You have grown your own mushrooms or acquired magic truffles, and now you are wondering how to store them properly. Storing magic truffles and mushrooms correctly is essential to maintain their potency and freshness. Here, we will discuss various methods to store your magic truffles and mushrooms.


The potency of your mushrooms or magic truffles can diminish or even cause them to mold if not stored correctly. This is due to the presence of the compound Psilocybin found in these fungi. The highest concentration of Psilocybin is present when mushrooms or truffles are freshly harvested. As they age or are not stored properly, the Psilocybin content may decrease, affecting their effects. Hence, it is crucial to store them correctly to get the best results from your magic truffles and mushrooms!

Fresh magic truffles can be kept in the refrigerator for about 2 to 3 months (preferably between 4°C-7°C). It is recommended to store them in the refrigerator as soon as they are delivered to maintain their quality. If you prefer to store them outside the fridge, we cannot guarantee their quality. However, if you still want to do so, it is best to store them in a dark, cool, and dry place. Paddo’s (mushrooms) work differently. If you have grown a beautiful flush of mushrooms with your grow kit and wish to store them, keep in mind that fresh mushrooms can only be stored in the fridge for a few days. Fortunately, there is a solution: drying your mushrooms!


You can dry your mushrooms and magic truffles, which can extend their shelf life up to 3 years! There are various ways to dry them. The most important step is to pre-dry them, allowing excess moisture to evaporate from the shrooms. Then, proceed to dry them with a suitable drying agent.

Once the mushrooms and truffles are dried, they can be stored for 2 to 3 years using the same methods mentioned above!


Do you want to store the truffles and mushrooms even longer? This is possible! It is essential to dry the magic truffles and mushrooms first before freezing them. If you follow the advice above, we can move on to this step. You have your dried mushrooms or magic truffles. Place them in a sealable package, such as a zip-lock bag or plastic bag. Ensure that the package is well-sealed, and then put it in your freezer. Keep in mind that they may lose some quality, but they can be preserved for a lifetime! If you want to use the mushrooms and truffles after freezing, allow them to thaw on the day you plan to use them for the best results.
