    Bamboo stakes - duct-taped to the bucket?
    This must be one of the reasons I grow in Coco - and a problem I have not considered before!

    Attaching the wires to where is the issue.

    Yeah, they bounce back fast, even from full supercropping!
    I use soft ties - lots and lots of them (had to by a third spool) - but I think coated single strand wire would be perfect if it was good and thick like 6 or 8

    No, just bend them down pretty good. I soften it up right under the nodes and bend it down with more force than LST. Somewhere between LST and super cropping. I take care of the veg room first so by the time I get back in there from the flower room, for the most part, it's like I haven't done anything. I'm going to try wires or ties to hold them in place.
    I had to train the leaves out of the way 😄

    I just found this...
    Are you holding them down when you pinch and bend?
    That is some LEAF!!! Happy looking plants

    Ended up going with 1250 EC to make for the added ppms from using all tap. It's down to 1100 EC but still has a couple more days until a bucket change. I have been keeping the pH between 5.75 and 6.1. It didn't really mind being topped, just kept growing.
    I did get a little heavy handed with the training and broke a lower branch. Immediately I taped it back together in hopes I didn't lose it. It was drooping bad after a day and I almost took the shears to it. I waited though and glad I did, it is back to growing without issue. Any LST I do seems to not make a change, slight pinch and bend down of the branches...nothing. They just keep popping right back up.

    Looking good I will have to read up on EC so I understand it when your talking about EC , those roots look fantastic to

    Last day of this nutrient solution, it's been two weeks. I've topped the bucket off once with the same EC and kept the pH in check at about 5.85. It's at the sixth node and being topped to the fourth. Roots are real white and growing by the day. Tomorrow I will change it out and jump the EC to 1000ish, but not too high....don't wanna stress it out after the topping.

    A few threads from forums and talked to Hanna. It's really all the same just depends on your conversion factor. EC never changes, ppm is calculated off EC.

    Hey Rosetta what info did you read to go to a EC instead of ppm ,I have read a little about it but would like to learn more

    3/23 I mixed a 1000 EC solution from 5 ml each of A and B grow/ 1 gallon. Added 16 oz of it to the bucket to bring the EC up to 850 from 525. Slight curl to one side of a lower leaf. I'm guessing too high pH, I read this strain can be picky about pH and high temps. No problem there since my grow environment is very stable.
