Humidor - High RH Issue
Hello fellow cigar enthusiasts, I hope everyone is safe and well. To preface this discussion, I am new and did try to find this discussion myself before asking in the forum but I do still need some advice from the experts please.
I received my 25 cigar humidor last week and seasoned it for a full 24 hours using distilled water, my digital hydrometer showed 68 RH so I reasoned it again and left it closed for approx 6 hours.
I received my cigars the same evening and as excited as I was placed them in the humidor. My humidor w/cigars have had a constant reading of 76 RH for the past 2 days. I even tried Boveda 72% RH and still did not help.
Last night I removed the cigars and let the humidor sit and it showed 80 RH this morning, I now opened the humidor and let it air out for the past 5 hours and still showing about 77-80 RH.
What should i do here, have i over seasoned the humidor and ruined it? Should i let it air out more?
Thank you in advance,
