Hey UB, used your method 2 days ago and the new growth is very rapid, I'm amazed!
I topped 8 plants and kept 2 untopped to see the yield difference.
I'll post some pics in a week or so! Many thanks for sharing your method.
Great, looking forward to your photos.
After studying this thread, I am going to try it on my next grows. I think it will be excellent for LED/PLL combo since I don't really care for LST or Scrog.
was just wondering UB
have you ever done this technique in conjunction with ScrOG ?
Hi Uncle Ben,
I have read around 150ish pages of this thread.. simply amazing. Every time I read your posts I learn something so I always wanted to thank you for that. Even if it was said hundreds of times I must say it again: YOU'RE THE MAN I didn't know how to get in contact with you but It became clear to me that this is the right place to ask (maybe I'm wrong).
Here's my story: I have eight girls (hopefully) which are: 5 Moby Dick#2, 2 Critical Jacks (all Dinafem) and 1 bag seed which is 1month older than the others.
I kept them inside for one month and then moved them outside.. Now they are extremly happy, it seems the natural environment is what they were waiting for At the end of this week they will have 6 nodes and I will top them your way, to get 4 main colas. I'll leave the bagseed alone because it already has 8-9 nodes. I'll post some pics if you want.
My problem is.. the area is full of little creatures and I guess its time to spray them with some insecticide.. I was really convinced to use Neem Oil.. but I'm not anymore bc a few weeks ago I read a thread where a guy was complaining to you about it and I know its 'not your type'.
I was wondering what do you use/recommend? I must say sorry for the long message and/if this was said in one of your posts but I couldn't handle them all.. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! And please excuse my english, I tried my best! Thanks again!
Luckybear, thanks for the kind words and your grammar was fine. Much better than most!
Regarding insecticides, if you want to do the organic thing (which I don't do) than Neem or pepper/garlic spray is a good choice, so I hear. Pyrethrins are quite "safe". Kicker is, these products are short lived. If maintenance is not an issue, fine. I use imidacloprid which is a systemic. It is labeled for just about every kind of consumable crop. Mine are outside, no problems with insects. They got a soil drench of a product called Merit. Malathion and Sevin are safe, just follow directions.
For the most part, I don't use anything until I see a problem. Identify the enemy and then find the best product. I don't spray anything as a preventative. For example, I have peach trees that are loaded with fine premium quality fruit. Haven't sprayed with a pesticide in years and that was only when I had hoards of huge green beetles feeding on the fruit.

Thank you for your fast response! I have not seen any problems yet but I thought its good to be preventative. I'll follow directions
This is the second time when I put them in this area and I remember that last year I was terorized by some insects.. I guess its called 'green shield bug'.. from what I googled.
I'm not sure if this was/is harmfull, but every time I came to see the girls the bugs were standing right there on the stems.. and this was annoying. In my country people are used to spray the grapes with copper sulphate.. but this is not one in my choices.. this CuSO4 sounds strange!
This year I'll identify all the enemies
