Arno--How do you store them moist?  In a refrigerator on a wire rack with=a
pan of water in it, say at about 45=B0 F (5-10=B0 C)?

Wrapped in moist sphagnum?.  What kind of peat moss?  How do you keep the=m
from drying out in the refrigerator?-- (if that's where they are)  sealed=in
a plastic bag  or wrapped in a plastic ?  Is there no  problem with
insufficient air circulation?

Your comment about "very wet"  suggests that the way for me to go is the
opposite of what I've been doing.
