That could be one heck of a nice humidor!
If you need a humidor that size you should probably start gifting those cigars. Your grandchildren in their 80's will be gifting those cigars so they don't have to leave them in the will too. (Or go to jail because they have antique contraband) RFLMAO

Suncuring idea with those ball cages I have
I have 1 or 2 hundred cages lmao
My biggest concern is i seem to have hoppers on my wilted, half cured, and fully cured leaves. Even the bone dry leaves ive found hoppers chewing on. You think they can become addicted?

I had grasshoppers invade my color curing mini greenhouse the other day. They were in there having a hay day! I thought I successfully harvested without any major bug damage and then find them in there eating everything! I've also put yellow leaves out on my shrubs to sun cure and it seems like it pulls out the grasshoppers! They can't resist it. At least in my area.

Made a mistake. Is this reversible.
Mold showed after 12hrs. I caught it when I got home. Seems to be washing off easily with no spots left behind.View attachment 43442
I have lightly misted leaf with 50% water/vinegar and it seemed to make it go away. I didn't notice a taste difference.
That is an odd pattern on yours, mine was mostly along the main stem and spread slightly to the lamina.
Washing cured leaf can wash away nicotine and flavor.

Been really busy this year and I'm not able to update as much. I was able to flue cure everything and minimize any mold. Anything that shows mold gets separated and treated then stored away from the main batch. Only had 3 leaves that had regrowth so far. I don't really have time to babysit my tubs, even rolling the leaves in the tub is tough sometimes. I didn't force age this year.
I did try an experiment though. I left 3 plants in the ground and they are currently frozen stiff. The leaves turned a nice brown but I'm going to wait until the ground is workable in the spring to harvest those 10+ leaves and see how they compare.
As soon as I get the leaves graded I'll start working them accordingly. Might be next fall though‍.
The glass door fridge is far more headache than I anticipated. It's very difficult to maintain constant temp.(due to the sun heating the chamber also.) I'm sure I could use the sun- need a temp controller on a vent. And it requires a VERY large crop to utilize effectively. It will not air cure. It needs higher air flow for that.
