Number of Boveda packs

If this is answered somewhere else, sorry to ask it again. I couldn't find it if it was. Anyway... I have a small desktop humidor. It says it holds 10, but I have 12 in there right now cuz of the smaller sized cigars I happen to have in there. I know the boveda system says to have 2 packs for the first like 25 cigars or something like that. But do I really need two of them in that small of an environment? I had two in there, but the cigars seemed too soft. I now have only one in there. Would that be alright considering how few cigars are in the humi?

    Do you have a hygrometer in the humi?

    Is it the analog or digital and did you calibrate it?and if so what did it read?

    Digital and it read 75 when i calibrated it using the salt method. And the seals on the humi are good cuz i checked those too. Should i maybe switch to a lower rh since it's a smaller humi?

    One will be fine in that confined space if everything is operating properly .

    I like mine to be in the 65-68% range. I'd go with just one too.
