Just came back to my other place and found my tupperidor too
humid (about 78%) with a bit of mold on the foot of a nice cigar,
and I'm not smoking ATM because the kids are here too. And I
brought some Heartfelt tubes with me! (I put them in the
tupperidor dry to bring the RH down.)
In a panic I cut about 1/4" off the foot (with a cigar cutter, of
course) and moved it from the tupperidor to a ziploc bag. No sign
of mold on any of the other cigars or on the new cut foot.
Do I need to "quarantine" it after cutting the foot off?
If I do, is it OK to stick a Heartfelt tube in the ziploc bag
with it, or is there a risk of the tube getting "infected" and
harming other cigars later?
