before the feeding update, a bit abought our favorite plant. ever wonder why the highest flower is the biggest? the plant evolved like everything else. with survival and reproduction in mind. in nature the highest point of the plant has the greatest chance of being pollinated so the plants puts more energy into the highest cola. this is why training is soooo important. a good flat canopy will have the plant putting the same energy into all tops mot just the highest one. Any that care to look at my journal from my last grow will see that all the colas are the same height within inches of each other, a very very flat canopy. still think I will yield more this run with the addition of co2, but I still cant wait for the next run. any that haven't read the entire thing.... move during veg had my veg crammed wasn't able to do my usual daily training. a word on support. ever notice that some of the flowers on side branches grow good then seem to stall out and stop growing in size while other flowers continue to swell? if so you also noticed "flopage" it is where the weight of the flower is bending the stem or stalk. the plant doesn't want to break its self and will stop putting energy into a flower if it is in danger of breaking due to weight. support your plants! I personally don't like stakes. they get in my way at feeding time. also be careful if you have a lot of stakes not to put your eye out! lol. If you do stake if possible stay away from bamboo or other wood stakes. ya never know what kind of spore or pathogen made that bamboo home during its travels and storage.
