Possible mold in humidor while seasoning
I am seasoning my new humidor. I have digital caliber IV hygrometer that I calibrated twice with salt test. The humidor is a Mantello 100 count glass top. I did not wipe down, only put distilled water on sponge and let it sit in there for about 1-1 1/2 weeks. I also have Xikar’s gel humidifier in there that I used Xikar’s PG solution to fill. Now my reading for my hygrometer has been up to 85-90 and after doing some research on these threads I saw that patience was key and usually try and let it sit for 2 weeks to let the wood get seasoned from the sponge. But my humidity never came down and now I think I have mold in the humidor. My question is what do I need to do next, open it and let it dry out or I took out sponge should it start to drop on it’s own the humidity levels, just at a lost on what my next move is so any help is greatly appreciated, thanks. Also, this is my first attempt at seasoning a new humidor.
