Hello RIU! I go by 413MedGrower, and I've had a couple issues with drying/curing process, so I'll start from the beginning. To start my setup is as follows: 1000watt ballast Air Cooled XXL hood 4x4 tent with 6 inch exhaust fan, 6 inch fan for light 3-4 hygrometers through out tent A couple of fans to circulate air within 5 gal diy dwc buckets 1035gph air pump 2 4" air stones per bucket Used Flora Micro, Grow, Bloom, CALiMAGic, Armour SI, Hydroguard for nutrients Lights on Temps were between 75-79 lights off where 63-67 Nutrient solution always between 67-70 Strains:1x Afghan Skunk and 2x Galaxy I'm using tap water with a ppm of about 110 So now with my story. So the first grow went alright, had a few problems but nothing major. I got to harvest day and one of the galaxy didn't fare to well but the others were great. Checked trics, and had approx 10% amber on the 2 good plants and Chopped them. Also I did flush for about 3-4 days. So I wet trimmed them, hung for 3 days till they were crispy and jarred them. They were in 40% rh and about 68-70 Temps. Well they ended up smelling like fresh hay and they never came back. Fine, I will learn from what happens the first time and change a few things next time. So the next grow, everything was the same except this time the strains were a Fruity Chronic Juice and. Green Poison. So this time I had no issues through out the grow. Get to harvest day, checked trichs and I waited till about 25% amber this time(1st change, maybe I pulled to early). Flushed for 5 days. This time I hung the whole plants to dry to get a longer dry time(2nd change, maybe I dried to fast), and ended up taking almost 10 days till they were crispy on the outside. So I trimmed and jarred them. This time they didn't smell like hay when they went in jars. Now I'm about 18 days into the curing process and they smell like fu%king hay again! Now, I've done hours of reading, on not only drying/curing, but the whole growing process.And also did many many hours of studying books and forums before I even started the first time, so I am confident with what I know and how to do alot of stuff. I just don't know why this second time is getting similar results to the first time even with the many changes I did.I just don't know what else to do to to change for the next cycle so this doesn't happen again... I hope to get some answers here, if anyone needs more info just ask. Thanks for looking!
