    I calibrate mine by sealing them in a mason jar with a Boveda pack. Just a thought that popped into my head. That was a quick dry. I gotta think the rh in the jar will rise.

    I live in a humid area and I can dry buds for 5 or 6 days and still it is too wet to be jarred up.

    On boveda pacs...if they get hard after a few days, you should replace them...that means they have given all their moisture to the buds...actually I believe you have to get the 2-way boveda pacs to raise the RH...

    Good morning my friends! This is the 2nd plant (planted at same time as the one just harvested weeks ago) this one has taken much longer but has bigger buds and kola. Can you tell me if I should harvest soon? The buds don’t look as tight as last plant. Thoughts much appreciated.

    Nice looking plant. Same strain or different? Sativas for me have always been more airy buds. As usual, if it was my plant, I would give it a bit more time. It should stack on more weight...

    Its foxtailing, happens as a last growth spurt. Take her down anytime now. She may never amber up. Some people have the opinion that it happens when you let the plant go too long, im not sure about that. I do have the experience of plants foxtailing then throwing pollen sacs immediately after.

    I've seen the same thing Lesso described, where the plant is like, "Hey this season/grow spot is extra good", foxtails are a survival mechanism that takes advantage of what the plant percieves as a good microclimate or longer breeding season, combined with a sense that it hasn't been pollinated yet and is hoping for some pollen, even if it has to make its own, and yes bananas are often part of that equation.
    I've even seen it indoors on some strains (I recall my Pure Power Plants doing it) , and will set the foxtail bits aside when manicuring and dry them separately since they are not going to have time to fully ripen. They're great to use for cooking.
