    Recharging Boveda packs.

    What do ya'll think? Any first hand experience?
    Trying a Bruce Banner and an Alaska Thunderfuck this year outdoors in So Cal. ATF is marked with the orange bag in my pics.

    Fox Farms Happy Frog (5 cu ft each), in very sandy soil.
    Using molasses for the mycos
    Silica Blast
    and General Hydroponics Grow/Bloom

    Crushed up chewable Vit C tabs to kill the chloramines. 30 minutes to clean a 5 gallon pail fresh from the hose.

    Thanks, Floopydoop that's useful and I'll try the osmosis method! I've been throwing the used up ones away!
    I grow exclusively in large pots using soil comprised of the compost I make combined with Foxfarm or other quality commercial soils as an amendment. Appropriate nutes as needed. State of the art LED lighting and an evolving system of environmental controls allows me to pamper my plants and let them tell me what they need.
    My goal is epicurean quality rather than high yield.
    I'm learning how to create cannabis tinctures and hashish and I almost always use a vaporizer to spare my aging lungs.
    Despite my avatar name I'm generally amenable and helpful. So, if there's a question I'm qualified to answer, hit me up!



      Haven't watched full video but will watch last 14 minutes later. From memory I've read either on the forum or main site about recharging by wetting a paper towel and placing it and the packets in a sealed jar to let them absorb the moisture to recharge them. As a cheap bastard or being politically correct a frugal person I love finding ways to extend life of or reperposing of an item especially items meant to be disposable like the single use (my ass) syringes I use to measure my oil. Thanks for the tip @Floopydoop.


        Poppa, I don't consider it cheap. I believe in waste not, want not.

          Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do with out.

        I had a few that dried out crispy hard so I put them in a jar above a little water and in 24 hrs I broke them up a little and they were good as new.

          It says on the package is that they don’t recommend re-use because the crystals that form are sharp and the membrane controlling things inside is delicate. They can’t guarantee the correct humidity after first use. I’m not against re-using them, only that you should handle then carefully as the crystals form and possibly put them in an empty jar with a hygrometer first to double check it is still working as expected.
