Here are the current plants I have in hydro. They have been vegging since Jul 9 and are starting to show some pretty good pre-flowering. I have been pruning and training these since the 3rd set of double leaves breaking the bud off the stem line as soon as they are easily identifyable, lollipopping off smaller growths and removing some larger fan leaves when they over-shadow developing, bud bearing growth. So now I’ve got a very dense canopy developing.
Will using a mesh trellis help any as these plants continue to develop? Right now I planning on starting these plants into flowering in 10 - 14 days or at about 1/2 the maximum plant height the lights in my enclosure is going to permit. I also plan on continuing to crop them back until the colas begin to fill in. Hopefully this will help to maximize what the plants produce as much as possible.
Here’s a couple of pics to show current growth.
Peace and Happy toking.
