    Indicas form a nice canopy even without scrogging if you top it during veg. But if you have sativas growing alongside, they will be taller and cause uneven light heights between plants.
    To solve this problem, I created an easy way with bamboo sticks to lower the sativas so my plants form a (somewhat even) sea of green

    I did this with my first grow and shared it here but I wanted to share it again to help some new growers see this.

    It only requires some gardening tape and a couple of bamboo sticks for each plant

    At first they will point down like this but do not worry

    They will recover in a couple of days and shoot right back up from the sticks like you see in these next two pictures

    Also here are some pics from my previous grows with the same technique

  2. looking good bro
  3. Thanks man
    It works for sativas but I dont recommend people to do it on stocky indicas.
    All the buds get light and no need to mess around with nets

  5. Love it man I had the same idea but I have been doing it manually through twisting and pushing a couple times a day. Idk if the strain is indica but I have this frisian dew going like that because it is an outdoor strain and I dont want it to overtake my that you showed off this idea I thi k I will have to do it. :)

  6. Brilliant! The Headband x Sour Diesel I'm growing is expressing some very sativa-like tendencies, I think I'll try your technique on it. Thanks!

  7. Make sure you put some tape around the “Y” to prevent spliting of the main body. See my pics
    That way when you open the branches up horizontally, the tape will hold the base together

  8. And as the buds fatten up, the branches that are not tied to the sticks may start to drop

    But you can always gently curl them inwards to support them with branches that are already tied to the sticks. You can see that on my blurple pics. I curled all free standing branches inwards and and interlocked them with the other leaves

  9. this trick will help you carry even huge harvests. the sticks stabilize and distribute the weight evenly
    line up the plants like this (+X+X+) to save space
    that way they all get light exposure

  10. post some pics of it here when you do it
  11. I put the shorter ones on trays with wheels that bring them to the same height the one int back is on a few of them it only about 18 inches tall the others are about 3 ft all are uneven if I put them on the floor. This way I can adjust the height
