Hell, just keep them in a tub in the shower...100% humidity baby.

Just take 'em out and nuke 'em with a hair drayer when you want to smoke one...

Erm for me - about 65, but for Fidel - anywhere between 10 and 100 depending on how much weight I have on the top of the humi....

I said other. I like my sticks between 65 and 70. Usually about 67%. I do think they age better and 70%, but I like the way they smoke at 65% - so, I split the difference.
