    so do you think i should cut it again? when i cut it I left about 20 percent of it it was even all the way across but when it started to grow it look like that

    looks ok, but a proper fim goes THROUGH the outer leafy parts of the top (which when pressed together resembles a turnip) without damaging some of the smaller inner leaves. Any way you cut it it will grow back bigger, so there ya have it. FIM - fuck I missed

    ya my nails are constantly dirty from mixing the soil with water and a lil fert before transplanting, but its the small price to pay to be able to say i grew it all organic like, imo hydroponic growers are just too afraid to get their hands dirty. i wear my dirty fingernails like a badge of honor lol, but seriously every time im done taking care of the plants i have to sit back with my pocket knife and dig out all the dirt cause it doesnt matter how much u wash your hands, the shit aint coming out.

    I love the dirt/organic grow, but I do prefer to wear latex gloves when I transplant/mix soil. I dislike dirt under the nails.
