Too cold too low?

VisionVision Posts: 5,091 ✭✭✭✭✭
All of my humidors are sitting at 62deg/62-64RH. Is this too low? I won't be smoking much in the next few months so its just for storage. I am looking into a small heater for the room they are in just in case.

    At that range I don't think you would have to worry about mold, but the lower humidity may let them dry out a bit.

    get the RH up to 65% and you should be fine.

    Yup, I wouldn't stress too much, but a little bump wouldn't be a bad thing. I would add though that a bump in rh will be a lot easier if its a hair warmer in there.

    where do you store them btw? if its in a garage/basement, you might think to bring them into your living space for a few months of the year, considering your location. But honestly, cigars are a lot more durable than we give them credit for.

    Right now, humidibbititty and temp are both fluctuating wildly outside chez webmost. Last night we had rain. This morning, fog and 99%. Right now, sixties and 54%. By tomorrow, who knows. Inside is just as fickle. In Winter, we turn the heater way way down at night, so temp may drop to 50; then the day starts and the heater goes on, which dries the joint out; then evening hits and we fire up the hearth, which dries things even more. The humidor, otoh, stays relatively the same.
