Hi all, I am doing my first indoor grow. Two 2’x2’x60" tents with 2000w LEDs, one from Sonofarms, one from Vivosun. I rehabilitated a White-Widow that was sickly when I got the first tent, and now that it’s finished, I am doing my first indoor grow in the tent from start to finish. One tent has Granddaddy Purple, which I just sprouted yesterday, the other tent has two Maui Wowie, which is the subject of this posting.
I germinated them in water on October 28, tails sprouted within a day and a half, and I planted them in coir / worm castings / perlite in a cup the next day.
I transplanted them into 7-gallon grow bags with Fox-Farms Ocean Forest on November 11.
Now they look like this in the pics below. Compared to other plants I’ve grown this year, there is almost no inter-nodal spacing. This seems to be a known thing with this strain, so I’m not worried.
But I am going to do a SCROG, because I need to keep these lower than they would normally grow, because of the 60" tall tent (low-ceiling basement).
I made a screen with PVC and elastic netting. It will be 24" off the floor or 18" above the soil level. Now I am wondering when I should top them, to encourage branching. I am pretty sure I have a good idea on the rest of it, and there’s so, so many postings here with pics and advice (sometimes it’s like drinking form a fire-hose), but I was hoping somebody who has scrogged Maui Wowie can help me with that bit, again, when to pinch out the top to get some more lateral growth.
Or do I need to do that at all???
Thanks in advance,
