@echo perhaps 15mins per hour is no longer enough. What stage of the grow are you at ?

If holding in heat is the issue you might try to change the interval to 5 minutes every 20 minutes if your timer can do this. It might allow a more consistent environment. If you aren’t fighting cold temps just increase the run times.

When drying, bud may smell hayish .. keep temps 20c or lower and RH 50 ish 

the weed smell will come back so long as not drying too fast (or slow) 

 

Time to pop some more beans 😗

@echo sorry mate I'm a bit slow 😂

Think I would run the extraction full time on a setting that drops RH to between 45-50% 👨‍🎓

Well that's what the Percy's Guide says 😁👍

Congratulations on your grow mate !
