    Yup. And that's why I don't even think about how much wet it is.

    instead of weighing wet and trying to estimate how much it will become once dried, i find it more accurate to imagine my flowers drying to approximately half their original size and then take estimates as to how many full sandwich bags i could make from them (one bag being about an ounce). this just gives me a mental picture that i can count. i've been using this silly method for several crops and my estimates are usually within a quarter ounce of actual dried weight.

    I never weigh wet. There's no point. Its too sad lol.

    But generally a quarter to a third of its original weight.

    Plants lose approx 70-80% of their wet weight.

    I believe that knowing the weight differences is only a setup for letdown... I gauge by the dry weight but only in comparison with the previous grow just to see if I have improved in weight. This lets me know if Im going in the right direction to dialing in my complete setup(grow,plants,nutes,temps,humidity,etc).
    Liebig created a picture of a whiskey barrel that was built with uneven planks where as the planks represented different type of resources needed to maintain a healthy plant but, when you try to fill the barrel, spills happen due to the unevenness(deficiencies) of the planks. Which shows the least available resource (weakest link) is where your problem is.

    This is in essence a recipe for success, if you give plants what they need (level planks) you will see a drop in issues with your plants.
