I’ve grown now a decent bit and have everything in order for the most part but one thing. Maybe not the second germination(say its 20 seeds), but the third germination(with the same set of seeds) my seeds have real issues sprouting.
With that said I was curious how veteran growers keep their seeds for longer periods of time? I just would leave them in the original bag in a dresser drawer where temperature can fluctuate dependent on summer or winter(between 64-82).
I keep mine in the freezer. You have to keep one thing in mind if you keep them in the freezer though. A film of frost will form over the seed and if you are taking them out of the freezer regularly to show friends your seeds or whatever, that film of frost will melt and could soak into the seed. This is what you don’t want to happen when you are storing them long term. So put them in and leave them there. The fridge doesn’t present this same problem but I don’t think the fridge preserves them as long either…
Also, wherever you put them, make sure it’s dark too!
