  3. Thanks. Do you know if I should tie down the fan leaves at this stage, or if its necessary to even do?
  4. Depends on what you want to do with it. Are you vegging for a large plant? If so I actually think it's a bit early to tie down.

    If your looking for an auto sized plant ID let it grow some new tops so you get more of an idea as to how they'll grow out.

  5. Can you explain the difference? Sorry I'm an amateur haha. I'm looking to have multiple colas, not sure what to really do.
  6. Im a first time grower and I am still actually on my first grow :p. I am only doing 1 plant but I have lst'd it throughout its whole life. Your doing it right so far lol :). If you are looking for multiple colas, I would suggest topping your plant. You can find topping guides everywhere, its pretty simple. But what do I know? I'm only a newbie :)

    For my 2nd grow I am thinking about doing a small scrog grow with 2 plants. I want to veg them under cfl's, I think that will allow the plants to stretch more. I had vegged my plant under a 300 watt full spectrum marshydro LED panel. I think it may be because I had the light a lot closer to the plant than the recommended distance was, but in 1 and a half months of vegging, my plant was a lot smaller compared to others.

    Stupid me, I was poking around her when shes in the flowering stage, I pulled on one of her weaker branches, and I kinda... ripped it off :/ DSC_0034 (3).JPG Poor baby, she should be fine though :p
  7. Wow looks amazing for your first time. So should I top ASAP or wait a couple of weeks? Also how many times can I top. Wish I had a light setup:bang:
  8. by the looks of your picture, your first set of "true" leaves are already grown on your plant. I would top now. How many times you can top is up to you, You can top once to make 2 main colas or some people prefer to top it twice to make it symmetrical again.

    Here is a "scrog" tutorial. You may or may not want to read it. But in this tutorial he talks about topping your plant for a scrog grow. I dont think this topping guide is specific to scrog grows because you can top a plant even if you are not doing scrog. LBH's Famous ScrOG Tutorial | Grow Weed Easy
