A lot of ppl will be experiencing high humidity atm.

 

Hang plants whole- takes longer but protects you from loads of fuck ups from a fluctuating environment. Don’t trim it till it’s dry, the leaves protect the smell of the bud (very important if humidity is low).

 

U can use a dehumidifier as well- be careful it doesn’t jack up ur temps tho. They produce a fair bit of heat in a small space

I always suffer from high humidity which means it can take a long time for my buds to dry.

 

Thats not a bad thing. Too long and mold can set in if the buds don’t dry quickly enough. 

 

Not everybody will agree, but this is what I do to dry in very humid conditions.

 

Use a dry net.

 

I wet trim all the buds. I separate the main colas into smaller buds to aid drying.

 

It usually takes 5 days with temps between 18 & 21 degrees with humidity between 65 & 75.

 

Once stems snap, I put into mason jars for 24 hours with the lid offs.

 

Then I put a humidity meter inside the jar and close the lids. 

 

Depending on humidity levels within the jar, I leave the lids off for extra drying or leave them sealed to start the cure. 

 

I have a small fan to keep the air moving.

 

I’m sure hanging the whole plant is a better method. With high humidity, dry nets work a treat.

it will dry quicker if you trim all the leaves and place a fan so it blows across the plant to stop fungal growth

Okay! Drying conditions are 24C with 50% humidity using a humidifier to bring it up to about 60% for a slow dry.

That should be perfect mate, provided the air flow’s good too. The cure starts now. Good luck man. @iGrow420710

Just make sure the air is moving. Make sure the plant has air being blown on it every now and then. The last thing you want is a pocket of warm, moist, still air in the middle of your plant.

 

Also, if any walls are cooler than the room, they will get damp, especially if you have a plant hung in front of them. Make sure any plants near any walls cooler than your room have a gap and some airflow.
