    Default How long

    Chopping tomorrow and fuck me do I hate it lol . Always ends up feeling long and takes way longer than I felt it should have. Course starting off I'm whizzing and by the end I'm sick of it and going slower. Used to do it all in a day but don't even push myself like that no more lol. Probably as I'm getting bigger yields but I do it over two days and hate every minute of it. I tried to take off some leaves tonight just to make tomorrow feel quicker lol. Done like two plants and few leaves here and there and just gave up. Next time though I am gonna remove the leaves or least some of them in the final week. Mate does it and reckons it makes life a lot easier.

    Anyway wanted to know how long do you guys take per plant? I always say an hour but usually ends up taking an hour and a bit. Got some stuff to do tomorrow as well ffs so can't even get started until around 2pm. Probably be going at it until about 10 or 11 ffs lol.

    Yeah I'm around where AND is at about 1-2 hours max but I don't grow many plants at once so some here will be at it for over 5 hours etc on bigger grows

    Default How long

    I hate the trim with a passion but it has to be done.
    I hate seeing peeps taking there plants into the front room for the trim . I mean how stupid is it . We grow them with the protection of a carbon filter and then trim in the front room stinking out the house and the street. For this reason I trim in my room with extraction on full and keep myself and my plants safe . Gotta be the worst time to have the door come in when ya chopping.

    There's a sticky thread by Catch-e-Monkey about keeping yourself safe while trimming.
    Haves read it's worth it

    Me and my missus do it . We get a box of beer . Some good tunes . Start that when kiddoes go to bed at 9ish and we end up wasted at around 1-2am

    Lately my 18yr old daughter wanted some extra cash . She smokes and knows i grow . So i showed her how to trim. I pay her 20$an hour and surpising as fuck she does a hell of a job . Shes saving for college so she needs every penny she can lay a hand on .

    I'm guilty of trimming out of the tent and stinking out the whole house lol . I would trim in my bedroom but course through out the day gonna leave the room and even if didn't the house still stinks. Last grow I chopped inside the tent with the bed side lamp on in there. Couldn't smell a thing and done it all in two days, feels bit better knowing you've only gotta do half. God knows how I managed to do it all in 1 day in the past lol smaller yields but still took literally the whole day.

    Anyway I phoned the housing and said can't get time off work until next week friday. Told me no can do but mid July is free if that's okay. Told them its perfect lol gives me time to let the plants 100% properly finish and dry and not have to feel everything's rushed. Also works out good as my best mates vegging my zcube and just showing their sex now so cuts be ready by then. Say 2 weeks to root and then 2 weeks in the first pot. He drops them round and ready to go straight into 6litres although I am gonna finish in bigger pots this time as want to do less plants. Dunno but just feel my drying goes better when I've used bigger pots and have bigger buds. I can't wait to crack on with it as I loved the zkittles I smoked and got stung when I thought I was buying cuts of it lol ended up just being some proper shitty lemon strain. Fella ain't been seen since lol am in two minds about giving him a slap but leave it to my mate as he bought a lot more than me.

    good bday pressie fer yerself that gaz

    im with G, i stick tunes on n zone out helps having a few already skinned up! trying to roll with sticky fingers is a ‘mare!!!
    average about 3 hrs per plant, but i nib off the big fans n any frosted big leaves, hang whole for a few days then get crackin with the sugar trim n destalking, i find it helps to have the wee sugar leafs dryer to nip off, im OCD bout collecting everything thats cut off it gets separated into fans, bud fans n sugar leaves n popcorn, 9times outta 10 the pile of sugar n popcorn gets picked at first by the wifey, while the rest is drying n curing.

    im a sucker for sissor hash too n i clean clean the nips every so often.
