    Hi all n salutations :)

    Advance planning for post-harvest : how do you look after / maintain the mother plant until the next season?

    My babe is OG Kush, outdoor, 40litre sack. Looking forward to it filling out over the next 6 weeks, would like some advice on maintaining her until next season?

    Look forward to hearing from :peace:

    Don't cut off all the larf. Leave a third on. Uh- give her more than 12 hours of light somehow. And thin the sprouting branches a little. Otherwise you'll end up with a hairy mess.

    Probably give her a nitrogen feed too.

    It's only my first time revegging a plant. But, that's inside.

    Appreciate it - same same - first time too

    12 hrs is going to be difficult - in northern europe - be like 8hrs or so in a few months. Kinda tempted to let nature take its course? Kinda like letting trained by nature ?! Do chime in if that's totally unreasonable!

    If you don't get it under 14+ hrs of light after harvest, it's going to die outdoors. If your winter temps drop below bellow 40, it's probably going to die.

    You could take some clones and keep them indoors under low light till next year.

    Sweet thanks for advice!
    Got a few cuts that have taken root/started growth.

    Forgive, another noob question..!
    So once the cuttings are growing strong, simple maintenance? I ask as I took them just as flowering begain to show when I trimmed mother back, they're not gonna start flowering/budding simultaneously with mother? Or will they remain in veg ?

    Again your advice and suggestions most appreciated!

    As long as the clones are getting plenty of daylight hours. They'll stay in vegetative state. They'll kick off flowering again when they're getting 12 hours of uninterrupted darkness.

    Don't try flowering unless they've started growing a fair bit though. Otherwise you'll get stuff all from them.

    The bigger the roots the larger the fruits... or more of them rather.

    Cool, yeah not eager to flower them, haven't got the setup to monitor/maintain them to get those crazy buxom buds from a plastic party cups you see in pictures !

    So you have the cuttings indoors under lights then?
    What does your current setup look like if so?
    And are you planning on keeping them until next season or something?
