Drying Concern
    #1783320 - 08/05/03 11:56 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

I rent a house where i do my growing; as a result, I can only run my fan for about 12 hours a day because it's possible someone could look at the house because its up for sale after my lease.
I know everyone recommend 24-48 hours fan drying then placing in dessication chamber but.......
Is okay if i fan dry for 12 hr then put it in desication chamber then repeat the cycle till dry or would i suffer to much loss in potency or risk mold contamination?
Any input would be appreciated :-}

That should work ok. Be sure to start the first cycle with a fanning.

Should i expect a significant loss in the "magic" so to speak, if spaced compared to fan drying contiuosly then placing in a dessication chamber.

The only reason i ask is cause i started to do this with 4.2 wet ounces of cambo I harvested yesterday and then after the first 12 hr cycle of desication they appear very blue more so than when i have normally dried them in the past?

It should not affect potency at all.

Fan drying first is just a preference. Some people put 'em right into the dessication chamber. Of course, if you don't fan dry first you'll use up a lot more dessicant, but the stuff is so cheap it doesn't really matter.

Of course, to dry really quickly, rig up a small fan inside your dessicant chamber
