Hey guys. Looking for some suggestions on my issue. In a few days I have to chop the ladies down. My issue is that my temp is 20 to 22 C and humidity is 25 to 32 RH. I dont want to dry it to fast and smoke the tarps. I have a bathroom with a fan and a working sink. I'm wondering how I can maybe get the humidity up without a humidifiers or would the humidity and temp be ok to dry in there without destroying the terpenes?

Just trying to see if I can better the situation or if anyone had run into these issues before either. Any advice and comments welcome!

Do better, feel better.

@colacody At xmas it was cold here and the humidity dropped into the 30's, I put a kettle in my grow room and boiled it up every now and then and it sorted it, maybe not recomended tho.haha

@colacody Im growing in a bathroom too, well... in the shower, it has a glass door on it and the glass was nice and steamy after the kettle boiled.haha the temp was also a little low at the same time and the kettle fixed the temp and the humidity problem, my grow room/shower is 26" by 46" by about 7ft high if thats any help, might be worth a try, it certainly fixed my problem at the time.

@colacody defo need to get that humidity up mate and temps down or just gonna have really dry bud with no flavour. I’ve took my eye of the ball before and that happened to me you didn’t need a grinder you could just brake it up with my fingers into powder😞 Β maybe a damp towel on a heater I’ve done that before in a small space but the kettle sounds like a great idea. Good luck mateπŸ‘Š

So little update on this issue. I have put a bucket of ice with a fan to help cool the air a bit and get some moisture. I opened the basement window at the other end of the basement (only one) and let the cold air come in. The temps are now about 20 and humidity is closer to 40. I have some of my bag seed lemon kush drying now to test it out before the LAPK go in there for the grow off.Β 

I've been reading up a bit on other people with the same issue as I have now and some people have had success with drying for a few days (3-5) and then do a quick trim and into the jars and burp them more frequently and have a small hygrometer in the jar to closely watch the levels. See what happens with this but...cant do much but try my best. Ill update the results as well and we can all have an idea of what to do if we get stuck with issues like mine. Always an adventure over here in these gardens lol
