Can any one give me some helpful tips on the drying and curing of my first crop? I know I'm going to manicure first then hang upside down for about a week then.......... That is where I get stuck. Can any one help First off I want to thank you guys for the response, now I just heard I'm not even suppose to manicure first, I'm supposed to cut the bottom of the stalk then just hang upside down for two to three weeks. Then do my thing. Any truth to this.
