    I may have over stressed these girls as I LST and mainlined a little...
    They took about a week to “get going again”

    This creates hotspots. Panda film is cheap use that. Flat white paint works awesome too.
    Is the sand for fungus gnat prevention?

    Everything seems to be going well!
    What are good seed banks to order from?

    I'm on my fourth grow right now. It's cool to see someone in the same general area as me. I really like the way you LST from such a small plant. I waited too long this last time and when I went to go do it the branch just snapped and I had to tape it back together. I ended up just letting them go wild after that.

    The big plants were not LST when small.
    I am trying a little harder with the small ones in veg.
    It’s the first time I have went this extreme.

    Lots of people bitch about vermiculite. I use it too. I don't care. But I do use perlite too.

    I use either. Whatever is on sale.

    Upgraded my Veg tent from CFL to 600w Led.
    Plants love it!
    No more “reaching for food” from a light that was too small! E38839C7-27E6-44E3-A4E9-7BCD69964D89.jpeg

    Just some updated pictures from my veg tent.
    I haven’t done anything but some maintenance LST.
    My intentions are to let the go up now.
    One plant has not quite filled the 24” diameter pot yet
    The other two are at the edges and will be ready for scrogging soon!

    The branches above my first topping are clearly significantly larger than the stem on two plants.
    Also the tops from my second topping are furthest behind all other branches....
    I adjusted them to receive more ligh food.

    Clearly I did not LST or do much of anything but tip these one time each.
    I was just excited to have female plants!
    I am still a beginner and have become somewhat comfortable with LST now.

    I tried supercropping this year and it went pretty cool. Only fucked up once and broke the branch. Give it a shot when you scrog and it may help. I liked the squeeze and twist method.
