Does storing dried shrooms in the fridge kill the potency or not?
    #8790966 - 08/18/08 03:08 PM (9 years, 6 months ago)

People tell me different things, some say it will kill the potency and some say it wont.

So my question is, how long can i have it in the fridge and will it kill the potency or not?.

i have my dried shrooms in very air tight ziploc bags, not plastic but some kind of paper or something white on the outside and some silverish material on the inside. and i have a regular plastic ziplock bag over theme. can i just put theme in the fridge or do i need a glass jar?. I have to much shrooms right now :smile: and i need to store theme so i can keep theme at least three months more. i dont want to do shrooms every week i like breaks 1-2 months. So it would be nice if i could store theme in the fridge without killing theme.

I dont think it will kill potency, But, if they arent TOTALLY dry, and it isnt TOTALLY airtight.... I could see some potential problems. Keep an eye open for condensation inside the bag.....

cool,dark,dry dresser drawer will work just as well.

The best is a glass jar, and that's good you know that plastic is no good. Keep them in a glass airtight jar in a dark space that will remain cool.

no, but keep them in a warmer part and if you have a dry drawer keep them in their and also keep them in air tight container.  The fridge is moist and will f' them up.  Also, if they are in the colder part of the fridge they may freeze and then they turn to complete goo.

Well if i have theme in a glass jar or ziplock bag in room temp they will only last 6 months right?. i want theme to last 8-9months. So would it be ok to store theme in the fridge for 2 months?. they are dried but not cracker dried.

i think they will be ok, psilocibyn isnt as unstable as you have been led to believe, a few monthes ago a guy posted on here about eating some shrooms that were over a year old, stored in a closet, he had a good time.

What about if you're storing the shrooms in a dark spot, where temparatures fluctuate from 60 degrees (at night w/ air conditioner on) to 90 degrees (middle of the day w/o AC)

You don't need to keep them in the fridge.

THEY NEED TO BE CRACKER DRY BEFORE YOU SEAL THEM IN PLASTIC OR GLASS!!!
THEY WILL ROT.

Get them cracker dry and put them in a masonry jar, the ones with rubber seals are the best. You can keep them in jars like this for at least a year. Try to get them full of shrooms though, pack them nice and tight to get as much air out as possible.

I left some shrooms on top of a ducted heating vent on some cardboard to dry them out (not my usual method) and forgot about them, the heating has been on every day for four months or so as we have had a freezing winter in Melbourne. I ate these last night with a mate and they were still incredibly potent. Similarly, I've left shrooms in an unsealed bag for 8 months with little to no potency loss.

I recommend storing them in your anus for quick, easy access. Punch a few holes in the bag and go jogging for a nice mystery dose! :thumbup:

Alternatively, I saw some teks in the grow forums recently for putting your shrooms in capsules. Definitely seems like the way to go if you're looking for a long term storage solution.
