You have to cut all the branches off. Its is kind of a waste now cuz you have big side branches. Usually you just keep cutting them off when they are small. Maybe you could make clones.
Couldnt I just mark where the top of my plant is, and start cutting all smaller branches off as the thing grows vertically?
What a cute dog
I am not here. None of this is real. Now go back to sleep.
You have to cut all the branches off. The energy of the plant will then go all to the main cola and you have lollipoped your plant. Its best cus you will get a fatty top nug and no small popcorn nuggs
Thanks Edux, thanks Hank. +rep both of u.
also, Edux, I don't think im going to do this because of how well its veg growth is going i dont want to ruin anything. But, those side branches that are growing out and up toward the top of my plant, will those turn into nice big colas??
will the top of my plant still be a nice big cola regardless of the side branches?
Basically I want big fat nugs not a bunch of popcorn nugs like you explained.
Thanks for the help guys
I did some reading, and I came to the conclusion I dont want to lollipop my plant, but rather receive a very large top cola!
How do I achieve this?
Cut off the bottom one third of the plant then. You should have just been cutting the branchs as they grew and not let them bet all big cuz that is a waste of energy but oh well. You can still cut them and get one fatty top cola. Leave any parts that look like they will combine into the main top.
This was my first time ever growing pot, in the pictures above!
I now understand the pruning / lollipop method much more.
In my opinion, on indoor plants only, you should prune the bottom branches that arent receiving as much light, around day 14, to ensure the top buds take up all that energy.
Lollipop is only good for a really tight SoG. little to no veg time.
