correct humidity, but dry sticks.
i have a humidor about the size of a shoebox. it has a top tray, and a glass top. the analog hygrometer is innacurate, so i bought one thats digital, and can be calibrated. i calibrated it in a ziplock overnight with damp salt in a bowl. the humi has heartfelt beads in the round 3" container they came in. 70% version, and for a bigger humi than mine. the disc lays in the bottomfacing up. the temp is from 66-70F, and humidity is anywhere from 67-72%, and my sticks are dry feeling and tasting. the box is about 1/2 full. the sticks feel dry and slightly crackly when squeezed. how can they be dry when they have been in the same humidity range for at least 2 months. also when i add distilled water to the beads, the humidity goes to 78% for a few days then settles back to the normal 67-72% range.
