Hello I cut the buds off and placed them in a drying net with a fan on low pointed at a corner to just circulate air I have a humidifier beside the fan and all of that in a small 4x4 tent the RH bounces from 20-35 percent and I can’t figure out how being there’s a machine making steam in there so I assume the tool I use to measure the RH is broken which I don’t think it is or I don’t see what I’m doing so can anyone help me figure out what I’m doing wrong it’s day three and I’m worried I’m gonna dry them instead of cure them . Oh and temp is 65 degrees

Just jar them up early. When the outer bud feels dry but the inside has moisture, if too soon and buds feel damp when opening the jar after a several hours just take them out spread them out till dry on outside and repeat.
Use the jar to control the drying process.

It's how I do it

Steam? In your drying tent? like A humidifier inside the tent? Maybe you can get something else to check the humidity?
It’s a humidifier an a small bit of steam comes out the top of it to add moisture to the air . I will look into a newer tool to check it

You need to get the humidity out of the buds at this point and as fast as possible to avoid mold. I hang my bud in an out buiding with a fan on it for about a week until it feels dry then jar only if under 68%. But definately not an expert.
