P59, Warfox, Poco, bc, NewEnglandfarmer, Michi, Boatguy, all my homies, the ones I forgot or just keep secret, you're all awesome.
Thank you for the inspiration, the ear lending when I boo-hoo, the laughs when we share a discovery or something stupid.
Wouldn't be the same without this crew, if I hit a few million, I'd def drag us all to a great party, some hotel that wed have to convince not to call the fire department, the smokes under control. :clap::clap::clap:
Want to thank you all for another fabulous year, peace be upon you and your family, may your medicine grow majestically, your harvest and season be trouble free, and I hope to see you all next year.
Not that I'm leaving forever, but, hey, its deer season.
:peace:PVOG

ok guys. so my dumb ass never anticipated having to dry so much weed. normally i grow one or two in my little tent then dry it in there.

i think im gonna have to brown bag it this time. never dried this way. am i running the risk of mold while drying? i split the 13 ounces of undried into two brown paper shopping bags. plan to shake them up a bit a couple times a day. trimming another plant tomorrow. the other two i may try hold off a week, idk.

any advice?
Well I for one can sympathize, being my 1st year outdoors and watching the ladies grow in stature, I kind of anticipated the issue. Your really a product of your environment. So no one can really tell you whats right in your environment. I personally hang in my cellar with landscape twine, but I ain’t never had to hang this much and trim so much in a tight window of time in any other relative indoor grow. So you just got to go with adjusting your space to get it done, otherwise as Pioneer so eloquently stated… “good luck”! I typically hang by branch on twine, not whole plant as I mainline to 8 and just cut the branch. Maybe try stringing lines 2 rows on top of one another, takes a little less space. I definitely had to improvise to fit. Timing of the ladies take downs also factored into the space considerations too. Stay the course and get creative! ;)

btw… stay away from brown bagging anything till it’s almost dry… you’ll mold them if there to wet to early in the paper bag. You want to hang them as the easiest option but using a window screen that you maybe have an a/c in place and turning them consistently will work too... but I‘m not a fan of wet weed in a paper bag. :(

I’d pop a couple window screens and spread them out on them to dry. They will mold in a paper bag.

It's far from ideal but I dry using a dehumidifier in a tent in hanging mesh bags, basically untrimmed branches (I might pull off leaves that seem like they're ready to go anyway). Even after three days in there I still left paper bags open in the tent when I needed to move flower out of the mesh to make room for stuff that needed to come in.

Starting to see mold on some plants that had been mold free up until now (we had rain last night). I have thrown away so many big buds this season it's just another day in the garden, 2021 style. Humbled by the experience, thankful for whatever comes of it.

emptied out this 3 level kitchen cart and spread the buds out on it. only needed two levels. can fill the other level after trimming tomorrow. then put the rest on a screen laid up top. i stuck it in the tent with the air circulating. the other two plants will get chopped next weekend and allow these to dry.

Veg and snap. Once your vegged, squeeze the branch below each shoot till it pops. Try it with one plant, you'll see. Freaky cool.

Is that like supercropping? If they don’t pop will just a deep squeeze do the trick? Am I squeezing the main stem right below the nodes?

Thanks man, and everyone else as well! Another season down in the books.

Here’s a fat branch of Blueberry nice and plumped out:202E83A5-A76D-43BC-AF5B-288C4FB610B0.jpeg

Ya, I use the brown bags briefly to suck out the last of the moisture, sometimes, and I expound, sometimes.

Sitting in my stand looking at pics. Wish I knew for sure this was wedding cake like my friend said it was. I had three of them, and they were the Three D's: Dank, Dense, and Delicious.
The think I liked most about them, was instead of a branch just growing from stalk with a cola, the branches <mostly> split and branched into 3 cola tops per branch. And was kind of, and i say that slinkily, resistant to rot .
On another tip, I'm beginning to wonder if my late planting [June, argghh] had something to do with the rot. As the plant is younger, stronger and more vibrant. I've spoke to some that say rot comes when it comes. I'm cautiously optimistic.
Will experiment next year.
Well, better get back to it. Think i just heard a ten point squirrell not far ...
