I’m certainly fascinated and a lot more knowledgeable on how to grow cockleburrs. I think this is a lot homebrewing and I did beer 2 seperate times in my life and neither one was worth drinking. Let’s home this thing is smokable. LOL
I have an old coat rack on rollers with a wire mesh hat shelf. I plan on having it in an open, undisturbed area around 66 degrees. A dehumidifier, if necessary, but cmon, it’s winter.
I’ve heard of a scissor scrubber on Amazon. Are they worth it? Don’t know how sticky my bud will be. Scissors or snips? Bags or jars? Special techniques?
about 1/2 to 3/4 of a white widow auto, the buds were LARF so I bought a HLG 650 spider to fix that. Don’t scrape off the sissors and eat it, then go to town. You’ll wonder why you went to town when you get there!
on the grow I did, I used 2 MH 1000’s, no tent, used a GH hydrofarm instead of soil. It was my first grow. I harvested too early, something that will come with experiance. I read your grow journal & learned a few things like your as crazy as me.
For those of us in parts of the world that still air dry their clothes we use a clothes drying rack . Rubbing alcohol for scissors or a razor blade. I prefer jars but only after they’ve been hanging until dry. Fill jar 3/4 way up place somewhere darkish to release extra chrlophill (sp). Open jars once a day to burp. Longer the cure the better the smoke, but most of our stash never makes it to a full cure because well… we wanna get high.
I am on my first grow and harvested two days ago. Amnesia Haze auto flower in soil. I may have harvested a bit early but I was seeing amber trichomes and got excited! Also, I was hoping to avoid “couch lock.” I am using my grow tent to dry. I hung the stems to coat hangers using pipe cleaners; could have just used clothes pins. Keeping the RH between 35-45% with a dehumidifier. Trying to keep the temps at 60-65 degrees. My main concern is not drying “too fast” because it doesn’t allow for nutrients, chlorophyll, and whatever to wick out properly. I am a bit anxious; want this thing to turn out correctly! I used clean scissors to cut stems and trim the fan leaves. I’d suggest using jars for curing. It has been reported that plastic has a negative impact on weed during cure. “Special techniques” … prayer, fingers crossed, etc.
I’ve been using the trimmer scrubber last couple harvests and for less than $10, it was nice to have. I kept one trimmer in it and swapped trimmers as they got sticky. Sucks to clean so I just throw it out and buy a new one for each harvest. Very quick and good cleaning.
@Hellraiser have you ever put multiple stains in a single cvault for curing? I’ve got blue dream, Cali dream, Skywalker og, and black eyed Katy about 2 weeks from harvest (my first). I’m looking at a 21 liter cvault as the 4 ladies are large, my 4x4x8 gorilla grow tent is filled, buds look huge to me, but I’m a newbie and their my buds lol. I’d rather not buy 4 different cvaults, but being a newbie, I really want to taste the difference in my strains. I’ve read about people using nylon netting bags to keep strains separated, but since we have similar set ups and ive learned so much from your posts, I always wonder what you’d think. Going with the hangers and binder clips, may set up a hanger for the hangers using a 3.75 inch hollow pvc and some rope - hook the rope on 2 sides of the frame and should hang flat and even to prevent sagging - don’t think the 2 poles I hang the hlgs from will be enough… trying to figure out the logistics of cutting them down, moving them out of the tent, cutting the main trucks from the topping, and get them hung up on the binder clips back I side the tent after I take the hlgs out for temp storage. Don’t want to cut the trunk and just lay it on the floor, but want to cut all 4 ladies within a couple of mkns of opening the tent - about to just use the frame from a small 2x2x4 tent I have - 1 lady on each of the 4 sides. Anyways, thoughts on the cvault would be much appreciated!
