Humidor holding humidity with no humidifier

My humidor is holding 67% humidity (according to my digital) but there’s no humidifier in there at all. Just cigars, should be fine right? Efficient even?

    What kind of humidor? If it’s wood…it won’t hold for long. If it’s an airtight container it will hold longer as long as you don’t open it.

    Yeah it’s wood. It’s been like this for a few weeks now. I didn’t plan on leaving it like this but it’s just holding

    If you live in an area that has higher humidity it will hold a little bit. But wood is a porous substance so it will draw the humidity from your cigars ultimately drying them out. You will definitely need some form of humidification. I’d suggest Boveda

    Boveda will help ensure it doesn't fluctuate too much. Just toss 'em in and forgot about them. If your hygrometer is accurate then the bovedas should last pretty much indefinitely. You also might live in a place with a decent enough humidity to keep it stable, but it will fluctuate with the seasons regardless.
