Just an FYI - a little epiphany I had while checking the humidity of some curing flowers. I put the hygrometer in the C-Vault container and sealed it up, checked it about an hour later and it was a perfect 62%!
Then I noticed I still had the packs in the lid (duh). Remove them before checking
I removed the packs, sealed it back up and after an hour it read 68%.
The moral of the story is that (A) the packs work like a champ, and (B) if you want to accurately check the humidity of your flowers remove the pack.
I read something about curing and that is like this… You need to end you curing process and after that you can put boveda pack whit your stuff because this way you will have a good quality mj. Seems the boveda pack messing a little bit the weed.
Or something like that… I will search that article.
If you feel them, there is liquid in the pack. When the liquid is gone, they are done. Sealed up and not doing anything they should store a long time.
Edited to add: I’m new to growing, but I have used these for quite a while with great results. (No I don’t work for them) I got some flowers from my “guy” for a large discount because he had left it in his car in the heat and it dried out some. I put it in a jar with a Boveda pack, and in a week the stuff recovered. So for about $0.34 I saved a bundle.
No @M4ur they do not last forever they will dry up I have reconditioned mine one or two times when the started to dry but you can only do that a few times
Also I only use them for long term storage myself
I don’t actually cure with them
You take a damp paper towel and place in. Jar with lid the place the bovidea pack (s) in until they moist agian
You will know it time to do this when the packs get hard spots in them it means they have dried out @M4ur
As far as “recharging”, the things are cheap. I haven’t had one “dry out” yet except for one that I had in their “travel” container which does not seal as well as the ones with the clips. More evidence of their efficacy.
That is true @dbrn32
You can’t leave it over night to recharge only a hour or two at most other wise it will become saturated with moisture and will not except any more
Good point bro thanks
I have had them dry up in my jars @Whodat66
And yes the do work as desisigned as long as bud is close to proper moisture level to start with and the reason you never had one dry out is because with out you pack in the humidity went up telling me the bud was wet
So yes you will not dry out packs that way👍
I put my bud in jars around 55-60 % and don’t actually need the packs I have them again fir long term storage only
If it work for you than rock and roll with it brother
