I live in a temperate rain forest (Southeast Alaska) and am in a constant battle with humidity. A quality dehumidifier is the next investment but for now I’m having to improvise. Does anyone know if “Damp Rid” is safe to use in the tent? What about this device… has anyone used a similar item or know whether it would be worth giving it a try?
Charcoal, cat litter, silica, all will help pull the moisture out of the air. I have a couple cans filled with DE and charcoal in my grow area… DE is silica in a finer form. Damp Rid, is just the above put into a fancy holder.
If you were desperate to stop a mold problem, you could just grind it up freshly picked and decarb it in the oven: Spread thin layer on cookie sheet and preheat to 110 C or 230 F. Put the cookie sheet in there for 110 minutes, then cool it off. Ready to smoke or cook with. Converts all THCA to THC, gets rid of all water, and kills mold.
Might not smoke as well as classical drying and curing, but it saves you from mold.
VERY helpful! Thank you
I think that size would be perfect… at least it’s a place to start. I also wasn’t sure if I should get one that size for in the tent or a large one for the room
I’ve got 2 large buckets of the damprid in the tent and it seems to be working for now but is definitely a temp solution.
My gals are still a few weeks from flowering and I’m already looking forward to the next batch… when some of these kinks are worked out
@GreenThunder southeast Alaska here too… you need something serious for the amount of rain we get. Highly suggest a good quality dehumidifier. I just ordered one from E of bay for $40. It was refurbished, but it’s a $297 item on amazon. There were more available, and I got it shipped to AK for free. Hope this helps.
