All cigar humidors need to be seasoned before use to raise the moisture level in the wood so it’ll be in equilibrium with your cigars, otherwise the wood will rob moisture from your cigars if it’s too dry. If you live in a dry climate it’s not unusual to need to re-season once a year, usually during the dry winter months.
Like all Boveda products, our seasoning packs are easy to use and take the guesswork out of seasoning your new humidor or re-seasoning your humidor in the winter. Boveda seasoning packets provide a complete and even equilibration of moisture without causing mold or warping which can happen when following more antiquated seasoning methods.
Nothing could be easier. Simply place one 84% Boveda seasoning pack and your Ammodor digital hygrometer inside your Ammodor humidor (without cigars) and wait 7-14 days. Then replace the seasoning Boveda seasoning pack (84% RH) with regular Boveda pack of your choice (62%-75% RH – we recommend 69% RH packs for Ammodors) OR add your Ammodor humidifier. Wait a day or two and check the humidity using your hygrometer. Once it is a steady ~ 70% you can add your cigars to the humidor.
Dimensions are 5.2″ x 3.5″. Shelf Life unopened is 2 years. For humidor seasoning ONLY.
