Loss of clarity from storing their scopes in dark safes or closets?

Hi Everyone,
A few years ago I had a few camera lenses go blurry on me. A technician told me that it is a common occurence when people store lenses in a dark, humid place ( in my case it was my closet off the master bathroom). Apparently a type of mold grows on the lenses rendering them blurry, and it can't be cleaned because it etches into the lens.

He suggested that in the future I put my new lenses on a shelf and point them towards a window. The light would prevent the mold from growing.

My question is this: Has anyone here experienced a loss of clarity from storing their scopes in dark unventilated safes or closets?
