Thread: storing shroomz

as far as I know, increasing the surface area by cutting them up could increase the rate of oxidation and degradation of psilocybin into psilocin which is not as stable...? or it directly degrades the psilocin, into nothing..? one or the other!
you could leave them in the shoebox with "Damp-Rid" wrapped up in a moisture-permeable-something, not in contact with the shrooms... or a sachet of silica gel (which may have even come in your shoe box if you bought them!)
silica gel has an absorbent surface area of 800m2 per gram!! ..or something fucking ridiculous like that
the benefit of using a dessicant means they can be kept in an airtight container (less oxidation) with no risk of colonising microbes or rotting! :-)
...I think this was covered in the previous 4 pages (& 3 years) of thread somewhere, oh well, I welcome the opportunity to have my understanding critiqued!

This year I taped a mesh sieve onto my dehumidifier, ran dry air through the mushies for two days until brittle dry, then put them in an air tight container with some paper towels, so far no mould, see how it goes.
