Dry trim 100% for me. Whole limb sections. I drop humidity down to 45% initially then slowly raise it. The leaves protect the buds and preserve terps IME over wet trim. Nice slow dry and cure all-in-one while hanging for 1- 2 months, then into plastic storage bins then 5 gallon buckets with 62% humidity packs is my go-to method now.Wet vs Dry Trim
So far away and long ago, I was kinda hippy, and I used to pull the whole plant, root and all, and hang it.
In my new house, i had to deal with damp basement and dry attic. Leaving the leaves on to help a slow cure is a technique i learned. However, the dry trim is so tedious, especially in bulk (ish, i think we all have different ideas of bulk) so there's 2 different methods, one is a rough wet trim, and one is a little more intricate.
And with the newer practices, ie., bud washing, wet trim is the way to go. If you have only a few plants, a dry trim can give you some extra leaf to give away, make butter, etc.
Blessings be, all my RIU friends.
I am in agreement and have used this exact paradigm. I prefer the long slow dry on the larger colas. But some are sticky enough the leaf doesn't have much effect. I also prefer the 62 packets. It can lead to some chemy bud. I gave some of last years to a friend who asked if it wasn't fully cured yet. Lol, said no that's like 10 months ago. Having a humidity temp gauge is super important if you dont wanna end up with hay, mold, or ammonia stink that signals still not done.]

Ok, I'm flummoxed. How does one burp sunlight? And they say IM high.
Just spreading them out in full sun for a couple minutes while i look them over for brown spots, i see it better in full sun and mold spores die in sunlight. Theres a lot written about the effect of sunlight on mold. Just ‘sparamenting.Ok, I'm flummoxed. How does one burp sunlight? And they say IM high.
Throw butterfly netting bet over that chicken wire and caterpillars will be a thing of the past I bet BT or no BT. YOUR setup is what I want to shoot for.This is my semi enclosed greenhouse setup. I haven’t had to worry about rain and the wide open ends allow plenty of air flow. 1st year growing outdoors so have no control to compare to but so far have only lost 3 buds to bud rot. And minimal caterpillar activity with generous applications of BT and Dr Zymes. View attachment 4999706
i did that, not by design…just out of dumb luck and have had no issues on this my first outdoor grow.I said this past year but next year I’m downsizing a ton. All small pots, starting late, netting completely from the air and transferring to the garage when it rains
