relative humidity is the ratio of humidity in the air to the humidity the air will hold (at a given temperature)...it has nothing to do with the humidity of cedar(which may be 10%)or what % of the air is actually water.

absolute humidity is the % of a substance that is water

i believe this is the case...at 70 farenhiet and 70%relative humidity the absolute humidity of tobbacco is about 14%.(i read this years ago and cant be certain but this is close).

therefore your 10% cedar is just about right(a bit dry) which is why we season a new humi.
