Ok so it's been raining for 2 days now pretty good and I sprayed the baking soda solution on my plants for PM a while ago. I'm wondering if I now need to wash the buds because I'm pretty sure nature has done a decent job of washing them right now.

The rain got baking soad and lemon juice in round you way mate? 😉

Up to you man, Id still wash them myself, the lemon and baking soda help to get shit off. But its not massively important mate, if you think you're good now, then you wont have to. Washing is more for washing off bug shit lol

That's also good but I havent had ANY bugs really even close to this one. Durban poison is a pretty resilient strain for outdoor tho I've read. I'm a chop one that's milky and try it out lol

Your call mate, if you think its all gone you should be ok. Maybe wash it to be safe, but its up to you. The lemon juice help kill off the mould spores you see. So it help prevent any coming back whilst its drying. Like you DP is resilient to mould so you should be ok if you've managed to remove all the PM and it hasn't come back

Hey question about curing. My ladies been drying about 3 days and the outside is crispyish....but still soft. Do I cure them when the small stems snap or crack? I think the smaller buds may be ready for curing....

For proper curing, you have to make sure the bud is properly dry, the stem the bud is on has to snap at the base of the bud pretty much. Different buds dry at different times, if the stem at the base snaps, jar it, if it doesn't, hang for longer. 

Jar too soon and the terpenes will get wet again, and it will ruin smell and flavour, timing is important, don't rush it Smile Wait until the stems, at the base of the bud snaps

Ok. Solid. I'm sure the other big ones need time. But my lil guys are for sure ready to snap. Will check asap when the kiddies are sleeping.

Thanks man. Feels good to make it this far and have a product at the end....was worried about this one for a while lol.

So update: the very tiny popcorn shits are dry enough but still a little fresh. Stems bend on the popcorn still so not ready at all for jars....its a slow dry at 60 to 62% RH and 21 to 22 degrees. Which is good....better than too fast and...really.....that's all I can do so it's gotta work lol.

Yes man!!! I rolled the shitty little dry ones that I couldn't hang and cut off by accident. The high is DAMN nice. Its not strong but again I havent touched the colas and it did go herm on me from stress I believe but it's nice. A nice relaxed uplifting high....real calming but talkative still. Not bad for my first time. I'm way more excited for the Durban poison tho.....she looks JUICY!!

the high will improve as the weed dries mate. The THC isnt ready until its dry 😉 Try decarbing some then smoking it, might taste a little harsh, but itll mash you up lol

Hey question. My stems feel a little softer than the buds....the smaller ones cracked but the fatter ones bend a bit but the buds seem super dry to the feel....like crunchy. They've been since last Monday around 3pm here and its sunday at 10 am....so almost 6 full 24hr cycles at 22 deg C and 60% RH and dropping to 57% currently.

Should I still leave them hanging or begin the jarring? I have my smaller stuff jarred and curing in the dark now.
