Glass Jar Humidor

I have a glass jar humidor that I got with some cigars some time back. I did not leave the cigars in it so I don't know how well it works. I have a large shipment coming and do not have room in my two humidors for them all. I also have some CAO flavours coming and I would like to put them in the jar to keep them away from the others. My question is do I need to put a humidifcation in the jar with them or since the jar is air tight could I get away with out one.

That jar isn't as airtight as you think. In the short term, I'd say no. If you are talking long term, some humidification is probably advisable.
First: So that a cigar, burn even, circularly, it needs that the tobacconist made it professionally well.

Second: That the cigar have the temperature and humidity necessary, and

Third: _________________________________? ......... (The first person that tells it to me, I will send him free, two René's cigars .

How big is this jar? You could just pop a humi-pillow in there. They are like fifty cents and will last several weeks.

Also be aware that the foot of the cigar is prone to cracking when standed on end.

Thank all of you for your help. Heather what is a humi-pillow ? I have some cigar cards Humidification that I got from JR's but it say's 3-5 days. I guess if I wet it each week it may work. The Jar is big enough to hold 25 coronas.

I'd put a drymist tube in it.

I don't like storing cigars on their foot. I'd go and buy a cheap little cooler and if you don't want to buy a drymist tube take a clean sponge and wet it with some distilled water. There are instructions on how to make a cooleridor on a sticky in this forum

I've been storing my cigars standing on end for the last couple of years (at least 3 years) without any problems. If you are moving boxes on a regular basis, there could be damage but if left alone, there should be no worries. It also allows easier box access in a humi.
