Growing it

Easy

Resistance

Strong

My first grow, so started slow and went sideways several times. Strain was the cheapest I could get, wanted to see if I really wanted to do this before purchasing better strains. Plants seemed to grow high, but never bushed out. I didn't top them until in the 4th week and then tried pruning the bottom leaves. Buds developed, but were small. I think light was the real limiting factor, for potency and yield (I have upgraded). This is a very low yield, but for my first grow, I'm OK with that. Learned a lot and mostly having fun.

I decarboxylated most of the yield and made cannabutter and tincture. Saved some buds for smoke, much better than I could have thought. A nice high.

First time grower, so not a lot to share. It was fun keeping track of my progress and following others on the grow diaries, and I learned a lot from many other growers. I have a new grow that I started this week and will try to incorporate many of the methods and techniques I have seen her, and other places. Feels like a fun environment to share.

Hello ! I agreed with Athos ! When looking at your picture it seems that it is the right time as it seems both of your ladies are pushin the 6th node. ! And acording to me you can put that light closer as 26 watts will make them stretch to catch the light if i is too high ! Hope it will help you :grin::+1:

If I top the lower nodes, can I get the plant to fill out more? I have improved the set up and the light seems better than what I had earlier.

Pruned the lower branches already. I have a grow tent ordered and will be able to fully enclose the plants in a few days. thanks.

Yes, topping will cause the plant to grow wider/bushier rather than tall/skinny. Good luck :+1:
