Lower the humidity or increase the heat.

this ^...

but your space doesn't need to be any bigger than what you are drying, living in the tropics i can place a cardboard box on an oil heater set on low in an open room and dry several ounces at a time over a several days...

i never got a good/satisfying result force drying in a short period of time....like using an oven...

an air conditioned room works very well...but alas no aircon for me....

good luck...

Okay! Drying conditions are 24C with 50% humidity using a humidifier to bring it up to about 60% for a slow dry.*

Temps are too high. You should be around 20C for terpene preservation. At 60% RH you won't reach the snap stage. You'll need to jar some up in 2 weeks and see if it stays at 55-60% RH after 12hrs or if it rises.

I would invest in a window a/c unit for a small room for your next harvest. It will both lower temps and dry the room it's in a bit more. I'm hoping things work out for you.

Hello igrow,

You have a low humidity drying condition.

You want to increase the humidity so that your product will dry more slowly.

Do I understand your question correctly?

Me too have high humidity, it has 75% humidity and 20 C there is a risk that it will dry out badly,or mold, but if I can dry it at 75 in 20 days the product it will be bad?? all


However I was told a trick to dry, open the buds creating a small space between the buds and the stem ..
