Ok, another day, another decision.
Today is day 60 out of the ground for my HK and SC. They appear to be doing lovely since recovering from a brief stint of 'the claw". They are on a regimen of Jack’s with a weekly supplement of FishSh!t and Recharge.
Slightly better pic of Strawberry, you can see both girls are around 19 inches.
Now for the question. When i started this grow, i wanted 3 or 4 plants. i know that would be tight, but i wanted to FILL every inch. Only 2 seeds made it. i had a few bad starts trying to drop additionals seeds. One finally took but she is only on day 24 out of the ground. sooo, HUGE difference.
She is ready for transplant. i will be moving her (another Strawberry Cough) to a 3 or 5 gal fabric pot today (depending on which i have that is clean).
i would LOVE to keep the other two in veg and let #3 catch up. so far i have been pinching / selectively topping the two larger girls (they are all Photos, so no harm).
i have the beginnings of a nice structure for the big ones. Does anyone have any tips for what else i could be doing to hold these two back to allow #3 to catchup.
I know @Hellraiser and others keep some in veg as long as they like until they are needed. Is this method (pinch / top) the best approach?
Would you even recommend this approach or should i just separate them once i am ready to flip the first two and move #3 to a sep tent till she is ready for the flower tent.
Thanks all! Hope you all are having an enjoyable holiday weekend. I know for us “farmers” there is never a day off.
