    Yea i have short ass summers here .

    But im trying to make some auto seeds for summer :)

    Im thinking about burying a trashcan in the yard and making a big ass dwc .

    Then just let her grow for 4 weeks then build a light depo box till fall . We'll see :)

    Have it veg for 3 months indoor and drop the bucket 2ft in the ground outside for the long part of summer through fall for flower?

    Would that even work?

    Sure
    Thats kinda what i meant put a already decent sized plant out side and let the sun boost her for 4 weeks then start budding it before the cold comes

    You would prolly have a monster. I would have to drop the clay pebbles for something like that and use rockwool only chopped into 1 in cubes like I seen somewhere

    That's because you do not get light or air into it

    I seen a guy grow one 4 lb plant this way.
    The main reason to do this is if you very limited to plant count, or wanted to have fun.

    So to grow them 3 ft tall i would just have to seriously thin them out?

    Do you think i have time ?

    Like i said i give fuck all about the plants on the right in fact i want to hurt them been looking at them for too long lol

    I only have one plant now in a 2' x 4' space. I could do 4 smaller ones and will prolly run 3 or 4 next run but they will be much smaller plants and I will not be topping more than 2 times each. I am just going to snap tips til they get where I want before flip. Still 3 months to plan all that though lol

    You want containment focus and intensification of light , slow steady movement of air.
    A given area is only going to allow so many terminal stems, the plants are topped in veg to several terminal stems, never let them become root bound, you take out side Branch's and force the bud to develop near the terminal stem,
    Because it is near the terimunal stem it will develop much larger and fatter then it will at the end of the branch you cut off.
    Without the branch sticking off the terminal stem it allows light and air penetration deep into the plant,

    Haha I in fact want to hurt them

    This is me sometimes during veg. I found that when I did "hurt" them it resulted in explosive growth.

    My plant is like that chick on 50 shades. She likes the wips and chains.

    Train them to about 15 colas in that space, or 4 terminals each

    Ok so thin them out then trim the side sboots off the main colas after the first node?

    You let the plants veg like normal, they will normally need to be around a foot tall is all to finish at 3 ft tall or so,
    Depends on the strain,
    Put them under the lamps cut all the tops level and even with one another when you first put them in to bloom, strip all side Branch's off by cutting them one inch off of the terminal stem and then pinch the top of the terminal stem,

    About 30, all the same strain, same stretch is best but not necassary
