I will wrap it with newspaper when keeping it. If you put it in a box or wrapped in a lap, moisture accumulates and mold grows. When storing the pot, it is best to wrap it in a newspaper and keep it. The newspaper absorbs moisture from outside and prevents dust in the air from invading.
Let's keep it in a well-ventilated place such as a cupboard or a bunko. It is good to avoid under humid sink etc because moisture tends to accumulate.
