Just transplanted from soil to my grobo (experiment)

Comparison shot this is when the shock hit her badly she spent most of fhe week like this after the transplant … but from the pics from the previous post you can see she is coming out of shock nicely

@Osage those bottom most fan leaves is what I’m asking if should cut off
@Stephen

I’d ‘leaf’ them be for now. Cutting them will increase the stress and they are still nice and green. They will be helping more than hurting now.

Thanks @Stephen could you pm when I move into flower ?

Amazing how this plant bounces back and literally this strain is retired I’m hoping I can pull a clone soon off it to keep it going …

Hey @chris_barfield,

This is really going to shock you, but I’d need a ticket to support@grobo.io to assist in this request. With so many growers online, it’s impossible to track individual requests on this forum. Please send in a ticket and I’ll be glad to assist!

Best,
Stephen

@Stephen @Azuri @rainstorm3 question what actually happens during the transition phase? Change in light spectrum or light on/off times? Figured anyone who’s completed a grow or is in flowering could tell me ?

Hey @chris_barfield,

Nice question! Basically the transition stage is the beginning of your flowering period. Your lights will change their timing and their spectrum. They will now be on for 12 hours and off for 12 hours. The spectrum changes from predominantly Blue to a bit more Red focused. The plant will enter it’s stretch period where it will shoot up and double (or more) in size. This stage is usually a two week stage.

Hope that helps,
Stephen

Now my friend. Watch a couple vids on YouTube and get er done lol. While you’re at it watch a few on super cropping, it’ll come in handy in a month or so

Morning @chris_barfield,

As @Osage states, you can lollipop now and research and perform super cropping in a couple weeks. To briefly review for all:

Lollipopping is taking away the lower leaves and branches that are not getting full light and will produce ‘popcorn’ bud or ‘larf’. This isn’t the best bud and often not as ripe as the rest of the plant. We remove this before flowering to concentrate the plant energy on the big buds up top.

Supercropping is pinching, twisting and bending tall branches down to a 90 degree angle to allow for upward growth of the nodes and really helps with height and space management. This is a great tool to use if you are getting too close to the light, it will help avoid burn.

Looking forward to seeing some flowers!

Best,
Stephen

@Stephen thanks for the Info did a bit of trimming but it was hard to get in there with the knee Injury… lol

Anywho do you think I should top again? I think I’m ten days out till transition so I figured if I should do it, it should be now ? Plant I believe has been out of shock since Sunday… the branches on the bottom are growing and so are tops. Plant looks really healthy and peeked down below for the first time and I see a bunch of new white roots…

What are your opinions should I top again or leave her alone ? And if should top? Where and what should I top? @Stephen @Azuri @Osage

You’ve topped once? If you go to into flower in 10 days you can still top now.

Here’s the topping refresher :point_down:

By the pics @Azuri which one would you cut ? Could you cut more than one or would that be bad ?

If you topped once, that means you topped the main centre cola. Now that should have split into two colas. So if this is the 2nd time you can top the two of them resulting in four colas when it grows. If you top again this is “HST” and your plant will need some recovery time. You might have to push out flowering for a week since your plant suffered transplant shock too so not sure if you added time for that? Seems a bit small in the pics to be going into flower imo. Your call growing is prettty flexible in veg.
