Q) What techniques can I employ to maximise yield?

I'm not sure they're all the same strain...

Hey brother. I will advise you to let her recover from the over watering before training her. Over water can look like many different issues so it can be tricky to identify. Correct that and let her recover before topping her because she is stressed right now also she is very young and vulnerable so topping will just stress her more and can develop root rot. If you are a first timer in the training techniques I would recommend lst only. Tie your branches down to help her develop the secondaries stems. Since you are growing out doors I wouldn't advise you to defoliate since the leaves help her protect against bugs and plagues. Don't over think, outdoors is almost better to let her do her thing alone. Yields outdoors are big without training. Indoors is better to train since we only have so much room available. Outdoor you can let her grow as big as the season let her... more important right now, fix the over watering. And in a week you will see a huge difference. I hope I was helpful to you my friend. Peace

Hi,

I've received the best results combining a few methods together. Here are the training methods I use and that you can use to maximise yield.

-Topping
-LST (low stress training)
-Defoliating
-Super Cropping
-Scrog (I have a good example of this on my 'Royal gorilla' Diary, can have a look and see what you think) Harvest was super heavy, with around 4-5 oz per plant dry.

Hope this give you a better idea.

Since you have them outside, there's no point in doing too much training beyond the FIM (or TOP) you already did.SCROG or LST is done to ensure all the bud sites get them same amount of light in an indoor setup; but outdoors they will get the same amount of sun regardless of the relative height of the buds to each other.
You can do some minor LST to expose lower branches some more if they are too crowded.

With my autos I use FIM pinching, LST and defoliation (as needed). I’ve tried topping, and HST in the past with good results also, but prefer FIM and LST now. because they cause less stress on the plant. Good luck!

you can try low stress training in combination with the topping you did and when everything grows enough you can definitely try the scrog technique.
keep on buddy looking good!
