humidity and hygrometer issue

Checked the humidor tonight: gel beads still gorged with water, water pillow still plump, hygrometer reading at 48 percent. Any ideas what's going on there? Thanks.

Run a salt calibration on the hygrometer.

Guess I need to. Added more water, but I can't tell whether the crackle is from celloor whether my tobacco is getting dry, and I didn't want to take everything out.

It's always handy to have a spare hygrometer kicking around somewhere.

Might sound paranoid, but I keep two hygrometers in my humidors. As others have said, try a recalibration.

Just curious, what kind of hygrometer is in question?
