There are times when marijuana seeds won’t sprout or germinate because of improper storage. Proper way of storing with the right level of humidity and temperature will make the seeds last for longer years. The best way to store marijuana seeds is to keep them in a sealed an airtight container. Although placing the seeds in a room temperature is fine, it is best to store them in a cool and dry place. You can store the cannabis seeds in this type of condition for a longer period without losing their quality.
How desiccants help when storing marijuana seeds in a container?
Also known as humectant, a desiccant like silica gel or calcium oxide, has a high affinity for water that’s why it is used as drying agent. This hygroscopic substance will help in removing excess humidity in the container. While the marijuana seeds are stored in an airtight container and in a cool, dark place, an amount of moisture may be present. With desiccant inside the container, excess humidity will be removed.
Where is the best place to store marijuana seeds?
There are many ways of storing marijuana seeds but two of the most common methods is storing the seeds in a refrigerator or in a dark, cool and dry place. Marijuana seeds can be stored in a vacuum or airtight container and placed inside the refrigerator. Some growers who have tried storing the cannabis seeds in a refrigerator and freeze them said that the seeds can maintain their quality for 10 years or more. While some growers said that freezing the marijuana seeds will make them last for years, others said it is not recommended. Freezing the pot seeds will damage their cellular structure because of too much cold which may then result to poor germination rate. Marijuana seeds are also best stored in a cool, dark and dry place like a cupboard. To avoid the build-up of moisture and molds, place a desiccant inside the container where you put the marijuana seeds.
