Brief High Humidity Episode In Late Flower

I have been holding off on harvesting, waiting for more amber trichomes. Last night I watered, turned out the lights and went to bed. Woke up to the dehumidifier full and shut off, RH at near 70%. To make matters worse, lower temperatures kept my aC from coming on. Can’t say for sure how long this went on, my guess is a few hours, maybe 5 hrs tops. After fixing the situation buds felt dry and buds opened up to save themselves I’m guessing.

After a few hours at present, the buds oils are starting to return and I think all will be ok, my question is should I just harvest now or let it finish? Worried about potential problems from the episode? Anyone here experienced this?

Proceed as you would have without the incident. If it happens every day then try increasing airflow in the grow space.

A brief spike in Rh should not have any lasting effect especially at this late date.

Thank you Guys, as you can imagine in my mind it was an emergency lol. As I typed out “has anyone experienced this?” I was thinking I’ sure most have lol. Getting this close to harvest and all that work and worry can cause irrational decisions, that’s why I come here lol. Appreciate it!

Long as you have plenty of airflow you should be good. I had that issue at night during lights off I didn’t catch it at first and humidity would jump from 45 up to 65% or so. It went on for almost the last 2 weeks of flower there wasn’t much I could do. I kept airflow good and I was fine.

Here’s a 24 hr. shot of mine. I just keep lots of air moving, and I have no issues.
