    ^ things do sound just fine. It's kinda odd that the smell passed after your harvested. As long as you dry them so the stems snap and give a good cure you should have some awesome nugget! I can't wait to see these pics.

    i still don't know how to use my new camera in macro mode or i would be able to get a super closeup. i have done as you suggested put them in 2 brown bags into their room where its air controlled. so you say i don't open the bags daily or i do to move the weed around and for 6 days or so then to jars???

    Looks Lovely.

    Nah, don't open them other than to check that they are drying evenly.

    6 days or there abouts, when ever they start to feel crisp and/or the stems snap.

    I'd move them around at least once in the middle of the 5 or 6 days to make sure that any covered buds get to the air to dry too. You should remove as much stem material as well. They will only help the buds hold moisture in. Once the stem under the smaller buds start to crack when bent place them into jars for a cure. Open the jars a couple times a day until all the buds are dry and a joint rolled with them stays lit. If you get things too dry lettuce makes a great rehydrator. A paper towel with water on it will do the same. Just place them into a jar with the bud for a hour or two and the moisture is transfered to the buds.
    Tell your husband that before he throws anything out check with me. Even if it is crap (which I doubt it is)...one could make some hash out of it and still get something useful to smoke or vaporize.

    I took care of these plants I think more than he did. I made sure the hudmity tanks were filled, I prepared the solution for feeding. All he did was water them, lol

    they were my babies.. can someone just explain to me why they do not smell like skunk now that they are cut down? they are all in paper bags. I will make sure they are dry this time but still have no idea about the jars.

    a) how much do you put in the jars?
    b) how long do you leave them in the jars?
    c) do you open the jars daily, or more than once a day?

    I won't them him throw it all out. There is 4 large baggies, I mean a lot. No way will I allow him too.

    We want to start our next crop it will be White Widow & White Queen. Hopefully we will end up with more than just 3 plants. Legally, he's allowed 25 plants at any grow cycle. WOOOO HOOOOO !!! wish us luck

    once the bud is dry you fill the jar with bud. you will open it once a week for a few seconds just to let the gases escape. you will have them in jars for atleast 14 days but i recamend going 30 days. this is called the cure. by the time you are done your buds should be these beutiful golden nuggets.

    Why should it smell like skunk? Are you growing Skunk or an unknown strain. Cannabis has many, many aromas, the skunk odour being one of them. I have had buds that smell like fruit, citrus,aniseed etc.
    This may haelp you re drying. http://www.420magazine.com/forums/ha...-tutorial.html.

    Some aromas are stronger than others. I would not fret. Once the buds are dried and cured, you may notice a 'skunk' aroma when you break up the bud to smoke. Either that, or the bud may have been picked too early.

    picked to early? you mean i didn't allow it to dry long enough?

    The leaves were turning yellow and falling off. It flowered for 10 weeks which is what the strain called for. Its Hawaiian skunk.

    I will continue to monitor this site and let you know what transpires. Thanks very much for all your help and suggestions
