I wrap mine in a wet paper towel, then silver foil, then put it in the fridge.

This. I have been doing this for years. Most years I do not need to buy new aravos but it depends on how the calendar falls out.
Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.

IME if Arovos are surrounded by many (36) Haddasim and put back into the plastic Lulav bag, it will keep everything airtight enough so that they stay fresh enough until Hoshana Rabba.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Why would one have 36 Haddasim?
