I’ve never gotten my trimmed buds to go longer than 3-5 days in brown bags. Leaving them on the branches has helped extend that, but so has using a cardboard box. My rh is in the 50-60% range. I’ve even overdried a few buds this way. I still use it though, don’t have the desire to hang them because there’s too much dang pet hair to get stuck to them

I use the lawn bags now too. They are great and two ply which is good. I did entire harvest of plants using these by taking some cardboard and reinforcing sides and front to maintain shape. Then I cut square out and mounted hygrometer right in bag and ran packing tape over it. I hung entire plants upside down in bags and stuck a pencil through lowest stem and staple bag to each side to suspend plant upside down (I didn't want flat buds like when I laid on bottom) and folded down rest of bag. Put in closet that was 65f 55-60rh for about 10 days. I didn't even look at the hygrometers first few days. It will be high but brown bag material will allow for humidity to escape I didn't seal the bags tight but i did bunch them up and I never burped or opened until around day 7-8 when i tried to snap some stems. By day 10 hygrometer read low 60s
Awesome thanks. I had a little panic attack when I saw 85, but it's already down to 78
