I put my muscaris in the part of the fridge where I store fruits, but I heard that some people store them in the freezer where it's much colder.

However, won't the freezer freeze them to death? Which one is better?

Put them in the coldest part of the refrigerator, which is normally the part closest to the freezer. The freezer would be a little too cold and most of the refrigerator is too warm. 25-30 degrees Fahrenheit is usually best. If you keep your refrigerator below forty degrees, it will probably do fine.

Do you mean the coldest part of the refrigerator, or a particular temperature, or...? Depending on the design, the location relative to the freezer differs. –  Ed Staub Dec 8 '11 at 13:10

Don't you mean the part of the fridge closest to the freezer in your last comment? –  Daniel δ Dec 9 '11 at 19:15
