I dry in a fucking Chicken coop (no chickens).



At harvest time the RH is between 70 & 90. It's a crap shoot, but basically it dries slowly. 3 weeks sometimes, and I have to time it right to bring it in. It could be ready to bin in another room to cure, but if I miss it and it rains, it has wait. Mofo. But it's as smooth as a menthol cigarette because I have to cure a long time.

I just got a big old window banger that will get my flower room to 62 with lights out.

If your flowers are finishing in 90 degree temps it's prolly not going to matter much but the coolest place in your house will be best and use an exhaust fan to dehumidify and a humidifier to keep as close to 55-60%.


Amazon has this controller for forty bucks that will control both that I use.
Inkbird AC 110V Digital Pre-Wired Outlet Dual Stage Humidity Controller IHC-200 (IHC-200)

A closet, tent or box can be rigged to work well depending on how much you have to dry.

Keeping your flowers cold when they finish and while they dry and cure really produces next level flavor.

I first heard about this when Berner interviewed Jungle boys in this video. It's 11 minutes in. They go to 60 degrees but you can't usually get rooms that cold without special equipment. Normal dehumidifier won't work at temps that low.

Now that is really interesting. I have a little calculator on my grow spreadsheets. I input wet weight and used 20% (what past grows yielded dry

Keep you a oscillating fan going close to the ground, don't let it blow directly on your plants. Just something to kinda circulate the air some
