morning all.

hope this is the right place for random questions lol. I have just seen a video of a guy soaking his cropped buds in 3 different trays of water to wash off any "dirt" before hanging them up to dry?????

ive never seen or heard of this, is that not just the easiest way to get rot in the drying process??

thank, kermit

@mrfrog hey mate, it's a done thing, and because the trichomes aren't water soluble it is the best way to wash off any bug carcases or dirt and hair etc that gets trapped amongst the resins etc. If done correctly it will not create more mold issues, admittedly you cant just dump them In a bucket of water and then hang them and that's that, there is a process and you need to give them a chance to air dry off before being closed up and hung for the long dry. 

But yes to answer the question it is a thing and no it won't hurt the buds by doing so. I know plenty of growers that employ the technique, mainly outdoor growers though, only time I see people owing it indoors is if they had a bug issue. Best way to try it out and see is to take a few tops that you can experiment on and wash those while hanging the rest and see if it makes a difference. 

I feel like a, like a slice of butter... melting on top of a big-ol' pile of flapjacks... yeah.

@mrfrog

Like @bubblehok says, I've done this before to get rid of a bad spider mite infestation before drying and curing, after having an epic fail trying to vacuum them off my buds. Don't make that mistake.....

It takes a big leap of faith but the plant's resin and water don't mix, so as long as you soak long enough to penetrate the buds, then dry very well afterwards you shouldn't have many problems. Fans are your friends.

Good luck Smile

 

It's just a fucking plant mate.
