How you all taking your weights, wet or dry?
I’ll do mine at the start to get a rough idea and then figure on 20-25 % of that for my dry.
Edit. Just gives me a target to shoot for.
I specify whether it is wet or dry weight when I report harvest. I think most use dry because wet buds are still not smokeable.
Thats the way it’s going to have to be because I didn’t way at harvest today. Weight felt good though!
Always dry weight for me.
Always dry. Wet is meaningless.
Only check dried weight. No need risking losing trichomes and what not when you will be lucky to get 25% dried.
My first grow I weighed wet and again when dry. It was between 20% - 25% of the wet weight.
I use both especially if it’s the same strain or trying to figure out if New line of nutrients is worth it or not
Dried and cured smokable buds for me.
Back to the snow yet? @kellydans
Yes, @SeaSeaside_guy1 got home late last night, pretty good change from t-shirt short pants to a coat. Put my seeds in a cup of water before I went to bed.
I’m already sick of snow, and it’s only December 1st.
I dont weigh it, just smoke what I want to and gift the rest.
@Drinkslinger I’m with you I hate snow. We had the Weatherman say we are expecting 6” of snow in 3 days. He missed the mark by a little bit. A storm that dropped over 90”. We had so much snow that year they was still skiing in July and we had a 10’ pile of snow in our back yard till July.
He lost his job after that blunder.
saw this post and had a question i just got done drying a batch of lowrider atuo and it taste good and all but a bud that should be 3 grams is like 1.5 its crazy. any ideas
@jimmybud The buds will lose on average 75 to 80% due to the water evaporating out of the buds.
I liked my wet weight better, but still didn’t do bad
Could be from light not big enough for space or chop too early. Temps also play a role in overall yield. The last 3 weeks of flower is when plants put on the most weight / thickness.
Hope this helps a bit @jimmybud.
I saw your pics in ur other thread and they didn’t quite look ready to harvest.
