    All you can do is either wait it out, until it stabilizes or put some 84%? Bovida seasoning beads and see how that does.
    If it were me, I'd give it more time.
    We're talking a substantial sized unit, so while 1 week is barely adequate for a desk top humi, it isn't even close for that thing.

    Don't trust that hygrometer either unless you have calibrated it. I would reccomend gettting a digital one and calibrate it also. 
    Nice looking unit. Good luck!

    You may want to wander over to the newbee welcome thread and introduce yourself. There are lots of great people here and loads if info, but I am not one of them and know nothing.  :D

    Do you have a thermometer in the unit? Next I would google Relative Humidity. You will discover that temperature plays a big roll in relative humidity. as the temp. rises and falls the RH changes. 
    I am a happy man. You have made me very grateful. For this is the very first time that the Crown Jewels have ever been adequately & deliriously praised by an unprejudiced person. Still it is the cigars' own fault that this is so for it is a cigar which excites envy & jealousy in the smoker because he knows & feels the truth of which you have said; that there is no other cigar that is just like it. There are cigars which resemble it but only in appearance, not in spirit & not in the ability to dare & do. There is no other cigar that can make a person want to go away & get by himself & think this life over & wonder if it is altogether worth while. I will send you some more when you get out. Let me know. Any man of fine intelligence who is acquainted with Crown Jewels prizes them above any other gems & saves them & hoards them. I gave Harry Rogers a box two years ago & he has them yet. Let me know when you are out.

    If your going off the hygrometer on that drawer dont. Buy a digital one and calibrate it. You should keep that at least 50% full which will stabilize it also

    Those analog hygometers are notoriously inaccurate.
