Harvesting And Curing
I want to pick individual buds early in the
The Grow Room forums; Maybe one bud is ripening a little faster than the rest? I don't know, that just seems logical.

Maybe one bud is ripening a little faster than the rest? I don't know, that just seems logical.
If I were you, I'd ask your question in an independent thread to get more responses that actually have something to do with your question
big bud did u say hydro has chemicals in it, this is my first grow almost ready 2 harvest and i have 2 hydro plants in a lighted growing chamber and was not aware that my plants have chemicals in it
question? i have some buds that matured a lil earlier than the rest and i have them dryed out already stems snap nicely can i cure them in a plastic jar?? or does it have 2 b a glass jar?? or better off in sealed paper bags or open?? how often do i open the jar and 4 how long?? this is my first grow i have 2 hydro plants inside a lighted growing chamber any feed back would be greatly appreciated STAY HIGH!
P.E. I just read the entire thread, and I would suggest
that everyone do the same before commenting. I was
anxious to find the outcome, I am stoked that you
tried it out yourself, and that you are now patient for
the final product. If I can make a suggestion...
Depending on your yield, if you pull a fair amount, you
should consider taking at least a 1/3rd of you total yield
and cure it extremely slow. Don't rush anything with this
1/3rd of your total yield. Read up now on Harvesting and
Curing on the net. There are tons of resources and find
a process that is suited to long term storage. Performed
properly, you can continually cure your 1/3rd product for
many months. This extremely long time allows for the slow
dissipation of any chlorophyll that is still in your buds and
can potentially, greatly, increase overall potency and taste
of your 1/3rd slow cured crop. Invest in Mason Jars for this
Done correctly, you can make your 1/3rd age like wine.
If you are doing SOG... what's 1/3 of your total first yield
of a 6' MK. Again, it's just a suggestion, and to all those with
actual experience in this please correct me if I am wrong.
One last thing... to the post on the first of second page of
this thread that said sampling early is like eating a cake
that is not yet finished... tisk tisk. Cake is perfectly fine
before it's put in the oven. I kind of want to mix a cake
right now and just eat it out of the bowl. Just sayin'.
Good luck P.E.
Suggesting reading for you P.E.
If you wan to take a small portion of your
stash, and you are not worried about the
taste or smell but would rather get that
sweet MK high sooner than later...
Read that thread.
The process, earlier damned by those that
know it all, is actually a normal process for
tobacco to take the harshness out of the
smoke and to cure it much faster. The
above process will TOTALLY strip your good
MK taste, MK smell, and make they weight
lighter by almost 10%. You don't lose the
high, however, in the least. You might lose
some trichs in the process, but not enough
to notice. Just read it with an OPEN mind,
and only try with a small personal amount.
You will get your reward within 7 days.
Don't give haters the time of day, and if
trouble tries to tarnish your day...
Just shine it off!
Hey, didn't want to revive such an old thread, but I just chopped a few (4) of the smaller buds off a 6 plant gro. I'm water curing so I have something to tide me over. I'll probably only be able to fill the one hitter once a day for 7 days... but better than nothing I guess. The option is to buy some more, btu tough when I see mine and it looks better!! I'll post pics and report!!
In my personal experiences i always take a taste from the bottom of the plant and in fact the potency of a bud at six weeks just might be higher than that of one that is eight weeks so why not give it a try and let us know.
Not to be a stickler....but you are wrong about this. You are referring to making bubble gum hash with ice water (shaken to break trichome heads to the bottom for collection). Also, in hash production, the buds have already been cured and the trichomes are crystalline instead of resiny. In water curing, the water is room temperature, changed out daily, and the weed inside is not disturbed...this allows for the removal of chlorophyll, other plant substances, and unused nutrients. It is a more potent smaller bud once cured, and also removes various flavors from the bud giving the smoke a musky earthy flavor. Many people prefer not to use this method because of the flavor and mass removal. But, this is a widely accepted and effective curing method for a quicker smoke (10day cure from harvest vs 14-45day air cure).
