    Here's what I did, even did the broken branch. Seemed sturdy enough to at least get it started. Bottom two branches are for clones. That's if it is a female, don't need to clone a male

      lets see if I can explain this tywraps get some short and some long make little loops with the short ones then slide them on the long ones then attach the long ones around the top of the bucket you should be able to slide the short ones to where they are needed thin tighten it up , I usually drill holes in the sides and attach the tywraps to the bucket but you want to maintain darkness so this should work

    It's been a little longer than I wanted for an update but oh well. It's growing well, about 15" tall. When I did the change (week 4) last time the EC was 1550 but now it's 1400. For the change (week 5) tomorrow it will be getting a 1750-1850 EC.

    The one in the middle. A little lst every night and I have to lower to pH just about every night as well. I trained the top branches and came back the next day and the main trunk had split. I tied it together with a soft tie for power cords. The branch I broke is just starting to grow again.

    According to nebula, the stipules crossing on several locations is a good indicator of a female. No pre-flowers yet

    Branches are getting asymmetrical and starting to show it's true colors. Changed to 2000 ec, a little higher but it didn't care. I think it grew an inch, at least, in 10 hours!

      It's looking happy and healthy! At it tallest point it is about 20" but a solid 30" wide. All the major branches have really beefed up at the main trunk. Secondary node growth has sprung into action as well.
      (Let me slide a question in here while speak of these)...it's the secondary nodes that I strip off of the trained main branch, those and the leaves all the way up to the third node from the top? That's the defol I am seeing that makes the towers of buds? Haven't ventured from the net yet and want to try this out. Also don't want to decrease my yeild with a stupid move...so want to make sure first.
      Still no real definitive answer on the sex yet, pre-flowers kinda poked their heads but haven't finished. I might have to give this an additional week to see....still a little LST every day and no complaints about the healthy increase in nutes. Topped it off once with a gallon of nute solution to keep it at the 2000 EC. For a plant that doesn't supposedly like high pH, it sure likes to raise it up a lot. Next change, in two days, it will go into a 5 gallon bucket. Maybe a slight increase in nutes nothing substantial. Need to decide what I am flowering it under. It is going with the two PExWW to the left of it on the floor.

      Rosetta its lolly popping and yes thats how you do it from the main truck i remove all little veg growth and on each branch I take to two three nodes unless the node is growing very fast most will be small this is a picture of a plant I just finished lolly popping hope it helps

        After establishing my manifold structure I have 8 colas. I take almost all the branckes that grow on the first 6 nodes, usually leaving one at about the 3rd-4th node on each. The majority of the branches that stay form during the stretch.
        I clip the unwanted growth tips as soon as they form because that is less upsetting (to me... and probably the plant)

        I just harvested one of my manifolds I think I should’ve removed more growth tips. I left quite a bit thinking more branches means more bud. But on most of those branches it was tiny buds with a small cola on top I think my main buds would’ve been bulkier and less time trimming smaller buds. Next grow I’ll remove the first 2 off the second node for sure. It does look like under the hps this is less of an issue than under the smaller led. We’ll see when I harvest the ones under the hps.

      #21
      I wish I would’ve done one leaving them and one taking so I could see a good side by side. I think the lighting plays a big role, my 1 450w equiv led obviously is going to produce smaller buds than my 600w hps. With your lighting you might have better results on those side branches.

        Start of week 6 tonight. 55 days since being being placed in the towel. Backed off the nutes a little in hopes to let the PExWW catch up. 1900 EC in a 5 gallon bucket. More pre-flowers have formed and fairly certain it's a female, still don't see pistils though. I think I'm going to use my two 100 wattish cob rebuilds (226 watts total). That should cover three plants in a straight line.

          Re pistils, how long have they been on 12/12?
          Re EC, you backed off to 1900! What had it been? I’m putting in EC about 1200
          Plants look great!

          Still on 18/6.
          It was at 2050 but you have to subtract the tap EC which is 450. It's rocking for sure, especially since the new probe and new meter. Everything really, all the plants are looking much better.

          OK, that sounds within reason. And it certainly does look rockin!
          If tap EC is that high, I would be careful with just adding it on. I have seen several refs that suggest the upper range for that adjustment is 300. So even if you are starting with 450, you should only subtract 300. The thing is you are balancing needs for nutrition through diffusion and ability to drink through osmosis. If the EC is too high, (and I think 2000 is always pushing it), then plants can't drink effectively, irregardless of what exactly is contributing to that 2000 (tap crap or nutes).
