Fimming With My Blaze: A Complete How to FIM Guide

Tsk tsk.. Thats basic plant biology.. auxin travels downward from the apical meristem inside the topmost shoot.. Auxin tells a plant to grow for main height dominance.. Alter that signal, and more growth energy will be diverted to secondaries.. In the case of topping/FIM all energy is diverted obviously, but LST works on the same principle.. Uncle Ben has explained it fairly well in his thread a few times... I definitely have a bit more reading to do! I do love it when people take the time to actually LEARN at the academic level about growing. Good shit M8!

This is abbout the finest thead in english OR german about that lovely technique FUCK I MISSED.

We believe that it is so called because of a grower who just missed the common LST method and learned that his "mistake" brought him even more branches :clap:
Lovely, aint it?

And just like Ahzweepay allready said, this thead totally takes the mystery out of this topic, now i am going to try my own luck :weed:

Thanks a lot!
Very impressive thread goin on here, I dig on the photos you good folks posted man! Ive done this with my Widow (Mr.Nice) weed my last 3 outdoor grows and it knocked me over when Id walk into the jungle to check-up on them an their like freaking out everywhere man. A definite technique for the creative tokers. PeaceMan!
Thanks M blaze, This helped!

Question is, will this be good for a Blueberry auto?

Cuzz kalen2 says no. :-| Maybe ill just remember this for one day when I make a proper grow room with non auto plants and lots of clones *mad hysterical laugh*

I just ran an experiment on this for the specific reason to find out what does better. I FIMed one and let the other just do its own thing. Yes, the FIMed one has a couple main colas but its nowhere near the weight that the regular one has. FIMming seemed to really stress is to the point where there was hardly any growth for a week. I would say the best thing is either a little bit of LST or just let em be. I've heard that a lot of autos don't react well to trims so make sure you research the strain before you make a decision.

ok so i have been growing for some time and never heard of FIM until i read this thread. i have always topped them and had great success. Once i read this i decided to give it a try on 36 clones i had just put into 1 gallon pots. amazing results and on my first try i managed to get 30 out of 36 to sprout 4 tops instead of 2. Let me know what you think. And thank you so much for this great thread and two green thumbs up!!
