Have you cut light back yet?
Not yet. I'm doing some fiming. Next week I should be filling out the net. So maybe 2 weeks?
Shouldn't have any issues filling it.
See these big fans growing over each other? Should I trim some of the blades back (snip blades in half)? A few are laying partially on top of each other, but there's a lot of circulation in there making the girls dance.
They're growing like Jack's beanstalk!
Hopefully others chime in as I have never done a scrog, I grow em quick and no time for training lol.
What size light do you use? I'm asking because as I'm looking at how mine are growing, it looks like it might be kind of tricky tucking or weaving branches through a screen. Some of the fans are huge! With this strain, maybe I'd be better off supercropping, LST, and bottom-up pruning. They're Headbands, so they've got significant sativa in them.
I have 2-600's running for flower and t-5's for veg. I just ran headband from HSC.
These are 3 weeks from seed and yup fat leaves lol.
Man, those look nice!!!
I've read that Headband has low to medium yields. How have your's been? I also read that there are two strains of Headband. One that's more sativa and one that's more indica. Looking at the huge leaves (opposed to spindly leaves) on both of our grows has me thinking they are more the indica Headband.
What do you think?
Are your's real squat like that because you vegged under a t5, as opposed to a 600w MH like mine? our's look so different from each other. I just dropped my light so they stop stretching and fill out the little topped ones. I had my light around 20" above the canopy. It's around 14" to 16" now. I remember, when I last grew, getting my ac cooled light real close to the canopy. I bleached a few tops here and there LOL. I'm going more conservative this time and work more on the coverage. These girls are 16" to 20" tall. If I wasn't scrogging, I would have flipped them already. I'll probably flip them next week and squash 'em with the net.
Who is the breeder? And yes I think mostly indica.
I'm not sure why the difference but I do have great luck with the T5's and have used MH as well. Yours do seem to stretching more. The grow turned out nice but I would not run it again, I'm a picky mother fucker lol. I'm thinking of running chemdog next but not sure, it's a tough choice but need to choose soon as it's getting close
Here is a few more as it was finishing
I didn't catch the breeder. These were cut from a clone. I picked her up from a local dispensary, grew her enough to take some cuttings, and that's what's in the tent. The mother from the original clone is flowering outside.
I'm pretty picky myself. I really wanted GSCookies or Gorilla Glue, but that's what they had on-hand. I'm going to work on my collection of mums, from seeds, over time. I want to have some of any one of these: GSC, LSD, Lemon Kush, Blue Dream, GDP, Gorilla Glue #4, Jack Herer, Green Crack, and WW. I'll start ordering seeds in a couple months. I probably won't have even half of those, but those are the one's I like.
This is Lucy, my outside (day)/inside (night) Headband. She just started week 4 of flowering. The sativa version of Headband is supposed to flower for up to 10 weeks. I don't know what the indica is, but I would bet it's less. I'm trying to guesstimate how much she's going to yield. She's either got 5 or 7 weeks left, depending on the strain. I didn't have much time to train her. I topped her early on and did some LST to spread her out. I spent about a week defoliating her, so those are mostly flower leaves. She drinks between 1 1/2 to 2 gallons a day. She gets full-day summer sun (don't know if that's good or bad lol). I had to keep her slim to be able to fit through a couple doors. She barely makes it with me moving a couple branches inwards
Anyone want to start placing bets on the yield?
Do you remember the yield?
No lol. I don't weigh as a rule, but it was probably 17 mason jars as that's how many empty ones I had, just filled with my auto's I just put away . That's a beautiful plant, my outdoor ones are all hidden in the forest lol. i have no clue what each plant is other than there are 4 different strains, girlfriend didn't keep track when I had her transplant from trays to cups lol.
Hmmmm...I tried to bend some branches over on the plants on the left side, by twisting the branches between my fingers. I must have been doing it too hard because I ended up supercropping all five branches
No biggie. I was planning on supercropping anyways. Brought my screen down to support the bent branches a little, then did a little tucking and weaving. They're already looking up and supporting themselves. I'm probably going to start flowering towards the end of the week. It's not going to take much for these to fill out the screen.
well that's a bummer. Oh well they will be fine but, and I'm no expert as never done it lol, but perhaps you should have started tucking smaller tips and move the screen up a bit, it's going to start stretching and will double its height. You'll be weaving the branches like a basket lol. Again I know shit about it, I'll watch yours progress though as I may try it at some point.
I had never just bent them in the past. I always supercropping or trained them. Really, if I hadn't watched a couple YT vids on bending, I would've supercropping anyways.
Yeah, the screen is sort of low. I might raise it up a little and do some more weaving. I'm probably not going to be trying to fill in every little space. I'd probably have to add another week of vegging. I'd rather just finish them up sooner and get a new batch going.
Just went outside with my lux meter. I'm only getting around 35k because of all the forest fire smoke!
You in California?
