Day 60 of some Trainwreck.@greenman
Yup, you can certainly pop the coco pod through to give you more room. The light won’t be too invasive, as the canopy is covering it and I’ve not observed any adverse effects to this point. Great way to give you more room without having to super crop.
Mine happened I believe due to the weight of the plant at one point. The coco pod doesn’t fall into the resevouir, it just gives you about an extra 2 inches and I had zero impact on my plant. Mine dropped down to the first node branches it can’t go down any further.
My plant has stopped stretching now and is at the same height as the white plastic sensor at the back of the unit. I would have had to supercrop if it went any further. I’ll get some pics up soon not near my Grobo atm.
Nah he just wanted a treat. He had 3 legs poor thing
Thank you @Azuri I appreciate the response:beers: Im exactly at the 3" mark from the light, going to push the pod down tonight when she wakes up.
Here’s what mine looks like dropped into the coco pod and the height it stopped stretching at.
Awesome thanks for showing. Nice buds are forming!!
Looks fine @greenman your’re a lot father along then my plant was at day 12 of budding I had no signs of buds at the time. Looking forward to your harvest. Sorry forgot what you’re growing again.
@Azuri, sorry I forgot what I am growing. I started an Amnesia seed, but then when I started I had trouble and that seed went into soil. Thought this was another of the same, but certainly isn’t. Growing as a Generic Indica.
Day 15 or 16 of flower as you can see she is still stretching out growth hasn’t stopped yet … also first sign of pistils are breaking through … so she tugging along nicely still have a bunch of chutes stretching that are getting direct sunlight so can’t wait for those to pop up … also have some big branches in the back that I didn’t get in the shots…
But for the picture with the bunched up leaves in the corner you guys recommend cutting them or just letting them do it’s thing? Confused because the bud sites that they are attached too are flowering with direct light so I don’t know if that would hurt them?
I would chop them off chris but others might have a different suggestion
It’s really your call, (but for me) if they are just fan-leaves with no promising bud sights, then I would take them down to give the remaining buds more energy… In the #BudStage we want to give the Buds a thriving chance…
Cool I took them down … my plant hasn’t slowed down stretching … I was trying to see what it looked like after the stretch was done… that’s when I’ll go in and take off what isn’t being used by a bud site @SilverGrobo
Here’s a current side photo. It had fallen into the water because of its weight, notice how I propped up the coco pod with toothpicks (red).
@Stephen Is it ok to trim the leaves circled in yellow?
Aren’t you supposed to stop trimming at some point? It’s a few weeks into flowering.
I’d say you can remove those leaves. Not getting much light, so they won’t be able to help out much. Keeps the bottom clear of bugs and allows additional air flow. You could also thin out the canopy a bit too. Try to expose all bud sites to the light.
Plant and trimming looks great! If you’ve just switched to flower then your should be good now until harvest time.
