How to Humidify a Cigar Humidor
Without proper humidification, cigar humidors are just boxes. They trap moisture and keep it from escaping, but it’s the cigar humidifier that creates the conditions that keep your cigars from drying out. There are five types of cigar humidifiers: floral foam, crystal gel, silica beads, humidipaks, and electronic humidifiers. Some are low-tech. Some are hi-tech. Some are cheap. Some are expensive. If you’re serious about cigars, you need to know how they work and what they do.
Cigar humidifiers require maintenance and need to be actively monitored in order to function properly. Remember when it has to be filled and replaced and make sure you know whether there’s a danger of it releasing too much moisture and over saturating your cigars. Also be sure your cigar humidifier is properly sized. Make sure you know how large a space it can humidify and how many cigars it’s designed to handle. Using a cigar humidifier that’s too large or too small runs the risk of damaging your cigars by exposing them to excessive or inadequate moisture.
