Was wondering if anyone has a good resource for specific and demonstrated techniques for increasing the size of the canopy and to improve yields? Like an illustrated book or videos. Let me know? Thanks. Im just 24 days in but want to be on top of it.
Topping her will multiply bud sites, and thus your canopy. YouTube topping, and then lollipoping. That will get you started.
They talk and show some information…
Are you bending the whole plant from the root/soil?
It appears from the picture that you’ve bent the main stem over. I’ve not seen many folks try to implement lst traing on the main stem near the soil line
Yes I started lst about week 3 and it’s formed solid bent over and all the small bud sights now seem to be growing as even as the top of the plant as topped aswell am I doing anything bad mate?
Bad? Nah… not really sure friend. I’m sure Osage will step in and educate me on how common this is
Just haven’t seen a lot of folks utilize that technique on cannabis. Typically you see the side shoots tied down, but the plant looks healthy so
If you are referring to the first pic in your post, that’s mainlining. I love the technique and will implement it during my next grow. The mainlining in that pic is not the traditional way as I’m aware of it, but to each his own. It’s all about experimenting and developing new techniques
Aslong as I’m not damaging the plant I was wondering if I’ll have to remove them at any point man??
I can’t tell from the pics on yours because they’re so red
I’ll take some more haha didn’t think about that man I was flying bro lol
But with regards to staking the branches down, no, you’ll just have to adjust as she grows bigger
I disagree with that assessment, The act of training a cannabis plant to form a “hub” or “manifold” off a single node, creating a center for equal energy distribution from the roots to each cola.
This is not manifolding or any version I’ve seen. Just bent the main stem down to create more space. I would consider this LST. I don’t think it’s harmful and I agree that it’s good to play around and find new techniques
If we’re talking about the same pic I disagree. You can tell the stem has been cut from the top because of the “knuckles” on the top and each side. Take a closer look. It’s someone’s idea if mainlining in a different way. Everything has been taken from the bottom too. Look closer
I’m talking about the first pic in YOUR post
Same, the very first pic he posted not me. We’ll have to agree to disagree… the very definition of it
Fair enough:joy: and yes thanks, I do know what mainlining/manifolding is:joy:
