    It's never been a problem for me since all seeds are in sealed jars with dessiccant packs.

    I mostly keep mine refrigerated at 40F using jars with one .5 gram silica desiccant packet included, and have had no issues germinating after five years in storage. I keep an alphabetical spreadsheet with strain data, date acquired, etc. 20171230_231257[1].jpg 20171230_232318[1].jpg

    dark, cool drawer.

    not saying all my seeds that are that old will pop, but i have some blue moonshine seeds that are that old that i germ'd successfully a couple years ago.

    Getting any to go at that age sounds good to me. I have old seeds that have been in the deep freeze in mason jars for 25 yrs that used to be the bomb. Don't know any strain names but I truly believe sum are old northern light crosses. May just have to see what they will do come spring

    bump...

    @Arkitecht has a good idea. i have a mini fridge that is not doing jack shit.

    think i will move it in the grow room and put my seed containers in it.

    Would you say that the percentage of seeds which germinate has dropped as they age though?

    not as much as i would like.

    with that said, i seem to have a bunch of blue moonshine seeds my buddy created back in 2003 that are 75% viable.

    i also have some cali-connection pre-98 bubba seeds i just bought that won't pop :cuss:

    I use bottles like that for my seeds also. I bought them for tincture but they work sooo well for seeds. 4-5 years is about the longest I have kept seeds.

    I read it as the germination percent had not dropped as much as you'ld like. Started thinking wtf is he doing? I want a 50% germ rate so I dont have to grow all these fucking seeds out?
    :peace:
