    Wet Vs. Dry weight.

    I'm wondering what everyone thinks about weight/water loss.

    I had always thought that your dry weight would be about 25% of the wet weight. (i.e.- 1 oz would dry down to about 1/4 oz). and i have found that to be quite true with all of my harvests.

    a brief discussion in another thread suggests this:

    your wet weight vs. dry weight is pretty similar with mine. had ~60g from last harvest, dried out to about 20g. those other guys are just lucky. pricks...

    Reality sucks but i never knew it sucked this bad. I expected 2 1/2-3oz dry off of my two plants under a 600w hps but it looks like i could get a LOT less.

    Here's the math of it using the weights from your last harvest:

    Wet: 347.3g
    Dry: 75.6g

    (75.6/347.3)=(X/100)
    75.6 x 100 = 7560
    7560/347.3 = 21.76%

    Looks like my 20-25% holds true for you too. good. makes me feel better.

    I have no idea yet for your current grow...haha...i'll say...500g wet...roughly 100-125g dry...

    thanks.

    That is about what I got on my last 2 harvests. 25% of harvest weight after curing.

    if the "dry" weight is any higher than like 28% of the wet weight, be careful how you store it. i smoked a bud that had hidden mold once... ended up fairly sick...

    i measure wet weight, and then dry the zandor way... hangin the whole thing up with air movement all around (not directly on them). once my weight becomes ~26-27% of wet weight i start curing and end up with about 25% of total wet weight....
