    I generally top and LST and FIM, but this is dependant on strain, some take it well and some don't

    IMAG2023.jpg How's that for LST. Lol. Armor SI, it's a silica and phosphorus additive. Helps strengthen stems and give durability. As you see they bend and don't break. Great for helping hold heavy terminal colas.

    Here im stressing my lower main stalk by using the bending technique. Once a month I bend the plants so as the lower branches get light and it also makes the lower stalk stronger to support more weight. Yes I know my grow room is rather sparse but it is only a starter grow as I haven't grown in over 10 years and just getting my techniques and supplies built up.

    They look healthy and will soon engulf that space up. Ten years, baaaa, like riding a bike. Keep us posted on growth. Peace . I'm ashamed to say I just cut a bud off of my freeze berry auto as I have no weed and I'm broke. Go figure, I've got 12 photo period regular Cannabis plants going, on week 2 of 12/12, and 4 autos about 2-3 weeks away from harvest. But I got no bud. Lol. Two of my girls are worth at least 5gs. I vegged for almost 90 days and did every type of training there pretty much is on them , there was 3 -20gal girls, but one was a boy. Yikes, waste of hundreds . But he tricked everyone. I've added a pic of freeze berry bud and male berry white(d.j. short blueberry x the white) he will create brand new strain crosses with my chemdawg, my orange cookies, my lost soul Og cross, and a mystery plant, bagseed from a 13 gram cola my boy found. Strain unknown, sativa dominant cross, very citrus and kush in odor, tight internoding, high terp level and fast flowering. Pics are as orders, first is freeze berry bud, then chemdawg monster, than mystery monster, than berry white male. Last is orange cookies clone. IMAG2055.jpg IMAG2055.jpg IMAG2049.jpg

    Take your cuts from as far down on the plant as possible. I let my bottom growth go for a while during LST training during veg, to build roots, and then to cut for clones. The closer you get to the bottom, the more rooting hormones will naturally be there. Trust the busy busy bee. Cut a length of at least 4 inches. Slice at 90degree angle, rub razor blade over skin on bottom where rooting gel will go, slightly to open the skin to allow good penetration of rooting gel. Then stick it into a rockwool starter cube. Place into propagation tray and cover with clear lid. Most as needed based on humidity, at least 2 times a day. Within 2 weeks you'll have New roots. Good day and keep on growing g strong.

    gonna do that exactly like that, bro sorry about the dope, in my country is still very expensive (about 10 USD/gram) but my dealer is the best I've found.
    Your plants are beautiful, I hope I get at least 20g/pot hehe. Thanks on the info see ya, peace!!!

My style Good luck with flowering. Take my advice. Leave lights off for 24 hrs first night of the flip from veg to bloom. It will assure you a good build up of the hormone that triggers flowering. When the plant has enough time to build a good level, sexing and blooming happen by day 2 or 3. You will notice immediately the snap into bloom. Trust the busy bee. These are only exactly two weeks into flower. The first monster is unknown exactly, I know it has lemon haze in it, but it was hybridized with a indica to speed up flower. The next is chemdawg#4. Awesome. Good job dude. Hope to see pics in 2 weeks. That's when you see big changes in pics. Take em every 2 weeks and post

    WELL
    Well good god damn! how impressive is that. It's incredible to me that even expierenced growers do not use Si, to me it is so crucial.

    Absolutely brother.. you ultimately strive for foot long terminal colas, and you want them everywhere. Armor SI is clutch for assuring that they will bend, and not break. Sometimes during flower late in the fourth quarter a humid night and a burst of weight added to big buds you can wake up to snapped heads. And that's terrible. It just helps the structure of your plants. 1460138985209955256855.jpg 1460139025478-251518095.jpg 1460139069792-554441887.jpg 1460139104045875107571.jpg 14601391377221318293943.jpg 1460139162057-274619622.jpg Here's some pics I took just for you all.

    My goodness! look at all those bud-sites! I couldn't have put it better myself, BTW, Si is critical. I also believe that you can predict the eventual weight of the finished plants by the size of her knuckles, which are completely dependent on Si for their formation. Great looking crop there!

    those beautiful plants seem to prove that lst has a great result. Can you please tell me if you can, how much yield should I spect from this 15L pots

    There are many factors in determining the yield. What type of light are you using? How powerful is the light? The strain your growing, how long you veg for , how it's trained, do you supercrop? I mean I see a CFL light in pic, so if your going CFL thru grow, what I see I'd guess that plant will be roughly about 4 ozs. Dry.

    Thank you for the help i hope is not a bother I LST tying the top to the pot, until I get an even canopy, one is white widow sativa75/25 and the other one is sweetdeep grapefruit indica80/20
    Veg 1month under
    8x23w 1:1 2700k 6400k CFL
    3x15w 2:1 3300k 4500k Led
    Greenhouse powder N24P6K12
    Flower 1 week
    Added 1x105w CFL 2700k
    5ml Delta 9 by cannabiogen stimulant
    Greenhouse powder N16P6K26

    Im gonna look for supercrop, i couldnt make seedlings but I hope I can learn for next grow, If you estimate 4oz I think Im going to be very happy:bigjoint:

    I might have given you on the high end if you were growing under HID lights high pressure sodium One 600 watt HPS can produce one pound of marijuana off of one plant now I know that your CFLs and your LEDs are great for growing vegetative growth but you need something more powerful to get a nice dense flowering out of him with lots of trichomes my advice to you is go on amazon.com spend $190 and buy a complete 600-watt system with Cool Tube comes with hangers timer both bulbs everything Apollo Horticulture 600 watt you can have it in 5 days max throw that on top of your plants and you'll really see some power it will only cost you around $45 a month to run it 24 hours a day so if you're following on 12 and 12 you can literally put to 600 and only cost you almost fifty bucks to run them for a month when you figure your flowering. Is going to be about 10 weeks so you figured two and a half months with two 600 watt lights only going to cost you roughly $250 to run it and you can yield 2 pounds from 2- 600s

    In order to pull a pound off of a plant you have to get it a vegetative period of at least ninety to 110 days off of a 600
