1st time grower - help with trimming


#1

@Astrocreep Through all the ups and downs of learning how to grow, somehow I have a plant that’s forming some decent buds. A friend told me that trimming can improved bud yield!Can you all look at the pictures and make some recommendations. I removed bottom branches and actually got some nice clones. What else should I do?


#2

@Greenlantern Is not recommended to trim anything after third week of flowering. You’re going to need all those leaves at the end for the plant to complete itself. Looks great Let It Be


#3

She looks healthy over all i would do nothing except feed and water her as needed
Removal of some of the lower shoots will allow your plant to focus on the top colas but your plant looks thin enough
Best way to increase yeild is training the plant while in veg imo


#4

What wk of flowering are you in?


#5

What size pot is that and strain of plant @Greenlantern
Looks like second or third week flower to me the first two weeks of 12-12 are transition weeks fyi

Have a great weekend.

#17

Hahaha @Greenlantern i wont lie i haven’t watched all of the videos myself only but know there is some really good info in them that explains how a plant works and the need for a dark periods and why etc
If you need anything just tag if i cant answer the question ill get you in touch with someone who can
Happy growing :v:️CB


#18

Just tuck under the fan leaves otherwise if you take them off she’ll starve


#19

Thanks Cowboy. I can’t wait to see how much the Collie yields. I did everything wrong in the beginning. Can you believe I actually thought I could grow in the window in the wintertime? Slowly I invested in lights, tent, etc…very forgiving plant. I now have 2 very happy clones off of her about 3 weeks old and 10 inches and I want to do everything right this time. I will definitely need more advice. :nerd_face:
