I believe that reeds really should be at 70 degrees and 50 percent humidity. Just like books.

I like the idea of the Vandoren reed humidor but when I first saw it at NAMM they indicated it wouldn't be out for awhile. My solution was to get a humidistat of eBay and use a plastic zip lock bag. It was just a matter of getting the right amount of reeds in the bag to keep the humidity where I wanted it.

By doing all that I found that once I had a reed prepared the way I like that it played the way I liked longer. I also found that I didn't have as many reeds go from being just right to not right.

The advantage of the plastic bag is that it easily fits in my case or in my sax bag.
