    50-70 deg F air tight jars.
    The fridge is good for 2 years but not for the long hall, not the freezer.
    They found grains in the pyramids that sprouted after 1,000 + years.
    The germination drops off after 2 years, have used seeds 5 to 7 years old.
    For older seeds I plant in small pots for transplanting due to the germination rate.

    i store my seeds in pill containers and in a cardboard box i have thousands of seeds i just make sure to put electrical tape around the pill containers and make sure to label them on the top with genius and plant type. i typically use the latin name due to my backround in plant sciences but the normal everyday name will work aswell

    kilner jars for the seeds that cannot be replaced easily
    kilner jars are easy to get and use and work very well. don't use an old vintage one though, as the rubber gasket may have deteriorated, if the seeds are worthy just buy a new jar.
    other seeds (replaceable) I just keep in ziplocks which are not so great for long term, and I notice they don't really maintain the quality and viaability too long at all.
    you can always drop seeds in small ziplocks with dessicant and put these in kilner jars to store many types in one jar.
