Not a good idea to put them in the door of a frost-less refrigerator. How do you think they stay frost-less?
They heat the walls of the doors periodically, so the temp near the walls fluctuates a lot more than the center of the fridge does.

Somehow from the title i hoped for liquid nitrogen to be involved... ;)

I what too but my 1 dollar store doesn't sell liquid nitrogen...;)

Cool pod. In the video you put a lot of water in the bottles before adding the plants. Do you want the herbs to be mostly immersed in water? Thanks for sharing!

Just enough to cover the stems in water.
