First topping to harvest in pictures

I was asked to put something together so this is my attempt at fulfilling that request. The photos are all of the same plant starting with the topping of its main stem to harvest. I hope the pictures speak for themselves. It is simply to show what I did to this NL (its tent mates received the same treatment). It will take a few entries to get them all posted so stay tuned. If you have questions shoot away. I am far from experienced at this but hopefully I can at least explain what I did and why.

It had its cotyledon leaves on 4/8. I pick up the “action” on 5/8, day 31.
@Blackmoon @swaniegee tag who ever you think may be interested


I will pick it up a little later. Until then

No kidding/ Much faster, you can move them and oh so easy. The lighter weight ones are 14 gauge electric fencing wire. I’m not sure but I think the heavier ones are 12 gauge wire

You can see them much more clearly at An auto, three photos and a clone

2ND INSTALLMENT
LST completed between 5/21 and 5/26. The amount of LST and the time was actually quite minimal. On day 55, 6/1 switched to 12/12 light schedule. Between 6/4 and 6/12, where I pick up the photos, just let it grow. On 6/1 she was 9" and on 6/12 grew to 17"

Late 60’s. All things considered I still do most of what I want to do. No more tennis - arthritis, no more basketball - knees, no more ladders or roofs - vertigo. We do what we can do. Wish you well!

Thanks. It takes some time to go through the process but what else does a retired fart have to do.
This is what I do. All of my pictures are taken with a Canon Rebel XTi. I upload and save them to my laptop. Old school. Pull the compact disk and stick it in the reader. It is supposed to have a cable but who knows where that is.
this is the screen that comes up when I open a picture


I use Edit with 3D Paint to enter text and is accessed through Edit & Create in the upper right. When done I save it in Pictures files in the folder location I want.
I believe some use their phones but this subject matter I not something I want on my phone. The other thing is I don’t know how to use it and I am not sure even where it is.

Thanks. Previous grow of Northern Lights. It was a very different approach to what I am doing with my current AK-47s. You have to try things to find stuff out. Have to admit it was a pretty clean grow.
