Hi! I have two plants in same tent. One will be done 5-6 days before the other one. Someone mentioned shoebox... what would you say is the best way to dry the first plant if it has to be inside the tent while other plant is finishing up? Humidity/Temp only possible in tent for me

lol not a shoebox man, you want something bigger, check out what I did I used a normal sized cardboard box, hopefully it fits in your set up ! mine had plenty of room, even on the tray it was set on... just kinda made a hole on the top (some folks put the hole on the side) then put a spare intake fan pointing out.... you want air circulation and you want you bud hanging, not laying on their side because they will get kinda mishappen : gravity is a hellova thing ! The box does help though - keeps it dark and well air circulated lol . dassit ! :rocket:

You can hang your plants to dry and cover with dark garbage bags to protect from light during day hours and remove at night so they can breathe, and dry. I think its mainly those first several days where the cut plant is still alive thats best for it to have minimal light. Good luck. Happy harvesting. :v:
Oh i see youre on 24 hour light...any chance youll change that as plants prepare for the end? Possibly a 18/6?

Hi @MagnoliaFrost, a drilled shoebox next to your air intraction could work great to dry your buds while the other plant ends its ripening. I like to dry my buds on their stems, keeping them upside down, so I use a DIY 'drying room' made of cardboard. This is almost like the shoebox but bigger in height and it contains some supports to hang my branches. Don't forget to drill tiny holes and double check that air goes through the cardboard (risk of mold/bud-rot) and that light don't penetrate (risk of degrading the product). Hope this will help, keep us up-to-date and happy growing :facepunch:

Hello ! Well it's simple in your case , if your wardrobe is not too humid you can put the drying plants in with a fan in front of them to settle a constant airflow and avoid any mold (it's working for me with high RH). You can build a small drying box and don't forget the fan if you humidity is too high. You can put a shoebox in your box (with small holes for the airflow). But as soon as the rest of your crop is ready it's better to dry them together out of the box . I hope it will help you :grin::+1:
