well I haven't weighed my purple bag yet because it's still hanging. But I did get a dry weight on driftwood minus the stuff that never got hung and what I've already smoked. After that I ended up with just over two onces from her. Am expecting more though from my purple bag seed we shall see. :hubba:

the paper bags are to allow the bud to dry in a dark place and still keep some moisture in the bud while allowing it to slowly compact over time... that is why you w ant to turn them and give them some air once or twice a day... this is also known as "burping"

you do it in the second stage of drying, when the outside of the bud is getting crispy and the inside is still moist... the turning should last between a week and 4 weeks... once you can almost snap the stems with your fingert, but not quite, then it is time to cure them in sealable jars..

i have read that some people do it for up to 8 weeks... :eek:

:D
hope that helped :aok:

looks good dude, thanks for sharing!

isn't the brown paper bag kind of the same idea as osmosis- water moving from high to low concentration (concentration gradient)? there is more water in the bud so the water moves from the bud into the dry paper bag- equilibrium crap :D? or am i wrong?

good work man,
so how long do you think you'll be drying and curing for?

Well my driftwood has been in jars curing for a bit over a week now and it is still needing to be burped daily.

The un-named purple bag girl has moved from the close hangers to the paper bags and should be ready for jars in the next day or two.
