Okay, I’ll check back later.
I know. 1st. Grow. I didn’t know any better. I do now thanks to SWSVIC. Can’t let it grow past the bottom of the top fan.
Awe so Grobo is saying- “let the plant grow into the 2nd fan” . I was wondering where everyone was getting that from.
I don’t believe it’s grobo that recommended it first (if at all). It is a common recommendation from champs here on AG as a majority of grows were yielding such low amounts due to small plants caused by following recipe timeline with no extension for growth. I am sure that they all understood that you must read your plant in order to make the best decision on when to flip to transition/flower. However, it is much more simple when offering advice to first time/novice growers to just give a hard target. The recommendation to me was: “Extend late veg until Sativa/Sativa Dom plants reach bottom of second fan and Indica/Indica Dom plants reach the top of the second fan”.
Hey brother any ideas how I stop the stretching she’s at transition day 9 of 14? First-time grower afraid to crop and lollipop too much
That happened to me on my 1st. Grow. I had to defoliate the plant by removing all the fan leaves in the middle and on the bottom of the plant. Some near the top also
Hey @Buddy can you send me a pic showing your entire plant brother. Give us a better idea of what’s going on in there. From the pick you posted it looks like there is plenty to remove down there. With that and some super cropping we should be able to slow it down and eventually stop it.
Not sure if you got my email reply so I’m posting it here after some amateur sleeping last night I ended up adjusting my grobo from the transition stage to the flower stage because of the stretching I was seeing should I turn it back? Here’s a pic of the lady in question! I know I’ve got some cropping and some lollipopping to do please advise appreciate you20200810_075203|375x500
If the plant were mine here is what I would do:
- Leave it in flower do not go back to transition.
- Remove all branches they are not within 1 foot of the top of your canopy (cut them at the main stem)
- Remove all leaves below the second fan.
- Wait 3-5days to allow recovery and see if she begins stretching again.
- Super crop all branches that are within 10” of the light at the 10” mark and tie them down using magnetic hooks and plant ties. Crop them away from the center and organize them in a way that gives the most light to all of your bud sites.
- Wait another 3-5 days and trim off all fan leaves that have stem longer than 1” throughout the entire plant.
Here are a couple of tutorials that I recommend you read in their entirety:
Also, tell us about your genetics, what strain/breeder?
Hybrid Girl Scout cookie thank you for the advice I’ll get to Cuttin in a few more days I did some thinning last night don’t want to shock her thanks again preciate you
Just use your Grobo supports that works for me!
Or you can also drop the coco pod down into the tank at this point to gain some space!
Hey Brother should I be trimming more leaves off at this point appreciate your expertise late flower stage 25 days to go
I would get rid of the big fan leaves on the top of your canopy as well as the big fan leaves just below the canopy. Your plant is wasting energy on them. Do not trim the small leaves coming out of the buds. Or the small ones at the base of the Buds. Your plant needs them to grow the Buds. Make sure none of the leaves are blocking the light from getting to the Buds just below the top.
I would leave her alone at this point, your top leaves don’t seem to be blocking and there are very few leaves left on.
Let her do her thing!
Am I growing a runt here? she’s 21days old today …20200827_182330|375x500
If your plant is 21 days old, that means it should be in day 11 of early vegetation. Just keep an eye on it for now. If at the end of late vegetation, it is still small, you can always extend the grow cycle another week. Keep in mind that when your plant goes into transition stage, it will stretch and get taller. Post another pic at the end of late vegetation, so we can see where your at.
No runt here!
However I’m concerned about the yellow/dying leaves you have on the plant.
Please remove anything dead and keep area clean and dry.
