Hey @Gilly I harvest each branch, remove the flower
from it. The main cola, depending on size, I leave intact. Usually because it’s so dense, I just don’t want to attempt to take it apart.
I harvest the whole plant all at once.
Others hang the whole plant as SlowOldGuy mentioned, and if done this way, you’ll have to dry trim.
I prefer to wet trim, because as the flower shrinks from moisture loss, the leaves that are trimmed, also shrink past where I cut them, revealing mostly flowers. Makes for a better appearance. Sure not many people will see my flowers, but I like to take that extra pride of what I grew.
Side note, I also use the George Cervantes method, and give them a hydrogen peroxide bath. Removes dust, debris, and various molds.
