Autoflower - SC Humidity, drying, curing

First grow. Autoflower outside (just one plant) Do-si-do from ILGM. “Hopefully” I’ll have flowers and buds at some point. Assuming I do, I am researching drying and curing.

I live in humid South Carolina just a block from the ocean. Winter is extremely mild. Summers hot and humid.

I can’t grow or dry in the house. Only 850 SF. However, I do have a decent size shed.

Question - Do I need a tent in my shed to dry the harvest? With a dehumidifier?

If yes, I may get a tent kit and do indoor next time. SC is not a friendly state for outdoor.


I highly recommend a tent with a good exhaust fan. Drying should be kept about 60 degrees, but I’ve never been able to pull that off, so as low and slow as you can go.

@Dexterado thanks for the reply

Nearly impossible to get 60 degrees until November.

So do I need a cooling method or maybe a dehumidifier in the tent?

I would be looking for some kind of cooling method. I’ve never been able to dry much less than 72. Still takes 5 or 6 days depending on how dense the buds are.
