kuzi16:so... if the sheets are charged and a cigar comes in contact directly with it, will osmosis take over and get the cigar wet?
madurofan:So are your sticks in direct contact with the sheet?
bbc020: madurofan:So are your sticks in direct contact with the sheet?very much so...at first I lightly sprayed some water on the sheets...let them sit for a while, then placed it in my seasoned humidor then placed sticks on top. I'll pull one from the bottom tonight and report on my findings....they have been there for a couple months.
kuzi16:but you view them as more supplemental humidity recovery/control rather than doing most of your humidification?
Garen B:I'd be interested to see what bbc's experience with the sheets are, if the sticks aren't wet, I'm pulling out the puck and buying some sheets and a few more cigars!
0 That Guy 0:My heartfelt beads will be here tomorrow and my humidor is expected to be here Thursday.
I ordered heartfelt beads in a tube form and a puck. Realizing now that they are secondary forms of maintaining RH levels would you all recommend that I set them in the humidor with a bowl of distilled water and leave them for however long it takes for the RH to level off? Or if this isn't the case what is the best way for me to get started with these?Thanks
kuzi16:that lamp is fantastic.
madurofan: kuzi16:that lamp is fantastic.LMAO. I was thinking it must be awesome to finally have a table in the smoking area.
madurofan:I just thought I'd let everyone know a little about the sheets. I set them directly on the bottom of my desktop and took the beads out of the humi. THis is the humi that has been giving me the most trouble here lately. It has pretty much completely stabilized at 67%. Awesome! I did stick it in the humi without charging it at all.The only complaint I can see right now is that there is going to be no way to tell what percentage of the silica material is "charged".
