A question from a fellow grower:
Thank you for all of the info and the awesome grow bible. It’s helped me greatly so far into my first grow. First ever growing anything I might add. I think everything is Godwin very well so far. I am into the beginning of week 6 of flower of my banana sour diesel seeds my friend gave me. Since this is a sativa dominant strain, I did run into a height problem early in my flowering, but tying down branches, and unfortunately cutting one of my mains that got burnt, everything is budding nicely, and from what I can tell is looking great.
I am most interested in information regarding curing and harvesting once they are in their prime. I am planning on pulling them once they’re ready, but I am a little fuzzy on what to do with them once I pull them. First thing once I pull the plants, I will take the remaining leaves off all branches, though there aren’t a ton left. A family member who has more experience than I do instructed me to take off most of the leaves about a week ago, this was against my better judgement, but so far they seem to still be doing good.
Should I leave the plant intact for awhile before clipping branches to hang to dry, or should I take branches off immediately. Once I’m at the stage of drying clipped branches full of buds, would it be beneficial to put an electric heater in the grow tent to aid in drying.
