I bought a lens that has some fungus on it. Unfortunately, I can't do anything about it right now, for at least a couple of months.

How should I store it until I can deal with it properly?

Would a sealed dry container in the freezer be better than leaving it in a cupboard at room temperature?


Leave it with all of the glass exposed to sunlight on a regular (daily) basis. UV light does not allow fungi to grow. Also leave it as far from all of your other photographic equipment as you can.
