I dont think temps around that will matter too much but i could be wrong...
Just make sure that the buds dry out in complete darkness and have air flow. The point of drying is to obviously get rid of the moisture, so the higher the temps, the less moisture in the air and the faster they will dry out.

So i guess colder temps should just take the bud longer to dry out, however, i do not know how much longer. It could minimal but idk.

hope this helped:smoke:

It shouldn't be too bad for it like grahamie said, dark and air flow.
A de-humidifier is a very good friend at this point especially when you can adjust the humidity level. Somewhere around 20% is what i was always told. And they usually make a lil bit of heat when they are running, so if the current temps are trippin you out i'd try it.

Seems i get better results in colder temps.. Humidity is often lower in cooler temps.. Higher temps seem to dry them out too quickly.. at cooler temps like yourself, usually takes me about 10 days to dry.. 1-2 additional if need be, then straight into jars..

From my readings, this is fairly correct.

65-75 degrees is fairly optimal. Less than 65 degrees should lengthen the drying time. Temps greater than 75 degrees cause the exterior of the bud to dry faster than the interior.

Humidity levels should be around 40-60%.
