i have a purple wreck and a mystery seed (appears to be a sativa or sativa dominant strain). majority (if not all) of the hairs have sunk back in on both and changed color. i took a sample last friday from each plant and used a quick dry method. well i tried the steam in the microwave method...still turned out pretty damn dry. it did produce a high but when i looked up the quick-dry method it said it would lose taste and potency. i was loaded off both though...and i only took enough to roll a j of each sample. im still not sure and dont have a magnifying glass. so im hoping someone can give me a time frame of when to chop. thank you. one pic is the giant cola from the mystery strain...the other plant up close is the purple wreck. and the pic from further away is of my whole setup complete w/ a 600w hps...all the other plants in orange buckets are big bang seeds (fem) that i have just started flowering last week. any and all opinions welcome. this is my first grow/harvest by the way. how did i do? any tips for when trimming the buds after harvest? i already have a space set up to hang them from pins and hangers with a fan for air circulation and paper bags from safeway...and mason jars (for each stage of drying).
