Topping auto flower s


#1

Do you have to top auto flower plants. Are they even topable or do you just let them grow the way they want.


#2

Do not top your auto flower! It will stunt the growth. They have a set life span and any stress will slow down that growth. You could get away with some low stress training possibly. Watch a guy on you-tube called NVclostetmedgrower. He’s growing one now and walks you thru the training process and why he’s doing it. He also has a how to grow series that goes from seedling to curing. He’s really good. Hope this helps.

It sure does. I would have made a big mistake. Thanks for the advice

At what stage or do you give an auto nutrients at anytime or at what stage of growth . This auto flower is new to my standards , I’m somewhat ancient to all the new methods , but surely I know how to grow any photosynthesis plant , just never experienced an auto . Suggestion considered on feeding ?

You start giving Auto nutrients the same as all other MJ plants; When you see 4-5 alternating, or true sets of leaves, you have enough roots to begin feeding. I have als0o found that Auto prefer a lighter solution, and I try to keep mine around 800-900 ppm. I went up to 1100 ppm, but the smell change from super sweet to fragrant. Once I diluted the solution down to 900, plant fragrance went back to normal.

Over the past 10 years of mentoring MJ enthusiasts, I have noticed the changing smell during grows. I can tell when seeds develop, because the smell changes drastically. In this Auto grow, I came to the realization that you can smell the plant and determine if you mix is too strong. Weird, huh? Later :slight_smile:

I’ve noticed real robust plants does have a more urgent scent than plants growing slower …I did noticed the change of smell while I was growing feeding lightly to more heavy . Once I found the max feeding not only the growth went into vigorous growth , but it got real pungent .
