    They should be fine, after re hydrating. They should continue the cure as they did not get too dry, and they were actually still curing. They hit 50% and the cure stops. Re hydration and warmer temps will restart a stalled cure. Time increases though.

    Thanks man, I think I'll just let them sit for a month or so. This is my first time using bovedas to cure, I was hesitant at first. I've got some blue kush (that didn't over dry) curing for about 10 days with the packs, and I can actually see the buds changing. so far so good.

    In building a dry/cure box you need a way to control the temp & humidity and a way to control vented air movement. In mine I used a battery operated digital thermostat to control 2 ceramic lizard heaters (60 watts each) and because I'm in Colorado I need to add humidity, this was simple, I just placed ceramic coffee cups on the lizard heaters. In my 6 foot cabinet I put (2) 1 inch holes at the bottom and (2) 3 inch puter fans in the top that are controlled via a rheostat (pot that controls fan speed). The thermostat flips a 10 amp relay that turns the ceramic heaters on/off

    I run the cab between 80 ~ 84 degrees (varies with changes in ambient room temp) and keep humidity at 60 ~ 65 (never over 70) for 14 days (longer it takes, better the outcome)

    And for those unaware the way to determine whether or not there is a danger of mold is by calculating the dew point ,,,,,,,,,,

    I helped a friend trim some green indoor last week and he dried it at around 70 degrees and 40% humidity. I grow outside in Oregon and harvest is like mid October. I can't use his method because I have too much and it's going to be wet from high humidity even though it is under cover. This curing business is unfortunately not one size fits all.

    Your right, larger grows are hard to deal with lol. We learned real quick that the logistics start when you pull, the growing is easy lol.

    It's very humid here. I dry on the rack for 4-6 days with a dehumidifier going. I trim wet and separate the buds on the mesh rack as well as I can. I have a kief catcher below the racks. I don't like a long cure. I think you lose a lot of the terpenes that way, but that's probably just me. After about a week in the jar it's perfect for my taste.

    I feel somewhat the same but I tend to like it a bit longer then put the jars in the freezer to stop it and when I take out a jar it's fresh. Some people say it's not good to freeze it but I have for years and it stays fresh for a year if sealed in jars. I actually treat it just like jam and boil the jars to create a vacume seal.

    I do the samething. Except I wet trim and hang. I don't lay em down. But I also leave some sugar leaves on that are coated. And I like them to hang on the buds going from bottom to top. For me 2 weeks in a jar in the pitch black after burping. Tastes amazing. I do have some pineapple express v2 that I'm long curing. Gonna do 6 weeks. It has major fruit nose to it.

    trim style is what we know as commercial trim. ideal for retail. nothing wrong with that trim.. .For a Cup entry, or to smoke it yourself, i would totally manicure it way more.. that being said, if dont have to please anyone else and you're happy with it, then that's all that really matters. Looks dank as fuck, btw.. great job!
