Building a Budget Dry Room – Harvesting & Drying Marijuana

  1. My dead ass broke version… close hanger or string.. walk out to garage.. hang whole plant.. step back. Worked just fine lol.. no hay smell either. Dried for 12 days

  2. Why is it important for the dry room to be dark? During growth I understand you don't want to shock the plans with light during the dark periods, but why does it matter after harvest?

  3. I'm 72 and I haven't smoked cannabis for more than 50 years. This spring I was given a clone which has done well and seems to be producing some nice buds. My next challenge is to harvest and dry the buds. I think I understand the requirements.

    Is there any reason I couldn't simply build a small, light-proof box out of plywood? Since it gets a little bit cold at night during fall season, I figure that I could put the box in my insulated but unheated garage. I think I'll also need at least one fan, a humidifier with a sensor, a thermostatically-controlled heater and air intake and outtake ports. And I'm concerned about the smell so I think I would also need some kind of carbon air-filter.

    And many thanks for your posts. Very helpful. Cheers.

  4. Outstanding cinematography, I’m assuming you could make big bucks producing. Sweet setup , to expand on this you could describe how the temperature is controlled I’m assuming there would be an AC controlling the temperature of the room the drying tent is in ?

  5. I just got a 5×5 vivosun for this last grow, It is full of light leaks, so I will be getting a different brand to grow in, but I am keeping my vivosun as a drying area, about all it's good for

  6. I dont get how that fan with the filter is extracting if the fan and filter are on the outside and the ducting is going into the tent where is the exhausted air being blown out from? Is it being forced through the filter? Someone please answer this.

  7. If you put a filter on the intake you won’t get dusty hairy bud. I’m not sure if that’s an issue for anyone but Ive found it helps quite a bit throughout the growing and drying process.

  8. I decided to do this build how ever my only challenge is being able to hit the ideal temp for the dry which I keep reading is between 70-75 degrees. The only acceptable location for a dry on my side of things is the garage because Congress (Wife) didn’t approve the indoor dry so calibrating temp with AC is out the window. The atmospheric temp in the garage peeks at 85 solid and the humidity is at 45-48. This is with the temp and humidity gage already inside the dry tent. I managed to do a Mickey Mouse AC with a styrofoam cooler and filled with “Ready to go ice packs” and I even filled 3 gallon jugs and froze them so I can periodically swap them when ever it was time to swap and re-freeze. The outcome was a 6point drop and managed to get a 79° reading with a 46% humidity, the fan that helps push the cold air has a bit of a kick and helps circulate air in the tent which makes me feel molding and rot won’t be a factor, and the air is most definitely not being aimed at the buds. The Exhaust fan is fixed on the tent as well and I placed the fan on a vent that leads outside my house to release air from the tent. My only worry… is 78-79 to hot for the dry at 46-47% humidity level? I’m considering adding another styrofoam ac to bring it down some but during the night the temp drops natural to 71-73.. should I play it safe? This happens to be one of my biggest first grows I have ever done lol so any advice is greatly appreciated!

  9. I’m planning on using a grow tent as a drying tent, by any chance can someone write what I need? Do I need a carbon filter exhaust fan? I know I need a little clip on fan, dehumidifier, humidifier to up humidity? What should I use as an exhaust if I need one, or can I leave it a empty hole

  10. I had a old 4×2 Vivosun tent and a spare carbon filter and fan.Decided I would set it up exactly the same to dry my latest Ripley's OG Run. No direct air on the plants, temp 65 F, Dehumidifier set to 55. I constantly monitored conditions with my sensor push gateway everything well within normal parameters but within three days the entire crop inside the tent smells like hay. Any thoughts?
