Step 1: Get Your Supplies

A tight-lid mason jar works best for storing your seeds. Ideally, you can place a package of desiccant in the jar. This helps suck up any excess moisture that could ruin our little treasures.

Step 2: Find a Good Place

Put your jar away in a dark place. Direct exposure to sunlight might harm the baby seeds. The ideal storage temperature should be from 86F (30C) below. Your drawer is a good place. The cupboard in the kitchen also works.

Step 3: Sow the Seeds

When the weather is nice & favorable, you can take the seeds out and sow them. The best storage duration is from 3-6 months. Older than this, the seeds might not have a high chance to sprout. Good luck!
