Yes they are in gel, same as I have bought them. I have not broken the seal/ opened/ taken them out/ cleaned them yet. They are kept as it is just on the table, only getting some indirect sunlight from an half open window.
Should I keep them in a cool dark place or under bright light? The air temperature is between 32 - 36°c here currently, so I'm worried, and was thinking if keeping them in the refrigerator was a good idea?
And, how many days can I expect them to survive like this?
