Drying plants directly in the pot, without cutting the stem?

I took 5 plants and stuck them in the back corner of my shop 3 weeks ago. It took 10 days for the plants to deplete the moisture in the soil and start to wilt. That tells me I should have stopped watering several days before I removed them. Since then they have been drying very slowly, still not ready yet, but getting close. I think one more week.

I’m not so sure letting finished plants dry in soil is such a good idea because I have had nanners form when I let ripening go too far.
If nanners pop open you can get seed and I have noticed bud aroma and structure changes after nanners appear,but since I’ve never tried it with plants in the dark it might be a good experiment.
