Hello everyone, some general questions...When you harvest, do you cut the whole plant? or depends on maturity, first cut one half and then the other?
At the time of drying...what do you think is better: hanging the whole plant (having manicured before) or hanging the branches? ty

You can cut the whole plant or do partial harvests. The lower buds won't be as mature as the top ones so harvesting all at once can get you 2 slightly different highs based on whether you smoke the top or bottom buds. As far as how to dry it and whether to wet or dry trim depends on your environment. If where you dry is going to be really dry(25%-30% RH) then I would 100% do a dry trim that way it allows the plant to dry slower. If it is more humid (50%-55% RH) then I would do a dry trim. As far as how to hang it, that doesn't matter too much. I usually just separate all the branches and hang them at the top of my tent. The goal is to get a nice slow dry that takes 7-10 days for the buds to reach ~60% humidity.

I cut the whole plant and remove all bigger leaves.

I cut the whole plant . I prefer to hang the whole plant with leaves ( except the fan leaves ) because it allow a longer drying and supposedly a better final product.

How i prefer to do it: :grin: i always cut the hole plant, cut the branches from the main stem and all fan leafs. Then i let here dry and give her a dry trim befor curing. With my actually grow i have some mold issues, thats why i gave here a wet trim to dry here faster. But in my experience a dry trim and the longer drying time give a better taste :+1:
