Glad you reposted that quad tutorial...bookmarked along with your washing vid.
Indeed you do! The selective defoliation is important as well which I’ll be going over in this evenings update!I was wondering if we should tie down the other branches that come up on the 3erd and 4th node branches, Now I know tie them down too. Thanks Dutch
Thanks Baron! I try to run as clean a setup as possibleZiet er super helder uit, super schoon.
And you can take that to the bank.
Thanks N420! Appreciate the kind words!Nice update Dutch and nice pictures! Really shows the quadline training makes it look simple great job as always.
@Duggan is a good teacher so I would agree! Keeping it simple is always a good rule to stand by! Once you get a feel for the plants then you can start implementing training techniques. Keep at it PC!Well I hate to say my Mentor Duggan says to not try quadlining with this grow he says I have enough going on already but this coming spring I will quadline my plants I grow in my greenhouse. Maybe I can sneak and do the 4th and 3erd branches with a quadline. I don't want to be a bad student though so I will ask him before I do anything. Even if I cant do it till this coming spring This tutorial will be a BIG Help Thanks Dutch
Jeez Dutch, do you just sit by the plants 24/7 waiting for the exact second the pistils show themselves? The plants are looking great. Thanks for including so much useful information/educational material in your journal, very good read through.Another confirmed female.
Thanks Shed!Great growth Dutch!
On the quad, I'd leave the fans attached to the bottom growth tips to create more photosynthesis, considering how much foliage has already been taken at this stage. You can always take them off as you get more leaf growth above it.
Maybe..... lol! No but I do tend to my garden daily and it’s just a part of my thorough daily inspections! I look at all my plants leaves and soil each day to ensure my garden health! I’m really glad your enjoying the journal so far. Lots more to come along the journey ahead so I hope you can get some more information as well.Jeez Dutch, do you just sit by the plants 24/7 waiting for the exact second the pistils show themselves?

Typically top above node 4 and remove nodes 1-2. I’ve seen a few use nodes 4-5 and nodes 2-3 but I stick with nodes3 and 4 because by that stage in the plants life it’s mature enough and has good foliage to recover from the initial topping and node stripping. Waiting just allows the plant to grow stronger.Excellent stuff Dutch. I will try doing a quad one day. Does it matter which nodes are used for the first cut? I was just interested to know why you wait for the plant to grow as much as it does before the training begins. Cheers buddy
Thanks Bobby! It’s a work in progress and really coming alongWow Dutch, that 4x4 looks great. Nice training.
