 Keep reeds to lengthen lives?
Author: HIROSHI

Last night I read a booklet by a Japanese pro.He insists that reed's life can be lengthened by drying up them after purchasing for long time. If we keep reeds for one month,its life can be doubled than when we use them just after purchasing,and if we keep 1 year, 4 times longer.Of course he saids reeds boxes should be opened after purchasing and kept flat somewhere dry like on the shelf near ceiling(very dry place).

Does this make sense? Does anyone have same experience?
