MC2 posted a topic in General Growing QuestionsHi. I am doing my first grow. Outdoors, in ground, au-natural with photoperiod high sativa landrace plants called Laughing Buddha (from Barney's Farm). They are growing tall and big but not yet flowering and I want to maximise the amount of bud I get from them (whilst ideally keeping them from getting to 2m tall). I've already topped one (accidentally) and am delighted to see that its split into two proper heads, almost two plants in one. So, result. I've read this guide and am interested in 'flimming'. https://www.ilovegrowingmarijuana.com/pruning/ I've searched this forum for 'flimming' but can find no mention of it, which seems a bit odd. (I am aware the search on this board is pretty inadequate so I've even tried a Google site search 'site:http://www.uk420.com/boards/ flimming' but still no joy.) So, does anyone have any experience of pruning these huge photoperiod sativa plants for best quantities of bud? If so can you lend me the benefit of your experience please? Thanks very much. Ah... my rather limited growing diary with photos of said plants is here:
Any help, direction etc very much appreciated... I have three clones, doing very nicely, though stuck in a small veg area while their mum flowers... I staggered taking the cuttings, so I can experiment to a degree - the first clone was potted from 0.5 to 1lt 3weeks ago and is becoming or is, root-bound. I do not have the option of potting up so plan to trim its roots and re-pot into 1lt. If it all goes to crap, I have a couple of weeks to work out what to do with the other two - worst case, one lives and is potted up. Can anyone advise on good practice for root trimming or direct me to any relevant threads, please? I have found a few discussions, though on hydro trimming, which isn't really helpful - I guess bonsai'ing a mother would be the closest to what I am trying to achieve, though temporarily. As I say, the aim/hope is to put these three in for a few additional weeks veg and turn them to 12/12 when mum comes out... Many thanks in advance.
Alright Every one im 3 weeks 2 days in to flower on lemon haze, i trimmed a lot off the bottom of my four plants just before i flicked to 12/12 lighting, my buds seem to be growing nicly theres plenty of them and they are a nice size in my opinion, although im a new grower so i cant really say if they are the best. My problem question is; a lot of leaves have grown, should i trim them back or is it best to leave them on??
