My first grow
I initially over pruned
So the plant stretched
I super cropped I think
It’s close to the light but it’s been that way for a few weeks I just keep pinching bending and pulling it away from the immediate heat of the light
Overall she looks healthy to me
Recipe has 22 days left
My first grow
Your gonna have to supercrop in a circle! Or use grobo supports to keep it away from the light.
Next time I wont allow her to grow as tall
I think the window of opportunity to super crop has long faded away because all the stems are too woods to bend like the used to a month ago
All my grobo supports broke
I had to re apply silicone
I have a set of 3 trying to contain her but she’s a wild one lol
Thanks for you help
Sometimes you just have to do a partial harvest.
Chop the tallest from the top and start drying.
Congrats on your progress so far my friend! We all started somewhere and in my experience (before we made the Grobo at least) even finishing your 1st grow is something most first time growers struggle with.
- See if you can pop your cocopod through the lid and into the reservoir. This will gain you a bit of clearance at the top of the canopy.
- As our champions have suggested, use support racks to keep the colas off to the side of the top.
- As you have already done, supercropping is a great technique to control the height of a plant gone crazy. Early and often is better.
Good luck finishing up, hard to tell exactly what you have going on in there, but you will have something to be proud of for sure.
As far as the partial harvest goes I dont think the buds are full enough yet
I check it multiple times a day yeah it’s getting more light in top then the middle but its healthy and nothing is burning
Stephen I indeed just pushed the cocoa pod down into the reservoir
Thanks for the tip
Now I know not to let her grow that tall next time
You can go even further down if there is room. The plant won’t grow up much more, but should start to fill out and ripen up over the next 30 days.
I was trying to get some more room but the roots are massive
When I try to push down further the players that holds the pod begins to spring board from the roots pushing back
Also the roots are possibly wrapped around some of the sensors in the water tank and I dont want to damage anything
Definitely noticing better light dispersion
Current status update
12 days left in flowering
Should I partially harvest?
I’m running out of space
(Yes I let her stretch,first grow I didnt know
Basically all her stems are wrapping around
To save space)
Looking good to me
And I’m so close to a harvest
Just my 2 cents but she looks like another month to finish. Maybe a bit less.
Just keep bending her where you want
