Do Boveda's get moldy?

Here in Arizona it is all about giving off moisture. I have a few humi's I maintain so I just stack Boveda's, as they dry out I re-hydrate and throw them back in the stack. I noticed some black on a couple which I assume is mold. Should I spread them out across the cigars, I have been trying to avoid that

    Do you use distilled water?

    I noticed that on a few of mine, but the printing was faded under it, think it is ink on mine.

    That could be the case, I just tossed them, will get some bigger ones so I dont need to stack them.

    I don’t know if others have found this out but eventually the small bovedas at least run out and won’t recharge anymore. No matter how long I soak them in distilled water they don’t get any fluffier and fill up again. Granted these are several years old and were dryer than an old whor es **** lol
