Question How To Best Store Aqua Soil Leftovers?

Can I simply dry it out in an open bag and once it's fully dry put it on ziplock bag to store?

Moisture can lead to fungus/mold that we don't like so I favor something that allows for it to breathe a bit like paper sacks, boxes, etc. rather than plastic.

Well if he dries it out completely in the sun there's no way it will have a chance to grow mold.

I think it would be hard to know if something is "completely dry" especially since it will be layered. I've always kept mine in an open airy environment.
