a frig is more cold than cool, which would largely stop the drying process. i think most refrigerators run around 40 F, about 20-30 degrees below a drying room/cabinet. a closet might be a better place than a frig.

Yeah and theres no air movement to help with the drying process

take care and be safe

Yeah not a good idea at all in my opinion either...that wld be the last place I wld dry my bud. I dry in a tent or a closet...or both if it has been a really good harvest......:hubba:

I think the way to tell if it might work would be to measure the relative humidity in the frige. The lack of air circulation is definitely not a plus though. I've been wondering about reduced temperature drying. Going to have to dig out a very old book and look again at the gas laws. Why don't you try just one bud and see how it goes.

All I know is I keep my cuts in the fridge for 4 weeks at a clip and they still throw roots. Doesn't sound like it wld do a good job of drying at all. Like paw paw said...I wld worry about the humidity and lack of air circulation.

I just glanced through some formulas and they seem to confirm my faltering memory that all else being equal the evaporation rate for a given (fixed) RH is independent of temperature. Thus drying at 45 degrees F (7.2 C) seems entirely possible. I'm waiting on delivery of a book that I hope will detail the role of oxygen in curing before an attempt at designing an "ideal" drying/curing box that uses peltier devices to cool and dehumidify the box, and an oxygen scrubber if that turns out to be desirable. I'll keep y'all posted.
