Hi @Aiiogrow! After trying many different approaches, I now dry my buds in a DIY container, made of cardboard, with an atomizer regulating the relative humidity and a tiny computer-fan refreshing the air continuously in the environment. If I have enough space I can put the cardboard container in the growtent, otherwise I can let him stand almost anywhere in my house, it creates itself a perfect drying environment (~60% RH, dark, good air renewing). I'll upload some photos soon! DIY is the best way to go! Hope this will help, keep us up-to-date and happy growing :facepunch:

Hello @Aiiogrow ! I made a DIY box from expanded polystyren. I chose this material because it's lite weight, i can work ease with it and it's durable. I connected a 100 mm VK exhaust fan at the top with a carbon filter and i drilled 2 100 mm holes at the bottom so the air can come in. The negative pressure doesn't let the odors to escape just like grow rooms. If i have humidity drops or spikes i use a dimmer and i just dim my fan. I don't see any point on putting any heater inside or humidifier or anything like that because i am always moving the air out so it's not efficient. I would put such devices if my drier was sealed. Happy growing man :facepunch:

Any dark room at around 60% RH will do the job. You can leave the sugar leaves on your buds and dry them on a net or drying rack or you can hang them , those sugar leaves will protect your buds . Drying shall take around 10 to 15 days minimum.

The best way I found to dry is first make sure not light shines on your drying buds keep the drying area at 65 70 degrees 55% humidity and some air flow small fan and u can even get a small dehumidifier really helps u can hang it or use nets or screens to put the bud on trim all the fan leaf's off u can leave the sugar leafs that are close to the bud and u can use any space as long as u stick to the light p and humidity temperature big box closets basements rooms anywhere lol but just watch that no light shines directly on ur bud in brings the the levels down
