Help! Drying problems

Discussion in 'Growing Marijuana Indoors' started by primativezen, Oct 3, 2007.

  1. So I got some buds from a tiny outdoor plant, probably a 1/2 oz. I've been drying it in a tupperware container for 5 days, rotating the buds, with the top gradually getting more closed in.

    I began curing it today, but after 12 hours to burp it, it smelled bad. It smells like dried leaves. When I trimmed the bud, i did leave a little leafiness around the bud but not much at all. Is that the problem? I don't think it's possible to have molded..but it kinda smells like that too.

    Any input is greatly appreciated, as this is my first time!
  2. personally I'm kinda tweakerish about the waterleaves.. I take every single one off!.. It makes for much less harsh weed to smoke and yes they have so much chlorophyl in them that they will make some good weed smell kinda gross in a jar.. I would take it back out and retrim it..
  3. thats kinda what i thought I was going to have to do.

    its decently crackly-dry now, but should i continue to let them "dry" with restricted airflow to get rid of the leafy smell completely or just go ahead and cure them?

    thanks a lot man, will be retrimming tonight
