    Default Dehumidifier in the drying room

    Hey all,

    My cindys are coming down soon and RH today has crept upto 65% so I’m going to put in a dehumidifier. When I crop them I’ve got 2 clip on fans blowing air around the room. I’ve got a drying net, and I plan on trimming the buds and chucking them in there and shaking them daily.

    Can I run a dehumidifier in the room set to 50% these buds are dense as fuck so I’m seriously worried about getting mould

    Please help a brother out

    Is that grow room inside another room or in a garage?

    Fresh air comes into the actual room from outside and the room itself is pretty much sealed up like a grow tent

    If you are pulling air in directly from outside, I guess you have no choice but to put it in there. It will dry out the crop a lot quicker so you would have to keep an eye on it!

    FYI - this is based on everything I have read online and been told on here!

    Yeah that’s the issue I’m gonna have, but if it’s set to 50% humidity it should still slow dry shouldn’t it?

    You would think, as i did. I put my one on thinking that and it didn't stop running for a whole day, so I'm guessing it needed to continually run to hold the set RH which means it will be pulling the moisture out the buds rather than a natural evaporation. That in turn speeds up the drying but certain chemicals in the plant won't have time to convert correctly and you end up with harsh smoke.

    If I am wrong, I'm sure someone on here will pipe up soon enough mate!

    Ahh fuck, I’ve used a drying net before numerous times without issues. This is a new grow room tho and as such I’ve got a much better crop this time around. The buds are really dense so I really am worried about just chucking the trimmed destorked buds into the net and just moving them about daily.

    I had this issue my last run and didn't bring humidity down fast enough and had mould in main colas .

    Next time I will run dehumidifier until I lower it down to an acceptable level then remove

    Oh dear this isn’t what I want I think it’s going to be a case of lowering the humidity to 50% with the dehumidifier

    Pull off all the fan leaves and remove anything what contains moisture from the room mate. Get loads of air movement and humidity will drop quite fast

    Another week left mate. Yeah i keep taking a few leaves off now and again. I can’t see any mould on any of the buds so far so that’s good. Chances are it’ll be okay, I'm just worried lol. I’ll get an extra fan to help push the air around a bit and I’ll have the exhaust on full wack. Currently setup on a inkbird to keep temps stable

    Yeh you will be fine mate by the time you take it down.

    Tbh I didnt even know mine had mould until it was dry and I cracked it open, it was like smoke coming out of the bud as soon as it was cracked open
