Had to Harvest due to unwated intruders

Due to intruders I had to harvest my plants , they still had another 2 wks

but I think I’m still safe with what I got my question is how long do you let them dry . and what is best wet or dry trim ? I got a lot of nice fat buds and most if not all look more along then this one .

65F and 55% RH are about perfect. Dry time should be 7 to 10 days and finish dry/cure in Mason jars. 62% Boveda Packs are worth their weight as well. Walmart has the best prices on quart jars.

There is different brands for humidity packs. They also have humidity beads which are better than packs.

Down side the beads cost a lot more but if you take care of them they will last years. Reason I know…I smoke cigars. On our move I made a Coolidor aka a big ice chest with the beads. The beads are worth every single penny.

I wouldn’t use the 70% but you will know what I am talking about.

How do you use them for drying the flower , I mean can I put them in a ice cooler right now I have them in a closet I would need a lot of them for that but for small batches could I put them in a cooler after the first week ?

@RD1 I use my closet to dry. The Coolidor was for our move that was 1100 miles. The beads kept the cigars at the perfect humidity that I prefer.

I’ve never used any humidity packs in my jars. I had one in my Mom’s 1 oz of a strain called Nordle. For me it had a different taste. We have penty of humidity here.

Humidity packs (62%) are used in the jar with dried flower to help maintain proper RH during cure. Cure occurs during the first 1 to 4 weeks and requires daily attention (burping jars) until gasses have vented off. Potency goes up, flavors are developed.

Nice picture that’s just how my plants are drying , do you wet trim or dry trim .

This will be the first time using the packs how much do you use in each jar , and how often do you have to change them . I just placed my order and they will be here in 2 days I hope they come with some type of instructions . but we also have a good amount of humidity here not sure if that’s a good or bad thing .

The Boveda packs work both ways within reason: so they will help bring down the RH in the jar a couple of points. Read up on curing cannabis in the guides.
