The way I cure my buds is cut them, trim them and hang them on strings in my closet for 2 days. The outer part of the bud usually gets a little crisp(texas wether). After my 2 days I either put them in a paper bag rolled up or a jar(big jars lol). I try to open the jar/bag 2-3 times a day to let the moisture out. If you dont open it up it is likely that it will mold. I do this prolly for another 4-5 days. Or until the stems snap the way I like them too.
Putting the bud in the jar allows for an even dryout. This draws the moisture thats on the inside of the bud to the outside and makes a better product. I never tried to just go straight to the jar but that might give the sugars more time to break down. But who wants to wait on their bud that long? lol.
I have a friend that dries his out on the plant itself. He basically stops watering and puts his plants( pot and all) into a dark cool closet. I think he told me 3-4 weeks. he has the best tasting smoke in the city. He also has alot of plants so he doesnt mind waiting the extra time. It works good for him.
Do you see anything wrong with these methods? I may think I know everything but I usually dont get to talk to pro's. lol.
