Just a quick note on the mainline project, today the 4 new mains had recovered from there previous tie-down, like so,

mainline final topping

mainline final topping

I almost bottled out and left it at that, but in the end thought fuck it,you've come this far, your concious is already fouled, rape n pillage one last time!!!

So i did,

mainline final topping

mainline final topping

The deed is now done, i will cry myself to sleep one last time, but god as my witness they will suffer no more (bondage aside obviously, everyone knows dem bitches luvsit). But no more slash and burn will be employed in these holiset of lands, a pot on too the ephiphical eden is all that they will know endure!
Hopefully a fresh update will follow next weekend!

I appreciate everybodys interest and I'm greatful for the support and compliments but I feel I must emphasise, this is my first attempt using this particular training technique. And were a long way from finished so given that much of what I touch rapidly turns to shit, please don't expect great things and most definitely don't try to emulate or copy my method, at least not just yet anyways! lol

I plan on allowing a couple of days recovery time before potting on to final, at that point some canes will be added for support and a few days later it will enter the flower tent.

I know that might sound a bit negative. But I'm actually quite surprised by how quickly the plant is recovering, and feeling fairly positive.

Just don't like to raise hopes then disappoint.

I do enough of that in real life! lol

You want the 8 main stems to be 12-14inches in length before you flip to 12/12,they will double in size duri g the stretch

How long has your veg cycle been so far?

Mine was just over 8 weeks

Thanx for the advice @@altern8

I'm expecting a roughly 2x stretch and was planning on flowering at around 8-12 inch each main depending how well I can space them out.

The plant was roughly 3 Weeks when I first topped and I guess its been around 3 weeks since then, probably another 10ish days till switch so roughly the same veg as you I think fella,

Thanx again for the advice. Genuinely appreciated.

Super interesting thread youve started mate. Have you sort of topped once to get your 1st 2 main lines then topped again to get a 8 top cola foramtion?..

Sorry for the questions but contrary to belief I dont know everything and love to learn new techs

All the best

Such is life bro, everydays a schoolday!

Always learning all the time, everyone of us, its how we evolve as a species..

I think you have the gist of it mucka, as said I'm no expert but if I try to sum it up, what this technique attempts to do is shape the plant stem/stems into an equally.shaped and sized manifold.

So yes we top first to achieve 2 mainlines, but in addition we also remove all lower growth, concentrating the plants energies into the two new tips.

Once these Mains reach a few nodes we top again, at the same time we remove all nodes below our new 'Mains'. Once more allowing the plant to focus its energies into the 4 new (equally spaced and divided) tips.

Rinse and repeat until you reach yr desired amount of tops..

There's a couple of really good guides I'll pm you some links when I get chance bro,

Theres a quick you tube video that is very informative of mainline,thats what got me started on this method but the big bonus is the massivly reduced time it takes to chop down and trim due to having hardly any popcorn buds,just 8 great big fat colas :)

Heres the link to the vid,great watch
