Heyo, thought I'd post a few pics of my drying box. The idea is to dry in the dark with air movement through your container. Of course you could use other boxes, plastic, wood, metal, etc. I picked this wardrobe box cause it was cheap enough with double strength cardboard and easy to modify anyway you like. I put a 4 inch duct booster fan in the bottom which will pull air in and exit the top. It comes with a hanger support bar, fold out front and easy to fold up and put away when not in use. Vape On! 😎

that looks pretty sweet man 

What’s the smell like when drying guys? I was planning on drying in the tent but that would tie up the tent for growing.

Would it be a crazy idea to hook something like this up to your tent Intake, at least some of the smell would be scrubbed right? 

would only be for the length of dry time, save a week on next grow

@rufio I might be wrong but maybe something like this a small box on top of a big box so there's not Direct air flow onto the buds it just creates a little bit of negative pressure to help keep the smell down

I’ve tried building a few indoor grow areas. Boxes, cupboards, under shelves. But the wardrobe box is a nice size and handy! I’ve just finished my passive outlet on my veg tent, picking up air on the way from drying cupboard. Going to see how it runs but I like the idea of taking it from the intake. 
mill let you know on the results.

byw. That’s a 6” extractor fan, with an old cowling from another screwed back to back and a 4” ducting suspended in the middle. Keeping an eye on temps!!

I've only done the one grow I just finished so I haven't an exact figure of yield but I am fairly confident that I'll hit 1/2 kilo of cured flower only weed once everything is dried and cured, and I have 670 gram of fresh/frozen sugar leaf and flower trim stashed in the freezer as well. 

Above figure doesn't include any weed smoked or kief made so far so another 100 gram easily but since I can't show it I can't claim it 😊

It smells el stinko! I'm growing different varieties with staggered flowering times and any extra moisture at flowering time is not good, however if you had a young/veg crop growing in the tent could be an option as they like the higher humidity. 

We just smiled n waved sittn there on that sack o seeds

Hey that works @jsh1973 ! I prefer a long cooler dry, and in my tent at 26C it would dry too quick for me.
