Storing Dahlias

I am sure everyone here has their own method, but I have one that has been great. After digging, cleaning and dividing, I put the tubers in bags of various sizes, either Ziploc bags or old bread bags, identify them, then cover the tubers with extra dry Pro-Mix and seal the bag. They go in the coldest corner of the cellar, and my success rate has been virtually 100% for many years.

Chuck, I was in a hurry today and managed to get the digging fork into 2 of the tubers. I'm wondering, after reading all the posts I could find here on the subject, whether I should dust the cuts with cinnamon? I'd rather not use an anti-fungal powder. I'll be storing them in plastic store bags with dry grow mix as you recommend. They did amazingly well in our short season here!

And I'd like to have them to plant again in the spring, so any advice will be appreciated.
