I'm having problems with my humidor, maybe someone here can help.
It's a 75 count, and I've got 2 xikar jars for humidity. My house is rather dry, but I've bought a humidifier for my office, where the cigars are stored. It's been running about 6 hours now.The RH of the room is about 72%. If I close the humidor box, the RH inside the humidor drops to 54%. It's a digital hygrometer, and fairly accurate.
I wiped down the box with distilled water when I first purchased it.
Why is it that it's dropping so low inside? What can I do to save the cigars? It actually seems better to leave the box open, as the hygrometer shows 70% by the cigars.
