First Grow Journal! Bruce Banner, Gold Leaf, and Auto Sour Diesel

Hey dudes! Ice Sheets here. I figured I would start and official journal. I love advice.

Bottom tent: BB and GL
Top Tent: Auto Sour D

Questions:

  1. Are these girls ready to be topped?
  2. How long after tipping can I start doing some LST tie downs?

Looking good. I’m set to watch. As far as topping and LST, I top mine at when get to 5th node and then tie it down from top of plant where it is essentially running horizontal. I did this training on my first 2 grows and was pleased with results. I’m not experienced enough to say if it is a good idea to do it this way or not. Good luck I’m on board. Keep the updates coming.

Hey you should tag some people in. Get some more experienced people on board. I know that there are so many threads that people are following it’s easy to overlook and miss some new ones.

Sweet setup brother. I growing Bruce banner myself. Like whoever said top at 5th node, that’s what I do. Tue it down like a candelabra and you’ll be good

I followed the ILGM Grow Bible, you can download it from the home page I believe. I wanna say it was once it grew the 5th or 6th node, top at the 3rd node (above the 3rd node). I topped mine twice before I started to LST. But the grow bible gives pretty good direction

I’m curious about what type of light that is?

@SeaSeaside_guy1 The top tent is a sunraise led light. The bottom tent is a bestva reflector. Both are full spectrum leds. Once the girls get old enough I will toss in my hps light.

Was just curious, Looks like you have the light covered. I saw the LED and some people run to short on light. But you got it covered.

@SeaSeaside_guy1 I was actually surprised how well these plants respond to these blurples. Great lights for early veg in my opinion.

Update! Day 32. Today I topped the front two plants as well as the side plants in the smaller containers. I decided to not Top the back two plants and just bend them over to the side. I plan on doing some LST to the other plants as well but I am curious to see what the difference will be in topped plants & LST vs. natural plants and LST.

Questions:

  1. First time doing some LST training. Does this look about right?
  2. How long should I continue to Veg these plants under my Bestva 2000 reflector?
  3. When should I take out the LED and put in my 1000 watt HPS?

Peace,

Sheets
