    Default using cardboard box for drying?

    hi all i just wondering if you got a cardboard box and put holes in it but make them from inside to outside and then hang bud on string and then leave it in your veg room where there is proper ventilation and carbon filter then should it be alright to dry?

    how would you eliminate any light getting in there?

    its a bit of a push and risk in my room having 2 tents (veg/flower) then another for drying so having the carboard box inside tent would be real big help

    Hi mate. On my 1st grow I used a cardboard box for drying doing the same as u said but I had my box outside my groom ducted in to take the smell away. Couldn't u put the box on top of ur tent and duct it in some how to either of ur tents.
    As far as the light issue u could cut the flaps from inside and stick some more on the inside too, so it has a flap on the inside and out (make sure u tape the flaps open so they don't close with the passive intake through the box.
    Hope that help abit mate.
    Good luck.

    try my method and buy some wire mesh and two small blocks of wood (to raise the mesh from the base of wherever)and put them in an empty sock drawer.

    i have 2 empty cardboard 'bells whiskey' boxes on either side of my drawer and mesh that youd use for a rabbit hutch and jobs a gooden!!!!!

    leave draw slightly open for couple hours a day whilst windows open and you'll be sweet as a nut.

    I use a cardboard box aswell mate. A layer of mesh to rest the bud on an a hole cut in the side where I have attached a pc fan to blow in fresh air then put that in my groom with the top weighted down an put a blanket on the top to stop most of the light.

    It works an also I have no smell coz its all enclosed in my groom with a carbonfilter.
