These go on the Grobo wires, you need both if wanting to use these. These make hanging a little easier I heard.
Ok sweet I will go ahead order some here soon
Morning. So I’ve been able to bend branches without totally squish it. I just massage with my pointy finger,middle finger and thumb. I slowly manipulate to the direction and do it for two days and they stiffened right up with no damage. They stay there! You can do a squish and super crop I believe but will have to recover.
Has anyone tried putting a clear piece of plexiglass a few inches down from the light? Maybe it’ll get light without getting so close. Here’s a picture of how I put my fingers. I use a pencil to demonstrate. My plant is sleeping still
Use middle finger for stability. Thumb to gently flex over and pointy finger to guide the length of bend. I do it until it’s flexible enough to move and then check it and move it where I want until it stiffened. If it’s not squished it only takes one day to stiffen with no damage.
I saw things like that in a couple videos and some were really beating up the plant, pinching it, squeezing it and saying give it a few days to recover. I think, will just use the clips if I ever have to do this.
I thought the same. I’m afraid with the size of my hands I would do more damage trying to put them on. So I do it this way.
I know what you mean. I clipped off a nice growth before as I could not get into where I wanted so I just started snipping. Then I saw it cut and was all bummed.
Exactly. I knicked a branch also.
Have you pushed your coco pod down an inch yet? Looks like you have some room to go down. Lots of tucking to do @Hayden_Gregory
I can not push the coco pod down the roots are stuck in the lid wont allow for lowering, I am tucking some as well.
Thank you for the insight!!
Get a piece of plexiglass and drill holes for air flow. Let your plant grow into it and bend accordingly. Use magnets to hold plexi so you can move up and down. Just another Smokey morning idea.
I will get a piece, like a clear heat barrier, very good idea!
found a piece on amazon for 10 bucks should work perfect really just want to protect center cola!
Here is my plant one more time and last time for the day, I did a thorough defoliation, cut about 15-25 more leaves and cut one of the stems off that had 2 flower sites but weren’t going to produce much if any flower!
So I just trimmed even more off Lolli popped her some more, took some of the lower bud sites off with the lollipop, She has a crazy amount of stacking going on on 2 front left stems trying to open the plant up way more, may have went over board! The reason she is so droopy is lights off at 11 night night time for her. @Todd.grobo @Gunk @TheDogMan
I’d go heavier on the trim, open up the inside. This is a personal opinion, but one thing @Mpower11 said to me during my grow was something along the lines of “your trimming is on point. Most growers are afraid to go heavy on trimming but you’ve got that covered.” Don’t be afraid to go heavy when she flowering, you want as much energy to go to the buds as possible. I know this pic looks bare, but if you look at my grow, a ton grew back as well!
I had those in my cart too. I did not buy them. I think they would work but they are for a larger space. The Grobo is small and you can do bends with your hand just as well. With such a small space it is not too hard to fill the box with the canopy.
These work better in a tent where you have 3 foot by 3 foot to spread things out more. GENTLY Bend the colas with your fingers by twisting and bending. They will give in and bend. They harden and recover quickly.
OK good, I did not buy them yet and sounds like I won’t.
I only been watching a lot of videos and just learning this now.
I watched a lot of videos years ago. You have to take things with a grain of salt. A lot of used car salesmen in the game. Most things we do make sense after you give it some thought.
None of it is a perfect science. It is always about the journey. If you love growing and caring for the plant, the harvest will take care of itself. Sometimes you will get huge results, sometimes small. Adjust and move on…
Always remember the feeling you get just before opening the door. The Anticipation of seeing the work you did before manifest in the plant 🪴 is the absolute best. Like seeing your kid graduate the 3rd grade each day. Nothing big but it sure makes you smile .
It is fun and I do enjoy it. I really do not need a 2nd one, just doing it more for fun and like you said, you feel good when it does good.
I heard an old timer say before “No matter what you say you do and use, someone will say it is wrong and they do X and use X” and things like that.
