Think back. What have you changed, what environmental changes have happened?


Did you change nutes, locations, water supply, what?

You have to give them longer than that. The last harvest I had needed to be burped for like 3 weeks before it didn't smell like hay and it took 5 weeks for the smell to come back fully. It is 7 weeks now and its the best weed Ive grown in along time, but I was worried. I always get worried during cure. If you've done it properly it will be fine after some time. I would look at moisture levels and possibly rehydrate. I wouldn't do it if its not absolutely necessary If the moisture level is good, keep burping them. What is your humidity in your room you are curing in?

You said you've grown for years, and everything was peachy. Now, the last two grows are coming out like hay.

Something has changed. You shouldn't have to be trying different drying techs if the one you were using worked fine before. You wouldn't have the same issue with all of the strains, if everything was still the same.

Do you use tap water? Has something happened in your area and the tap water has changed? Are you using old nutes? Did you pick up fresh nutes and one of the ingredients lists has changed since the last time?

That's my opinion too.

Ideally you want to dry at about 70f and 50%RH in the dark with a little air circulation usually for 7 to 10 days. This will depend on bud structure and conditions though. Then start the burping and curing process.

Personally I don't sell so could care less about weight so I prefer to over-dry slightly and rehydrate with Bovedas if necessary. Better that than decomposition starting. On a side note I find the 62% Bovedas make the perfect texture for joints but a little too damp for pipes. I'm going to get some 58% and try those.

Agreed it is too wet before jarring.

Also it would be easier to read if you used some hint of Grammer and spell check.

Too much airflow, or too high temperature will usually be the one to fuck it up.. if the fan is running constant I would consider turning it off for at least a few 2 hour breaks. It may slow the process by a few days but could help.
Tbh I used to just hang dry in a back bedroom with no fans and didn’t have problems, took usually 7-10 days before jarring.... so if all else fails, try that.
Good luck

Edit: uk climate also
