    Every single harvest i fuck up the dry/cure, but I'm getting better. Got a few jars of multiple strains that don't smell anything close to how they did before harvest. Will daily burping and time fix it? Has that dying chlorophyll hay smell, although it seems to be alot less strong then at first.

    Get some Boveda 62% humidity packs. They work both ways, meaning that if your bud has too much moisture,they absorb some of it, and if your buds have too little, they add some.

    So just throw them in the jar with a Boveda pack and thats it?

    You need to dry them first, but then once you jar them, you don't have to worry about them being too moist or too dry (to an extent...). If you put a pack in with freshly cut buds, it will most likely not work. That's way too much moisture you need to remove. You don't want to let your freshly harvested buds completely dry out tho. Just enough for the outsides to be a bit crunchy. Once they get to that point, jar them overnight (without a humidity pack) and see how they feel in the morning. If they feel fresh again, leave the jar open for a few hours, and then repeat. Once they feel light and dryto the touch (but definitely not dry enough to crumble if you pinch them), drop in a boveda pack, and you should be good to go. You can burp the jar to allow gas exchange, and you probably should, at least a few times in the beginning. but you won't have to worry about maintaining the humidity levels anymore.

    The dry goes smooth its just the minute i put them into a jar and seal it, even if for a short period of time the smell is completley wrecked

    If I cure using boveda packs would I still need to burp the jars?

    yes you do still burp
    curing is an aerobic process

    If I work and can't wait around for 2-4 hours while burping what would be the best course of action? I've read to cure the buds before drying in Ed Rosenthal's book but that seems like a tedious thing for my first grow, but so is burping the jars in my case.

    So I am on the internets, :) looking for hygrometers. The problem I am having is I live in Denver And we have very dry air. My grows are always fine however even at 30% humidity, I know I know Ive heard to get it up :).. But they grow fine and dandy. My question is how do I get a accurate reading? with such dry air, I see no devices here on amazon that have any kind of rod our arm to stick in the Jar. Could some one link a good Hygrometer. Thanks in advance :weed:

    Never mind.. Answered my own question. Caliber 3

    put them in your tent or near (as in same room, i use the floor) your carbon filter during lights out for your other plant(s) and it will suck the air out quicker.
