I’m beyond new here and as an old hippie need some schooling.
When you harvest, you can WET trim or Dry trim. Wet trim - cutting of the fan leaves and some sugar leaves while the plant is still fresh / just chopped. Dry trim - hanging your plant till dry and then trimming the excess leaves so you have only bud left
Watering - water dry to wet - means wait until the plants substrate is dry and then water till wet…usually a 10% runoff
What I’ve been doing is sort of doing both. I trim alot of the big fan leaves throughout flowering to allow the plants to put more energy towards the buds. When I harvest, I trim most of the leaves, but leave some of the smaller leaves to allow a slower drying process. I think it makes it smoother smoke. Then trim smaller leaves off when dry.
Thank you man. I’m needing this and appreciate your kindness.
The slower the dry, the better the weed. The longer the cure *2 months) the better the smoke
I do the same thing @Highwayman. When it’s harvest time, I usually have only sugar leaves and very few fan leaves - these get cut off throughout the growing process.
