Well, today I decided to bump up my pots a little farther and really get them into the net. I’m at 11+ weeks of veg and it’s getting a bit long in the tooth. Doing this was a bit of work since I had to remove the frame completely, which meant untying what I’d done already, then replacing everything and really being gentle and careful with my colas to get them adjusted to their new horizontal life. Things look pretty bendy and hectic (see the photo) but I can tell immediately how much more light is reaching the important spots. I tucked the big fan leaves below the canopy so that they still produce some energy for the plants but don’t shade things where it’s important.
I’m looking forward to seeing how they grow in the coming days. Hopefully it’ll look much more organized than it does currently. I would call this 50%+ filled, though it’s hard to tell because you’re looking at the underside of a lot of the leaves. Once we get some new growth, I’ll have a better idea. Hopefully I can go 12/12 before long.
