    Manifold grow

    Who likes manifold growing? My very first indoor grow was under 2 flourescent shop lights, a total of 4 T8 bulbs 4 ft long. I revegged, cloned an outside plant and grew 2 small manifold plants. I have not done it since, and I now have a few different light setups to grow under, including the original T8 bulbs lol. I have time, space and seeds soooo why not. These 4 were germinated 35 days ago. 5 days ago I topped them to the 3rd node and removed the first 2 nodes. Today, I am happy with results. Hopefully at least 2 are female. I plan to veg under LED but flower with HPS. They are currently in 2 gallon air pots, with a soil and coco mix. First picture was day after topping, second picture today.

    my 1st attempt at it..I messed up by actually clearing out the very 1st node i should have left alone ..it was a I can't believe I just did that moment but it worked out ok and ended up with 10 mains instead of 8 like I should have... telling myself it's a happy mistake lol..will definitely be doing it again

        Last day of being lazy for this bunch. The one in the back I posted a close up of a pre flower that shows male traits. The 2 in front show female traits, the 4th was culled for ball sacks. Timer is set for 12/12 starting tomorrow, which is day 49 since breaking soil. This is a fun grow, but hoping for at least one pretty female that produces well for its size.

          Is it still considered a manifold if you leave all the bud sites and armatures?

            28 days tomorrow morning. It has a smell totally different from Gold Lemon mother and Sour Diesel father. Fruity and sweet with a funky sour smell lingering in. Pot is 2 gal air pot for reference on size. The 2 tall colas are 14" apart. I expected more mass at this stage. Maybe not genetically worthy of keeping, will know in about 50 days.

                Still looking beautiful. Not a typical clean trained manifold but I like it

                  Woodsman67 I had a mutant seedling that pretty much looked like a manifold. It looks similar to yours however, I did not train the plant to grow low. I let it "do it's thing" and now am soon to harvest. I did top on side. Fasciation is the thread that will have images. your plants look lovely and healthy.

                    Day 50 of flower. Today is last feed and water, I have been feeding molasses only last 2 feedings, today is same then I will allow it to basically dry out for 7 days then harvest on day 57. I think it would be better to let it go another 2 weeks, but empty jars by then. Trichs are cloudy, pistils are mostly gold colored. It will be early but should be ok until its siblings can mature

                      Out of 4 seedlings I started this with, 2 were male 2 female. only one female had characteristics typical of the mother of this Gold Lemon, mother, sour diesel father cross and that's what I wanted to see. I cut it one day earlier than planned, due to a roller coaster of health related issues I may not be able to do it tomorrow. So its early, I still have 4 of its siblings in flower, 2 of which carry the same characteristics so we will see what 10 weeks and maybe longer does for the flowers.
