people, it is a frightening risk. To me, that's the psychedelic experience."
Terence McKenna

if stored in an air-tighth container (glass jar) in a cool drak place, they should last for years if dried properly
