72% too much?
I’ve been storing my cigars at 72% because that’s what everyone here (Georgia) tells me to store them at, but after reading more and more online it seems 67-69% is the sweet spot for preventing mold, is storing them at 72% long term a bad idea? Should I drop to 69?
70/70 is a myth, humidity should be in the 60s especially if your temps are higher. At 72 the risk for mold and soggy cigars is higher.

And where it's humid there go low like 62-65. IMHO
I’ll be dropping them down to 65, thank y’all
It's nice that you're accepting the forum's advice, but please pay attention to what you're smoking and see what your own thoughts are as to how the humidity change affects flavors and performance of your cigars.
By the way, 72 72 should also be fine, really, but you're on the hairy edge of mold growth.
Hairy edge hehe
@peter4jc well I’ll be storing them for possibly months at a time, and the humidity in Georgia is pretty high, especially with me living by a lake, so I figure this will be a good time to atleast try 65, I may like it more and it’ll certainly run down the risk of mold a bit it seems. These forums are full of aficionados, so I’ll take yalls advice any day of the week.
Hope you stick around too. We don't get too many guys around here who actually read 😆
Sometimes, when it's one of those multi paragraph posts about an argument I don't care about:
