Harvesting

Whats Up Y'all,

••• My thoughts this time around is... If I typically cut the plant down from its main stem and hang upside down in my drying tent (at proper temps & humidity ) for X amount of days it works just like 99% of harvesting tips tell you. BUT... What would be the difference if I just shut the lights off and let the plant dry out in the soil for X amount of days (of course at the proper temps and humidity ) ??? •••


I'm 24hrs dark and 48hrs since last water. Soil is pretty dam dry. In majority of my previous grows I cut now and hang. I usually don't even let the soil get this dry. I typically cut and it's still relatively moist for lack of better words.

What are your thoughts VS. mine ? What is your method ? What do you think the ramifications would be ? Any and all comments are greatly appreciated.

If you wanna see my 4 girls before chop chop have a peek. Picture included. (Blue gelato, Hawaiian kush & Bruce Banner.) #HLG550

My two cents says they continue to grow. Darkness is asking for mold until the plant shuts down. Dry them out and wait till leaf drop before curing whole.

But damp in MI. And these things are stupid amber 3 weeks after top chop and forget. LOL. But over dry and harsh before some TLC. 004.jpg
