its already in the tent and it has dropped to 68 rhCan you move the dehumidifier I to your tent or 4x4 space? Why such a difference assuming the dehumidifier is in the room that your tent is taking air in from. Do you have an open window or something? Make sure your ac sensor isn't touching something or anything like that.
I dried my plants whole last grow, as the previous time I'd cut the colas off and found I'd over dried them, I then made a mess of trying to rehydrate them, but this last grow I dried the 3 plants whole and after 3 - 4 weeks and dry trimming them I had 23oz and they were perfect for jarring.
I like what I have read of the long slow fridge drying but I have no experience with that. However, I will continue to dry the whole plants in future grows. The only difference I'd make is that on the last grow I chopped the plant at the base of the stem, on future grows I'll use a bread knife to cut it out with some roots as well.
Your trichome pics look good. All the best
The problem was they were quite big plants, somewhere around 4 foot across, and growing in containers on the balcony. When it came to pull them up I couldn't get them out or at least I felt if I did I would send dirt flying everywhere. That particular day I also didn't have much time to get it done so I ended up chopping at the base, next time I'll use a bread knife to quickly cut thru the root base.Curious...why will you use a bread knife and cut out at the roots?
