Drying a little too quick!?
Posted 18 April 2012 - 11:56 AM
They have been in since sat and already the stuff on the floor feels dry, should I jar this and leave what's hanging for longer? Thing is the big'uns hanging feel dry on the outside but still have plenty of moisture on the inside, am I best to try and slow the fan down?
Last thing I want is a load of bone dry shite that turns to dust and carries no weight!!

The best way to tell if your bud is actually dry on the inside is to check the stems. This is where the moisture is ultimatly stored, so when they are dry you can be sure the flower is as well. When dry enough to jar the stems should snap if they are thin and twiggy or splinter if they are thicker. If they are green and bendy then your bud is not dry enough to jar.
When they are dry enough they will still have a slight amount of moisture left, this won't be enough to affect the storage but will over time spread the remaining moisture evenly over the bud making for a better smoke. You can burp your jars to slowly dry out the bud some more - a matter of taste. The best way to do this is wait until the buds feel a little softer, open the jar for 10 mins and repeat until you have got the cure you prefer.
I have never had bud dry properly in anything less than 2 weeks and often have to dry in relativly hot dry conditions. Don't rush this part of your grow unless you have to... its the easiest part of gardening - all you have to do is nothing !
