Looks perfect

Looks good.
My rule is this…
Only take half of what you think you should. Cutting helps but too much will slow her down. Just a little then ignore cutting for a while then revist. Only half of what you think you should. That way you leave some and won’t hurt her.

Just my advice. We can always go back and cut, but we can’t glue leaves back on…

Thanks, appreciate the advice and well noted !

UPDATE

What a difference a day makes… Tempted to remove the next largest fan leaves to get light below, as the removal yesterday seems to have had a very positive effect.

I see the light! Is what those bud sites are saying. :joy: I removed some fan leaves also. The bud sites took off. Plant looks fabulous :+1:t2::sunglasses:

Day 25 (early veg 15/21 - extended by one week)

She seems to be very healthy and growing like mad!

At what point should she be topped, once above the first fan?

Five nodes up. Looks ready now? I topped mine around the same time.

Yes have gone ahead and done it now - definitely 5 nodes and topped her.

I assume all good/no issues ?

Looks great :+1:t2:. Those two tiny new ones should start taking off in a few days. I maybe should of let my center get taller but it worked fine.


Four days later. I also as time goes on plan to trim on my water change days. It’s what I’ve been doing. Gives the plant fresh nutrients.

I extended late vegetation a week based on what I’ve seen and read here. Also by the looks of her. We’ll see how she looks in two weeks. Thank you :blush:

UPDATE

Early Veg - day 17/21

She is beefing out significantly, worried about lack of space now but surely will be fine.

Should I be defoliating so soon after topping?

She could use a little hair cut on her fan leaves for sure! Good job on the topping

She’s had a decent haircut, got rid of fan leaves blocking the bud sites and also some spotted leaves much lower down. Hopefully I haven’t gone overboard! Water change to coincide with it today as well.

There was some slight moisture on one or two leaves, I’m trying to get the humidity down, especially before switching to the flowering phase! Average 60% humidity.

Couple more day and she moves into late veg.

Great job on the haircut! Amazing. The moisture on your leaves is likely from condensation from them touching, the haircut was the exact thing you needed to do to help your girl! Good job
