Ok, I bought a humidor from my Platoon Sergeant about a week ago. He told me he never used it because he has other humidors that are just more practical for his lifestyle. Its a really nice 100 cigar humidor but I am having an issue. How long does it take to get it up and running? Since I have started seasoning it (As soon as I got it home the night I bought it) the humidity level has gone up only 4 notches. sitting now at 45% humidity. I have a non-scented sponge soaked with water and a rectangle humidifier in the bottom drawer. I am constantly filling up the rectangle, the sponge stays soaked with out me adding water. But the humidor is not really giving me much progress. Is this normal? How long does it usually take for a humidor this size to be fully seasoned?
Thanks for your help.
