You have to decide for yourself. This is a matter of personal choice. Try it both ways.

I’ve cured a number of plants, only got mold one time and that was because the room they were drying in was my laundry room and when I had to go away for a couple of weeks, the dryer pulled away from the wall and the vent tube got disconnected. I put an AC unit in the room now and have my little mini dry bucket going. (I made a small dry chamber out of two sterlite plastic bins and a couple of compute fans. Seem to work pretty good for small stuff, which is all I do any more.

The part about keeping the leaves on or taking them off. I really don’t think it adds that much to the potency if you leave the big fan leaves on, but I never trim the leaves that are “stuck inside” the buds. It’s too much like work and they fall off anyway when I pick the budlets off and put them into my jars.

However, I have been wrong before, I’ll bet somebody here knows the answer for sure.

If you keep air circulating; you will not get mold
