    I personally prefer to hang my plants and let them dry before I start the trim and then do a manicure and then into jars for curing I used to wet trim but don't do that anymore and haven't for a while dry trim is best in my opinion

    HARVEST AND POST-HARVEST PROCESSING (PART 3) CURING From Home-Grown Cannabis Academy CONTENTS 1) INTRODUCTION So you’ve finally harvested your plant. You think the process to make your own top quality Cannabis has finished. Well… think again. We’re here to inform you that you are just about halfway there. After you have correctly harvested and dried your crop, the real work begins to obtain the highest quality of your harvest: the curing process. The most important post-production step is the curing process. If you’ve never heard of ‘curing’, you are not alone. Maybe you know the process under another name: ripening. Just like a ‘Chateau’ leaves its wines to ripen in barrels or a Scottish distillery ages its Whiskey, you’ll have to cure your harvest. The Cannabis inflorescences need time to reach their full potential. WHAT IS CURING? We cure Cannabis to obtain and preserve the best aroma and taste possible and to make sure the bitter tasting chlorophyll (green color) is broken down. This makes the Cannabis very smooth, tasty and ready for consumption through inhalation. As soon as the inflorescences are harvested, the curing process begins. For the first couple of weeks, the Cannabis inflorescences will be drying and curing simultaneously. When the harvest is almost fully dry, the relative humidity of the air surrounding the flowers has to be slowly brought down to a specific level. This will allow further curing without the risk of molds infecting the inflorescences during storage or your harvest becoming too dry. When an inflorescence is fully dried without being properly cured, the bitter chlorophyll is ‘locked’ inside the cells and cannot be broken down further. This will give the inflorescence a bitter taste that is very hard and near impossible to get rid of. The specific level of humidity is different for each strain but will generally be somewhere between 55 and 65%. Most strains are cured with a relative humidity of 62-65% to bring out the best aroma’s and retain the best structure of the inflorescence. There are many ways you can cure your harvest. Each strain has a specific method which will bring out the best aromas. Some strains are fairly easy to cure, but other strains can really lose their magic if you choose the wrong method or cure for too long. It is very important to remember that curing is a strain-specific process and is dependent on the configuration and presence of the,....................

    Organic grow with super soil

    This is an example of why not to buy strains from strangers. A guy off Craigslist advertised multiple strains. I asked if he had the fucking incredible strain. He said he did, but turns out he lied. Still smells good but it’s a good 3 weeks behind all the others so I’m guessing it’s a sativa heavy breed.

    I think we should pin this to the top. Can other members explain how they cure their marijuana?

    Bud worms

    Even down here in oz we have the dreaded white cabbage butterfly, they lay their almost invisible eggs and the grub will eat out all the growing shoots of a plant, leaving it alive but useless. Constant vigilance is needed...IF you see one of these ba$!@rds it's most probably too late and you have an egg on your plant ready to hatch. There are sprays and treatments for them, and for the most part they work. ONE thing to note though, is they are generally pretty territorial, so some ppl use [and I have too with some success] a scarecrow-butterfly cut from white plastic and sited near each plant. Read the above link and you will find you can ID the age of the larvae by its size and colour. I find an old squash racket great to swat the butterfly's as they fly. muA
