Need advice, harvest / curing

These 3 autos are ready to harvest. However I’m going on vacation for 7 days starting this Sunday. And I have to take down the tent Saturday. I live in a humid location by ocean.

So if I harvest before I leave, they will be in my drying closet for a week with no humidity control (dehumidifier needs emptying often) with average indoor humidity at 70%

Secondly I could let the soil dry out, leave them in the pots and place in a dark closet and wait to harvest until I return. They would be very dry.

Lastly I guess I could water them before I leave and just put them in my bedroom where they will get natural light. and harvest when I return? This way the would not dry out all the way. I appreciate any suggestions or experiences!



I think I would water them thoroughly, and put them in the tent with no light so they dry out slowly.


Thank you Dexterado, that’s exactly what I did!

By George it worked. Just got back from vacation yesterday - let them sit in tent in dark for 7 days and these plants are super sticky and smell great. Thank you Dexterado!

Glad to hear it. Looks good.

Hang the branches upside down turn off the lights get humidity down to around 50% in the tent and have an oscillating fan on low speed to move air softly. Should be roughly 7-10 days and the Bud should snap cleanly off the branches then time to cure!!!

Thanks Rev. I have harvested, trimmed, dried and cured many times. My question was about going on vacation at the exact time the plants were ready for harvest. @ Dexterado answered my questions and it worked.
