Sorry. I have always wet trimmed and have great smelling buds. I dry trimmed a few
times out of necessity and found no difference.

I have always wet trimmed My last round & this one coming out in the next week or so are all the same strains .... so its a perfect time to try the dry trim on them to see if theres a difference or not . I'll just pluck the fans & let the branches hang till dry . do you guys suggest trimming them then or wait till they've sweat out the moisture a few times in the jars before final trimming ???

I will say this, we can all agree that the longer you take to dry them the better.

That said, when I went from hanging to dry then trimming to wet trimming in a trimming machine, I had to relearn how to dry my buds. They can dry SO much faster when they are trimmed wet. The first couple of runs when I used the trimmer, I was not happy AT ALL with the results. Smell and taste were lacking to the point I was kind of embarrassed when I showed my finish product off.

Then I got good at controlling the drying environment.. thus able to slow down the dry from a wet trim. This made a monumental difference.

I ask the folks who have compared their own grows, how many days did you dry them compared to each other? I asked because you can't dry them side by side in the same room or the wet trimmed stuff will dry faster and the test won't be fair. I could hang buds on one side of the room and they would take around 10 days. In the same room, the wet trimmed would dry in 3-4.

Now, I wet trim them in a trimmer, and dump the buds in a rack. I keep the room around 65-70F and shoot for 65% RH and it takes around 10 days. Then I bin them up around a stable 65% and cure them as long as I can, usually two-four weeks at least.

I will probably never go back to dry trimming because I feel I get top shelf results, and it takes FAR less time trimming wet.

dry trim

I always dry trim. then there is no rush to trim and almost no need for scissors. I think the no smell and poor taste comes for ppl thinkin it is dry and sticking in jars for cure. curing and drying are 2 totally different things. the cure can not be started until the bud is fully dried...... dont stretch the dry, I think thats where ppl get the hay/grass smell

To say your Wet trimmed was garbage compared to dry seems foolish...

You need to learn how to cure than bud... Yes dryer material that is not trimmed smells more and nicer right after the hang, but if you cant sell cured bud, then your process is wack or your bud is shit.

I Wet trim, I love bubble, and I just freeze trimmings... And my weed is Dank, and REAKS and TASTE Sooooooooo nice "I am lucky to have alot of variety to compare too"

Not to say that Dry trim wont get you nicer or smeller bud, but to tell people on the site that wet trim is shit compared to dry is garbage... Cool post, get people trying new things, but lets be realistic here people this is not the magical fix everyone has been looking for, the; "A perfect cure every time" thread is!

Hammerhead has completed 5 grow reports. Click to see my Grow Reports
I did both wet and dry I found the dried bud smelled stronger then the wet trimmed bud. This is why I changed I prefer To trim dry IME or I would have never changed. It has never effected Potency wet or dry the bud is dank.. Can be very strain dependent. You wont notice it as much with a very strong smelling strain. I wish you luck what ever you choose to do.

So you are saying to dry faster for less grass smell?

Did you read my post above? When you are comparing your dry trimmed to your wet trimmed, how did you dry them each to compare? In what conditions and how many days?

Dry trim here, IMO it makes the final product much better, it is also much easier to clean up when dry, the leaf will almost fall off the bud when touched with scissors.

these are my results.. and ill never wet trim again PERIOD .. it mite save time. but it also fucks up the dryin process.. meaning u have to cure longer to get a smooth smoke..
i have always done it like this,& have always been trying to convince peeple to do it the right way....this way!
trimming wet buds is no goodfor me personally
but each its own way....

ya ive always harvested.. and had too much work to do puttin more plants into flower so i never got around to doing a wet trim.. .. but this last harvest was huge and i was going to try it. so i only did 1 plant .that was done before the rest.. and ya Wet Trimming is not the RIGHT WAY for sure.. it almost ruins bud..

now i take a few days to clean my room after every harvest.. instead of every 2 harvests.. so this helps me to let them dry long enough !!
