Unfortunately I didn’t take a before and after.
But what it looks like can be replicated
You can see the “CLIPPED” leaves if you look closely
- my new PC has issues with loading my graphical software, I’ll get on top of that soon
It is also in “MARTIAN” light
- LEFT click the image twice to get the full view
You see the short leafs under the bushing out?
When I saw the remains of the original leaves began getting large - I clipped them again
TINY leaves are hard to accurately clip, so you can wait and clip THOSE leaves once more
And this makes it a closer “FIMM”, even if a bit late…
Anyone done this before? It is a “FAN” leaf, so what the heck…
But I think that a plant like this that is not expected to get over 33 inches tall before budding - you DO NOT do this to keep it small, the reasoning is to get as many “COLAS” as you can
FOUR instead of just one or two
So getting the FIMM to work is essential
And the precise timing? I have no idea
I am not at all sure how old this Amnesia Haze (F)(A) plant is, but it is due to bud soon…
~ I have been tempted many times to change the lights to 12/12 but trusted and let it go. It’s going 18/6 hours and I will keep it there
- I still wonder about adding “WOOD ASH”
- NOTE: I could have clipped the later growth of the fan leaf at the STEM, but I was unsure what might happen so I decided not to risk it. Cutting the fan leaf stem might be a real good idea
But you CAN’T EVEN SEE THAT when they begin to form.
And again - what happens if you do?
It strikes me that it would be much the same result as “TOPPING” so I wanted to leave some LEAFS going on…
PS: Give me your thoughts and notions
UPDATE: I got my software loaded and de-bugged finally
It may look odd - but what I did was shift the color hues to comp for the mars lights
