    This is my first "real" grow. I harvested my plants 11/5/19. I trimmed them and have them hanging in my grow room. The ventilation system is running and a fan is blowing indirectly to circulate the air. The ambient temperatures have been in the 70's all week. I understand you don't want them to dry too quickly, but should my light be on? Right now I have a 400 watt LED light. I know it's only been 4 days

    Hi Steve, no light. I dry in a cool dark dry room with little to no fan, but we have very low humidity here, so you will have to consider yours. When the stem breaks and not just bends mean they are ready. Then you will need to read up on how to cure. We have a sticky on that.
