I just did that on my CM run and had close to 100% success.We plan to top the plants and root the tops, does that seem a good idea?
Thanks Topheavy420, appreciate the positive feedback! It seems that in an ideal world, growing outdoors in the perfect climate, it would be awesome to grow out all these beauties to full height and really appreciate them in their fullest potential. In practice, we're working with a space 7' floor to ceiling, so topping seems a sensible plan.I always take the tops for clones. If your going to veg for a bit after the plant will still have some defined tops... so plenty to judge on and compare... the stretch potential of some phenos will be huge with nl/Hz
It's gonna be a pretty tough choice as it is. I would plan on narrowing it down to a few this round and have the championship ballot slated for round two.
Your doing a great job, plants are uber healthy and so happy! Keep up the great work man!
Broseidon, how do you veg your females?Having topped all of them now, I can say that after topping you still notice and can definitely clearly see which ones are looking "ahead" in terms of veg. Some are simply a bit more bushy, you also note which ones reacted better to topping and not or which ones rooted better/pushed more root mass and faster etc.
We took your advice and it definitely seems like a winner. Better airflow, tidier, greater distance between the grow medium and the plant. We removed around 2 bottom nodes from each girl, most of which are being used as clones.Week 2 of flower i plan to remove all lower growth.
