Humidor humidity

Does a humidor with just a few cigars have a harder time staying at 70% RH than one with more cigars. I just got mine and the RH is around 78 to 80% I let it sit for three days and it never did get down to 70% with only 5 cigars. Do they work better with more cigars?

usually.....but in your situation Do you have an analog hygro?
that in itself could be way off.....

in anycase get humidor beads or somthing to take the RH down

you might also want to invest in a Digital Hygro too

Yes, having more cigars will tend to stabilize the humidity. I still think your RH is too high (IMO), though. Check your other thread.
