Ok so i have 3 different strains BC, Hash plant haze and white jack. The problem i am having is that after i trim i'll have say 6 ounces wet from one plant and then once dried i only have around 2 ounces so on average i'm losing about 65-75% in weight. Is this normal? Any ideas on how i can correct this the room stays about 75 degress Farenheit and around 47% humidity. I can't figure this one out. Any help would be greatly apprieciated. i've tried using gravity and everything else. I am growing in soil.

it's just weird because i moved to a different place and at my old place i only lost around 35% weight so i'm not sure why the only difference is humidity at old place it stayed around 20% here it's around 45%

only lost 35% weight? huh... i wish.

you sure you were calculating correctly? casue... fresh buds in almost every case i have witnessed... loose 70-80% weight.

unless you wasnt drying and curing it properly before? ive always lost around 75% weight and that is normal also 20% humidity isnt good conditions for your plants in any stage of growth or even for drying

yea i'm positive i ended up with just over 6 ounces dried off 3 plants. weighed in just over 9 ounces before i started drying it. it was the only crop i had at my house before i moved everything to a different house.

looking for a place to pose this question about weight loss.
after drying , weight is measured. during glass jar cure time the weight loss continues
measured 355 G and 5 days later 70G different
any reason that the moisture is released to the tune of 2 Oz in this short of time?
Ive always had Gram adjustment in cure , but is there a norm to this?
