I am a big advocate of dry trimming. Everyone has their methods and beliefs. I remember reading extensively that dry trimming a plant will improve the buds' scent later and is a better overall thing. I believe there's a giant thread here on IC about this and I believe it was a really good debate on this.

The only downside I've found in dry trimming is as the buds dry, the sugar leafs will recede into the buds making trimming a bit of a bitch.

Ha, it was pinned at the top. Duh. Anyway, here's the thread I was talking about.

My opinion is to only remove fan leaves then I don't trim until consumed, or don't trim and bubble.

I agree that trimming just before consuming gives the best taste! I always store my herb untrimmed. It also cures better that way even though it looks like shit.

Transpiration is evaporation + guttation.


Why would you want unused nutes IN your buds?
You're feeding to late if this is the case.
Harvest before lights on and the sugars are left in the soil to be left out of the buds.


Pack a bowl of nutes and smoke it.
Hows that taste?

My thing is if i have to dig into a bud for a sugar leaf I'm trying too hard...


I usually wait till a decent branch snaps like a vlasic pickle..in my area that usually takes 5-7 days in the Summer 3-4 days in the Winter....



I like my branches to be about 4-6 inches long (unless its a top bud) and I leave myself a little bit of branch at the bottom to hold onto, so I can spin the branch around between my thumb and fore finger without knocking shit over...


I feel like trimming ALL the sugar leaf isn't completely necessary, a small amount can contribute to the aromas and flavors of the flower

My method is...

1. Chop the entire plant at the stalks
2. Hang entire plants upside down in a dark room
3. Set dehumidifier to 40%
4. 5-6 days later they're usually ready
5. A nice easy dry trim
6. Jars

With dry trimming, it's going to be a lot more crumbly and you're going to get kief over everything. So you want to be in a room with hard easy to clean floors and you want to be conscious that you're going to have a bit of a mess on your hands.

Also, check out bonzai trimmers. They are the single greatest thing humanity has ever created.

I've always trimmed wet except my last crop. My last crop was Finnished away from home and I wasn't willing to leave it hanging in the new location to dry.
Me and the Mrs sat and and took down the branches and trimmed the fan leaves, packed it into a cardboard box and drove home.
I then just hung it with sugars still attached and let it dry.
When it came to the final trim i gotta say I noticed no difference at all other than it seemed to take longer to trim dry sugar leaves over wet.

Oh, I don't think it looks like shit...

I think they look great, and as those dried glands fall off of the sugar leaves in storage, they accumulate at the bottom of the jar.

I like to collect that and sprinkle it over a joint before it's rolled and man... it's good.

I personally LIKE the look of an untrimmed bud. Looks shaggy, so long as it's not a really leafy strain.

I've never noticed a difference in taste or smell with trimmed v untrimmed buds, wet or dry trimmed... so to me, it's a matter of preference.

I know, I know... there's debate over both methods... but, there is also a lot of debate over which political party is better/worse: Red or Blue. We all know they all work for the same money, and it's a big joke. They both are corrupt and scummy.

I guess people just like to debate.
