Nice! Thanks for the in depth reply Mark! Seems like quite a few folks hang dry and then go into brown bags. Must be a reason for it!
I would say it's mainly to get the moisture out or should I say most of the moisture out
Think about it logically mate. If you put fresh cut flowers into a bag your trapping all the moisture in which will cause issue's in my opinion
I just do what my dad taught me and over 40 years I've never had a crop go moldy or rot issues whilst drying. I have growing but never in the drying stage
Anyone who's done outdoor for 2 years+ if you ain't had a rot issue something ain't right
All the best
