    hey all, looks like im your noob of the day. =)


    I'm lazy & to inexperianced/poor to mess around drying out my shrooms, is there any good way to keep them fresh for a fairly short about of time (talking in days rather than weeks.) How long will an air tight container in the fridge keep the lil guys safe for?


    Ta,

    Do not keep them air tight, as they will start to rot. They will last for a week if they are mexicans. Other species have different "best before..."

    Fresh magic mushrooms only stay fresh for 3 to 15 days, depending on the climate and the speciesof mushrooms. Preferably keep fresh mushrooms in the fridge

    Keep fresh shrooms in the fridge at 2 degrees. As people above said different species alter the time they keep fresh, just try it and see.

    If they are fresh they need to be stored in paper bag in the fridgr, and ale to breath, If dried, they need to be vaccum sealed and placed in the freezer. Fresh will last up to two weeks if stored properly in th eveggie bin inside a paper bag. If packaged dry correctly, they can remain good for upwards of two years.
