Agree with my mystic brother, dehumidifier is critical. I'm also in a high humidity environment and have the air conditioner set at 20. I've added a Hitachi Air Purifier because it also removes humidity. I have taken several of the smaller buds and after 1 week put them into brown paper bags loosely folded....then check day by day shake the bags....do a dance and wait. I had some of the big buds go to mold so am being 1000% careful.
1 week after looking REALLY good and EVERYTHING is in a different brown paper bag. I've taken a bud or two and put them in jars...no ammonia smell at all...looking good to me.

Hey, thanks for all the different input, was very helpful. My last dry was in the fall so I just used some Damp Rid which helped. This grow it was 85 Rh ,used more Damp Rid to no avail. Took advice and got a small electric dehumidifier, fantastic. Took my closet down to 72 Rh in 36 hours. Got from amazon,got next day.Its name is Vavsea, takes up to 300ml. a day about 9 oz. Good features. Highly Recommended to bring down humidity fast in up to 150 sq. feet.Small roughly 6 x 6 x 8.6 in. Check it out if you have humidity problems. I'll never dry without it.

Glad to hear things are drying out there for you. Got everything here in different brown paper bags day 4 and shake and open daily. Slowly drying and see no sign of any mold. Test bud in a jar smells like honey, very nice. 9 plants I estimate 200 grams.

Think I'm gonna try the bag thing on my lower harvest. I had read about people doing a double harvest so I'm doing it. I harvested the tallest and biggest part,basically the top half and left the bottom get some more light without the obstruction from the top. Top half is dried and now curing. The lower I'm gonna harvest today and try your bag method. I'm using all the bottom to make cooking oil.

I weighed each bag and contents and wrote the date and will be curious to see how the totals differ; just for shits and giggles doesn't matter. I'd rather be 6 months early than a day late when it comes to learning something new.

Well I harvested bottom and dried it. Was cleaning and realized that I had alot of nugget buds, not using that to cook, thats smoking dope. Even all the rest was very good, just picked up nearly an oz. to this harvest.

Yes, if no dehumid, you need bare minimum constant air on the product. The humid is always going to be a fight for you my friend, same situation I live with here in Seattle.
