Can I dry with the lights still on?

by testingmygreenthumb about March 25 - report

I have this ak48 that was a surprise auto so it's finishing way before my other 2 plants. Can I dry it in my tent with my other plants still in 12/12? I thought I read somewhere once that your supposed to dry in the dark so thats what iv always done. Iv just got a 2x4 tent.

    You can hang it inside a cardboard box if you have one big enough.

      Boxes work great! just keep an eye out if you live in a humid area

    tons of alternatives man. cardboard box like F1Tinman says is a popular way. really, darkness is preffered. we all know that. if you have a spare closet that would work. i hang my stuff on clothes hangers and get aboot 5-10 stalks on each but i have two tents

     Cut it, trim it, put it in a brown paper grocery bag, and set it in the corner of a room. Not in your flower area though. The humidity is (should be) too low and the bud will dry too quickly.

     Check the bag every couple of days, and "toss" the buds around to get the drier top buds mixed in with the wetter buds underneath.

    Could always put a small tarp up as a wall in your tent if that’s your only place to grow /dry and all that

    Light is not good. I'd try to block light but keep air flowing. Just be careful about flammable material in your tent. Draping some sort of fabric over them might work.

    Turpines are volatile at a low temperature and I would expect a loss of Turpines put an attempt.

    Caiman in right about light degrading the terpines in the buds, so it is best if you can dry and cure your weed in the dark, or at least not under direct lighting. A cardboard box or something like that will work along with a dark closet or cabinet.  You can find somewhere in the dark to dry this i am sure.  Peace

    Lots of good answers, thanks guys. Since its just one little plant, I'll just dry it outside of the tent in a box with a little airflow and not worry about the smell.
