I've been looking around on this site on how to re-moisten whole leaf
for hand rolling a cigar , there seems to be a number of different methods ,
its all new to me , so I thought I'd just start a new thread , so it would be
easier for me to understand and ask questions , I was recently gifted some
cured and dried leaf for cigar ( Six different strains ) it is crispy dry so I am
going to store it in six separate cardboard boxes , I made my own wood
mold and plan to roll only three at a time , I also read that the filler , binder
and wrapper all need to be at different levels of moisture to make a good
cigar ?

Put them in the bottom of a large trash bag. Soak a wash cloth, then wring the water out so it is wet but not dripping. Put it in the trash bag and tie it up in the top with the bag tie so it hangs down inside. The leaves will absorb humidity from the wet cloth in a day or so. Hang it out in the sun and it works even faster. :)

Not many replies to this question, and it is periodically a very real circumstance for most of us...

I would do almost exactly as Sky has advised !
...except that my direct sun is brutal, certain times of the year, so I would opt for a shady spot.
