Initially, the goals were to compare and characterize HumiForm and what are reffered to as "84% RH" pouches in seasoning two identical, new 50-stick humidors, and determine if HumiForm might be able to achieve seasoning better and more quickly than the 14 days needed with pouches.
HumiForm achieved 84% RH in just 5.5 days, while the 84% RH pouches were less 75% RH at that point in time. The HumiForm filament was reduced from approximately 6" of exposure to 4" (2" on each side of tee). We contacted the Pouch supplier and learned the pouches will most likely not reach 84%RH, and more likely get into the low to mid 70% RH range. At the end of Day 6, we further reduced the HumiForm filament to around 2" with the target of matching the relative humidity at the end of 14 days. At the end of day 12, we made another reduction of the filament to where none is exposed outside of the tee.
