Default Stems

How do you guys handle them, do you cut them up and add them back to the shisha or do you fish them out and chuck them in the trash? I personally cut em up and keep em in the shisha but am unsure if thats correct.

normally they're tossed as they taste not-so-good. Forget about correct, hookahs are an exploration. You'll find techniques, ideas, and experiences here which will allow you to find your own way.

I usually pull mine and throw them out.

Although, sometimes I will take one or two larger ones and place them on the bottom of the bowl, and then place the shisha on top of them. Kinda use the stems to create a little cushion of air towards the bottom of the bowl. I don't do this to often though...I mainly just pull the stems and throw em' down the disposal.

I'm in KK's boat - depends how lazy I am that day. Sometimes I cut them up and put them back in - more nicotine. Othertimes toss. I also base it on whether that shisha had a buzz before - low buzz - always go back in. Had a buzz, depends on how strong - the stronger lessens the chance of the stems returning.

I always spend a few minutes to find them and throw them out as they decrease smoke quality quite a bit. A very major indication of a quality blend is one that has few to no stems.
