I hung up and dried my bud on the stem for 7 tota days. I knew that sounded like not enough time but the buds were definitely ready. RH durning drying fluctuated ALOT. Low 30s to low 50s, i couldnt keep it stable no matter what i tried. Anyway, the bud is now dried and smells good and everything. I put it on jars to cure, filled 75% and added an RH meter to each jar. The RH wont go above 50 in the jars. What do i do if my bud is too dry to cure? Should i add a boveda 62 pack to bring it back up? I want to do this right.
Fyi left jar is shake and popcorn buds.
Do you have any fan leaves left? I’ve read that you can add a few to the jar to increase humidity without altering taste or smell
I dont, i dry trimmed it all off and it was also super dry.
How long have the closed jars held a steady humidity?
Are you keeping these jars in the dark?
I have over-dried in the past, as well. To remedy the situation, I soaked a new sponge in distilled water and placed it in a bowl. Bowl then placed in large Tupperware-type container with the buds surrounding the bowl. Cover it up tightly, store in the dark with a RH meter. When RH is about 60-65 %, I move buds back to amber mason jars with the 62% humidity pack. The humidity will rise greatly overnight.
Rh of 46% sealed and in the dark for 24hrs with no change.
Maybe burp your jars, just in case your meters are off.
Maybe the moisture that’s still in the buds hasn’t leveled out yet. I don’t know.
I’m not an expert, but I don’t think 46% (relative?) humidity is too bad. The curing is about allowing chlorophyll to break down, as I understand it. Personally, I think most dispensary cannabis is too damp.
I bought 62% boveda packa. Im gonna allow it to go a day or two more without adding them to see what changes. Burping twice a day right now.
I added a 62% to a sample jar it seems to have brought it back, i just added to rest of my jars today. My stuff dried out also, i added to the sample after 7 days in jar, only my second harvest so not a expert by any means
I’m curious, only if you don’t mind sharing, what region are you in that this happened @NewbieNick ?
East coast, my rh without any humidfiers is like 25-30% inside😒
I added the packs and its working great btw
