Long Term Storage ILGM Seeds ---Should I pierce the packaging?

Hello…I received several new strains of ILGM seeds.
They were packaged in small “puffed up” and sealed plastic pods.
I am storing them in a mason jar, in a small refrigerator.
Should I pierce this plastic pod for best storage practices?

Thanks in advance!


No, leave the package intact.
Don’t want the seeds to dry out and refrigerators have moisture removal built in to keep foods dry.
I just store mine in a cool dark drawer in the original packs. I have germed seeds over two years old at this point.


I second @Spiney_norman this is the way i do it as well and with good results
