i used to store lens in Betashell (air tight). after some time my lens had fungus and caused the blades not functioning..I sent for repair and cost me few hundred bucks.

Airtight box, will ensure no atmospheric air, so the humidity there, get into the box.

But, if your gear are wet, or when you close the box the air inside is wet, plus the darkness inside the box after closed it, all favour fungus growth.

Therefore, desiccant like silica gel must be added and replaced regularly to keep a key element for fungus growth: humidity, away from your box...
