GGA auto. Started seeing some pistils so I didn’t want to top it. How does it look? Feedback very much appreciated. TIA!
Looks pretty good to my untrained eye. Keep up the good work
It looks just fine.
@oldmarine thanks! Hahaha Love those shoes and beautiful plants! I got spearmint, lemon balm and lavender all growing in the background. Hoping to make some nice oils and maybe a balm too.
Just finished a G.G. auto a few weeks ago, your gonna love it I never had a 1 hit & quit before.
Karla and I make a tincture. We are going to add some mint to it this year.
The main stem/kola popped up since yesterday so I tied it down some more a little further up to try to even things out.
Also did my first topping on a northern lights photo.
These plants are loving the spring sunshine.
Looking good , doing some LST myself, I normally mainline
Happ Happy BD!
“Finer than frog hairs split 4 ways” is what my grandpa use to say.
Have you grown photos outdoors before?
With the long veg time you could do a massive mainline or manifold on the NL photo.
@beardless this is my first time outdoors with a photo and an auto. Looks like a mainline/manifold is similar to an LST on a topped plant? Essentially, just tie down the two main stems and then top those two and tie down again?
Definitely trying to keep the plants a little more bushier than taller. While I have a privacy fence I don’t need the entire neighborhood seeing some weed trees lol.
Pretty much got it. This is a mainlined plant.
Grow weed easy has good articles / tutorials covering it.
Coco for cannabis also does a great job explaining manifold and mainline techniques.
How to split the main stem like that?
Cut off the top, and what remains on top are those secondary (?) branches that you train to grow outward rather than upward
You gotta top it at the right time though, not too early
Top above the third node to break apical dominance and voila two months later you get the above
Those huge horizontal branches are the two little growth tips you see in this photo. Now you can barley see the stem because the knuckles have swallowed it.
They are supposed to be 6 - 7 nodes tall before topping above the third.
Right I could not remember exactly how many nodes it was so I didn’t specify, I knew someone would know and tell them
Is it okay to keep doing more LST and will it help with more yield? She’s growing back nicely and looks like some branches can be tied down. Is she officially flowering too?
