@Ccs141 From experience yes i can recommend it, if your auto's are fast growing then yes, newer auto strains are a lot better these days. Bend them from when they have developed their 5th leaf set onwards and you should be good. As for yeild, bit hard to say, but yes i do think you pull more weight personally, more light on the whole plant in general. I pulled 6oz from an auto last year which had been trained/LST'd, biggest auto yield so far. I'll be LSTing again this year same as every other year.... :magic: i love it!
All the blessed in your season!
One Love :yinyang:

Hey man

 

its been quiet on here because I’ve been bean sprouting but we’re almost ready to drop them in the soil!

 

I shall be growing:

 

RGS - LemonadeOGxFreezeland - 8

 

Urban Legends - Gorilla auto - 1 (‘Twas a freebie, looking forward to another auto in the mix)

 

Mephisto Genetics - 3bearsOG - 2

MG - Forgotten Cookies - 1

 

 

I did LST on a couple of the plants on my last grow, worked really well on the G13 Pineapple Express I grew, will definitely look to be doing the same again this year on a couple!

Cheers. Looking back at it I’m not as happy as I was back then. Definitely go for shorter bushier plants where I can this time. 
 

also yes the neighbours were sound! Fortunately it sat just below the fence line as you can see here. large.E2A74FDE-5820-44FC-A844-C66D1FB92948.jpeg

Certainly looks a bit more out of sight in that pic.. did they not smell it though being so close?

Just lucky I guess! Still pretty obvious though I suppose haha. 
 

certainly in the mornings the plants would kick out a pong.

 

Didn’t receive any complaints!

I think I was lucky to get anything from my last grow haha! 
 

From what I’ve read, watched and heard about it definitely gives you more room to create big cola’s but I wouldn’t say that’s a guaranteed yield increaser. I think as everything in a grow is so variable there’s really no ‘one’ trick rather a good balance of everything and what you find works for you. 

 

what it does help though is lowering but widening your canopy (if you keep on top of it) which helps if you want to be discreet. Or not so discreet as above haha!

Hi @GrowingViking. I’ve a similar set up to you this year I think. I’ve always done the gorilla grows but have now a bit of a garden and going to try a little plastic green house. Any tips on dealing with the fluctuation in temps and humidity?

Truthfully mate with the little plastic ones I found it’s more a game of keeping that condensation off them. 
 

Keeping dry is the name of the game for me this year. Last time I was out almost every morning opening up the greenhouses, shaking water off left and right, giving the plants And everything else as much time in the sun as possible to dry off before plonking them back inside. 

 

if you have a shed available it could offer some additional warmth for any cold evenings we have. 
 

I’m considering even digging a spot at the top of my garden and chucking one plant in just for the fun of it.

Thanks for the heads up on the moisture. I was hoping to try and keep the buds as dry as possible, due to always loosing a lot to rot. Was thinking of a small solar fan for air movement but that’s not much use at night. Might try a towel on the inside of the frame at night, worth a try.

You should definitely plant one in the  garden, just for the outside vs undercover comparison.
