Scrolling through “share your grow” and I’m seeing many Grobo users having serious height issues similar to what I’m going through.
Topping encourages vigorous growth and I don’t believe this small machine can handle it. I also believe the recipes are 100% incorrect esp when topping. Topping should be used when there’s adequate space for your plant to grow, not a very small and tiny space like a Grobo. Yes I’m sure there are success stories using Grobo and topping no doubt but in general I don’t believe it’s a good idea. The developers at Grobo need to figure a way to adjust the recipe if you do top. The growth rate of a topped plant surpasses what the fixed recipe recommends which leads me to believe that’s why Grobo allows you to shift the growing schedule. The problem with that is that there are so many marijuana strains and getting topping advice from a grobo’er via the forum can and will be the wrong advice.
I was recently told (5 days ago) that my issue is “resolved” because a “champion” said my problem is not a problem because my plant’s height is starting to bud right at the second fan. Well, It’s now 5 inches above the second fan and not one white pistil is to be found yet. Now I have to do major work or I’ll have to scrap this whole project.
I suggest doing your homework, read, go to websites and gather as much info as you need before you do anything else your plant requires before coming in here looking for advice.
