I would recommend getting something like this:
to turn off your humidifier once the desired humidity is reached. When i first got my greenhouse case the humidifier made everything soaking wet, but without it the humidity is still too low for my calatheas. This keeps it at a perfect level. Just make sure if you do choose to use this, the humidifier doesn’t need to be turned on every time manually or it won’t work.
Yes, and Yes. It’s a Taotonics humidifier that I have plugged into a humidity controller.

No I don't, I should test that. But its in a basement so Im guessing it'll be a bit humid and cold. Something like this looks pretty dang cool though. Is it essential do you think? Or just checking once/twice per day and turning on humifier/dehumidifier to adjust should work?
You need the Inkbird humidity sensor, not the temp sensor, along with a miniature humidifier
You can build drying/curing boxes. Hang dry for a few days if you can first then get large totes or garbage cans. Put a couple PC fans in the sides to pull air in with a few passive exhaust vents. Then use a hydrometer controller to run the fans, probably set it low like 55% and when you get home bovida up to 62. It's not ideal and still might get bud rot especially if they go in too moist, but I think it's your best bet besides just hanging them in a closet until you get back, which might not get you bad results.

It's called a controller. It reads humidity and turns power on and off to an outlet. You can have a humidifier, a fan, a ultrasonic fogger anything plugged in to it. Don't bother with wifi if your on a budget. Inkbird is a great manufacturer and can probably get a basic controller for $40. Then add a humidifier. 👍
As far as rh is concerned, I've been leaving one of the vents open at the top of our 4x4 tent, as well as leaving off one of the "peek windows" and turning the rest of the space into a blacked-out darkroom during night period. The humidifier is daisy chained through the lights (2x 600W Viparspectra LEDs, fairly low-temp), and cuts off on the same timer. As a result, we average 75degrees F and 68% rh, but it isn't consistent.
As SOON as that stimulus gets here, We'll be adding a humidistat to our tent and hopefully an inline vent fan to improve airflow:
If your humidifier has a humidistat you can set a humidity to set it at and it will turn off when it reaches it but if it doesn’t have that you can buy this and plug it in and set it. It will turn your humidifier off when the humidity is reached. Good luck!
Nah. It's pretty easy. Get a switch that detects humidity, and then automatically turns on or off certain plugs based on the parameters you set.
I'm not recommending this specific one. Definitely do research and find one that fits you and that you believe to be likely to be reliable.
Bought it in Feb (used it in a tent style greenhouse at first) is working perfectly.
This is what I use to control my humidifier. The fan is on the bottom shelf, pointing upwards. It's a PC type USB fan.
You're able to use both sensors at the same time, but there are only two electrical outlets on the device. I haven't had a need to run both sensors, but you would just get one outlet per function. With this, you'd only get to control either the high end or low for each, not both.
As an example:
This video does an awesome job of explaining how the settings work: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PiElHY1a4ro
If you only care about one of the functions, Inkbird has separate devices for just RH or just temp:
The only drawback for these standalone devices is that the sensor is hardwired and cannot be replaced like the combo unit (replacements sensors are $10-15).
If you really need 4 outlets to control upper and lower limits for both functions, there's a bundle on Amazon with the two standalone devices for about the same price as the combo unit: https://www.amazon.com/Inkbird-ITC-308-Temperature-Controller-Humidity/dp/B01N56KEU6/

Here's the controller I have:
You can change the leeway as well, it defaults to 5% RH.

Also those tents are great and all but your shelves will eventually get real rusty. My suggestion is something like this with plastic shelving. That's just me though
I wish you would have posted a photo or two. By blackened, do you actually mean black in color, or brown and dead-looking? Usually you'll see the sugar leaves turning yellow, and the buds dying and turning a dead brown color, along with a moldy appearance. All affected areas need to be removed.
You should have something like this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01J1E5LWM/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o04_s02?ie=UTF8&psc=1
As well as a digital or mechanical humidity/temp gauge. The electronic ones like the link above need to be calibrated (usually) so they're the same reading as your gauge. Then plug in an exhaust fan to the "high humidity" side of the device, and a cool mist humidifier to the "low humidity" side. Humidity in the outside room that the grow tent/closet/etc is in should be kept lower than the desired humidity in the tent. That way the exhaust fan can pull in dryer air.
No plants, not even your lawn, should be watered at night. Being wet and dark is the perfect breeding ground for molds, mildews, and diseases. Water as early as possible in the morning, after the light is on. Excess water (runoff that comes out of the pot) should be removed (a sponge and bucket if nothing else).
Why try to guess at timing humidity instead of this
Enough light for a 2x2 space, [link]
A terrarium humidifier and a humidistat will take care of automating humidity. [link] Something like that, doesn’t have to be this though, there are lots of brands and styles.
Yes. I'm curing in a wine fridge.
My set up keeps getting more and more complicated: as the weather changes, and as the load in the fridge changes, I keep finding that I have to adjust the way I do things.
I have this Inkbird controller to manage the humidity, this VAVSEA dehumidifier, this Homasy humidifier, I pump air into the fridge using this Pawfly unit, and recently added these tiny AC Infinity fans. I also use a Govee unit to monitor from a distance.
This is what I use in my martha. https://www.amazon.com/Humidity-Controller-Inkbird-Humidistat-Pre-wired/dp/B01J1E5LWM/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=humidity+controller&qid=1617829237&sr=8-3
Okay cool, do I need one of those humidity sensing controllers?
Like this- [link]
just get a space heater and youre set
Black Friday sale on Amazon
You might want to look into one of these if it will fit in your budget. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01J1E5LWM/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
How about one of these
Here is one that does both temp and Humidity.
this is the temp/humidity controller
for LED i have this: [link]
but now would prefer this:[link]
UTH: [link] I got this before I learned about ultratherm heaters. My next tank - which will be around 65 gallons - will have: [link]
