For my first harvest next weekend, I was wondering what you use to lay your buds down on that the trikes won't stick to? I have seen wax paper, saran wrap, tin foil, garbage bag, towel, plastic lid from container, glass or mirror, and cardboard. I read a message someplace that said the tricomes won't stick much to something, but forgot what that was? What do you use, any why?

Thanks in advance!!
 
Most of us hang dry our grows. I would probably use big cardboard boxes if drying like that. The trichs are most susceptible to falling off after drying when handling or bumped against anything. :cool:
I mean while you are trimming, what surface do you set them on. I will hang them too, just curious is there is a 'great surface' to set them on while trimming?

I fan trim and hang- then trim and hang- then final trim (if needed) and remove from stem and set on large screens- then when they have reached the right dryness I jar them leaving openish, lid just sitting on, check then if ready close and store. Check a few days later and burp- if it’s good it doesn’t get checked again for a week if it isn’t perfect it gets left open a day and then back in. I use these principles and It’s still good stuff a year later. Currently enjoying last seasons outdoor that people swear was fresh. To each their own, I also use card board boxes for odds and ends. Don’t rush it and don’t jar it wet and life is good.

Trim on or trim over?

Over but the trimmed buds lay on the screen and I sometimes rest the branch I’m trimming on it.

I gently roll the buds and push the close trim around to catch loose trichs before weighing and jarring.

I cure my bud leaf trim along side the flower buds in jars for edibles too.

I usually cut each branch, trim and hang individually. However, if I do need to cut all the branches and then trim, I just use a clean cardboard box to hold the branches. I trim over a clean plastic drip saucer for a 10 gallon pot. Works almost as good as a “Trim Bin” for a whole lot less.

I still want a Trim Bin though.
