What is a yo yo?
I use yarn but my yo-yos came with two hooks. I am definitely confused unless you turned each 180 degrees to support the branch/cola from both sides?
What is a yo yo? ditto @Flitme
It’s up there those are yoyos
You mean ?
No look at the picture the guy posted. There the yellow hook things that hold branches up so your plant doesn’t fall over.
Oh so its just a string to the rafters and a yellow twisty tie then LOL! I thought it was an actual YO-YO @DebbieM thanks for the explanation and screenshot…LOL Hell I guess Im yo-yo in before I even knew wtf it was…(Im outdoor) My colas were getting/are getting hella fat and branches were bending,one or two broke…So I used the outdoor umbrella poles we have to string up all the branches so that they wouldn’t break!! I was mad @ myself for not knowing or thinking about supporting the branches ( Ive had friends grow for years outdoors and never seen them use any supports but anyway) Next year its support and silica I will be ready!! Thanks all!
So… The yo-yos I bought, have a small spool of retractable fishing line with 2 of those large yellow “hooks” on the end that can hold up a couple buds/colas each if the bud spacing allows. They look like this:
Push the button in to lock, or the other direction to engage the spring and retract the line. The original question was about how to hang them. I used paper clips through the hole you see.
No twist-ties. Just hooks that go gently around the stems.
Oh yes that’s a yo-yo!! Thank You.
I thought I invented that myself with my elastic for the LST, then I just logically took it up when I got buds that were bending over. Necessity being the mother of invention.
It got toward the end where I just did a double wrap around w/no knot.
@Newt …Prize goes to you for the best explanation and pics…THANK YOU! I think those will work great for me outdoors next year?.. LOL "twist-ties was sarcasm
Good luck, and happy growing!
I still don’t know when to use them. I have kolas however the branches seem to be holding them just fine so I don’t know to use these things
Interesting about the fans do you want your plant moving because of the fan or just air in the tent?
I only add them after they are falling over. so if they never start. It never happens
- The plants need fresh air
- The moving air helps prevent mold and bud rot
@Budz is right. If the buds don’t get heavy enough to bend the stems, you won’t need to support them otherwise.
Oh, and while you can’t see them in the above pic, I have 3 fans. The one at the bottom is pulling in fresh air. And then I have one on either side of the tent that blows across the plants for the circulation.
