It all has to do with your flush do a extra week of flushing to bring out the taste and quailty of your buds the cure is important but not as much as your flush the more u clear her of nutes the better your plant will dry and cure your taste comes from flushing so more flush = SUM FINE FINE DOE DOE:v::v::+1::+1::beers::beers:

I do not care if you wet or dry trim (I wet trim)
The trick is to NOT LET YOUR BUDS OVER DRY.. so leave a little bit of the stick on them, and when the stick snaps some they are ready to jar..
Burp the jars every few days for 2 weeks... I find it hits 100% about 4 weeks in the jars, and is ok and good enough after 7-10 days in the jar...
Don't over think it.... is probabally the best advise....
Man.... to be a new grower again...

Hi @simps! My new approach is to remove only the big fan leaves, the let the buds & small leaves dry for a week, the tiny leaves around buds are full of trichomes, and they will re-cover your buds when drying. This helps in protecting the buds for a long curing (5 to 10 weeks depending on your environment) and gives you more green happiness in the end. Then, put everything in jars for the curing process, make sure your buds are not rotting, mold can corrupt and destroy your product very quickly, you just need to open the jars 5mins everyday and move the buds for a close inspection + air freshening. Finally, act as a cooker with its fresh products : try a bit of your product whenever you think it's ready, your smoker's skills will help in setting up the perfect curing process! Hope this helps, keep us up-to-date and happy growing! :facepunch:

Ah well, like many good things in life, the trick is to do it slowly. Dry your buds to around 20% to 25% of it's original weight, not to fast, it should take around a week if you keep the temperature around 21°C (70°F), hanging upside down. Then put them in jars, store them in a dark place and open daily for 1 hour for a week or two to realease excess humidity. The place were you are curing them should ideally be at 21°C (70°F) and have 60% humidity.
If the humidity where you live is not on the ideal range, then consider using something called 62% Boveda Packs (amazon has them) you put them in the jars and they maintain the humidity at the ideal value of 62%. I've never tried them before, but I'm considering doing trying them. They also work for long term storage.
