My desktop, hygrometer reads a 63 humidity level and a 23 temperature. what am I doing wrong? Should I season again?

Lots of reasons why humidity is low and it's hard to diagnose without knowing more but assuming you have a proper seal (google the dollar bill test) it all comes down to a few mechanics. Seasoning your humidor, if it wasn't done properly might help (but not if you have a bad seal). Sometimes changing the means of humidification - A lot of us like boveda packs, others use kitty litter. Most of us distrust the little foam hockey puck things that come with most inexpensive humidors.
Say more about your set up and we might be able to better diagnosis.
By the way, I actual prefer a lower humidity -- mine is right around 66% and sometimes a bit lower.
I've been using Boveda packs and re-charging them. They work great.
I find Boveda packs and the little round plastic things with the beads are a perfect combo.
