Default Desi Murli - 3 months until it started to gorw mold.

So friends of mine ordered some DM Khous and kept it at my place since we all usually end up smoking there any way. It was kept in ziploc tupperware and kept out of the light/extreme temp etc.

But after 3 months it started growing mold. We usually smoke through the DM alot faster than 3 months so we never expected it to go bad.

Has anyone had a similar experience? Any thoughts on what to do to prevent mold growing besides smoking all your DM really quick? (<-- I like this solution the best!)

anything that is in a cool dark, and maybe even warm place has the potential to grow mold, even a cool placelike your fridge grows mold. Smoke up, or buy smaller sizes so you dont waste all that shisha.

besides a cool dark place and the fridge, you can put it in the tightest container you can jam it into, the less air the better

it has no preservatives

even better, if you can vac seal it you could try that. would be a pain in the ass if you do use it often though.

What you could do, along these lines, if you have enough free time that is, is perhaps vacuum seal them into smaller bags. It would be like 50g samplers and do it that way... but i hate doing more than one or two vacuum seals at a time myself...
I know fridges remove moisture but *i don't think* (someone please correct me here if i am wrong) they can remove moisture from a vacuum sealed bag.. so you could then put those extra vacuum sealed bags in the fridge. Plus if you add honey/glycerine to "revive" the DM pre-seal it would be able to "marinate" so to speak. It was also of course be totally air tight.
However i am speaking in theory. Not out of actually doing this. Just an idea.

i dont see how a fridge could remove moisture from s vac sealled bag, no where for it to go. things stay preserved in vacum very well.

I know, right?

I ordered 500 grams about three weeks ago. Almost gone now.

One of the best things about DM is the price. Just order more, and smoke it faster!

I get worried about it going bad after a week or two, but I guess I don't have anything to be afraid of.

I've had a bag of plain in the same container for about a year now. I smoke it every now and then. So far it's stored fine.

Invest in a vacuum sealer.
