Questions What's your drying system?
I've just recently chopped about 4 days ago, I was checking them today and thought I would be interesting to see how people are drying there harvest.
My personal preference is to chop and leave pretty much everything on whole but half the plant down the middle, then hang.
I have a tiny dehumidifier and a tower fan sweeping the tent under the plants.
I'm interested to see what people do, especially any gadgets like the herbsnow dryer and the wedryer in particular because I'm thinking of changing methods because of the space my tent takes and with children in the house I'd like to hide it as much as possible.
I usually remove all the bigger leaves, cut each branch off and hang them on washing lines (shoe laces) across the top of the tent, and hopefully a row underneath too depending on the harvest.lol
I have an oil heater in the tent and a small tower fan rotating on low, it's sitting at 18c RH 55%
I dont have any extraction or any fancy shit for my tent, it's just a tent 😆 But this last grow I left all the leaves on because I didn't want it drying too quick, I just chopped her in chunks and hung the whole plant the same way.
A tent, string, a heater and a fan is all im using right now 🙂

Love is all that matter, with it you can achieve anything.
I use my 5x5 tent for drying. It's also a veg tent so I already have AcInfinity fan in there. I use fans for air flow and a dehumidifier/humidifier depending on season. I also cut my plants down whole with big fan leaves taken off normally. I will admit that the drying curing phase still is the hardest part for me.
Sorry i know this doesn't help you as you were looking for a machine type dryer.
For me I will use a spare tent if it will fit hung whole plant with the fan leaves removed. In the tent I have a GDP auto hanging with temps around around 62F and 55% as my preference. Takes around 10days. I add my humidity by a tray of some water and a small 4" fan angled towards it , with most air hitting the tent floor and then up giving a gentle air flow. Summer I need to use AC. Winter it is steady around 62F where I dry. The room has a 4" Carbon filter scrubbing it. If the harvest is too large for a spare tent I hang them on laundry racks in the same room and add a larger fan for air flow.

I have a furnace/AC room on the second floor (like a loft) of my garage that I use. It's separate furnace and AC for the second floor of the house. I just want to make sure to keep the unit off for 10 days or so. I put USB fans in the room blowing around, but not directly on the drying plants.
My entire garage is climate controlled. However, I don't even try to cool below 72ºF in the warmer months. Meaning, as the weather warms I will not be able to get to 60/60. It will be more like 70-75ºF and 50-60% RH. I have a moisture meter for wood, but I've never used it.

If it's a small plant I'll hang whole in my closet, if a larger girl I'll chop up and use the mesh drying rack. Drying area is in my 6ftx2ft closet that also houses two 2x2 tents. I leave the fan running in my room and open/close the door to adjust humidity. Start out around 65% end around 52ish%.
Basically I just throw them in the closet and hope for the best.... 😄 It has worked great so far! Dry in 10-14 days and 52-56% humidity maintained in jar.

I do what most of the others are as well. Chop and hang with the fan leaves removed and small fan moving air around in my spare tent. I did try a drying rack with my last harvest and was happy with it
I have a dedicated tent that i can control temp and humidity in for drying, i do however wet trim so its a little more crucial for me that i get the conditions perfect. i have hung whole plant etc in the past but the way i do it now seems to work the best for me.
I feel like a, like a slice of butter... melting on top of a big-ol' pile of flapjacks... yeah.
My humidity is only 20-30% here in the winter. I wet trim and put them in my net drying bag for 3 days ( if i leave them for 4 days they are too dry ). then i place them in my jars ( with Hygrometers) and let them sweat then place them back on the nets for a couple hours repeating this until they are at 62% usually at day 6 or 7 they are at 62%. Then I burp them daily until they are 58% and weekly after that until they reach 54%
