    SHOW ME YOUR BOX!

    Any ways
    almost that time again in a few weeks and i need to get my drying box together

    I normally just use a wire rack shelving thats 2x5x6 and i cover it with panda to contain some smell but mostly make it light tight and so it drys slower i hang via nubs directly to the shelf wires

    I section off the bottom rack and stick my dehumidifier in there set at 65-70%

    It doesnt blow on them directly but circulates the air for me without checking it .

    I like to take a week to 14 days depending
    Before i go to jars for the cure.


    Just wondering how you guys do it

    More interested in bigger drying boxes as little ones are cool but i need to fit at least a few units worth :)

    Anyways blow it up guys

    8' by 24" by 8' closet, inkbird at 50% humidity, one clip fan, one humidifier, don't have spare dehumidifier available just now but humidity is in check for now, will add one in warm drier weather
    (White Widow 3 days ago, add hanging basket and 4 lower lines if need room)

    I control the humidity n temp of the room vs just keeping the box in check.
    It works really good.
    For my space I’d rather two 2x4 tents

    Yea i like the way i do it but the last crop straight FILLED the rack to the gills lol
    I guess i could buy another rack and rig them together as one.

    I like your vertical racks those will go in the memory banks :)

    Was an easy setup , and I’m very happy
    I take a rack into the flowering room , fill it up, n repeat. Works good.

    That’s what I did,
    Was 150$ you don’t need anything special for drying , this is where you can get away with a cheap Chinese one , n not worry .


    Before it was metal coat hangers.
    Lots n lots of hangers

    Thanks had to step it up had unbelievable low humidity, 14% for days, was a nightmare drying some weed at the turn of this year so decided I need control, have spare 4 by 4' tent but for now this ok because I don't really have room for a third tent in here
    -good luck:leaf:

    We use a closet we keep empty just for this in a spare bedroom, I know most people can't get away with this but I am lazy and it works wonderfully for us. Nothing fancy, I hang branches on hangers and have a little hanging kitchen basket (3 tier) for single nubs. No fan no dehumidifier. 10 - 14 days when I can just start to break a semi think stem I cut off all buds and move into open lidded containers in a small cabinet for another day to 3 then burped in glass for a few days. I have been told I have delicious smelling and tasting girls :D.

    I use our spare bathroom- the vent fan provides just enough air movement

    I upped my humidity to 58% because these are smaller buds from the last cutting and they dry too fast, in 48 hours will put some in jar with hygrometer to test and adjust from there daily

    I use the closet inside my spare bedroom flower room. I hang a dark synthetic material curtain over the open 2’x3’ closet and hang branches from 2 levels of hemp string lines hung in a row left to right.

    The exhaust from the growroom gently pulls at the curtain and continually vents the closet.

    It does have a bit of variance in temp day to night but it takes about 7 days on average to dry enough for jars.

    Noticed a huge difference between 55% and 58% RH!

    At 55% the big tops were ready to jar in about 5 days

    But at 58% the smaller buds are not ready even after 9 days!? ..their RH in the jar was 66% this am, I jar and start curing below 65

    Was not expecting this big of a difference with only 3% RH added !?

    I cut them from the branches and put them in a hanging basket at 55%rh, will reassess in 24 hours, expect them to be in the proper zone by then
