Hello. Need your advice

I've read many reports, and all growers seem to cut fan leaves before drying the plant. However, my guide says not to do it.

Before the harvest, I trimmed the big leaves, cut the plant, and hung it upside-down. I didn't touch the small leaves near the buds. The humidity level is 39, the temperature is 20ºC. Did I do something wrong?

Should I cut the fan leaves at the next harvest? Will the result be better?

Everybody does it in their own way. I tried both options. I think there is no big difference. Yes, trimming fan leaves reduces the time of drying but makes curing longer.

If you leave fan leaves, the process will take more time. However, this way, they'll fall off themselves. All you'll have to do is cut off the smallest leaves.

well it would be great to know is as long as you harvest the plant you can cut off the big fan leaves and put it in a paper bag for later use (hash,tea,oil etc) which they call shake, other than that you are doing well make sure it has ventalation where u hang it and it is dark and  65-75 degrees farenheight (18.3-23.9 celcius) and humidity 45-55%
