    I have been growing indoors about a year now and every harvest is bigger than the last. I was curing in glass jars when plants were only two or three ounces each but now my last smallest one was eight ounces and I had a few plants.
    That is way to many glass jars for me , so do any of you cure in food grade 5 gallon plastic buckets ? I am trying one now with eight ounces and a large Boveda pack and a gamma seal on it. It has a lot of extra room in it , not sure if that is a good thing or bad.
    Also trying about the same weight in a large mylar bag.
    I have been storing in freezer bags in freezer after the cure but not happy with either.
    I like the idea of bucket for cure and storage but lots of static involved.
    Just an old man that don't know squat looking for ideas.
    Thanks

    A few people on here cure in plastic totes. I dont see why a bucket wouldnt work. I would say storing in the freezer is not a good idea. Unless youre making hash with the frozen material. I have used large mason jars with a bovedas for long term storage. Ive had it up to a year or more and works great.
