Who's paying $100+ for a cigar?! That's absurd!
Oh NO!!! I had a beetle infestation in mine last year and lost about 12 REALLY good sticks. If the impacted cigars were near the seals of the humidors, you'll have to make sure you're getting a good seal all the way around the doors/openings. That sucks man.
Mold. Plume is not fiberous.
That blows! I've done the beetle thing, about 20 years ago. That sucked. Been lucky enough to avoid mold. Add more kitty litter to that humidor!
I think I have it under control at this point. I went through a short period where my hygrometer was off and I was running around 80% RH. Now safely at 67.
I tend to the cabinet very carefully. 890 sticks in there (mostly Cuban).
I thought my 200 was a lot! Holy smokes (literally)! 80%
That’s a lot of blunts.
I've never done well with moderation.
IDK. Dude I was in the Army with.
Someone gave him some white lightning so, he passed out some kinda fancy ass cigars. No recollection what they were. I started guzzling the White Lightning, too
Nice setup! What's it use for temp and humidity regulation?
Plume? Funny, I worked in a cigar store for a while.. We never called it 'plume'. It was always referred to as bloom. Looking around, I see both terms in use. Interesting.
I would actually disagree that plume, or bloom, can look fibrous. Although, I can't say as I've seen it quite as hairy looking as the stuff on the end of your smoke. In researching the term plume/bloom, I came across an article which says mold leaves a stain and cannot be wiped off as easily as plume/bloom. It does describe plume as crystalline in appearance.
I am just hoping that you can save that smoke! LOL
Hahahaha!! Well, that explains it pretty clearly.
Got there before me, but I wholeheartedly agree!
I now have 6 hygrometers carefully positioned throughout the cabinet (synced-up first) to help me ensure ventilation is good. The rest is handled by a Le Veil iCigar system.
I worked at a fitness gym once. Pretty sure no one wants fitness advice from me.
I've heard both terms as well. Plume is what stuck in my head. Must be the one I heard first.
Read this when you get a chance. I suspect that 'bloom' growing on your tubos is actually white mold.
Mold doesn't always stain. That said, I've never seen green or blue mold in my smokes. Though I did watch a guy working at a cigar shop wipe off clumps of green mould, try to convince me it was plume, then toss the stick back in the box.
That is my understanding as well. I have a few hard-to-get-Cubans that have plume. Can't wait to burn 'em down!
Talk about the pot calling the kettle black!
What if I have some pants that are too big and I want to fit in them?
I've worked out a time or two... And have plenty of advice. I AM an Internet expert, in case you hadn't noticed! LOL
I read it... Maybe I've been smoking mold all this time? It probably won't stop me, though.
I've never had it grow inside my humidor, but I find it often on cigars in newly opened boxes of tubos I buy from overseas. A couple of recent boxes of Hoyo Coronations en Tubo, have had it.
I live in the desert and it's hard to grow mold here...
I've seen green and gray mold on cigars as well, but never in my humidor. And, usually in a cigarette or vape stores that happen to sell cigars. Here in the States, these treat cigars very poorly, with red (aromatic) cedar walls in their 'humidor' and run the humidifiers at full blast all the time... Causing condensation to run down the glass doors and windows! Yuck.
