    Well been a week or so but been trimming and drying . I cut small outside branches on the 3rd and cut and hung on the 8th so doing a little trimming now . I don't trim as high and tight as most people my hands get shakey .

      hey ATU I usually leave them on to dry because they are so sticky when green then trim after a few days dry time . Still a bit wet but when I leave all that on it takes a lot longer to dry too. But most of the buds are medium heavy not rock hard buds but they might tighten a little . And saving all trim for dry ice I even have a jar from my plant last grow almost a year back now so will add that to the dry ice hash stash .

      Also I should leave them to hang in the grow room but I keep large boxes that are new and clean and poke holes in the top. Of the long end and hang them seems to slow the cure and dry down also helps it dry , I think . I leave one side totally open and the fans in the room keep fresh air circulation around . But no mold at 45%-55% humidity in that room and 75*-77* temp so it does slow it down . I was trimming in front of the TV and my sis walks in and almost got knocked over from the aroma . They say smell but I like the "aroma"

      I think I need to try your method on my upcoming harvest. I look at the ww and the c99, and they are so covered with triches that I just cant see cutting the leaves. AND I like the idea of slowing the dry down, too.

    And later I will set up my little micro camera up and get trich pics . I don't use a scale so will just have a rough idea by jar fills . But airy buds don't weigh as much as nice dense bugs .

        Wow! That's a great drying box idea!

      Great idea MedMan. I bought a UHaul wardrobe box a couple of years ago because I usually dry in my tent but I had a harvest I thought would have staggered finish times. Turned out they all were ready at the same time so I never used it. I like your regular decent size box better than the wardrobe box I bought. It was enormous and just awkward to move around. It's completely filled by my girlfriends quilting fabric now so I'll be looking for boxes like yours this round. I have three strains and the AK-48 is supposed to be a fast finisher.

        Great idea Sheesh I've seen those and a lot bigger than the one I have actually its bigger than my grow room .And the way I have the long colas hanging they shrink and slip out of the hole so I keep a pen or pull them up and bend them over to hold them but with the wardrobe box it has a few metal rails I could tie lines across and hang with clips. . Thanks

      Just finished trimming all colas and got them jarred . I don't have a scale but ended up with 4 full quart jars of buds and 3 full of keef for dry ice hash . might have a little from the keef to add to joints or vape . Oh and I didn't read Nebula's email about a perpetual grow but I shut off everything but the fans in the grow room and had left a few little popcorns on there and opened the door today and it has started growing again so I need to look at her weekly email and read it ..
      If I can I will get a few pics up . It looks pretty sad but can't believe the growth on it still .

        Congrats on getting it all jarred; I'm just about a week ahead of you in the curing process. Have fun making hash!!! I love doing that.

      Put all out on a lunch tray to dry a little and re jar to make sure no mold starts so got a few pics . Also has a sweet smell. Like a little cinnamon cookie or something now that the green grass smell is growing away . Only thing I can think of is it might be girl scout cookie strain or some type like that . But it was bag seed so I'll never know

      Thanks ATU and Aloner . Going to give her a try in a few days when I have a week cure and a little dryer . Smells great now that the fresh cut grass smell is going away .
      Can't wait to try her

        I know ATU its tough but having Dr appts and nurses in a lot this week for next vaca at hospitaa I'm slowing down a little also with all the seeds the more I let it dry out when I shake the jars more seeds pop out . I think that's why the buds didn't tighten up nice ..They are a little spongy even the large ones . Still not sure why it was full of seeds . But I will have plenty of emergency seeds . But will definatly give smoke report . It smells amazing.

        MedMan you must have had some kind of light leak during the dark period for flowering? (I don't remember if we discussed that possibility before.) Stay chill dealing w/ all the docs, nurses, etc.!!!!!
