The only freezer I have at home is a self-defrosting freezer, and I suspect
that's not good for longer term storage.  So I am playing it safe and
putting the pollen in the -80 here at the lab.  I suppose the -20 would be
okay too, if it's working for you.

Is your freezer frost free or not? And how long (~years) have you used
pollen stored at -20?
