Growing these plants over the winter is such a treat.
They’re the same strain, GDP, but they have very different shapes and canopies.
Have had a couple minor surprises and gotten help here. Anyways, these are at about 7-8 weeks. Do i have them on track?
Looks good. Maybe a little defol for light and air penetration.
Yeah, I’ve been trying to figure out what techniques I can use to help them but from what I’ve read, i should limit training to low stress methods. So, I’ve just worked to bend stalks here and there for a more level canopy top and to make space.
I would pluck a few leaves of take off fingers to allow air and light to get in. Uncover bud sites
Thanks Gregg, can you elaborate? Does plucking mean to break them off with fingers? Do i break them where the leaf stem comes off the branch? Or use shears?
Using shears is much easier and less stress on the plant. Leave a nub sticking out of the stalk. Dont clip too close. As far as fingers, you can cut off just some of the fingers of the leaves.
Check out lollipopping! Plant looks great! Good job!
Echo. Get some alcohol wipes or 99% too so you can keep them (trimmers) clean.
So, just clear out one or more fingers off some leaf clusters to open up the space?
Yes. Or remove the whole leaf if need be.
All the same strain. All different phenotypes
I would probably take like 6 leaves to start and see where you’re at. Something like this:
Course, the forum has made me paranoid to really trim autos at this stage… You can probably tuck others under.
Airflow underneath is essential. Lollipopping as @Jonesy287 said.
Nice grow, I left mine in veg too long
They’re looking good, GDP is a great smoke for sleep and pain.
What happened from staying in veg too long?
@Ttgm i keep in veg about a month, then blew up. a lot of skinny stalks with pop corn buds that’s not getting any light. Ended up clipping most all down, taking up resources for kolos. It is stripped I should have clipped awhile back. But didn’t, now kolos have a gateway with top dressed with ffof now it’s just water and burnt tips. Should have put in flower after lite LST. they are heavy and finishing in hopefully another month. I’ve got some purple kush I can’t wait to get going. I’ve got limbs growing through out had trellis up supporting 1 Bud and it broke the other way had to tie it to the lamp did you see my wooden frame? Made that as a starter will be better next round happy growing
Thanks @Deepsix hoping too finish in about a month
