Seedsman: White Widow Auto Flowering
Medium: Soil - Happy Frog + 30% Perlite
Age: 5 weeks on March 28, 2022
Hey y’all, it’s been a while…
@Nicky @MidwestGuy @HMGRWN @CalamityJane @RandyMarsh et. al - hoping you’re all well!
Here we go…
This here WW-AF caught me off guard and began flowering at 4 weeks after seedling-sprout on Feb. 20, 2022. So I’m looking for some direction as to reasonable defoliation and/or pruning-Lollipop-Schwazzing now that this little girl has begun to flower.
The attached shows fan leaves and possible areas I’ve considered.
How much is safe now that she’s flowering?
I have always suggested no more than 20% total foliage to be removed at one time.
Anybody practice trimming TOP POSITION fan leaves? for slowing growth and supporting lower buds, initially?
Triple-D; Last week I removed the top two fan leaves from a FIM’d Jack Herer AF because they were almost as large as my hand and blocking veg below. I will need to compare the pics in timeline to understand if there was any growth affect.
Thanks, HMGRWN. Glad you’re still around.
March 20 and March 24 pics.
The location of the Temp./RHO gauge didn’t change. Vertical growth didn’t seem to slow down, and the remaining top fans only got bigger!
Thanks for the word. Looking fwd for pictures.
May be FIMing a White widow clone, next week.
Ah, a White Widow clone… Auto flowering girl?
I was considering doing the same (see original pic), but needed to gain a reasonable harvest and haven’t Super-cropped before so quite apprehensive to over-stress her.
White Widow clone with 4 nodes showing female flower pairs/node purchased.
No knowledge or memory Auto Flower term at sale.
Strangely, they clone cups have PH 5.7 and my soils are measuring 6-6.5
They should marry well.
Darwinian planter- I am.
I stress my children and learn from them.
I hope to someday smoke and talk with them.
