I have a couple plants hanging since almost exactly 3 weeks ago…
Hanging inside a tent, exhaust running full time, 2 smaller fans inside for air movement.
Humidity at flower hanging level stays around 80%RH.
Right on the lower air intakes it’s about 70%RH.
Temps range from 65 to 75°F
I have already smoked a few flowers from there, but feels not dry enough.
I have no dehumidifier yet, working on getting one soon…
So the question is:
Jar it all with some Boveda packs? (58 or 62 RH)?
Leave it hanging until eventually the weather gets dryer for a couple of days and jar it at minimum RH?
Appreciate any tips or ideas,
Thanks in advance

3 weeks WHAT!?!?!?!?!? I say jar it or grove bag it an burp when needed til it’s where it needs to be

Do you have (or can you get) a wood moisture meter? Something like this:
If so, shoot for 11-12% moisture, and you will jar/bag them at around 62% rH,

So far, my plan is getting some 58% boveda packs and jar them this weekend…
Tomorrow it’s 3 weeks exactly since they got chopped and hanged…
Humidity is just naturally crazy high around my house

I do not have access to that, but always wondered if there was a tool to measure that, thanks for the info
I explained my problems trying to dry in high humidity in this thread.
Just checking or opening them up to release some moisture? That RH is way too high to seal up the bags and leave it like that.
Jump to page 974 and start there.

Awesome man, will do some reading on your thread, thanks
Get a decent dehumidifier you’re running a huge risk of getting mold if you bag it that wet

@Newt on the moisture meter, do you set it for soft wood when you take the readings? Thank you in advance

I use mine on the default setting. (And that is soft wood)
But I don’t think it really matters much for this application. I just make sure I use the same setting and the same target result every time.

Thank you again. Have a great day
One more question while your around plz sir
Seems I keep reading more and more people have moved from probing the bud to probing the stem.
What’s your thoughts?

I don’t smoke the stems. So I don’t measure them. Find what works for you, and do that.
