Drying Racks vs. Hanging

Need some input here farmers:

If you have done a side by side experiment with the drying racks and the hanging process please share your info

From your experience what were the end results when using a drying rack compared to the normal hanging process?

Do these drying racks work?

lil of both 😉

I made a drying tent out of a GrowLab GL60.

Plants hang at first, and once they are trimmed they sit on screen racks (I voted for racks tho).

I don’t hang them for any specific amount of time. Some get trimmed within a day, others not for several days. Overall, it’s usually 7-10 days before the stems snap, sometimes longer if it’s extra cool.

Here’s a little YouTube vid showing my setup.

Are people skipping the hanging process and placing them directly on the racks after a harvest and wet trim? Is that what these racks were intended for? Skipping the hanging process.

Are drying racks supposed to allow the grower to skip the hanging process?

Basically trim buds wet and place on drying rack. No hanging at all?

PLEASE ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS. DO NOT RAMBLE ON ABOUT SOMETHING ELSE. THANKS

Thats what i thought. I figure they would get damaged for sure laying on a flat surface

So basically instead of placing them in paper bags for a day or two after hanging you would instead use the drying rack instead of the paper bags. Is this correct?

I think i am catching on

As with most aspects of growing there are no hard and fast rules on how to dry and cure other than DO IT AS SLOW AS POSSIBLE. And, I personally believe you should dry in the dark. But at the end of the day, it’s all about personal preference.

I always place buds in brown paper bags before jarring.

MY routine is: trim, hang branches of hand trimmed, put machine trimmed loose buds in drying rack. Then, when they are ready, I put the buds that were in the hanging rack into brown paper bags since they dry faster than the stuff still on branches. Usually by the time the hanging branches snap the machine trimmed is ready to be jarred and I cut the hand trimmed bud of the branches and place it into the drying racks for a day or two before putting it into brown paper bags and then finally jarring it. I burp all my curing meds 2-3 times a day for about a week or two before smoking.
