about security when installing ventilation: The vent should not offer the world a view of your growroom, and the fragrant air that escapes it must be filtered if odor is an issue.
Since you’ve planned carefully, you already have a safe and secure space set aside to hang all those magnificent buds you just cut down—right? Drying cannabis requires cooler temperatures and far less humidity than will be found in your growroom, not to mention total darkness. The ideal location will have enough room to spread out your buds so that air can pass between them, helping to dry them thoroughly and evenly. A closet will work for most indoor grows, but you may need something bigger depending on the size of your harvest. Keep the temperature around 70°F and the humidity near 50%. Circulate the air with a fan, but do not point the fan directly at your buds—and never dry high-quality cannabis in direct sunlight.
You should also keep in mind that your cannabis will never smell more fragrant (or incriminating) than immediately after harvest. Take all the precautions necessary to ensure that you’re the only one enjoying the aroma.
