Rookie here and would appreciate some advice on where to dry in my low humidity NE winter home. My first grow was last summer where I tried trying in decent humidity conditions in two rooms. I used a WeDryer for smell and over dried in both locations.
I also dried some in a piezoelectric wine fridge which went much better as I could control temperature (but not humidity) but I still think I over dried there or screwed up the cure. My recollection was rh got a bit low after week two here.
Anyway, I have a small auto which should be ready next week and would appreciate any advice this time around. Here are my options :
I have small under stairs basement closet that is dark, out of the way and could keep temps at 70 or below. This seems ideal but I would need a humidifier. Either a larger basement evaporative air type model in the main room and hope humidity gets into the closet or maybe stick a Levoit type ultrasonic in the small closet with a fan and use distilled water. Smell might be an issue here just hanging in the closet , but I could also try the WeDryer in this closet since it has a filter and maybe try to use a smart plug to cycle the fan on and off to avoid my past over drying.
try hanging the WeDryer in an unused upstairs bathroom, with an ultrasonic humidifier, and I could open the window a crack to get temps down to the 60s. Wifey would not be too happy with this option in general but I could maybe work that out lol. Also benefit that if humidity gets really low I could turn the shower in for a few minutes if really needed
try the wine fridge again ala lotus cure. Last time I did not use paper bags and hung buds directly from the racks. Maybe this time try a wet trim here and use paper bags for a slow two three week dry. Issue here is I have no way to control humidity in this set up. Don’t think a room humidifier will make any difference in a closed fridge ?
So any thoughts or comments appreciated….I could just experiment as if all goes well on this small auto, I hopefully have another plant ready next month if all goes well.
So thanks in advance for any thoughts or advice. I definitely fell into the got lucky on the grow, but need help on the back end …
