Wedding Cake Grow **Harvested**

Day 27 Late Veg 3/14

She looked ready so I topped her. I did a drain/fill to give her fresh water and nutes but I noticed bottle #5 did not dispense (bottles # 3 & 4 dispensed). Waiting to hear back from Support on this. I’m wondering if I should manually dose bottle 5. She’s looking good, I want to prevent any cal/mag deficiently issues lol.

EDIT: Figured out what happened with the help of Support. The Grobo completed the dispense action but the tube in bottle #5 is a bit short and it does not reach to the bottom of the bottle. I manually dosed for this drain/fill and will be mindful in replacing bottle #5 sooner until I can fix/extend the tube length. Thanks @Dani for the quick response! :slight_smile:

Looks like you double topped.
Stroke the leaves downward next time to be sure there is nothing inside! If you know what I mean! :eyes::seedling:

Ah I think you’re right. I didn’t mean to double top. It’ll be interesting to see how she grows :joy:

Day 31 Early Veg 7/21

A week after topping her, there are 4 branches growing out :slight_smile:
She has already reached the first fan. I think I might snip off the 2 biggest fan leaves soon. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!

Day 43 Late Veg 19/21

I’m removing the smaller branches and cleaning up the bottom of the plant. I think I’m going to let her go into Transition soon. She looks happy :slight_smile:. Any advice is welcome!

Day 53 Transition 9/14

I’ve been chopping off smaller branches that won’t make it. I know she’s really bushy right now. I’m letting her grow on the bushier side to see how she’ll turn out because on my Blueberry Muffin grow I trimmed her a bit too much I think.

Need some advice here. I have 2 branches that I’m thinking about chopping off. If I chop those 2 branches off, the plant will still have 7 main branches. I read that generally it’s good to have about 6-8 main colas. Is it a good idea to chop them off at this stage of grow? I don’t want to stunt her stretch either as she can be a bit taller. @ToddYYC @Vicc @Bplatinum9 @vegetato


Pics of the 2 branches - should I chop them off? The branch in the back is above the 2nd fan and it’s higher than the branch on the right side but it doesn’t seem to be growing.

I would probably take the smaller branch that seems to be stunted, if it appears the growth has stopped. It would seem likely that the branch would only draw energy and resources away from the other cola and prevent those from fully developing. Makes sense to me.

The one facing the back fan for sure. Not sure on the other one but i dont think it’ll hurt at this point.

agreed with @Mpower11 Either juice em or clone em :slight_smile:

You can tell they wouldnt do well by only have leaves up until the top. Good choice!

Day 60 Flower 2/41

Dealing with some light burn issue. I should have let this one go into Transition sooner. I’m going to move the branches around and plan to defoliate soon!

Shes still stretching. Might have to super crop the tops off. Really needs light atm. Otherwise healthy and happy

I’m thinking maybe if I give her a heavy defoliation I can stunt her from stretching :joy:. If she’s like the Blueberry Muffin grow, she’s going to stretch for another 1-2 weeks

Then you need a backup plan!
