    Thanks, i will.

    Last grow, in the 2x3' cab was over 1lb dry: one 8-main plant, one 16-main plant, and three small mainlines that got out conpeted; all in a single 20-gal res under a Kind 750w led. See post 45 in this thread.

    Last grow, in a 2x3' tent was over 1/2lb, dry: four 8-main plants, each in 4-gal buckets, under a Kind 450w led. See post 62 in this thread.

    One of my previously out of control tent girls. Mains are actually 8-10" taller than seen here, but i have swirled them - pulled the tops down, let them grow out, trained them laterally around in a curve mimicking circular training wire below. Strain is Vortex - name is appropos, eh?

    I bet there are at least 50 potential colas on the flat top of this plant, many budsites receiving light on sides and under top layer. With the penetration of 1200w of led 14" away, i can't wait to see what happens here.

    And, there are 3 other plants just like this in the tent.

    Man i love modular scroglined plants on wheels!
     
  3. Creating an even nutrients and energy flow. Destroy the original xmas tree shape. Instead of 1 main cola, you can create as many as 32. It increases veg time by about a week each time you top. Check out growweedeasy.com Manifold by Nebula haze. Combined with LST, you can increase your overall yeild by 40%. Start with amazing genetics and it's happy days. 20171015_113726.jpg

  5. Lookup lightaddict (on another forum) for similar style, but before nebula haze version.
     
  6. Checkout the plants that steakbomb just harvested on the supercloset secret society thread: 2 scrogged plants, probanly 1lb yield, and beautiful, too.

  11. For traditional mainline, you only want to have 1 pair of growing tips remaining after 1st topping. Take out entire node on circled ones OR just the growing tips (not original fan leaves) on next node down.

    Let whichever growing tips you keep grow out 2-3 nodes, then top those so you get 2 pairs of growing tips (4 tips in total). Let those grow out 2-3 nodes and top again for 8 total tips.

    You can go for more, but it will dramatically extend veg cycle.

    For good overview go to growweedeasy.com and search on ‘mainlining”.
     
  12. Here we go again.
