that hash looks well nice and nice groom man hope all goes well this time that purple punch auto looks the shit man good luck


Thanks fella

Still got a bit of hash cos I’ve been saving it for high days and holidays ;). That grows all finished now, ended up not doing any LST just to see how they grow for a bit of fun, pulled just over 11oz which has my jars nice and full with 3 flavours to keep it nicely mixed up.

 

FYI the Jack 47 is the best of the lot with a real high high that last for hours :yep:

 

Now got 4 more Jack 47’s on the go all getting LST and one of them topped (just to see :wassnnme:), plus 4 Mandarine punch just put in soak today

 

cheers for stopping in :skin_up:

@Wooden Monkey

Loving the grow space build there mate....its given me alot of pointers for then i build one myself....I'm going for a single 1mx1m space. 

One question if I can....have you fixed insulation to the access doors aswell?

I'm only planning on 2 grows a year starting around April so not too worried about really cold temps...I'll add a couple of tube heaters as you have aswell. 

Cheers Lamster

Topping Auto’s

 

Anybody else topping Autos?
 

On my first grow I tried LST and on one plant got a bit carried way and nearly snapped the Main Stem! This plant ended up having a 90 degree bend in the stem, the most bud and was finished a week before the rest.

Second grow I snapped a Main Stem most of the way through but saved it with a match stick and plumbers tape (all I had to hand) and this one survived plus also finished first with an oz more bud than the other 3.

Third Grow decided to top one properly 2 sets of branches up then trained the 4 stems left and this plant is now looking the best of the bunch.

The the big take away is I’m a bit heavy handed! :wassnnme:
 

But also that Autos don’t seem to mind topping! Which goes against everything I’ve read or listened to on pod casts. Sooooooo with all the snapping and what’s happened I decided to do a test on this next grow and top all 4 plants as I would like to grow like this from now on if I can get them to finish quicker, give a little more bud and there easier to train. First issue was one seems to be a runt so I’ll leave it and see what happens but the rest I’ve chopped tonight, only time will tell now :innocent:

One thing I have done which I’ve also done on all my grows is water 2 litres per plant with 4ml nitrogen per litre, 4 hours before doing any LST. Did this after reading watering before helps some with bending! :stoned: And added the nitrogen just to give the plants a boost after cutting/bending.

 

If anybody else is topping please shout up as I’d like to know how you’ve got on.

 

best

I am still on my first grow and I did have a go at topping and LST with some success.  However I’m loving your really efficient LST’ing! Did you chop those above the 3rd or 4th node? I’m going to follow you along on this so please do lots of photos of the training. I know you are growing Autos and I am on photoperiods but not too much difference I am guessing.

Waited till the girls grew to 4 or 5 nodes then chopped them between nodes 2 and 3. I’ll keep adding photos unless it turns out to be a fail :skin_up:

Interesting dude, glad I'm following along. I've often considered topping but decide against in the end. Are these the Jack47 you were on about earlier?

@Wooden Monkey thanks for your reply. Of course chopping them at higher nodes means the lower branches will have lengthened enough to do this type/pattern of LST - I’m getting it now!

These latest 4 are “purple punch” from Sensei Seeds, not grown them before so that’s another variable. Will definitely be doing Jack 47 again thou as it’s still the best smoke I’ve ever had :yes:

Tomorrow is 3 weeks from sticking there heads up and there still going for it even after topping :yep:

 

Just to give a bit more info on the grow, this time I’ve decided to start feeding early 2ml of Grow (cellmax) per litre as I want to make up for lost time in veg after topping. Also adding a teaspoon of great white, molasses, liquid seaweed 2ml per litre, silicon 1ml per litre and 4ml of rootboster form cellmax per litre.
 

So far so good no sign of any tip burn

The runt! don’t know if I’ve stunted this one or if it’s just genetics :nope: but I’m going to keep her going for now, there’s plenty in the jars so  no rush :angel_not:
