Cigar Q&A: Humidifying Empty Humidors

Should I Continue to Humidify My Empty Humidors?

Q. I have one humidor for each of my favorite cigars, about five. I’m not able to restock right now  – but I need to know if my humidors will be OK sitting empty as long as I keep the humidity constant, or will I need to recharge them?
– T. Turner

A. If your humidors are well-seasoned, they should hold-up until you add more cigars, but keep a close eye on them. If you notice the RH starting to drop dramatically, simply recharge the humidifier as you would under “normal” circumstances.
