    Sorry I don't have a spare. But a ziplock bag with a humi pillow will do the trick just fine till you get one. And welcome to the forum hope you enjoy your cigars brother.

    This is Good deal and great starter. it's going to be hard for anyone to send you one cheaper. Unless they're giving it away.

    i got the one on this page, and while it is TINY it works just fine. http://www.cigar.com/sales/index.asp?t=clearance be sure to learn what seasoning is an what you need to get it to a reasonable level. These guys here taught me a lot.....be sure to listen to them.

  • bought a humidor. good for 25 cigars, it's just a little moisture box you add water to. you cant actually put cigars in it, does anyone have a box laying around for another question? lol

    Humidors generally come with a humidifer disc. Search for a "seasoning" thread and make sure you do that(I would recommend a "no wipe" method). Also, I would buy a digital hygrometer as they are much more accurate. If you have any questions, feel free to pm me or post a question on here and im sure someone would be happy to help.

    Generally, I usually have quite a few spare humis, but with the holiday and all, I gave away a bunch of them and the few I have left are getting some custom work done on them.
    Afraid I'm not much help right now.

    Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy cigars and that's close enough.

  • any actual boxes though? I already bought a humidor after reading the advice posted. it goes into the cigar boxes & is 2-3" in diam. holds at 70%. does anyone ahve a box to hold say 50? pictures? send emails to [email protected] with price!

    i think you are confused.

    You bought a humidification device.

    It seems you still need a humidor.

    Honestly just buy the cigar.com deluxe humidor off of this page:


    It is cheap and works just fine
  • i can't put them in a regular wooden box of some sort? Thankyou for the link

    No, you need a humidor that has proper seals and Spanish cedar. Or you can just use a new Tupperware container. That would work fine and be a good start. Tupperware, or even a good cooler would work. You don't have to buy a humidor but if you do you need one made for cigar storage not just any wooden box will do.
  • thankyou for the info. i would've messed up my smokes, i thought the tupper ware. I bought a spanish cedar box finished in cherry wood. Very nice... 15$ too! included a humidifier wich i just bought hah.. Thanks for all the tips guys. sorry to be a newbie

    No apology needed. None of us were born with a cigar in our mouth and a humi on the shelf. We all had to learn somehow. It's what we're here for.
