A question from a fellow grower:
I’m living in a part of China with a humid subtropical climate. In my rooftop garden , which faces south, I have half a dozen strong, healthy, female plants growing in the soil of the garden bed. The buds are developing extremely well, they’re thick and hairy, with a surprisingly pungent aroma!
Following the instructions in your grow bible, I germinated some seeds in early March, then planted 15 mist promising looking specimens straight into soil.
I uprooted all males as soon as I identified them, although I was loathe to do it at the time…it was in the bible haha. Now I’m glad I followed your advice.
I read your recent article on increasing yield and topping or tipping. At this stage of the outdoor northern hemisphere grow season, should I top a plant? If a plant has grown tall and not quite so bushy, developing a big, long cola or crown bud, will topping it now increase the yield?
September & October are still warm and sunny, so I estimate there’ll be 2 more months of great outdoor growing weather.
I’d hate to make a mistake because the plants are really thriving. Will topping do any good now, or am I better off to leave them be?
