    Would someone mind telling me if this looks like mold or bloom? The stuff wiped off and looked like the original wrapper. It was rather sticky feeling too. Thanks.

    Unfortunately, I have been away from my Tupidor since January 20th. The tupidor has not been opened since then. Has it been too long already or should I try to get someone to open it. I will not be home until May. I have about 50 sticks in there and they are fairly expensive. Thanks

    Some people assume it's bloom when it's white... But some of these spots are raised slightly off the wrapper, like bumps. I can scratch them off with my fingernail. They only occur where the cigar was covered in a cedar sleeve.

    Hello all, I have been smoking for about a year now. Finally decided to get a humidor about a week ago from a cigar website. It came and I seasoned it a few days ago. After calibrating a digital hygrometer that I bought for it I stuck the cigars that came with the humidor (24 in total) in to see...

    So about a month or so ago I was messing around in my humi checking out sticks and I thought it would be a good time to take a good look at the green oasis foam and the CO 2. Much to my dismay I found a couple spots of white mold. I immediately threw the foam away, cleaned the unit with...

    I recently (within 2 months) bought myself some SG Brown no.4 rope tobacco, it smelled great, cut some off to chew. Then later in the night I noticed a white powdery looking substance on the outside leaf of my rope. It was more significant at the one end, but I could see it here and there along...

    I recently had a minor outbreak in my coolidor (coolerdor?). I'd appreciate if someone would tell me whether the following is correct. Mainly, I don't know how easily mold transfers from item to item or place to place. I have a humidor (65%) and a coolidor (70%). One of three boxes of cigars in...

    Went to a new cigar shop today and walked into the humidor and saw a ton of Padron's that looked like this as well as a few others. I took them out to him and said "I think you might have mold", he replied "No that is plume". He said the mold would smell. In his defense it was white, and wiped...

    So I got out of work early today so decided to stop by the local "Tinder Box" shop. I haven't been there before since it's downtown and I live in the suburbs, but I work in the city so it was pretty close. Well I wander into the nice little walk in humidor and check out the stock. Nice...

    I'm having a debate with the vender as to the cause of the white stuff here. I say looks like mold, they say "plume". Anybody able to positively ID this stuff?
