My outdoor ladies are well over 7,8 feet tall. it’s legal in my state, but I don’t really want to test the limits by letting these go into full flower at this height. (I’m in the city, so smell, neighbors, etc is a concern).
I have a variety of strains. Some are well into pre-flower, some are simply showing maturity with definite signs of pre-flower. I’m about 90 days out from harvest based on my area, lat/long & experience. But I need to give a couple of these plants a serious haircut… like I even thought about breaking out the hedge-trimmers. there just to big.
If it helps, each is in a wire cage, 4’ tall by 3’ wide. they have filled these & more width wise so there will plenty of plant left even if I cut the main stem off at 5 ft (a crying shame really, but got to do something). Each plant has been ‘lollipop’d’ as it grew, & the largest have been topped at least once already.
Looking for experienced growers comments on a severe ‘topping’ /trimming & the late timing.
