I have about 40-50 sticks in a small tupperdore. They are sitting around 70% humidity. I want to get them down the the low 60’s. What’s the best way and approximate how long would it take? I’m not sure how long cigars hold their humidity.
Thx

A little more information is needed. What are you using for humidification, do you have a digital or analog hygrometer, and have you done a calibration test

Currently I’m using Boveda 65. I’m thinking my new sticks were higher humidify hence the upper 60’s humidity. I’m using a digital Govee that I just checked calibration. Ambient is 58.

If the ambient RH is lower than your target.....you could just bag the Bovida's for a while, and leave the container open for a few hours....??
Yep, probably have to close and open it a few times, then hopefully will settle in.
