Bigger jars hahaha
I am using the paper bags for the first time and asked the same question. I am still waiting for the answer but my education tells me that this is a semi-permeable membrane made of fibers that seems like a kind of intermediary between air-drying in a room and curing in a non-permeable container (turkey bags, jars etc). I think the paper pulp sucks some moisture out. However, closing the bags keeps moisture in to a degree. it's a logical stage in the progression if slow-drying is the objective. I'm talking out of school tho.
I'm not here to fight with you people. Just here to talk about growing. that's it.
Bigger jars hahaha
LOL I just read this entire thread and it was hilarious. All this hub bub about RH temp paper bags plastic buckets mason jars. Sooooo overkill.
Here's how you do it:
Chop them down and put them all at one time in the microwave for 2 minutes per Oz. bamb your done.
No, seriously though. Hilarious.
Broken down in simple language. I'm wondering though if there are better cures.
i think a good point to remember is this. You can mess up good bud if you dont do things at least somewhat right.
Badly grown bud, or bad genes, will give you buds that never seem to cure properly in the sense that they just dont ever smell and taste that great. Cure them all you want it will still taste like grass or something. Especially when you pick early.
In my years of growing... ive leaned towards letting the stems get to where they snap more so than dont before i jar. But the slower and more evenly you can get the moisture level to drop is the key to success usually. The density of the bud plays a big part too sometimes. Also sometimes the thicker the coast of resin is, it seems to take longer to cure. Just my two cents.
I used to see so much bud in this area with sugar leaves that have mildew or mold on them. I think its easier to have happen than people think sometimes.
Flint MI: Dayton Family said it best! WORST GHETTO in the usa. Flint (and the I-75 corridor thru MI) needs help. crime comparison per capita (250,000 - 100,000 group) comapre the stats for flint to others like Detroit, St. Loius, and New Orleans. gun control is lost.
My suggestion for large harvests is a rubbermade tote w/ a trash bag across the top of tote then snap the lid on. The trash bag creates a nice seal once you snap the lid down. My buddy has been doing this for years and has awsome smoke hope this helps, plus the humidor for cigars is a great way to store for long term on smaller harvests.
thanks for the post ill do good use of it
