    drying question

    Hello,

    I just chopped up my first two plants, both auto flower. One Diesel and one Amnesia Haze. My question is ... it seems me entire house is around 45% humidity. I know it should be around 70% or so to dry enough to put in jars to cure. Can I leave it at 45% and just check it often for when the small stems are close to being able to be snapped or should i add a humidifier? I'm a bit nervous about the idea of a humidifier as i I don't want to go find in the morning that I am now at 100% and dripping! ... thoughts? Excited about my first grow!

    I put em in brown paper bags , and do 1 day of cure per 10% humidity. So 45% rh would be 4&1/2 days , and so on. That always gets me close .

    I use hygrometers in the jars and burp daily to dial in 62% , which is ideal.

      hi, thanks! where you say "cure" I am thinking that means "dry"? as in one day of drying in paper bags per 10% of humidity .... then cure in jars with burping to 65%...

      That's correct. Curing is as crucial to harvesting good chronic nuggets as is nutes , lights,or genetics. In my opinion. Hope yours turn out great.

    Hey doc, 45% humidity isn't the worst thing that could happen; I wouldn't add a humidifier myself. My humidity stays around 45-50% while I'm drying. You will find that your smaller buds will be ready to jar first.

      Thanks ... I think I will just need to monitor and trim the buds off of the stems when they get a little dry and then burp according to the hygrometer....

      I like your quote ..... i also like ... "If not now ... when!" .... be well and thanks .... I'm so excited about my fist grow, I'm learning more each day.

      drfeelgood When you first jar the buds, hopefully they're around 65% RH and you should burp daily for the first couple of weeks to give them fresh air. Then you can slow down on the burping. During that first week or two, I check on the jarred buds a few times daily; sometimes I have to take some out overnight or for a few hours to dry a little bit more. If you want, I'll send you all my notes.
