Ok, so i have a good crop almost ready to be harvested, but i'm stuck on how to dry and cure it. One of my buddies was going to dry it at his house, but he's going back to college before the buds are going to be done. So my options are pretty limited. Would it be horrible if I hung them up in plastic containers and put them outside, but in the shade (in a dog house)? Or is it absolutely neccesary to hang them indoors? Also, I have a spot where I can put glass jars full of bud, where i'm going to cure... so my question is how bad would it be to just go straight to curing? I read somewhere that you can break the stem but leave it growing, so it dies slowly and begins drying or something. Is it possible to do that, then go right to curing? Lastly, I just want to confirm that drying will smell... a lot. I'm assuming it will be a little less than the plant, but still bad. Stupid question I know. Thanks for your help!
