    I truly do believe we are, & even if we are not there yet, we are certainly becoming. :)

    What do you use to measure your humidity. Do you enclose the herb in a container with a hydrometer?

    Yes I have many mini hygrometers that I use for curing my lovingly grown flowers....
    There are many cheap options....

    But some are more accurate that others....

    Kelly...which mini hygrometer(s) do you consider more accurate than others?

    I like the 58's quite a bit as well. I just picked up a 10-pack of them in the 2oz size, hopefully that means that the earlier rumors of the 58's being discontinued were in error, or that the decision was reversed. The 2oz size is perfect for these 2oz jars that I like to keep samples of my favorite dispensary strains in:

    I was keeping these jars in their box to keep them light-tight, but then when I was looking for something to keep shatter fresh and brittle I found the only well-rated (many knock-offs) usb-powered 'refrigerator':

    [​IMG]

    It automatically runs in 'low power mode' when powered by usb, and it also comes with a 12v and an ac adapter where it supposedly runs colder, but I've found the low power mode perfect for this use. Maybe if you wanted to put beer/soda in it go with a different power source. The little 2-oz jars pictured above fit perfect on the upper shelf, these jars go underneath, and the shatter fits neatly inside the door:

    Sorry for going off on a tangent, but at least it's all storage-related :tup:

    Thanks, I try. Medical storage is important!

    :doh:I do need to make a correction though.
    I severely overestimated the storage capacity of the lower area of the usb refrigerator, and since the jars arrived I have been searching for a new solution. I felt pretty silly when they came from amazon because I already have those pint jars in my kitchen, just in clear. Now I have four more blue ones, cool but only one of them fits, and it's very tight height-wise. When I was at the hardware store today I took a shot at these, bought a whole dozen no biggie I always find a use for jars it seems. They're much better but still not a perfect fit, because to fit four of these jars in this same area of the refrigerator requires two of the jars to be stored upside-down. It's that tight, but there is a good 3/4" of room to spare height-wise, so perhaps there's an even more prefect 8-oz jar out there; a little taller & skinnier but not too different would be perfect.

    I'm pleased to add that my local true value beat prime by over $5 :tup:

    Just ordered one thanks mate! I have been using the Caliber 111's the last 3 years. I am yet to have one unit that didn't die within 12 months.

    I have returned each one under warranty. Currently I have 2 new units which were only £6 each on Amazon.

    They arrived dispaying identical humidity readings. Now they are 1% apart. I have had them 2% apart in the past, in which case I split the difference.
    I wish hygrometers were generally more reliable, I will see hiw this new one reads.

    So if I read all this right, if I throw one of the little 4gr versions of the 58rh it may help keeping a 2-3grams of flower moist? It certainly can't hurt it seems. Not sure my rh right now but I've had a little jar'd up for a while and I'm certain it's losing a little smell and it's certainly more dry than it used to be. I'm looking to simply add a little moisture if possible. These are in small 2oz jars.

    The smallest is 4 grams, not 2. I have this size & I use them in 4 oz jars. Put it in & leave it for a week before checking on it.

    Ok thank you, it is the 4g size. Think it will do anything to the dryer ones?

    @toked23, yes, it will. I had 2 types of herb lingering around for quite some time & they were really dry, especially during the winter months with hot-air heating & no humidification. So I tried these & they re-hydrated them nicely over time. The key is to give it a little time to work & not to keep opening the jar to peek as this allows the humidity to escape. Definitely give it a week before you take a peek; OK, at least 5 days. ;)
