How to store seeds???

I bought some seeds and I want to grow some this year and the rest next year. How can I store the cacti and succulent seeds? Proper temperature and condition for storing? and Do you know how long the seeds can be viable? several months or years??? [nutz]

Hello H.W Lee

This is what I found out for you, you seem to be able to keep them for years, but viability will slowly decrease. Store them dry and cool. Stored seed may become dormant and take a long time to germinate. Storing for a year shouldn't give you too much trouble except that germination may be erratic and a little slower than fresh seed.
