I hate to admit this, but with all the points you make, it's a hard argument to win. The tupperware route certainly takes the cake in both the effective and the low maintenance categories. If I'm being honest with myself, while smoking the cigars is certainly the best part, I think part of the enjoyment comes from the humidor too. It's pretty cool when a friend comes by and sees it because it always starts a conversation. Either he's never been over before and so he asks about it, or he enjoys the hobby too and we end up talking about it for a bit. And, I enjoy looking at them myself. Part of the enjoyment comes from looking at them and looking forward to smoking them. I know this probably sounds pretty corny. I guess at the end of the day I will do what works, I'm just hoping I can make this work. I'm okay if it takes more effort than the minimum necessary, but obviously there is a threshold too. At some point I will move on to a different storage method, but I just don't think I'm there yet. Don't get me wrong I'm not discounting your advice I truly believe you are right, but what can I say I guess I'm stubborn. You can all tell me you told me so later.



Naw! Let's save some time here...I'll tell you "I told you so" right now!

Keep some Victor Sinclairs, Gurkha Black Dragon robustos, and the like in your humidor for show and keep the good sticks in tupperdores. That way everybody is happy!

I gave him a thanks over in the Bombs Away forum, but I wanted to make sure I recognized him here too, Camshaft83 really took care of me. I got back and this came in today.

So, I took out the heartfelt beads today to check their hydration and noticed two or three of them were orange. Does anyone know what is making them do this and if it's okay? Thanks. I've only used distilled water on them.

Fair enough, thanks for the help. Now that I read up on that, something that isn't talked about in there; once they turn orange, do they still turn clear when hydrated?

They will still have a brown tint to them. Mine are 5 years old and still working like new

I guess what I'm asking is can you still look at them and tell a difference between hydrated ones and ones that need to be hydrated?

Absolutely! When dry they will still be whitish while when wet they will be clear with a brown tint
