Wow Fish - seeing your plants makes me really hope my clones root - I'm anxious to see if I can keep them nice and tight like those - mine were so leggy and spindly. I want to see if it was breed or conditions.
Thanks, @greenjeans. I wish that I could say, "oh, that's my patented technique for growing tight plants" but it's probably mostly genetics, if I had to guess. I will say this, however, these things started under the Mars Hydro SP-250 (great sponsor of this site) from germinated seeds. They know nothing else. It's bright and it's white and it's intense. I don't believe that there has been any stretching for the light because there has been plenty from day 1. Anyhoo, thank you for the kind words, my friend.Wow Fish - seeing your plants makes me really hope my clones root - I'm anxious to see if I can keep them nice and tight like those - mine were so leggy and spindly.

I like where your head's at because I haven't moved the light up since these ladies started growing. The tallest one is approaching 6 inches, now. If my math is correct, that's nearly 6 inches closer to the light than she started. Somebody check my numbers. Anyway, I moved the light up 6 inches. I may have to prop up JH #3 a little to get her even with the other two. Thanks, BacklipHow close is your light? Your plants almost look to be working away from it. They should be up and almost reaching for the light. Other then my $0.02 their looking great! Also careful leaving soil on the leaves, not sure at exactly what it would do, but the leaf may be put in distress for what ever reason
I’ll have to check out that movie, got me intrigued!
Well Al, let me tell you, I went into first-responder mode when I saw those girls yesterday after work. My previous mistake became clear because all of them were "clawing" down and there were shiny, dark green patches on the leaves. (I wish that I thought to grab some pictures). It looked to me like obvious nitrogen poisoning (from the myco-bloom, I guess). I grabbed my gallon of spring water and just started flushing. I checked on them after dinner and they had already started bouncing back. And this morning, this is what they looked like:Don't overwater like I did. Let them go a day or three and see what happens.
Thanks @Smokiemcpot19. This is why I posed the question. It was going to be hard to chop off all of that growth, so between the 5th and 6th won't be so bad.I top my autos between the 5th and 6th node and always at the top of the plant, don't chop them in half to top it.
No problem man I didn't wanna see you chop her in half lol, watch a few vids on topping cannabis on the ol boob tube i had to do the same before i was comfortable to cut mine.
