At 9:30 am today - about 92 hours since seasoning was initiated, two pre-humidified cigars were measured on their cap end at 65% using a CigarMedics Humidimeter. One cigar was placed into the bottom back corner of each humidor (see photos) to test whether moisture is being pulled, added or maintained this early in the seasoning process. The humidor with the Mini is holding steady in the 72% RH range while the humidor with the pouches has reached 79.5% RH.
According to the HumidiMeter manufacturer, the reading at the foot of the cigar will always be lower because the foot is open and moisture will enter/escape through the foot. It's also possible to test the head of the cigar which will give you a higher reading as the moisture is "trapped" by the cap.
You will also notice that different types of cigars will give you different readings even if they have been in your humidor for equal time due to how the different tobacco leaves hold moisture. We found that many customers prefer their cigars to have a foot reading 60%-65% because it will increase as you smoke the cigar, but this is all personal preference
