Congratulations on your harvest, well done indeed.
Hi @eggzin and thanks for the info, it’s much appreciated.Hi GG,
Regarding timer/humidifier, I use a cool mist humidifier controlled by an InkBird humidity sensor. The sensor calls for humidity and energizes the humidifier. It would certainly work with a plug timer.
The cool mist humidifier was inexpensive and I bought it at Walmart. I'm sure you can find something similar on your side of the pond
The inexpensive ones @eggzin is referring to usually just have a dial on them to turn them on and off.Hi @eggzin and thanks for the info, it’s much appreciated.
Ive heard of these inkbirds but never used one. I wouldn’t need a plug timer if I had one of those. I may have to get me one of those!
Thanks for the humidifier tip too. I guess I need to find one that is always on when it receives power. The one i have now needs me to push a button every time it comes on, so probably wouldn’t even work with an inkbird. Just not sure what to search for - “always on” isn’t getting me very far
I'm sorry my memory is bad have you had the ac on the entire drying period.
Drying Day #5Hey all.
The RH consistently dropping. It started out here this morning:
Temp : 24c/75.2ft
RH : 50%
It's now sat at:
Temp : 23c/73.4f
RH : 46%
I'm not turning the humidifier on anymore. The buds I washed are the driest (which makes sense as they are off the plant with the smallest buds). The buds are dry but the stems still bending. I expect they'll be ready by morning.
The others could still use at least another day, which I'm happy about. The majority will make it to Day 6
No, the drying rack has been in a sealed tent the entire time (bar the first day). I added a humidifier on day 3 to slow it down a little, but haven't switched it on at all today.I'm sorry my memory is bad have you had the ac on the entire drying period.
I know the feeling my friend, It's crazy how much weight they lose. Literally between 85-90% of their harvested mass evaporates.I always was heart broken after about 2nd day. They loose most of their moisture those first couple days and shrink
I was thinking i'd keep it open until the buds are around 6 weeks cured, compare photos, density, weight of some chosen buds. Audrey being one of them. That way we can see how the buds change over the curing period. And we can do a final "Taking a look back"Are you carrying on this wonderful journal right through curing also?
Hey @dick23rk hows it going?Hey there GG, looks like I'm a little late to this show but I had to come have a look so I could vote on the journal of the month contest. What a beauty of a setup, and beautiful rewards as well. Your journal is super informative and clean, great pictures and always explaining with great detail. Not to mention your help when others ask questions, very prompt to answer.
Best of luck in the contest my friend, I'll be sure to keep an eye for your next journal so I can come and watch live. I too have a set of dwc buckets going right now for my first time as a test run and if all goes well I will eventually move into a 4 bucket rdwc similar to yours. I've been looking for a way to grow some monsters and this may be it, with a tote of course. Cheers!
Thanks Eggzin. That’s super helpful of you Ill be humidifier shopping this weekend. Papa needs a new humidifierYes GG, Michael Hunt is right.
This is the one I have:
Going well, thanks for asking.Hey @dick23rk hows it going?
Thank you for stopping by, and thank you so much for the kind words, they put a smile on my face it gives me a great sense of joy knowing there is value in this journal for others
Ill be sure to tag you in here when I create my next Journal, I’ll come and check yours out too. If you need anything or have any questions, feel free to @ me
Thanks again my friend
