Boveda Reading Higher Than Normal

I have some 69% bovedas in my tupperdores and humidors and they are all reading 72-73%.  It’s disappointing because I am aiming for a perfect balance and they are supposed to put out the RH that’s advertised.  Any thoughts?

    Assuming your container is sealed --My guess is, your 'Gars are too humid and it will take time for them to balance out. The Boveda will work, they just needs days or weeks to make everything nice and happy. The Boveda you got are two-way, so they will remove excess moisture but it takes time. Patience is key.

    Your hygrometer may be inaccurate.
