@Nicky Thx kindly! The thing is that the result of my FIM attempt didn’t act like a “topping” either as I have one main center cola growing still. I do want to scrog as well further along. So would I be good to go ahead with topping? I did the FIM cut 10/06. I’ll take pics & post in the morning…Oh, they are photos.
Thx much! They are starting to bush out now. Yesterday I started to prune the plant bottom undergrowth. Very sparingly. Figured a little each time would be the most safe. Sound about right? Oh, and I love your username. I am a long time fellow Deadhead.
Very cool!! Looks great. And yes - but I would only remove the old and starting to die fan leaves at very bottom of plants - target ones that would open up a light hole or let air into the middle of the plant - very sparingly now. After you are a in 12/12 bloom light schedule is started - you can remove more of the old fan leaves - I usually take about 5 or so fan leaves from each plant each day until I have the very bottom of the plant cleaned up from the wilting fan leaves. My understanding is that the job of the big fan leaves is mostly done when you get into bloom.
Yeah - and I’ve heard the best thing to do with autos is to let them do their thing. They are already on the clock - so messing with them too much can cut some time off at the end when they are swelling buds
Those look really really nice. Looks like you are getting great new growth. What light are you running? They look like they could handle some more light - but not necessary now. I’m thinking about the end of bloom… They are also bushy - just make sure you have a lot of air moving in the tent. When mine look like that (they do now - Exotic Gelato in 2nd week of bloom and topped) - I struggle to keep the dew off leaves that touch. That can lead to mold at the end. Whats your humidity like in your grow space?
