For drying it is best to keep the air around 55% humidity with a dehumidifier and a fan to keep the air circulating. Drier than 50% will dry the flowers out too fast and they will not cure properly. The white and cream colored hair will stay white and cream colored and the flowers just wont look right among other things. On the other hand if your humidity is too high you risk your flowers molding or fermenting while you wait for them to dry. Keeping the air circulating around the flowers at the proper humidity is crucial to a good cure in order to insure they dry at the proper and steady rate. A room filled with freshly cut flowers will quickly become overly humid and inhibit a proper drying atmosphere. Some written works on the subject say 45% to 55% is a good window. However I feel that with a good dehumidifier tighter and more ideal parameters can be easily achieved. Setting a dehumidifier to turn off when the air reaches 50% should keep your air in between 50% to 55% in a 10x10 room. Oscillating fans will keep the humidity through out the room at more even levels.

Great Info! Found it to be extremely helpful. Quick question, while researching other methods, i came across different Numbers being thrown around regarding optimal rH, temps, as well as times. I'm going to run with it though and ill let you know how it goes.

this guy has a great way of explaining things the way i like to do things, much better than i could too lol.
Anyone got insight on boiling water being used before actual harvest?

Reading Trichomes

Hello IC Crew,

First time poster on this massive forum of Knowledge, some of the greatest threads i have read on here, i was wondering if i could get a second opinion on my Harvest time. It is a Indica dominant hybrid 58 days into flower... What do you think, ready to harvest?



If i had too could i wait 5 days?

Thanks for any replies

In colorado it can be very dry. Waiting until the stems snap will often mean the flower is too dry

Getting close, sure not seeing any amber trichomes. You'd think I would as I'm 9 weeks in and I have a C-99 and a couple other indicas.

Personally I think there needs to be a distinction between the 2 types of snapping of the bud stem.
There is the 'clean break' and the 'snaps but still attached by threads'

If your stems snap cleanly off then IMO they are already too dry for curing and you kinda messed up.
You want to wait until they snap with an audible 'crack' but still stay attached and might even might twisting to snap off. This seems the best time to start curing.

Also, never put buds in to cure that still have any green to the stem or if they bend at all without breaking. you're just asking for mould.
