I leave them for usually 8 to 10 days and then into french canning jars and they are placed on a heating pad in my waterbed I put the pad on medium heat and let the buds sweat for about an hour and then open the tops of the jars and let the condensation evaporate and judge the cure still needed and repeat as necessary. I have never had mold or buds so dry they crumble as you pick them up so I'm happy with my current procedure. I have used the paper bag method for an experiment same with the microwave and hanging them in the flower room(warmer there than the veg room or the closet in the winter) but everybody does what works for them best but alternative choices spawn more alternatives. I'll bet SCROG SOG and DWC were created through experimentation, trying out alternative methods of WHAT IF?
from my reading this sounds like a combo of jar and water curing, or am I way off on this?

I am not sure of any similarity in that post to water curing. Water curing is when you are dealing witha large outdoor crop of shwagg, and you have a good "running water" ditch nearby to utilize. That is an extreme cure in my book.

obviously, as usual, SFC has no idea what he is talking about. A water cure has nothing to do with a ditch.

for someone whose supposed to be new here you seem to have a few certain targets youve picked out that you seem to have some personal issues with.

so whose hidin behind that mask.....????

and for someone who wants to act so smart, yet prefaces himself with his signature that he could infact truly be a dumbass, that part is just rather amusing hahaha.

Hey peoples, gna add my 2 cents.

I leave my plant in the dark for a couple of days before chopping the plant so that the buds harden up, the plant uses whatever nutrients r left during this period to bulk up the buds a little. Then I chop the plant and hang dry, for a week or two then stick em in an airtight container n open it up every now n then for some fresh air. Haven't proven the 2 days int he dark thing to work yet though, recently been talkin to a guy who lives not so far away from me, he's been doing this for years, went up to check out his setup and it was immaculate, enough to make ya angry with jealousy, lol, but he does that to all his plants n I am gonna try it out with my current baby a.k.a. barbara. Hope this is useful 4 some peeps, I'll ttyl, happy tokin!
