@spyonyou, @Myfriendis410, @hellraiser @MrPeat It seemed time to thin out my tent. One male trashed. Other hopeful females spread outdoors in various ways I’ll cover another time after taking some pics.
Here’s the new group and my first LST work. (While working the earworm song was “I want to tie you up” by awesome blues guitarist , song writer and singer Duke Tumatoe. He’s a hoot in Chicago Blues).
Here’s overalls. At this time I have not topped or trimmed, except dead lower leaves. Open to comments and suggestions.
This is the main bend.
I’m thinking to give it a little recovery time, then top it, just the top node. Considered fimming, but result too off balance I think?
Next question, will I stop too much growth if I right now take off the big top fans that became vertical? Or wait? These are photo flowering so no rush.
Also I haven’t seen anything about taking partial leaves off big fans that are shading newly exposed branches. Does it kill the leaf?
Last, can I transition to 24hr lights at this point? Now running 16/8. Does that need to be done gradually or can I jump it?
I started this off with free seeds and little knowledge and a DIY let’s see what happens attitude. Find I’m getting awfully fond of them and hope not to screw it up. An old softy.
