Like Lowrider said, in the craft section. If I recall (it was several years ago), they were with the floral type stuff. The came in a little 3x5 poly envelope. The unhydrated beads are small, maybe about this size -- O They look like plastic bb's when they are dry, a small bag holds alot of them.

I've been using PVA sponges, which are really high density and stay wet a long time, but I would like to test the power of the waterbeads as a test.

Same thing with hygrometers, they go wherever they go and I get similar reading for all of them.
I have problems finding a place to put humidifying devices (whatever they may be)... several of my cases are custom fit, and the only place I can put anything is maybe under or by the headstock or in the accessory compartment. If your home-made ones work in the accessory compartment, that would be great. Will give it a try.

As I posted above it doesn't seem to matter where they go. I have them in four different spots and hygrometers in different spots. They all read in the low 50's

I put mine under the headstock in all my cases. If you stop and think about it, humidity tends to disperse throughout the area available to it. That is why the moisture evaporates. If it didn't disperse, the humidity would stay withing the small container (i.e. the soap dish) and the sponge/beads would quickly reach saturation and never go dry.

The plastic box with holes is a good idea, but I too struggle with having space in the case for one. My cases are pretty tight fitting around the guitars.

Whereas, the D'addario / Boveda are flexible enough to fit under the headstock along with my De Oro guitar support.
