    Hey guys I need a little refresher I use to hang my whole buds in a cardboard box till they where dried then trim them up & put them in gallon jars which in would open & let them breathe .Not sure how you guys are doing it now days looks like some are trimming the buds up then drying. So give me a heads up on the best way .-Bud

    I find trimming when wet lots easier than trying to peel off the dried leaves.

    Same here. I trim them up , dry them and then it is into the jars.

    I have seen those. I think Mr GJ uses a wire screen with a fan blowing from underneath. As long as they are getting some air circulation, good to go.

    I like to trim the buds while the leaves are still wet then I keep the buds in a paper bag, rotating them daily within the bag, until they are just right to go into jars. Then it's all about burping the jars and making sure the moisture content is good for a month or so. Then I leave them alone to cure for another month.

    3E8A8605-B56A-4106-8A21-AD56932D9210.jpeg I prefer to trim them wet right off the plant. Then toss the buds on a drying rack for a few days before jaring and burping begins.
    There’s a sheet of plastic in the lowest bin for trim that also catches trichs that drop from the buds as they’re moved about in the upper racks.

    The hanging dryer is the shit. Lotta bud in a little space. Put a piece of plastic underneath and you can capture any kief that dusts down.:bongdude:
