    Question Pugs hung for 4 days, day 4 in Bags No smell please help

    My husband is legal in Canada and this is our first crop in the last 5 years. Of course he forgets how to do everything. We took down the plants on the 28th of may and they have been in bags now since then. When I open the bags, there is no skunk smell or anything like there was when they were growing. By the way, we are growing Hawaiin Skunk indoors.

    Is there something we are doing wrong? When I open the bag it smells like a garden or much of nothing really. The twigs do not break off, they bend so I know they are not dry. This is why I told my husband we should take down the branches because I thought they were too crispy, I was wrong wasn't I?

    We had 3 faboulous plants and don't want him to get discouraged so any help would be appreciated please.

    Should I let them out of the bags, lay them on paper bags until they dry more or keep them in these plastic ziplocks or put them in jars? I don't know why there is no smell and I hope to god I haven't ruined anything for him.

    Any response or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    no of course not. we cut those off after we took them down. in the bags is only bud mostly. some twigs are bendable,they do not break off so what should we do? take them out of the bags and put them on paper bags in the room again until they dry out more or what? any suggestions?

    After 4 days hanging and 3 days in ziplocks, should the smell be really potent or is it too early? When they were growing they were really stinky. there is absolutely no mold. The room is ventilated, the humidty is 55%, the temp is 76° and there is a fan going on in the room. I swear when the ziplock bag is opened it doesn't smell like it did when they were growing so I have no idea if they are just not ready or destroyed or what ?!?

    Re: Pugs hung for 4 days, day 4 in Bags No smell please help

    they are in ziplock baggies. 4 large ones.. so either i take them out and put them in a paper bag for a few days or directly to a jar?? how does that work? My husband who is being a pissy pot wants nothing to do with them now so I have to take over. I am not about to lose 3 months of this crap (i am not even a smoker what a wife will do for her husband) lol

    He has a spinal injury so he needs this and he is legal so whatever, i just need to know what to do from here.. again they are in ziplock baggies and if you recommend a jar.. how big and how do i do it? with 4 large ziplocks that's going to be a lot of jars is it not? like the jars you buy pickles in? and how long do i leave them in there? Do i open the jars at all? Sorry for all the questions...

    yes and thanks for welcoming me here, much appreciated

    You got a unmarried sister??!!??

    How do they feel to the touch? damp or crispy?
    as long as they don't have an ammonia smell to them they are fine.

    I think you may want to put them back in paper bags till they feel dry and a bit crisp.
    Then the jars.
    Yes Ma'am, you are gonna need a few jars.

    Glad to help , just wish I could do more.
    This may help too:

    I have no idea what ammonia smells like.. its like a sweet smelling , god i wish this place had a scratch n sniff so you could see what i mean. there is absolutely no mold. we did everything right. i think he is just being too impatient. they are not fully crispy, i can bend them a few different ways without breaking them, they are still sticky too, my hands, gloves etc were all sticky and brown so i know this is good. i just need to dry them more.. how long in paper bags before they go to jars?

    then how long in the jars?
    thx

    Yeah, plain brown bags.

    Shucks!!!

    Tell him to chill,
    stuff happens and it don't sound that bad to me.
    It's still as potent, it just doesn't smell

    i did tell him to chill out its too early.. not even 1 week since we took them down. so the smell will come after they dry? i just need to know how to put them in brown bags and for how long, do i open the bag, fan it. etc.. just a short list then i will go and buy the bags

    thx

    The bud should be dried until the stems snap when bent. I hang dry my buds in a cardboard box that I open daily in order to exchange the air. I'm not too certain on the bag dry but I do know the bags need to be opened and the buds rearranged at least daily. Since the drying buds are touching each other they are prone to bud-rot and need plenty of ventilation.

    How long was the flowering period? Did the plant produce plenty of trichomes before harvest? Did you check to see what color the trichs were, clear, cloudy or amber?

    They should develop a smell as they cure in the jars.

    I'd say another few days(3-6) in the bags
    Just don't stuff the bags full.
    You don't have to open them , store in a dark cool place.
    move the buds in the bag around every other day so they dry evenly.
