Time for a nap!
This is the critical locktite, indica , partial harvest. The standing bud is the Malawi. She'll be some time before harvestRight before dry trim.
I like big buds and I can not lie..........
They really really get me high........
After I trim, they get a little slim, but I really don't care cause they're stuck on my chin, and hands......
Sort of a squeeze approach and snapping the smaller stems off of the main branch. Just ordered those hygrometer, like 12 of them. I want to vacuum seal them for storage but want the ideal humidity.What do you have to clue you in on the humidity of the bud? Or they may not be as dry as you think. Or they may be drier than you think. It’s hard to know what’s going on inside of that bud. I use those mini hygrometers. Not the greatest, but will get you in the ballpark. I I will take a representative sample and put it in a jar with a hygrometer or two and give that time to give me a stable reading. If it’s too high, they stay on the line. and it’s better to start when they might be too high and work your way down. It’s harder to get them to dry and work your way back up. There’s other ways but I haven’t tried them.
What do you look for %wise with the jarred up sample buds. I just checked. 2 jars 57%. Other ones are pretty lowI can only control the temperature not the humidity. I keep plenty of little jars around. And plenty of those little hygrometers. When I think they’re getting close hanging, I will take representative samples off of the hanging branch and throw them in a jar with a hygrometer and see what it says in about 12 hours. Sometimes they feel dry but kind of rehydrate once they are close up in a jar. I have a lot of 1 pound grove bags also. So I will cut the branches so that they will fit inside the bag and load it up with hygrometers and see where the humidity goes. if it’s too high, I pull them out and rehang them. It’s just kind of a system you have to figure out I like to dry trim and I like to leave buds on the branches to trim them. Just seems easier to handle. Oh yeah, a little poorer with every meeting! but you will get all that back, and then some! And some peace and quiet! And maybe even a little piece of mind! Lol!
I want to try and keep them up around 62 to 64 before I feel comfortable putting them away for a cure! I use the bags and I put a hygrometer or two in each one. And for the first month, I check on them pretty often to make sure I haven’t screwed up and put them away too wet. I think 62 is actually too wet to smoke. 57 is getting down towards smoking humidity. But I wouldn’t want to put them away much lower than 54 or 55. Or any higher than 64. That cola I started talking about it before I screwed it up up top. I put it in a jar with a couple of hygrometers and they went from 41 up to 55. 24 hours later it was up to 67. So you have to give it quite a while to stabilize.What do you look for %wise with the jarred up sample buds. I just checked. 2 jars 57%. Other ones are pretty low
