Are your stems making a nice snap sound when bending after four days?
May I say kind of? My Sour cracks yes but blue toof special is a bit bendy but not a snap. Maybe I should let BTS dry a bit more?

Smoking the hek out of my SC s. Zero hay smell after a week or so in jars.

And thank you for your reply.

Looking for some feedback on WHEN to put my 62% boveda packs in jars.

What I’m doing...dry for 4 days, place in jars with small humidifier. After 12 to 24 hours I check humidity. Last batch sat at 65/68 RH after the 12/24 hours in jars...one up to 72%. That’s when I put my 62% packs in.

In saying that, a few days later RH drops and stays at 59% RH. Checked and double checked my small humidifier and fairly confident in what they display. I’m good with 59%, I think?

Boveda users have many different ways of using Boveda. Some like myself, dry slowly trying to keep the RH in the area about 50%. Then cure with Boveda immediately. While others don't cure with Boveda but add it in for storage. We've heard a trend in the US with large growers who use the 58% to cure but then the 62's to store. The only part of your technique is the time spent in the "risk" zone which is 65% or over. 65 is where microorganism growth begins. In the end, I'd say that yes, you're good at 59% :) Cheers! -Dianna

Thank you for your reply Dianna. Sounds like my sour crack is fine at that percentage. Ended up putting my BTS back in a bag last night and back to jars today.

And great product ya got there!!

Nice I was thinking about growing this strain,where you get the seeds from
I’ve been doing the paper bag trick,seems to work
3 days in a bag dont
Open it you can give it a shake to move the buds around,then after 3 days open bag see how dry it is,if it’s ready into jars,trick to the jars is you have to burp them few times a day for
The first week,worked
Good for me because I refuse to spend money on them fancy moisture packs lol
