Topping side branches

So while looking at my Super Lemon Haze this morning, I had a thought but could be talking crazy. Are you only supposed to top the main stem, or can you top side branches? Seems to me it would be easier to get a more even canopy and main colas by topping side branches as well. Anyone have any info on this?

I’ll top my side branches after four nodes on a Bruce Banner feminized now it’s taking a long time for the side branches to catch up with the top branches which I also topped



I hope that it will be OK extended vegetation three weeks so far

Hey @shawshank7755 she looks really happy and good right now. I just looked up BB online and because of what I read, I would likely flip sooner than later. If she is going to stretch, your at the bottom of the 2nd fan, you are totally good to go to transition and we’ll have to watch her canopy as she stretches. She is a longer grow here, you can see 10 weeks in flower is a long time. Ensure you are doing your mid week top ups to ensure she stays healthy and happy.

It should come as no surprise that Bruce Banner marijuana seeds develop tall, sturdy plants, particularly when treated with the utmost respect. Gardeners with some experience are encouraged to try their hand at the techniques they’ve learned to coax a hefty harvest from its heavy, bright green buds (500 grams indoors vs 900 grams out). While it requires up to 10 weeks of flowering, when taken a little earlier, you can expect the effects of Bruce Banner to be stronger – an experiment that’s more than worth trying out.

What do you mean by tops adding water or trimming to plant I was just away for a week so The water change was supposed to be on Thursday but I got back today and it seems to still be OK the water was low but not too bad hi did the water change today
I don’t know if it will shift to Sunday or it might say change on Thursday The notifications I’ve been getting is that the plant is in flowering and doesn’t realize that I extended late veg for two weeks I guess they are generic and automatic
Thanks for your help you are the man

Water drain and fills happen once a week. Typically on the same day every week. Once a successful drain and fill is complete, your nutrients dispense, bottles 3, 4, 5. 3 days after your weekly drain and fill youll alwaus be reminded your plant is thirsty. In later stages of growth they will drink a lot of the reservoir and topping it up afterthose days is great for your plant. Not doing so could lead to plant problems.

Bruce Banner fem two more days of transition
Just refilled the water haven’t seen bottle one or two dispense anything for the last three fills calibrated the pH sensor and it is good it would be nice if we could see what our PH meter is reading in our Grobo heading pages hopefully it’s ready to go to flower for 56 days any suggestions would be appreciated

Personally, i would extend Late Vegetation until the plant reach the bottom of the middle fan.
With the nice, but a little aggressive, trimming you did, the plant will probably need a day or 2 to recover.

Definitely ready for flower!
The super thick branches will have the biggest buds, those skinny scrawny branches will produce bud, but it will not be as dense. This is where 4-6 main colas are suggested, its a bit late to remove branches now, however prior to flipping into transition you could remove several of the small branches where the bud sites are not at the same height as the rest. This will force the plant to spend its remaining energy on the higher bud sites at the top. That’s what we want!
She looks really happy and looks to have improved quite a bit from your photos 12 days ago. Definitely consider flipping her with some fresh water and a trim. (currently anything below bottom fan), well work our way up!

Will do thanks for your advice looking forward to growing some big fat buds next time I am going to try and pick a recipe that doesn’t take as long as this one but has good high power buds
