    Hey guys, i just want to double check that i got everything right for harvesting my white widow plant, here is what i plan to do: I plan to first of all, chop the plant down at the bottom of the stem, then hang it upside down (the whole plant, not seperate buds because there only small) for about 3 - 4 days untill it becomes dry and brittle, e.g. you can snap the stem, once this has occured i plan to chop the buds off from the main stem, then de-leaf the buds so alls i have left is the bud, im then plan to place these buds into a glass jar with a sealed lid, and leave them in here for about 2 - 3 weeks letting them mature/cure whatever, each day checking the jar for sweat and turning the buds over, then resealing it. Thats it, is this ok? will this work fine? or will it mess my buds up? any comments, suggestions most welcome, thanks for your time.

    DONT CHOP YOUR PLANT YET, put that in pitch dark for a full day, your plants will develop more trichomes if you put it in the dark for a long period of time, trust me, ive seen it happen many times! Also, make sure to flush with pure water about a week before you plan to chop it, gets rid of phosphates and other metals. keep ur plant hung in a cool, dry ventilated area. Once you can feel that there is barely any moisture left in the buds, put it in a mason jar with the lid slightly loose, this will give it some more ventilation, and by the next day ur bud will be super danky! make sure to ventilate ur curing buds everyday, itll break down the chlorophyll faster! try putting one plant in the dark like i said, and do another one normal, and look at the difference!
