do you separate cc and nc?

I hopefully will be getting some Ryj churchills soon. My question is do you separate your cc and nc sticks in your humidor?

Don't ever think the reason I am peaceful is because I forgot how to be violent.

I'm quite sure that guys with more experience then me will chime in but I think many of the members here make sure to freeze their CC prior to any comingling with other cigars. I've also learned here that CC can prefer lower RH than NC.

Aside from that, there are no issues storing both together.

Right now I have my Ryj nc separated from my other brands. Do you separate by divider if you store cc with nc? Btw my humidity was fine, just had humidor open for a bit.

In my cabinet the rh is lower in the bottom. So CCs go on the bottom, NCs on top

This winter I switched to a giant ziplock bin. I tossed everything in there in a fit of rage over my cabinet being a sieve in the winter. Couple crunchy Boveda, couple 65 Boveda and it keeps everything around 63. Which is fine (for me) for both of em.

I keep them in separate tuppers at different rh levels. CC's @ 62% and NC's @ 65%. It's really just a matter of personal preference I base on average ambient humidity where I'm at. The differing rh levels work most of the time excluding those 90% ambient humidity days. At that point I find myself having more issues with swelling regardless of my storage preference.

I keep them together. CCs up top, it seems to be a % or two lower up there. (Just looked 61% up 63% on the bottom.)
They all speak Spanish so there's no problems.....

CCs and NCs don't know the difference when it comes to storage except for RH and Temps.... and even then it's marginal as I keep everything at 65% RH.... 70 degrees Temp. Some of us have more sophisticated tastes and can distinguish between 61 RH and 64 %. It's like a butcher shop with 20 different cuts of beef... as long as some cuts aren't marinated with strong ingredients mixed cigars from Cuba or NC won't have an adverse effect on each other.

I got them seperate but that's only because I didn't have room when I went to the darkside all my cc are in coolers and nc are in wooden humidors

More cigars = less stress
