    MJ Curing Schedule Dilemma

    Sorry I missed your last post! Been slammed! I actual bought Boveda packs and hygrometer lids for my mason jars on Amazon a little over a week ago & they work great...no more guess work! I also flipped my new crop to flower last week & they exploding! And I trimmed up below the Scrog net...

    MJ Curing Schedule Dilemma

    I just finished my 1st harvest and dried for 5 days (I live in Colorado so it dries pretty quick) & now it’s been curing in mason jars for 5 days. So here’s the dilemma...I’m going out of town in 6 days and will be gone for a total of 6 days. My buds will have only been curing for 11 days at...

    Need help fast: New harvest starting to smell musty

    Thanks Olfogey. Guess it’s time to step up my game & get me some hygrometers & Broveda packs. My harvest is dry now & in large mason jars. Already doing much better & starting to smell more like ganja & less like hay/alfalfa each day! Thanks!

    A Time to Harvest?

    SCROG stands for screen of green. It’s a heavy duty net that goes across the entire canopy which is allows the grower to manually manipulate the plants growth outward or laterally as opposed to straight up. As the plants grow, I’ll move the branches and leaves around about twice a week to...

    What causes you to fail a cannabis drug test?

    Oh, and a good friend of mine has had to test monthly for years. He uses a Wizinator with a small heating patch & synthetic urine, and never once had a problem.

    What causes you to fail a cannabis drug test?

    I begrudgingly quit 5 weeks ago anticipating an upcoming job change...Sucks because I’m just not into alcohol or anything else, so MJ is my one & only choice for R & R...and I really, really like my MJ. I smoke copious amounts of high-grade ganja, so it will take me at least another 6 weeks...

    A Time to Harvest?

    Thanks NENugs, I’ve got a perpetual set-up as well, but on a smaller scale. I grow 4 plants in Veg and 4 in flower. I actually just moved my veg plants over to my flower tent yesterday after just finishing my 1st harvest. It’s kinda crazy how some of you diehards are growing twice that amount...

    A Time to Harvest?

    Well this should be a piece of cake with your background! I haven’t built anything bigger than a 5 bucket RDWC system, including the control station, but my guess is, it’s probably a little easier to maintain and Scrog compared to DWC. Plus, I travel a lot for work & I spend most summer weekends...

    Need help fast: New harvest starting to smell musty

    Thanks for the insight Oldfogey! As a rookie just completing my 1st grow, I did a ton of research on nearly all aspects of growing, but failed to realize the science and importance of drying and curing techniques as possibly the most crucial part of the entire process! I also dried my crop too...

    Need help fast: New harvest starting to smell musty

    Sounds good CK. Been out cleaning my boat the last 4 hours, but I’m back home and I’ll keep and eye out for your PM. The funny thing about my new harvest...I’m getting ready to switch jobs and may have to take a drug test, so I quit smoking nearly 5 weeks ago and I’m still not clean as of yesterday!

    A Time to Harvest?

    Wow HG, you’re not messing around and that’s a lot of work! I’m about to pull my boat out of the lake and clean it so I’ll be back in a few hours to follow up

    Need help fast: New harvest starting to smell musty

    Holy F-bomb, those are some impressive buds! I was up really late last night trimming and I think I fell asleep just before your 1st post. And ****, it is a ton of work trimming and manicuring! I think it gave me carpal tunnel in my cutting hand. Lol I was grabbing about a 1/2 ounce of buds...

    A Time to Harvest?

    Here’s a few more pics of the RDWC in use in the grow tent...and by the way, that system cost me about $300 to build, including pumps and the collapsible 25gal reservoir. There are cheaper systems on the eBay and Amazon, but most are just DWC, crap designs, low flow with poor reviews...

    A Time to Harvest?

    Hi HG I really appreciate the kind words! I researched MJ growing like a mad man over the last 6 months and learned a ton from this forum as well. I built my own RWDC system after doing tons of research on that as well. For some reason that concept really appealed to me and it’s been a ton of...

    Thanks CK! I’ve got the buds drying in a dark, ventilated tent with fans, but I did have them in the light for 3 or 4 hours while trimming. I’ll keep them in total darkness now and when I move them to jars, I’ll keep them in a dark tent as well.
