Starting week 4 after being topped, defoliated and LST’d last week. :flushed: She handled the topping perfectly with no delay in growth. I did LST and defoliation 5 days later which she didn’t seem to enjoy, but did well. :muscle: I should have waited 1 or 2 more days because her branches would have been longer which would have made LST easier on her.

As for this week, she has started to flower. I’ll just sit back and let her grow! :seedling: There shouldn’t be a need for anymore training from here on out, except for maybe some minor leaf tucking or defoliation as needed.

:white_check_mark:Day 22: No water. Lots of vigorous growth over the past 24 hours. She is fully recovered from the LST and defoliation that happened a day ago. :+1:

:white_check_mark:Day 23: No water. I tied down one of the bottom 2 branches that was too small to LST last week. Those 2 are growing fast now. I did some minor leaf tucking as well.

:white_check_mark:Day 24: Gave 128oz of water. Almost no runoff. I tied down the last bottom branch that was too small to LST last week. Did some more leaf tucking. Lots of bud sites exposed.

:white_check_mark:Day 25: No water. Lots of growth. I had to do more leaf tucking. The canopy is getting very uneven. I’m thinking about another round of LST to keep it even.

:white_check_mark:Day 26: Gave 96oz of water. No runoff. She dried up quick this time. I gently bent down the taller branches. Her canopy is very even now. :+1:

:white_check_mark:Day 27: Gave 128oz of water. Only a little runoff. This seems like a lot of water in a short time, but she was ready. The pot was light again. She is drinking a lot! :sweat_drops:

:white_check_mark:Day 28: No water. The stretch is getting real! Internodes are becoming visibly longer. So many tops exposed at the canopy with space to grow!

The vigorous growth continued all throughout this week. Now that it has been a full week or longer since topping, training and defoliating, I can see what a huge benefit it had. Now she is in a strong position to power through flowering with a high yield. :muscle:

@Doktorholland, yes, for now. This way I don’t have to worry about upgrading my light when I decide to grow more plants at a time or when I get a larger tent. In the meantime, I could always dim it if needed. :sunglasses:

Looking good man, just keep spreading her out as she grows and she'll be a fine girl. :+1:

@Ch33cH, thanks! At what point would you stop training the branches to grow horizontally and let them grow vertically?

@Steeluk1987, sounds good. So far no complaints! Good strain.

Tripledrop
Tripledrop week 4

Looking good - she flowered quite early like my one; good to keep her height low but yields won’t be great (1 oz) but I reckon you’ll probably get more based on your setup. SF-4000 is a seriously pro/hacker light my friend :grimacing:

Automaniac

@Tripledrop, I love the purple on yours! I’m hoping for a big yield. Time will tell. :wink:

She look very nice.
Did you ever tried Barney's Farm autoflower seeds?
My experience with their autoflowers was amazing!

@RT_Grows, no, this is my first grow, but I will definitely keep that in mind for when I need to buy more seeds. I’ve also read good things about Barney’s Farm. Your current ladies are beautiful.
