Drying in a cardboard box VS a closed bathroom
    #687812 - 10/06/13 06:15 PM (3 years, 1 month ago)

So drying has been one of my biggest issues. Since it's flourescent grown , it's not very dense so it tends to dry out faster trapping the chlorophyll for a grassy taste and smell.

I've found the best way for a slow dry is just cutting it at the base and hanging the whole plant upside down and dry manicuring later.

Currently they are hung in a cardboard box with the door closed (not air tight) and a small fan in a corner not blowing directly on them. Would I have better success this way versus hanging them in a bathroom that isn't used currently and keeping the door closed and lights off in there?

My reason for wondering is different air circulation in both types. Looking for the best dry here, not the quickest. What do you guys think?

Just try it out.  It's really going to depend on the conditions of each place.  No one in here will be able to tell you for sure, since we can't really see what the conditions are going to be like.

Im thinking about just leaving it in the carboard box but I was afraid that the moving air in a smaller more closed space might dry faster than a large open area.

Just hang it as you would normally, but just expect to find it
dry enough to jar in a matter of hours rather than days.

(i.e. you will want to check it very often)

When it just begins to feel dry, then jar it.

You cannot wait for the snapping stem.

Good luck,

JD
