    sweet, 12 weeks strain? looks like they have a bit of time left, no orange hairs even that i cant see.?

    as for the frost, bro, pic dont do her justice.

    not sure of the strain, but I smell something exactly like Flintstone vitamins and grapefruit, citrus. The only strain i can find with these smells is " tangerine Man" SnoopDogg Strain.

    Oh wow! looks like it's going to be great man. I'm not exactly sure if it's a 12wk strain but I won't mess up by chopping early. Just going to wait until the plant tells me that it's ready.

    Im currently running a set that I started off by monstercropping. Then I supercropped them. Topped them. And lst using garden wire to pull down branches. 20180109_214024.jpg

    FireOG 86 days veg, Perfect sun Mini, but going to flower under 4pc Luminus cxm22's in 3-4 weeks.
    On the fence about topping more, she is preflowering.

    Would it safe to top her still? I have about 20 i need to top,lol.. She is a mess.
    plan is to scrog eventually

    If you have 20 flowering tops already you’re dealing with an issue of diminishing returns. Don’t forget about the flowers below the tops. The plant can only support a certain amount of flower.

    nah, those are just the tops i havent topped in a while. IT really has about 60 true cola tops. SO just let her go then?

    I have grown this before, she doesnt really stretch out much, she just stacks. Thats another reason i think i might not top again, because I dont want to slow down her liny bit of stretch she does do between now and flower. If i remember right, when i flip, she dont do shit but bud. Here is a pic of the last one, under a mars300, but might be a different beast under the Cobs

    I'm trying my hand at LST and am looking for any feedback, since I'm a complete noob. I've read and watched videos, so i think I have the basic "how" down. But the details going forward are where I get confused.

    I tied these down a few days ago and am going to switch to 12/12 tonight. I'm trying to maximize a small space, so I know they are small.

    Here's my journal for details: http://rollitup.org/t/andrews-2nd-indoor-grow.957257/#post-14062287

    Do I continue training into flowering? If so what/where to tie down?

    Pipe cleaners are great but get some safety pins to go with them. Makes LST a snap with fabric pots.

    Thank you, if it's what I'm picturing, that's an awesome idea. You're talking about so you can move the safety pin without untying the pipe cleaner, right?
