your environment can control that to a point. this is why people try to build tiny environments, like jars. I find that to be risky so I use a drying tent, ac, dehuey, humidifier, stink sock, moving fresh air. Weed will of course stone years later, but not everyone is satisfied with just being stoned...fresh is better than old anyway I ever made it. I like my home made wine one year old instead of two also, could be personal preference, should follow it always.. If I leave it hanging for more than a couple of weeks, it's too dry, I've lost the window for a good cure. Even longer than a week seems to affect the taste for me, I guess the room conditions dictate a lot.
