    Someone once told me that the fridge would be the best way to store San Pedro cuttings, but I am not to sure. Won't the cold damage the San Pedro cuttings in any way?

    A cool, semi-shaded dry environment is the best.

    Are they dried or fresh, if they were fresh I would be tempted to put them in an air tight bag to stop decomposition and the fresher they are the cooler i would keep them, if they were bone dry just out of the sun and cool would probably be fine.

    Just a question but if you are using them for mescaline why not preform an extraction so its easier to store? But i may be wrong

    If you want to store them long term and are not going to plant them you could slice em up and dry em.

    The best storage for cuttings to plant later or to use later is to have them in
    a cool, shady, dry place. I have had limeaid in the fridge that started
    deteriorating in 3 or 4 days. I store that in the freezer now.

    Ths is true. They will even grow without roots and strech towards
    light. can stay good for a few weeks in a place like this.
    But for long term storge drying or suryup are the best methods
