    You could put them with some damp peat moss in a plastic bag in the refrigerator, or if you already have pots for them you could plant them and put them in your garage. The main thing to watch out for is fungus if you don't have good air circulation and the rhizomes stay too wet.

    This what i do. Just open the bag every 2-3 weeks for ventilation, and for removing the white strip, who is harmless to the plants.
