Hello again all. I need a little understanding about what I should allow to flower and what I should cut off. This particular plant has been blooming for 7 weeks now and is not really producing. Last week i posted about this same plant and many suggested it may have went back to veg. After research I decided to put it in a pitch black room for 36 hours in hopes to revive the blooming phase.
It seems it may have worked. It’s been back on a 12/12 schedule for 5 days now and it’s doubled the bud size from the entire last 7 weeks.
I now am wondering if I need to prune these lower buds? From what I have gathered the top cola is the one that produces the main bud. So should I trim off the lower ones? Here is an image of what I am asking to clip and an image of the new growth in the past few days
Little clearer image of what I am asking if I should remove.
If you trim the way you have illustrated you will only have a single nugget at the top.
The top cola or crown of a plant is made up of many side branches.
And it’s not just the top bud that turns into a cola.Most of the lower branches that have already been removed have them too.
Personally I’d let her grow and not take any more off.
Some helpful information.
Just as oldguy stated. Given time and good lighting, they will all join together to create a cola. This is an example. First pic you can see how the buds are separate. The second pic you can see how they’ve all come together.
Don`t remove anything else, on your next grow use LST to spread them out and you will be very happy!
Thank you guys I appreciate the advise. I will leave her be.
