As far as RH in my new humidor, it seems to be trying to hold pretty well. 15 days with the Boveda seasoning packs- ( 4 of them) and now running 4 drymistat tubes inside. RH slipped down to 65/66 now but is holding there. I have one more drymistat tube in a ziplock with the Acid cigars I bought . Once I use them up I could add that tube to humidor as well. It is a 100 cigar size Ambassador glass top. Any thoughts on that RH (66) for my NC cigars ? Thanks in advance for any and all advice and suggestions.

That is an acceptable and I would say even preferable RH. I try and keep mine at around 65% as that seems to be optimum for a cigar to smoke well. Any higher then 67% and the draw starts to get a little tight and I have a higher incidence of burn issues. As a general rule 62-65% RH should work well.

I agree with Neal, I keep mine as close to 65 as possible. During the winter it gets as low as 62, summer it'll go to 67-68.

I agree as well. If your hydrometer is accurate, 65% is the magic number. I let mine drop below that before I introduce more distilled water.to my humidifiers
