    Hi James,

    How do you control the humidity inside your pumidor?



    • James says:

      Boveda packs. Previously small amounts of water. I don’t add much these days and it usually maintains itself around 65-68RH.

  2. Tyler says:

    Hi James –

    The cabinet I use to store my tea has a RH of 58-60%. This seems adequate to me, and the temp is pretty stable at 60-62 degrees.

    My question is whether the RH is high enough, or if I should consider small amounts of water or other methods to raise it? Your thoughts?

    • James says:

      Hi Tyler,

      I don’t really have a firm answer. I doubt you’ll grow mold under those parameters, but I also doubt it’ll age much.
