    Hi, Once you get this far (i.e. 7 stems pointing upwards, all about same height, one main one and 6 side branches growing upwards from the main stem that you tied down) do you then prune out side shoots from the main stem? If the aim is for about 8 tops/colas per square foot, then I assume...

    Red yellow and blue tarps as shade cloth?

    Any reason to think that this is a bad idea? This is the south side of the greenhouse. The north side of the roof, which has only half the square footage, has blue tarps, opaque tarps, and no tarps, so there's at least some white light getting in.
