Ty McLovin- Practicing patience has proven good for my soul. Ive certainly learned more than the mechanics of growing. ✌
Sure Yes I’ll post pic. Its all curing in the tent in my grow room. ( Haven’t sparked any Chocolope either but they were harvested after GDP. )
GDP hanged for 4 days -then just one time of 6 hrs in dryer- jarred -burping daily. And while they aren’t the biggest buds to date ( compared to Fruity Pebbles ) - they are the most dense I’ve grown.
Choco had 3 days dark in box-hung for 5 days- and never saw the dryer at all.

And on the note of harvesting- I’ve now done wet and dry trim. And I’ve read a lot. Like much of growing- there is more than one way to skin a cat. I’ve decided I prefer a wet trim overall- I do see some pros and cons to each.
I’m interested in what you guys prefer and why? Pls and TY ✌

That’s been a great internet debate for years. Do what works best for you. As long as you’ve tried it both ways. I’m actually in between if that makes sense. I keep the leaves to a minimum throughout the grow so there isn’t too much to deal with.

Yeah @McLovin I realized with last grow I had defoliated most and had very little left to trim. Wet is def more sticky than dry trim, it was less enjoyable to me.

Chocolope Cannabis Seeds Feminized
Chocolope, which was originally named D-Line, is a novice grower's dream plant! With a uniquely heavy yield and large heavy nugs, she is extremely easy to grow. This sativa heavy plant likes to grow tall so beware if space is an issue, however she can grow out with a little training.
We chose to cross our Original Chocolate Thai female with the Cannalope male, and then started backcrossing this to achieve a shorter flower time and still retain some of the Original Chocolate Thai qualities. What makes this strain so special is that when you enjoy her you taste that chocolate you've been missing from the 80's! The Chocolope is the "ONE"! Not much haze, but you don't need it.
