One of the pics is an example of a growing branch with 2 other shoots starting their own thing. The other is my baby. White Widow in a 10 gallon pot. Feeding nukeheads Uranium veg. Ph is running at 6.2
I do a thing called lollipoping. Just before I put her into flower, I trim off and growth that does not reach 50% of the tallest growth. I remove all the growth on the lower 3rd of the plant. All the little branches and small bud sites.Any growth not getting 100% light will suffer for it. The removal of that growth will redirect that energy to the rest of the plant.
LOL, just making an assumption here, but looking at that sagging 10gal (maybe larger) fabric pot, and the size of the stalk of that plant in the soil it LOOKS like you had just transplanted it to there ? I bet that was some tense, puckering moments of careful handling. Always worry when they’re huge about having to transplant ANYthing but haven’t had that stress of doing it with this “garden variety” yet She looks happy though!!
are there pics of that 15’ behemoth on here? LAWWWD what a TREE and i’d love to see that!! I hope i have that kind of luck from all my bag seed 1st runs. About to post some pics in a few on my thread. I HOPE, MAN do i hope those aren’t “nanners” forming on Amy Lee…
The story is one of which I am actually ashamed. It was mid-September and she was in full bloom. I got paranoid someone was gonna steal her and chopped her way too soon. Still some good bud, but I realize now what I lost.
We grow outdoor. Full season full sun. I tend to trim alittle during the entire season tell about 2 weeks into flower. I have found it beneficial for the following reasons.
Remember. This is simply my opinion and growing style. We all do things a bit different and achieve amazing results.
-Pest prevention: I don’t like any leaf touching the soul. I think this is a great location for creepy crawlers to climb aboard.
-Pest control: With not so thick of a lower base around the soil ect. I find it much easier and effective when I spray for bugs.
-Air flow: It gets hott here. I like to see the entire plant wiggle abit when a big wind gusts comes. (in veg)
-Accessibility: I need an open and clear base so I can water my girls.
-What will grow: Understanding what will produce a nice stalk and what will ‘never’ reach the light.
