I live in the northeast and it’s too humid to dry my flowers in the detached garage. Hard to dry in house because smell drives wife nuts and have to kids at home. I have a big medal cabinet in my basement that I hung the flower in today. 72 degrees 55 humidity. Problem I have to keep the door shut because of kids and smell. Is the lack of air flow going to be an issue ? I have read that there needs to be air circulation. Any work arounds or suggestions?
Get a small fan and set it up in there. Stale air is a breeding ground for mold, and it would be a shame to get thru a grow and have to chunk some during the dry stage. All that hard work…
I’m giving my first go of drying in the NE. It’s been stupid humid. I’m emptying the dehumidifier 3 times a day. Get Dehumidifiers and fans…
I don’t have much of an issue with smell while drying, trimming was the worst but my kids didn’t notice. Get a carbon filter and an exhaust fan.
Your grow will give you, what you put into it
Also, to add, these fans work great for smaller spaces…
I wish we could link up through the forum, in person would be better but I understand the “no personal info” rule as I am still sketched on a federal level (even though they track everything). I try to stay within the law as much as possible lol.
If you have the weather I do and no central air, well, it’s going to be interesting.
I would love to help people build grow rooms.
Me too. Alot of people here, myself included, can be found on instagram. Same name same avatar. From there you can totally set up a personal meeting, or video chat. Its risky for those who live in non recreational states though, I imagine.
Im young but never liked social media, I did myspace back in the day and got in enough trouble hahaha. This forum and one other are the very few I visit. Maybe I’ll have to hop on Instagram but don’t feel the need to. There are quite a few members I would like to connect with
It is really great connecting with the cannabis community!
And that my friend… is how it’s done. Inconspicuous… yet simple. U deserve a gold damn star .
The people try to pass on here… like ‘look we have relaxed… don’t be an ass and flèche the rules…’
Likewise. I think im going to cough up some money and get a dedicated tent, small exhaust and carbon filter just for airflow, and a portable ac to try and get that 60/60 range honed in. Too many plants get chopped then fast forward to the end of week 1 burping, what in the world is this? Zero terps, no traces of any bud smell, and just the feeling of disappointment after a few months of tlc. I wish the cannatrol was either cheaper for how small it is or bigger for how expensive it is.
Yeah, I may have to figure something out. My humidity is on par but temps can range from 70-75 depending on the outdoor temps. The basement doesn’t fluctuate too much but I would really like to be closer to 65-70°f much lower might be tough to accomplish as the wife would smack me over the head for running AC in the basement to maintain 60 lol
Surprise her with the drying tent in the bedroom and say you saw this route most beneficial since youll be able to keep the cold in your sleep space
I may have to go that route honestly hahaha. Not a horrible idea. I tend to keep my bedroom cold, can’t sleep if it’s over 65, winter or summer.
70-75 is actually a lil cold for most cannabis. 80 degrees is a really good canopy temp. Drying cooler is better. Cannabis, for the most part, is a continental climate plant.
If bigger then a 2x2 I recommend a 6 inch inline fan. I uave a 4 inch for my 3x3 and that sucker runs constantly to keep humidity and temp during flower. Even when lights are out.
Do yourself a HUGE favor and get a inline fan with temp/humidity controller.
Like this for example.
MARS HYDRO 6 Inch Inline Duct Fan with Temp Controller, Exhaust Fan for Grow Tents, Hydroponics https://a.co/d/gltThDq
Two reasons for this style fan and controller. #1 is its an ec motor (new, quiet and energy efficient) vs axial motor (old, loud, burns the energy up like a flamethrower in a weed patch) #2 only runs when needed and stops running when within peramiters. Its worth the extra few bucks.
My veg temps are usually 75-80. I’m drying now, that’s why I’m looking for the cooler temps.
Nice looking plant!
Thanks grow bro.
You think the 6 would be necessary on a 4x4 thats stricly a drying tent? I have the ac infinity t8 with the controller you were talking about and really enjoy its capabilities so far
Stricklty for dry? Oh no for sure not, my bad looking back Im not sure why I thought you were talking about getting a tent to grow in.
Cuz your a pothead! Hahaha. I jest… but seriously. Stoner brain
LMAO Hell Purp look what he’s smokin, you’d be stoned too!
