Hydro System Instructions


The Hydro System is a new and innovative humidification process (patent pending) that evenly distributes humidity from edge to edge while eliminating that awkward space taken up by a humidification jar. This system helps you quickly season your humidor and consistently maintain humidity at that magic 65% RH (see note below why 65% is important and unique for our humidors).   

STEP 1: 

Open the Hydro Tray by pulling up on one of the pull tabs located on the lid. Slide finger around to pull other side up. DO NOT force apart. 


Gently tear open the included "Gel Solution" packet from the pre-cut edge and evenly distribute the gel on the bottom of the Hydro Tray.


Remove the foil seal from the "Humidor Solution" and replace the cap. Shake well before using. Pour into Hydro Tray on top of the crystals until they are saturated.


Wait for about 30 minutes and add more solution Hydro Tray. 


Put Hydro Tray lid back on and place inside the bottom of the humidor.


Place the wood tray over the Hydro Tray


Soak the Hydro Stick with humidor solution and fling out the excess moisture. Place on top of the wood tray.


Wait 24 to 48 hours to season. Repeat steps 3-7 until the humidity reaches 65% for a 24hr period. Do not be afraid to use the entire solution bottle, plus add a little distilled water in the first week during seasoning.

The seasoning process could take up to 7 days. Dry cigars will soak up more humidity which may require more solution in the Hydro Tray and on the Hydro Stick. The humidor is designed to hold 65% humidity while half full of cigars. Keeping an empty humidor or overly full humidor will take more effort.

We believe the optimal humidity range for cigar storage is 65% using our front hygrometer. If using an additional internal hygrometer, shoot for about 68%.

Once seasoned, it’s important to rotate your cigars biweekly and periodically refill the Hydro Tray and rewet Hydro Stick.

NOTE: The front hygrometer reads the open air in front of the humidor, this reading is typically about 5% lower than the area directly above the hydro tray. This is why we recommend keeping CE Humidors at 65% instead of 70%.
