I appreciate you doggy, but that hoe been chopped. Germin a GSC auto now

I have been known to put a RUDEralis one a bud cycle of 12/12. Hardens up their buds sometimes. I do not grow autos, but they have their place.

@Graysin @Autos-only @OGIncognito I am ruining my grows by not being able to Harvest correctly. I cut them down. Do a Peroxide dip and hang them in a Cardboard Wardrobe Box. They seem to dry out within 3 to 5 days. Any ideas on how to slow the drying out???

Cooler temps help evaporate slower.

Somewhere around 60/60 is good.

What are your temps?

I just allow it to dry in 3-5 and sack em in grove bags. They cure fine that way.

I have been watching eBay auctions, I been able to get a vivosun v2000 for 84$ and a viparsoectra P1500 for 51$. So 350 Watts for around 135$. Check out the auctions and put on your watchlist. Made the highest bid you are willing to go, you’d be surprised how many times I’m the only bidder and win for cheap. Also!!! Vivosun takes offers on eBay for real! You can get 10-20$ off every item, always way cheaper than Amazon

5 days has been the norm using my Wedryer. Longer when I dry in my tents which is rare these days. Like @Graysin the grove bags help tremendously :love_you_gesture:

In my opinion longer dry at lower temps produces the best results. I live in the desert and short dry times have never been a problem. Now I dry around 64 degrees and 50-60% humidity until the stems crackle when folded but do not break in half. It takes between 8 and 12 days. Then I jar them up. Since I changed my ways I can store my buds for years and it’s still fresh n tasty.

Hey @VOL4LIFE I’m good. How’re you?

Life has been hectic to say the least. :joy: I’m waiting around in a doctors office for my MIL, so I actually had a spare moment to check out the forum!

Life never slows down does it! I am okay but having a busy life too. Are your plants doing well? I had a bad time curing my last run. I am trying another run but I am going to need a lot of your help to cure it next time @Graysin. My last batch dried out too much!

I just got a handful of clones from my local dispensary and have some clones that @JaneQP and @Growingforothers mailed me last year. They’ve been vibing in their clone shippers for almost a full year.

My last plant died tragically in March when I left town for a week and forgot to ask anyone to water them for me :joy::rofl::joy:

Sorry im asking off your past but i really need to know what peoples advice is when it comes to my plan. I want to start some cinex seeds next week and do 24/7 light till around mid june or july and put them in a greenhouse setup for the remainder. Any advice?, never have completed my own grow so any replys would be appreciated thankyou

18/6 is recommended, and it won’t cost extra with the light being on 24/7.
