My final harvest for a while and its going to be a lot. My crop I did a wet trim. Major time consuming harvest but when it was done drying, getting the cure process started was super easy. It had the best flavor as well. Second harvest I did a dry trim. I trimmed the big leaves off but left everything else on and used a silicone bbq brush when it was dry to break off and trim the buds. Had a nicer look but not as nice a flavor. Aesthetics were better on the dry trim.

It could literally take me almost a week to harvest if I wet trim this batch of 4 plants.

I personally dry trim. I guess it's about preference but I know some people are from more humid parts of the world so they wet trim, opposed to people living in more dry areas where it Is a better idea to leave the plant be and let it dry with all the leaves and what not.

I prefer a dry trim, too. My crop dries at a "just right" pace and trimming is easier, IMO.

Whatever works best for your situation is what you should do. I am not aware of any reason the buds are better using one method over the other.

Dry trim produces a marginally superior product if dried properly and slowly. According to the LP owners I know that tested the difference.
For personal use I don't even trim anymore, I just pull the fan leaves off and leave the sugar leaves intact. Who cares about a little sugar trim.. just nip it off before you roll a J or whatever. That's my philosophy now.

Agree. You gotta do what works for your own situation. I have a dehumidifier now so hopefully I won't ever be forced to wet trim again. lol
