Well i must say on the C.Banana the Budswelling made a lot of difference and it should be a lot more.
On the plant with budswelling were 2 big buds but 2 weeks ago i looked at the plant and saw the big bud had mold.
so i cut a big piece away from this bud to save the rest.
and today the 2th big bud had mold to :-( because it was so big but also it was getting very cold in my tent at night when light are of i had just 14 degrees celsuis so i think that's also the reason for the mold.
final outcome :
plant 1 with budswelling 504 grams wet weight ( and i really think i lost 2 big buds so i think without mold i would go over 600 grams easily)
plant 2 Without 383 grams wet weight

i will continuo to keep the experiment going will grow 2 plants from same genetics and 1 plant i will be doing budswelling on and the 2nd not.
for a while to see if really works. but my opinion says YES.

UPDATE on Dry Weight!!!!!!

today i have put the C.Banana in de jar to cure they are ready.
The Ryal gorilla needs 2 more days the are realy dense nugs

Ok the final result of Budswelling against normal :
Bud swelling plant with 2 big buds lost due to mold
124 gr dry weed

no budswelling
98 gr

So a difference of 26 gr well seems worth the trouble for sure .

Great harvest despite the mold! It appears your budswelling technique really worked! I saw a few Canadian videos that used the same technique. Those growers had a different name for it though. I can't remember the name, but they swore by it.

Are you going to take the winter off, or try to adapt your set up? I think I can grow this winter, but I'm not going to risk my expensive seeds. I have some bagseed, prize seeds, and dispensary seeds I can use.

@Quexos,royal gorilla results :
130 gr budswelling
128 gr no budswelling does not seem to have any affect on this plant like more effect on a sativa.

But must say biggest harvest ever 480 gr total that's 1,7gr/Wat :-)

@Bluesbreeder,2 Grams is 2 Grams. As you learn and perfect the technique I think the results will get better. You've already learned that this works best on Sativas. Maybe try it on a few hybrids next time.

Overall a great harvest! Gratz!
