cut leaves and limb, then cut into their individual limbs/buds, hang for 5-7daze w/ fan, cardboard box for ~2-3 daze, then burped&stirred (starting twice then moving to once a day) daily in glass jars or tupperware.

:peace:,

Forget the cardboard box. I trim all the leaf material off that I can. The small sugar leaves that are covered in trichs get saved for hash. All other trim is thrown away. I hang in a dark space that has air circulation. Light degrades THC. When the bud is dry, I cut the buds off the stems and put into mason jars and store in a cool dark space (or sleeve the jars). Open them several times a day to get rid of residual moisture. As the buds get dryer, you can open the jars less. When dry to your liking, leave to cure for several weeks.

cooler is better than warmer. 45-70degrees F. 40-60%rh to allow good drying and stop any bud rotting from occuring. Keep them in the dark as much as possible.

This has been my method for drying popcorn buds and early harvest. I cut them into there individual buds, and put them in the wooden box with a rack made from screen. 5-7 days sometime less then into jars for burping. Everything else will be hung out to dry then burped and cured.

Actually, I don't know for sure but I would think that if you had a spare refridgerator that you could use specifically for drying and curing, you could set it for about 45-50degrees and it would dry it faster and better than other methods. It would keep the temps and rh right and would keep it dark and air tight. Although, I don't know if it would remove the moisture from the space very well without opening it a couple times a day to remove the built up moisture.

It is not good to dry them in too cool a temp either. I do not believe that 45 is better than 65.

Cooler will definitely take longer....if that's what you're looking for.
