    Hi welcome to growing. My preference is after transplant. So lots of folks who don't know the sex yet will transplant and just move forward with it till sex shows and this could take a longer period than you think. dalvis when you want to post questions about your grow just go ahead make a new post, call it anything you want make it yours

    Hi all. Just joined the site and I’d like to start by saying thanks to Nebula for posting this it has been incredibly informative.

    My question is can/should this technique be started before or after transplanting? I’m currently germinating some bag seeds in solo cups so that I can determine their sex before transplanting into smart pots. I know this takes a few weeks before the males reveal themselves but I don’t want to start too late on the manifolding technique.

    Thanks for any advice you can provide.

    Same question with regard to a fluxed plant: would it need a larger tent/box?
    the only guys I know of that actually use cfl's(200-300w) for flowering are guys who like flowery buds...lol
    of them its guys who have a very hi problem with molds, preffering not to have tight buds that mold can easy get into
    having flowery flowers(wide petals) means they can easy check and correct any forth coming mold issues

    I like my plants slightly stretched during winter for the same thing ..lol

    good luck

    OldManGrower your plant is still young I would LST and tie it down it's very easy and won't harm your plants at all ( unless you pull too hard ) anchor the back so to hold the base not to pull out of soil as you lean over the top of plant. Lots of pics of how to do this on site. Best one to start with and good luck, you can do it !

    Good advice NuggetMan and this article is easy for all to follow.

    I have used both cfl bulbs and t8 fluorescent tubes. The more cfl's used, the more heat put out, I do know this from using them. Now my t8 tubes are nice and cool, not very much heat output and I can keep them closer to the plants by 3-4 inches with no light burn. You can do any technique available, as you can see, I have topped, defoliated, and tied down my plants for achieving more bud points. This is my latest grow and am into week 9 of flower. My shop lights, I got them at Home Depot and hold 4 tubes apiece. I use 4 of these with a total of 16 tubes for light during vegging time. But as you can see, I do have a couple using cfl's as well as I didn't have enough 2700k tubes for the last light fixture.

    You can do it at any time... but best when your young ones are between 3-5 nodes high when topping and the second set of branches have grown out a bit. tie those down. If your just going to bend them over with no topping, you can do that anytime. The objective: more bud points.

    How late in the vegetative cycle can you bend or top plants? Mine are about 7.5 weeks into the cycle. A assume that this is to late for either technique? When is the optimum time to do these techniques?

    First I'd like to welcome you to the family. And let you know you have chosen a great place to obtain insightful knowledge from a great bunch of folks. You can learn as much as you want talking to the individuals on this site and the site itself is top notch full of knowledge. Happy Growing.
    Now as far as your question goes, as for me I only use CFL's for germination light and a bit of heat and early stage growth only long enough to get my girls big and old enough to place beneath my 600 watt HID's. I don't use CFL's for my entire grow so I'm not the one to speak with on this subject. You should read some of the tutorials and check out the site on different styles of grows, HID,CFL,T5,LED etc...
