    Hey new to indoor growing all has been well but I am having a issue controlling humidity with drying in my tent, I have a dehumidifier running out side my tent fan filter on medium setting and a smaller fan blowing air (not at the plants) day 2 of dry and my Temps are perfect at 21c but my humidity is sitting at 59% will I have a issue with mold? Stressed out help guys I need this medicine.... Thanks

    No worries, I dry at 60-65% so they don't get crispy and finish the final bit during the curing process. Better to go into curing a little wetter than too dry and at your RH they'll dry slower as well. Have never seen mould myself anywhere near those RH levels. Just make sure there's air exchange in the room, no air blowing directly at them but air movement inside the room.

    So how many days do you usually hang before curing at that rh?

    Depends on how wet they were when chopped, typically 5-7 days averaged out.

    Ya I figured that as much, I'm in ont and looking for quality genetics via online or in the county would you recomend a safe secure source? . I'm in the acmpr world Prob don't have to tell you my deilema as with finding seeds that suits my health needed and I'm definitely not going to pay huge cash on clones. Any input would be extremely helpful

    Yeah I get it. There's a couple of small seed banks here that sell, cash is sometimes the only way to get them now though, the card companies are clamping down on online seed sales so a lot of them end up having to accept bitcoin or cash. Still some that are accepting cards but it's hit & miss.

    I don't worry too much about wether the banks are in Canada or not, have never had an issue receiving seeds. If you select a stealth option they'll charge a bit more for it but package it so it's more likely to male it. Some of the banks I've bought from and never had issues below, purchases within the last 6-12 months. Only banks I'd stay away from are US based as there's a lot of scrutiny going on with anything crossing that border right now, I noticed any shipments coming across in the last 6 months have been inspected and held up at customs, most recent were 2x shipments of lights, fkrs held them for a week.

    In Canada:
    Peak Seeds BC
    BC Bud Depot
    Hemp Depot

    European:
    ACE seeds
    Breeder's Boutique
    Dr. Chronic
    Sannies

    I don't mean to jack your post but I'm having an issue with the RH in my jar. Product is brittle and hard/dense but when I let it sit for 24~ish hours my RH skyrockets to 70% been back and forth for almost a week and a half to two weeks and still can't seem to make any progress under 69-70%.

    I usually pop the lid to look (Cvault) and if it's high I set them out for a couple of hours, room RH is between 55-60% but nada. Any comments would be appreciated!

    leave them out longer, sounds like you didnt dry them enough before jarring, dangerous as you can get mould

    Have you considered keeping a Boveda pack in your jar?

    Yes but this is my first grow and just learned what nanners were, so I have some crop finishing but I'm waiting for the rest of the harvest before using the pack :???:

    I do have a question about the boveda 62s, a fellow experienced grower/owner of a organic/hydro shop told me about the packs and said he uses them as soon as buds go into the jars for the first week and still burps the first week then after that just jar them without? They guys pretty well known in the area for producing premium quality organics and is in regular contact with follow growers like Remo and other organic growers that are credible ect so anyone have any input? First time with the packs and I have hurd great things so let's hear it??

    I mean, how to they actually work? How can I keep them after a single use and breaking the initial sealing of the bag?

    In hindsight there cheap 30beens for 20 packs every harvest for a dead nuts rh in jar, they just regulate humidity, I would rather go that route 4 months work for a 7 day mistake cureing know what I'm saying

    Integra Boost packs blow Bovedas out of the water and last longer too. They also come with an indicator that lets you know when its time to change them.

    My local shop has replaced their Boveda with Integra, I honestly couldnt remember the name, and was 2 lazy to go downstairs and look... but yea, Integras are better...

    As for how they work... its just a humidor... think of keeping ur bud in a high end cigar case... only with the packs, every jar is a perfectly regulated humidor specific to your bud :)
