    just cut 1/3 of my crop this year and i think im going to dry it in a brown paper bag, i will mix it up once a day. you think they will dry like this? and im guessing it will take about 2 weeks depending on the humidity.

    filled up 2 inches in the bottom of a brown grocery bag, 4 main stems, 4 tip buds

    Since a friend turned me onto paper bag drying 15 years ago, I have dried well over 100 lbs. of buds that way. It is superior to hang-drying for several reasons.
    I even have a post in the curing section detailing the method.

    “put the paper bag in the oven (dont turn it on obviously) but ovens especially gas ovens have a very low humidity because of the piolet light. works wonders for drying stuff out.. takes about half the time.’

    So my new space is setup so its inconvenient to hang my stuff in the corner of the room like I used to. so I have been searching for a different way to do things
    Usually I would wet trim, hang dry for 5-8 days just before the stem snaps. Clip bids and do any final trimming. Then burp in a jar or bag until dry and let it set for a week atleast before it goes.

    My problem at the new place is this:
    my flower room will be packed without a place for hanging so can’t do that.

    I have to contain the smell, no smelly block party for me lol. must maintain stealth.

    Must wet trim. because I use fresh frozen for most concentrates I make.

    My solution was to trim AND take the buds offf the stem at the same time. my reason for that was I hate handling all the stems again when its dry, it seems like double duty.

    at this point I have seen them placed on those drying racks but they are too open imo so I went with paper grocery bags cause the are light weight, they suck away moisture, not completely open like the racks, I can put them on top of my pots under the canopy out of the way and still filter air, I can close them if I feel they need to slow down drying just fold the top over.

    we shall see if it works though lol. keep ya posted did platinum bubba to test
