Put up a clothesline and hang the buds up with clothes pins in the dark till dry.
Or cut buds in golf ball size and place in paper shopping bags opening daily to
check for mold and to alow new air in. Close and fold over the top clip with
clothespins.it takes Between 3 and 7 days to be dry depending on rh then jar and burp as normal ether way works. Lol

My buddy is coming over at 12:00 so we can continue our trim jail sentence. Yeah I think I will leave the sugar leaf's on then and only worry about the fans so we can get through this today, we are supposed to get more rain tomorrow so we cant harvest in the rain. The plants have been in the dark for 2 days now so I really got to get it done today.

I should have led with this but THANK You for all the suggestions and as many of you have said I am sure we were trying to trim the buds closer then we need to so today I will be focusing more on just the fan leaf's

PC, why aren't you drying in your tent? Please do not dry in your garage if conditions are not good. You spent all this time and effort to this point and this is probably the most important step.

Cheers!:48:
I will be drying in the tent once I harvest the ones that are in the tent now. The tent is the only place I can keep the plants so I cant hang anything in there until the two that are in there come out to get harvested. Kind of catch 22 .

I hope he gets a handle on it today!
I pretty much have to get it done today so I will be focusing mainly on the fan leaf's and any dead tips on the sugar leaf's so it should go much quicker today. If I get all three plants done today I will hang dry in my tent

Rain sucks now PC. If you have to hang them in the garage put a fan on them. Rh over 65% is fan time for me in my shed when I have to go there for the shortest times possible. Edit: A short stay won't bother them.

Good deal PC! Let us know if you need tips on hang dry.

I could defiantly use some tips. I have no ide what the temp and RH should be, Not that I have much control over it , even in the tent. Our house stays 69 or 70 degrease and the RH stays in the 30 to 40% range in the tent

I don't have a dehumidifier but it satys in the 30 to 40% range in the tent with the humidifier running outside of the tent. What should the temps be, Dam I wish I had another fridge and a place to put it

just get the temps as low as you can 40s is best but low 50s are good and those r/h are good its going to be better than the garage good luck buddy the first few days are crucial. :)

It's been a while since I hang dried but pretty sure rh was higher than others are suggesting, in the 50-60 range with temps around 60-65. Exhaust fan on but other fans off as that will dry them too quick. Can you put huey in tent? 30-40 is going to dry quick which we really don't want. @neikodog goes like 10 days but I've never gone more than 5 days.

If you have bovedas, the early dry isn't that important. On the string, the outside will dry faster, so once the moisture goes out of the sugar leaves, you can jar them up and the moist stems will circulate into the sugar leaves and dry everything uniformly.

At least, that's been my experience. I've dried in the winter at desert humidity, and once the sugars go crumbly and the stems kink but don't snap, I jar 'em up and within a few days the terps are fabulous. That first dry can be as quick as 3 days, and within a week of monitoring and burping, the jars are stable.

:Namaste:

I have a few jars and Bovida packs, 58% and 62% so if the dry a little too quick and can use the Bovida packs to bring the moister back up. I also plan to use turkey baking bags for curing
