Drying mode/ Harvest

Hay everyone … i wanted to start a thread for harvesting and curing buds… Just harvested my Tangerine Dreams yesterday and is in the 5x day drying mode…
@Stephen Does having the fan on dry the buds out quicker? I have only dried my buds without a fan… I heard it dries the bud out too fast or i am totally wrong? Love to hear your opinion. I ll update the thread when the buds are ready for curing.


Hi @Jamminbear,

What a sweet looking harvest! Congrats on completing your 1st Grobo grow.

The dry mode does have both fans on, lights off. I’ve extended the time from 3 to 5 days, to allow a bit more flexibility for the grower. I would check the buds daily until they are ‘crisp’ to the touch, feeling dry. I usually like to begin the cure after about 3 days, but some strains may require an extra day or two. We are trying to pull 75-80% of the moisture out of the plant quickly, then the curing process takes the remaining moisture out slowly.

You have done it right by placing your largest bud in the centre, and the smaller ones around. What an exciting time!



I just ended the grow and try to put it into dry mode but it gave an error code 500… I can’t get to my grobo on the app now, and the lights are stuck on… can you please help…

Hmmm… bummer @Uglyo217, did you put a ticket into support.grobo.io already? Check the obvious stuff like logging out of the app, un-plugging unit to reset…? In that order, should give you the choice to choose a recipe again, if it really ended your grow, and after reset, drying mode should work.


No I didn’t I unplugged it for a couple of minutes and it went back to the normal setup and it allowed me to set it on dry mode now with no problems.


@Uglyo217 the same thing happened to me. Cleared cache, tried diff browser etc. I put in a ticket, but after a couple hours it just started working. shrug

@GroboJason maybe something to look into if it’s happened to a few of us.


hi @rainstorm3 that is a great suggestion! I will pass along the feedback to the team so they can take it into account for future updates to the system


I wanted to know, when the grobo is in drying mode do it stop by itself on day 5 or do I have to stop it myself? My grobo is saying day 5 in the drying mode but its still going…

It is your manual click to End Grow… If the Bud is a little crispy when slightly pinched, then she is done… :wink:


I had the same internal server error (500) when I put my harvest into drying mode. Cant access anything though, app or otherwise? shrugs Put in my ticket already.

Same issue, Error 500 or when on computer Error 404 webpage not found

Am waiting for response from support team but as of yesterday I just unplugged and had to
hang my grow in a closet. Can’t access app from phone or laptop. Nothing is working

Hi @Saint

I’ve seen the ticket, please plug the unit back in so we can dig and diagnose your issue. We will get you fixed up asap. @Hainesjr1, you too please.


I have plugged back in as of 4 pm cst, you confirmed it’s showing as being online in your email.
I still can’t access the app on my phone or computer without the before mentioned error messages.
My grobo interior light is fluctuating from a very muted red like a darkroom to complete dark or as
of now full white light like it was still growing. Remember I ended my grow on Sun., drained tank,
harvested and after cleaning everything attempted to enter drying mode. Not sure if that was even
accomplished because I can’t get to Mygrobo to see what is happening. Since I have been typing this it has gone through 2 of the above mentioned light cycles, all the while the LED is slow pulsing blue. I thought maybe it had corrected itself and hung my harvest back in the unit but with all of the
light it’s frequently displaying I’m afraid that is affecting the dry, it is supposed to be dark while drying and curing correct ? I also would like to start another grow asap. I have done every possible thing I can think of, rebooting phone,laptop,but it’s not my internet or devices, I have no contact with my grobuddy

Mine seems to be better after I came home from work @Stephen. Pulled my buds out from drying mode and going to post my dry weigh pre cure for you guys soon.

Ok sitting here waiting for my support call meeting that was scheduled at 10:45 EST
Where is my support ?

Of course right after last post, I check my apps and it looks like you guys fixed the problem,
I have apps back on both computer and my phone, I waited on conference call thing but nobody
joined the call so I guess that’s probably why. How can I stop the dry mode it’s in and begin next grow ? I’m not using the unit to dry after going back and forth last 2 days it’s now drying in dark closet, but
I would like to get started on #2

hi @Saint sorry for missing your call, I don’t think I received a confirmation for that meeting, did you book that through the website or on our support page?

Otherwise you can go ahead and terminate your grow from the app and you will get prompted to pick a new recipe! In between grows don’t forget to keep your pH probe wet!
