    I did some stem bending this morning, exposing bud sites. Shiva the big girl on the left definitely needed a little bending to approximate where the other two are. Then I put on the screens, as all plants are getting wide and it would risk damage to wait any longer:

    Here's a closeup of big Shiva so you can hopefully see the colas:

    That's impressive growth since you started this thread 8 days ago!
    Nothing is foolproof for the sufficiently talented fool.

    Switched to 12/12 yesterday.

    They rebelled against being framed and constrained. They howled and cried all night, so I took off the cages today. They heaved a sigh of gratitude and spread out.

      I like the freedom you have given them too. Very lush and green.

      So what is your plan now? I know you were hoping to change things up in this new grow. Conventional tie-down? They do look lush

    #19
    No tie-down: this is a VERTICAL grow, I want to see the colas get taller, so I'm minimally training them. I bend the stems back and forth to give them strength and because they like it, I bend them away from each other, and I'm tucking leaves, exposing the shorter colas. It is different this time because I removed the tie-down thingies I had attached to my net pots, so I have nowhere to tie them down. I'm letting them go free-style with just a little guidance from me. No horizontal training at all.

      Alltatup I think you did a good thing this time around. If I may say abit about my 2 photos I got nearly done. I took the ties off them 3wks ago. Had arms and center trunk strapped down with wire. After removing them at approx. 35days into flowering the arms slowly extended upwards the colas seem to be swelling more without restraints. I figured stretch was nearly over and I had plenty of height left. You may of found the key component on your cola lengths. Just a thought, anyhoo sorry if I rambled. Party on!

      SoOrbudgal I've condluded that in my setup, on my time schedule, less horizontal training is better. My first consideration has to be the limited amount of space I have, so I have to make that work. We'll see how these babies shoot up over the next 3 weeks, and take it from there!!

      Girl, you really need to get a smart phone and post photos.

    No kidding about the phone, i'm going to work out something with a member here to show me how to set this up cause i'm not able to. I'm going to talk with him later. Yes the space I get it. And yes I think what I've noticed with my grow on release is that the harvest time is on track per seed strain info.

      I did some minor floral arrangement to spread colas out in a couple of places. Main colas were all basically good to go on their own--showing, once again, that Cannabis plants are smarter than humans.

        Stacking very nicely, looking like they’re about 2/3 to where you want them....I think they have a little left in them to reach the finish line!!
