I don't store mine in water...as long as they are in a good airtight container, they should be fine without the water. Then, again, I don't think putting them in water would hurt either. Sorry, not much help I guess. Just that mine are fine without the water!
I never put them in water, I just put them into a sealed tupperware container and they last fine. They also freeze well, although I've found that they soften a bit after thawing (ie. I'd use them in cooked dishes, but wouldn't toss them straight onto a salad).
