I also have a link in my sig about holding your plants over in darkness before harvest. Might be interested if you like more trics.

Don’t be too aggressive and don’t let the bud knock the bottom or the sides of the bucket.

Bucket #1- Tap (warm) + 1 32oz bottle of 3% H202. If you have PM use 2:3 ratio.
Agitate and hold for a few seconds, pull up and let drip some... repeat twice.

Bucket #2- Bubble Stone + Tap (room temp) + 1 cup Real lemon juice + 1 cup baking soda. Agitate for a few seconds in the bubbles, then lift, repeat twice.

Bucket #3 and #4- Spring (cooler)
Agitate slowly for a few seconds, lift, repeat twice.
I spend the most time in #4.
I spin the bud, agitate slowly, and make sure the entire stem is submerged.

Ideally you want them to hang for 5-7 days, or when the average size branch snaps, but doesn’t break when you bend it.

I started putting the buds in oven bags to burp, because burping 15 jars twice a days sucks. When they get to 62%, I jar them with Boveda 62 and a small hydrometer. Depending on how they feel, I might keep burping once a day for another week or so

IntheShed says:

I burp twice a day for a week and then once a day for a week. This is after hanging for as close to a week as I can get given the ambient RH. If I have to jar them earlier, then the twice a day burping gets extended.

So basically I'm not sealing them up until three weeks after chop day.

Burping serves a couple of purposes. First is that it steadily lowers the humidity in the buds down where we want it (some folks like 62, some like 58). At the same time, you are airing out the jars during the start of the cure so there will be fresh oxygen in there for the bacteria that are munching down the chlorophyll. They're not anaerobic so they need oxygen.

If you had a room that was always 62% RH with cool temps, you could hang your buds in there forever. But since hardly anyone does, we burp down to 62% and jar when the bulk of the chlorophyll is gone.

Bovedas are for long term storage, so don't add them to the jars until the jars are already in the low 60s and you're ready to seal them up. They're an insurance policy.

What is PM 2:3 ratio? Also, the buds look great after you do this! What is the value of it? I would like to do this come harvest time.

Today is my first harvest and this is exactly what I'm going with. Thank you for the great post!
