Hey guys any tips on trimming drying and curing like supplies and techniques?
Where do you hang them and in what conditions
I use disposable vinyl gloves and when I harvest a plant I start by cutting the branches off 1 by 1. I take the branch and first strip off all the fan leaves. I then use a pair of Fiskars Micro Tip Pruning scissors and trim all the sugar leaves flush with the bud. I then take the trimmed branches and place them in my drying rack to dry for 5-7 days or until the buds just break off the stems. I then trim off the buds from the stems and place the buds into storage containers. I take the buds out of the storage containers and place into a large bowl for 10 minutes per day for 10 days.

My drying rack




Fiskars Softouch Micro-Tip Pruning Snip recommended by the arthritis society, They come with a lifetime replacement warranty. One of the handles broke on my last pair, I used the warranty claim on the website and Fiskars replaced them at no cost.

doesn't washing the bud ruin it or at least reduce it's potency?
It hasn't in my experience. The buds taste amazing too!

Check this out. 420 Magazine ® It's a thread explaining how and why someone might wash the buds. Makes sense to me, and seems like a good practice.

Two ?s. 1. Can I cut off the fan leaves while it's still up and 2. If I cut down the humidity will it force the plants to take up all the water faster?
