    in this photo is everything i cut off both plants,, the cutting on the left almost looks like a plant itself,,, and yet these clones were only about 6 to 8 inches tall, space kitties lost about half her mass,,
    according to nug buckets, the fan leaves below should be left on until they recover, and until the next topping,, IMG_1470.JPG

    I'm a big fan of manifolding so pulling up a chair to watch this unfold.

    I have always wanted to try mainlining, and i just now felt i had the skills to perform it,
    2 things i hope mainlining helps me with,, 1 , shorter plants,, i have limitied head room,, and 2 , longer veg time for bigger stalks and truck, 3,, less sucker branches due to the SIP? ( this is a debated topic) 4,, less larf and more cola

    if it succeds great,,, if it doesnt hold up to previous grows,, no biggie,, my stash pile is massive , i was temped to not even grow this winter,, but i enjoy it,, and trying mainlining is providing some "fun" if you will

    space kittles has a very even node structure,, she really looks like she was grown from seed,, the nodes are perfectly even,, she must be a young mother plant?

    Jack Herer in the upcoming picture surely is from an old mother, the nodes are far apart, So to follow nug buckets instructions i had to some some super cropping and bend the main stem to even out the left and right side growth on the manifold,,,

    Oh man...once you mainline a plant, you'll always mainline your plants. Nothing like 8+ colas growing nice and tall. I'm in a small tent too (3x3x6) and have the same limitations. Just keep lower part of your plants trimmed and clean and you'll be nicely rewarded. I currently have a Querkle I'm training with 12 colas so excited to flip to flower!

    Ya Bro thats what i am talking about, rock it, I was thinking about leaving the new tops under the main Y split like you have to make more cola's with a little bit less veg time,, more like an LST/ mainline?,,

    Yes, after my first cut, I let the two branches grow out to three nodes then simply cut the 2nd node growth off. A little extra training is giving me some extra top growth at the end for even more colas. Saves a week or so doing it this way over the Nugbuckets way.

    agreed,, I am going to greatly consider your method,, i can see it on the plant, all the tops on your plant and mine are completely exposed to the light path now as well
