Going to add gloves after washing those hands too! I will throw them in the dishwasher tonight just to be safe and sterile!I use the plastic lids no problemo - wash buds wash jars in the dishwasher and wash my hands specially before and after touching plants or flowers.
After washing I hung for a few hours with a fan blowing on them.No good on direct sun as Senior said, you want a dim to dark room but keep in mind that dark is where mold grows easiest. Keep fan blowing nearby but not on your crop - it will dry too fast
I found one last night for the first time about long as my finger nail. I’m going to start looking everyday. I have a black light but found it just by going with my instincts.Keep looking Maybe you will find the little bastard... They blend right in with the buds and leaves. I keep seeing the caterpillar poop on my veggie garden but have a hell of a time finding them...
They must not be canning jars since I doubt that plastic lids will handle being in boiling water or in a pressure cooker for long. I have seen plastic lids made by Ball and Kerr brands but sold separately from the jars. Will have to take a look next time I am at the big time supermarket.I ordered some jars today to cure the harvest soon to come but they have plastic lids
They are 1g sized so not to sure if i should keep uhm or send them back? Use some thread seal tape?
Nice looking layout in the fridge. That and all the jars lined up.After washing I hung for a few hours with a fan blowing on them.
Did a rough trim , weighed , and bagged up in paper sacks into the fridge.
<cut to ease up the bandwidth...
I started w/ some cheap hydrometers . I had a half dozen. Set them on a table , side by side , for a couple hours. Temps and RH readings varied a bunch.
I did check on weight after dry as I start the cure.Nice looking layout in the fridge. That and all the jars lined up.
I see that you trimmed and did a wet weight before bagging up.
Do you do a dry weight after to compare the difference. Sometimes I do a wet weight and then weigh the buds after they have dried and before I put them into the jars.
