Cigar Humidification

Can a humidifier be placed on the bottom of a cigar humidor?

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Q. The humidifier in my humidor is supposed to be fastened to the lid by means of Velcro, but inevitably ends up falling off. Is there any reason the humidifier can’t sit in the base of the humidor? It’s still emitting moisture, right?
– John T.
A.  Yes, it’s still emitting moisture, and although you could place it on the bottom, it’s more beneficial to have the moist air flowing downward, which also distributes the humidity more evenly. If you were to place it on the bottom, you’d have to position it against one of the four walls, Not only will a good portion of the humidity be isolated to that particular spot, but the humidifier will also take up some valuable cigar storage space.

Another, and perhaps better solution, would be to nix the Velcro mount and replace it with a magnet mount. It’s also much easier to remove when it’s time to recharge.
