    Looking around here everyone seems to talk about killing the plant in order to harvest it.. but i dont really wanna kill my plants after all the time we've spent together ! I've seen a picture on the net were a plant was harvested but kept alive so i know its possible. how is this done ? has anyone any experience doing this ?

    you can get two differnt yeilds off of it if you pick the top buds and laeve the bottom ones
    im not really sure about how to do it though
    just clone it
    or grow another one :]

    its defenitely possible ... you just need to set the lights back to 18/6 ...

    but im not sure about the process of clipping the bud.... lets hear from the vets...
    im also intereted in knowing...

    Just harvest and leave some leaves on it. Give it a high dose of nitrogen and put the lights on 24hrs or 18/6 in a month new growth will start. Clone it or re flower

    its an annual let it die and start with new ones.. you can run into alot of trouble with revegging eg. stunted growth or hermies ..good luck

    you can harvest and then re-veg. leave some growth tips or it won't come back. it takes a while for it to revert back to veg though. the new growth will look un-pot like, but after a couple internodes, it will/should start looking normal again.

    Possible and good idea are two completely different things, you were concerned about the time it took to grow; It will be faster to start a new one from seed, next time take clones when in veg. Its better to start over then try to reveg and reflower.

    I have had a Agean(turkish) Indica growing for 2 and a half years now. It is very very bushy and branchy. Never got too tall in her young years. But she did give really really nice good ol indica buds 2 times. Now though she just grows like a house hold plant she lives in the living room with just regular light. She was never pamperd in a grow room with lights nor on a lighting/feeding time regiment. She was grown just like a house plant from a seed and we were lucky she was a girl! she is very pretty. every time she buds we simply cut from the bottom of the node where sun the sun catchers are and since shes really bushy its easy no cola hassel to cut from the mid stock. but boy does she get thirsty after harvest as though her soil drys even when there is no direct sunlight. when i was younger i also had another female like this that i grew for 7 years. but she only gave flowers 4 times She was a Vmt sativa. Plants are funny little organisims. last christmas we even decorated her with tiny little ornaments. she got soo bushy my wife clipped some leaves and we made a nice salad with olive oil. I also just harvested this summers plant an early girl without killing it. she is tall and not branchy. none of the above where used to clone nor came from clones.
