So i found this beautiful humidor in a goodwill for 29 bucks. wiped the inside down with distilled water, filled the sponges with new solution, there is 5 of them top and bottom. cant get the humidity up beyond 40, thought it was the hydrometer, still about the same. thought it might be a leak around the glass, sealed around the glass top and bottom. came up a little bit, days later, put in a boveda pack, few days after that.. same.. no idea what is up with this thing.
