TRAINING DAY 2
After a few hours this is how your plant should look now.
Note: Time of recovery varies depending on the amount of light you are using I am using a 9,000 lumen output t5. If you are using a H.I.D you should see recovery in about 1 hour.
We shall continue more soon!
After a 1 day or 2 days the plant's top should be overgrowing the lower nodes again. As seen below.Note
: Always give the plant ample time to recover from the training and start growing vertically again towards the light.
Well since the plant is starting to over grow the lower nodes I always decide to top her early and keep all the nodes leveled out evenly. I topped her 1 set of nodes below the top of the plant so that way the plants canopy will be even.Note
: You can decide to top later on if you would like, But it is not ideal to top later on because the lower nodes will not grow out evenly. The plant will also get to vertical if you don't top early. If you decide to top later on anyways, just make sure you are controlling your vertical growth and allowing the lower nodes to grow evenly.
Now as you see I topped her to keep all the growth level and give the lower nodes a chance to catch up with the upper growth and also so I can create more bud sites.
Now it is time to add 2 more elastics to completely even out the plants growth. I like to tuck the fan leave stems under the elastic so that way only the new node growth grows above the elastics. Once the nodes are grown out more I untuck the leaves.Note
: When training down the plant's new growth with elastics be very careful and aware of where you place the elastics you can end up accidently smothering new growth.
We shall Continue more in a few more days.
