    sweet i have her tied in one spot right now im gonna wait till she grows a little more to tie her down more she seems to be doing fine
    i added the 13w to see if the temp would go up alot might put a 23w 6500 in cause thats all i have at the moment
    but if i want to double my wattage now i would have to figure out how to get cooler air in the box heat is my number one problem

    Sounds good dank.

    One tip. It sometimes happens that a branch breaks off when doing stuff like LST. If that happens just tape it back in place with electrical tape and it will reattach in less than a week. Sometimes you need to include a toothpick for support. Or you could make the piece into a clone.

    Good luck with your grow.

    Great advice, make sure that you have your clone gel nearby so that you don't get any air inside of the stem!

    My homie took a cuuting and just put it in a cup of water, no gel, powder, nothing but cuuting and water, and it rooted. I use the gel, but if u don't have it, dosent mean, don't give it a try, MJ is a awesome plant, sure u can get one to root without hormones if ur thumb is green enough! :mrgreen:

    and when you flip to 12/12 does it slow it down also?

    Any change in the plant or environment means that the plant has to devote time and resources to respond. But in many cases the plant responds with little effort. The MJ plants branches are designed to move and bend as they grow. The sun moves, shit falls on them, other plants push them etc...

    The whole idea of LST is to stay within the range of the plant's natural ability to respond.

    I suppose it might slow her down a tiny amount. But the benefits in increased yield because of exposure to the light will be substantial

    In fact with the famous 'scrog' technique there is a great deal of training and most of it is done during the stretch, early flowering. scrogs produce super yields.

    Some growers keep taking cuttings from the same mother plant for up to 15yrs and report no deteriotion. The plant cant change it's genetics. It's genes are determined the moment a flower is ferlitized.

    All the pro growers use clones for their scrogs.

    But I think fem seeds are a good choice for the first couple of grows at least.
