    First time grower and worried about drying

    Hey folks, first time grower and its getting close to harvest here in Michigan (outdoor). When it comes to drying I do not have a climate controlled environment, I will have to use a shed. I thought about covering the inside with plastic and adding a dehumidifier but again no way to control the temperature and in Michigan in October it can go from 75° to freezing in the blink of an eye. Is this going to cause me to have problems? Open to all suggestions. TIA

    Welcome aboard Jbone7678 - considering you only have to use that shed for a bit of a week I would only be worried if your temperature goes below freezing. Line it with plastic if you want - I would try and put a small fan in that shed - don't blow it on the buds but just to move the air.

    Hello! I posted recently re my use of banker boxes as a cheap and convenient way to hang and dry your buds. Check out "Anyone for Growing Trees? Summer 2020". If you have someplace inside the house to stack boxes it might work for you. Maybe still use the lined shed, the boxes might add an extra buffer to the cold? Good luck out there!

      I made some cylinders out of window screen materials and tape. I cut off and trim my buds at harvest and usually lay them out to dry but if the circumstances warrant, I will put them into the cylinders and hang and rotate those. Takes up very little space.

        I've opted away from the hang and dry method recently because of radically fluctuating RH here. I went back to my old school method of laying branches down and drying in an open cardboard box in a dark room. Just jarred up the first plant for cure this morning. I couldn't have asked for better results. I turned them 3 times a day in a room with air movement but not on the branches themselves. Only 4 days and it was ready for cure.
