Most everything I read just gave a time frame and all the buds were monsters in the pictures. I've heard that its dry enough and ready to cure when the stem bends but doesn't break; but the stems were doing that when I had just cut it down Any other ways to tell? Right now they feel crispy after 2 days of constant airflow via small van and ac in house was on. Today the area surrounding doesn't really smell like weed anymore unless you take a big huff, just hay smelling - but the buds them self when you get up close and sniff have a potent smell. Pointers?
