    Hey RIU, been a while.

    Anyway, looking further into my dry/cure techniques to improve my small-batch product.

    Dry or Wet? more importantly: WHY?

    Both, Heres why, trim off all the big extended Fan Leaves While wet and maybe a some Sugar Leaves to help open the plant a little to help prevent mold and help with even drying, then when the buds are dry and ready to be jarred, then you do the dry trim, IT helps to leave some sugar leaves on during the drying to help slow the dry and protect those buds trichs,

    I hand manicure my final trim right at harvest. I sloppily fiskar up and down each of my six colas to make six donkey dicks. I then cut some of the buds off it it starting low, when the result looks good I stop. About a pound wet(1/4 lb after dry) done this way takes me half an hour every time.

    It depends on humidity. Wet trim in humid climate and dry trim in dry climate. If you wet trim in a dry climate you get crumbling powder weed in 3 days. If you try to dry trim in a wet climate they won't dry for over 3 weeks and lose smell.

    For me Wet because I hate dry trimming. I get a cleaner trim wet and my soul is just about in tact after days of it.

    If you don't have to sell there is another option, no trim.
    I always leave a few buds like this, when it is cured enough you just rub on the larger sugar leaves that would be trimmed ordinarily and they will fall off.
    Trimming the shit out of weed is a newish thing. Go look at any of the pictures of the 70s weed.

    I use a dehumidifier to control humidity and prevent mold in my dry space and a heater/ac too. I keep it set the same year round
    and my buds are usable in 8 days, in demand at 14, and rockin at 30 in that same space
