GDP indoor grow. Outdoor grower friend recommended pulling roots, removing fan leaves & hanging entire plant to dry. Ideas & suggestions appreciated.
I cut the flowers off leaving a little stem to slow down drying a little. I’ll do a rough trim and put them away for drying. I’ll then put the flowers on a sweater dryer in a climate controlled room for drying.
You will find a wide variation in how different people harvest their plants. I know a few growers who hang the whole plant upside down to dry.
This is what my flowers looked like when they are prepped for drying.
I live in a low humidity area except for dead summer I cut whole plant removing fan leaves and big sugar leaves that’s the only way for me to slow drying so I don’t get hey after about 7-8 days then paper bags for 4 to 5 days when bag gets to 62% then I jar and cure the important thing is. Slow not to fast I chop just before lights on I don’t think rootball removal is necessary the dry is all about moisture content and getting it evenly dry so good luck and enjoy
Leave the leaves on to slow the drying not remove.
If you do that you can’t effectively wash your bud. You should be washing your bud.
I chop, trim everything off, peroxide wash, rinse and then dry. That way I’m confident I have done my best to clean those ladies up
I chop, trim, hang to dry, then jar and cure. That’s what works for me, but may not be what you find to work for you. Like @MidwestGuy stated, many different preferences on the process.
