Although I’m no where close to harvesting I’d like have a plan in advance. I’ve googled lots and need some real world advice now.
This will be my first grow. I’m planting 2 purple haze plants outdoors direct sow in cloth 15 gallon planters after germination. Hoping all goes well, I’ll need somewhere to dry flowers. My husband is VERY anti so I really have to keep it all outside and low key because my property is very visible to the road. (This is nonnegotiable.) Also my budget is $0 . I could maybe get away with spending $100 but as close to zero as possible.
This grow is just for me so I can stop buying from sketchy people in town. I know that some aspects of the product will be compromised by not being able to control every aspect of the drying process but I’m working with what I’ve got. It took 6 years of convincing to get this far!
I haven’t received my seeds yet for planting (south Texas, yes I know I’m hella late), and as it’s my first grow I don’t know when I should expect to harvest, therefore I don’t know what kind of weather I’ll be working with around harvest time. Texas plus climate change so you can never really know anyway.
Anyway, I’m looking for the most minimalist flower drying method. Like grandma and grandpa used to do. Anyone here have experience or advice?
