Re: To cut or not to cut

I would super crop and then tie the girl down. Not the best option, but certainly better then topping. If you are concerned about the bend shading out the lower plant, a daily 1/4 turn of the container should help light distribution.

Re: To cut or not to cut

If it was me i would cut the center one down to even with all the side branches that are coming up. I would put some rooting hormone on it to thats a pretty plant you got there. that top would make a nice mother for some clones for next time around.

Re: To cut or not to cut

Don't cut it what ever ya do there are other ways first.
Some late LST by taking the top with a string and tying it down a bit.
U can snap or crush the stem and let it hang but still grow.

Re: To cut or not to cut

You could always boost your smaller plants up... if your unwilling to lst or supercrop your larger girl - simple fix without distorting any of the plants

Re: To cut or not to cut

PR if you do decide to LST, which I highly recomend, do it at night or when they are sleep. At this time the stem is more flexible. Also you can stop the water pumps for that night and do it about 2 hrs before the lights come on. Remember to cut the water pumps back on before the lights come on.

Re: To cut or not to cut

if it were mine i'd knuckle it. take it at the level u want it to bend over and twist the main stem (looks like to me that fatty) to the right and then left till u hear the POP then bend her over. if she's growing so fast it will recover in no time and prolly produce a crap load of side shoots and make tons of nuggets!

in fact after looking closer to the pic u could do it to all the ones that u think will be headed strait for desaster. the plant will be fine if u get er soon... like today. lmao.

:Yum
there is a time and a place for it... this is that time and that place.

Re: To cut or not to cut

i would not cut these at all if they are already budding, it will slow them down by a week or two for the harvest. i only top my plants when they r in veg. bend that sucker half way down the stem and tie er off and leave the bondage on for a week at the least. if you have some annoying fans interruptin lower bud lighting clip those too. no more than a third of the plant at a time though. enjoy the harvest
