wet trimming is only a feasible option for very small personal grows

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?

If you want a response you'll have to ask me again. I can't understand your post, stoner.

I would have said wet trimming is the only feasible option for larger grows. You lose far too much handling bulk when it's dry. And what about the sticky? having to stop and clean the shears every five minutes or less when there are pounds to trim? I say boring and no good for the arthritis!


But with a small grow you can pretend you're a Connoisseur and do it any way you like ... and call it what you want.


Isn't life grand?!

even still I don't if its hot and dry time of harvest when its cooler I like to rough wet trim to take away some moisture
I really can't regulate temp or relative humidity where I dry

Depending on how you are drying and curing the cut ends of the leaves definitely evaporate water away faster. In a controlled-humidity environment it shouldn't really matter though. Oldschoolgrower's idea of using a combination of a humidifier and dehumidifier to keep it at an exact humidity is a pretty slick idea. Its similar to how industrial tobacco producers age tobacco at controlled humidity levels.

If you can, this seems optimal. It compensates for smaller buds drying first and keeps everything safely on hold until finding motivation to do the work. Waiting too long before packaging (jarring) would probably cause the _bouquet_ to dissipate.

Makes sense. Go drier at first to get the extreme moisture away that could cause mold and then move towards the 60% target without over drying. Cooler air gives some refrigerator effect - less breakdown before it's stable.

I guess I should have stated I pump the AC down to 60F, then when the buds first go in it's 45% RH. After 4 days at 45%, I then slowly bring the RH up over the next week to around 60%. This will keep the buds ready for trimming for months/years.

Believe me, when you have hundreds of pounds to dry, nobody is wet trimming. Also, if you have hundreds of pounds, nobody is trimming the second it dries either. There must be a acclimation time period, or you will miss that small dry window every-time. Once the plants reach 60% RH and the buds are "dry", then you can buck down into bins also. However I keep my bins in an air conditioned room with 60% RH as well.
Nice technique! Thanks for elaborating. I can't imagine having hundreds of pounds to dry. I'm really just hoping around the start of next year to have hundreds of grams to dry lol I really miss smoking. My outdoor efforts this year all met with disaster.
