    Bending

    Is this correct? Was advised to bend as it was too tall. I’ve bent towards the north with ribbon. Don’t want to stress her but want to keep her under the canopy.

    Lookin good to me. I wouldn't change a thing. Next grow you can top your main (tallest middle) once she is about 1/3 of the current size to keep it from getting so tall and it will be more round instead of triangle like a Christmas tree which is how this one is. Not that you did wrong this time it would just keep her a little shorter.

      Really? It feels really strange having tied her like that, are you sure it’s ok and I’m not stressing her out? What will this do to her? Thank you for your reassurance though!

        Bending her over is an actual technique used to get extra light to the lower budsites. You can watch your fan leaves if one or more of them are shading a budsite clip it off light is food for the buds

      tying her over will increase production, if she doesn't break then no stress (or low stress), if she breaks, let it hang there as long as it doesn't break off it will be fine. If it breaks, the broken part will set heavier, as well as the plant growing as it had been topped. Some put aloe on the breaks,

        Hopefully these pictures will ease your mind about manipulating your girl, the big on was crazy tall like yours, now her main top is over 2' away from the center of the plant and that gnarly looking "break" is where I bent it hard at 90° all scabbed over and healed. She is super cropped, topped in several locations, bent, regularly exfoliated, tied, and double caged, like I said somewhere before, they will take A LOT of abuse!

          Believe it or not, I've lost a half dozen branches from her, all of which were 6'+, can't currently tell you where they were.

          Cannabis plants are weeds hence the name weed. They can survive through alot more than you think. When they die it's normally from being loved to death, less is more. Over feeding and overwatering is probably the biggest cause of death
