If you use Boveda packs, you have no need for a hygrometer. They're rock solid.

I wholeheartedly disagree with priming your new humidor this way. It's a great way to start off on the wrong foot with wet spots and warped lining.
I prefer the using 84% Boveda seasoning packs. They're specifically made for this procedure and in my opinion, the best damn product out there.

While we all have case humidifiers, guitar guys tend to also run a room humidifier to keep the room at a decent level to keep the cases from leaching humidity.
You can buy a decent one at Sears for $40, and if the fan is a little noisy, just run it while you're away.
And, of course, keep the humidor away from radiators or heating vents.

I was using as an example. Yes to much moisture can warp the box.

It sure can. I've seen people spray the inside of their humidors till it was dripping wet in a hope to hurry the seasoning process. They then wonder why the humidor has a funky smell, splinters and bad seal.

The humidor is an investment. It has to be taken car of. After all, it's going to house thousands of dollars worth of cigars. It needs to be at it's prime all the time.

While I don't think that the previously posted YouTube video is a terrible way to season as long as you don't douse the box as he states in the video but just lightly clean the sides with a damp sponge, I am interested in these Bovdea products. Thanks for sharing.

I've been a member here for about 5 years and I happen to be the Business Development Director at Boveda. I haven't visited in a while and embarrassed that I just now noticed this thread. Thank you very much for your strong recommendation and your business. If you think E46 Fanatics could handle a cigar pass, I'd be happy to start it and make sure the group never runs out of Humidor Bags/Boveda to keep the cigars perfect in transport. Let me know. Cheers, Charlie

So a quick little newb question.

I've seen some humidors where the cigars were left in their individual plastic wrapping and some where the cigar is out of its wrapper. What is the best long term for the cigar?

If it's in a humidor it doesn't really matter. Some people leave them on to keep the flavors from blending and to protect the wrapper from getting damaged, others take them off because there's no need to keep dry air out. Personally, I take them off.

It's really a matter of choice, my personal preference is no wrapper, but if I know that I'm aging that cigar for more than a year I will leave the wrapper on

Good points. I don't really plan on aging them it's just a matter of how fast or often I'm able to smoke. I would think being in the humidor, that they could be out and soaking up the air and aromas of the box?

Unless you store flavored cigars too, you don't have to worry about them getting weird flavor

That is why it is good to have multiple humidors. I have one i use for flavored sticks.
