Wondering What The Best Way Of Flushing Drying And Curing Buds Is If You Harvest A Week Early. Can You Still Ripen Them To A Sweet Smoke If You Take Your Time With The Curing Process.

Jack H., while harvesting early, due to a bit of paranoia, may seem like a good idea, I would wait that extra week to allow that fine bud a chance to ripen, as it will pile on some weight during that final week.
If you do decide to harvest early, you just do what you would normally do, i.e. hang the lightly trimmed buds for 6-10 days, til the stem snaps. Then pop it into a paper bag for a few days...opening the bag to let some fresh air in every day, then into the jars for the final cure. Remember to open the jars every day and keep your eye open for the dreaded mold.
Good luck, and welcome to the family...

thanks for the tips
I cut them at 51 days, buds nice fat and tight with tones of crystals. about 50% or maybe a bit less of the pistals are orange/lightbrown.
One strian I started from seed. Its definately a beautiful indica, short, stocky thick stems/leaves fat buds stinky and sticky itky itky, not sure what kind it is but its amazing looking, Indica dominant plants usually have a little shorter flowering time anyway ???? dont they?? the other two kinds white rino and purple kush from clone, the white rino I think is 60 days and the kush 50 to 60
I'm I right on that ??? do you know the flowering time for these strains??
