Hai friends

tried to get some advice in ' tips and technique section' but ???
so posting again here!!!

My lens is back after service ( fungus cleaning - 24-70 and 70-200 F 2.8 IS)
Can even body tell me ' how to store the lens '

I used to use my gears once or twice in a month
once i used, i will blow it and clean it carefully and will cover with a warm type cloth
and will keep it in a thermocol box which filled with silica jell

did the same for last 1-1 and half years, but still ended up with fungus
did i done anything wrong?

i dont want the same thing to happen again

so please help me, please guide me the right way to store those expensive pieces of glasss

Thanks guys

Outside of any bags in a dry room, in the sunlight, some fresh air... absolutely no problems here ;)
