It has only been one day so...... It wasn't too hard since my "roof" is a 3' wide sliding glass door section and I scored 250 - 5' x 5 foot used fence boards - so I just built a 10" high frame to fit the door, set it in place and then set the door back on that. I'll post a pic soon but should I "top" these girls. They seem spindly.

Don’t top or anything untill pictures are posted. Topping is a great way of keeping an even canopy! :thumb:

Holy camoli! :11: Those are tall plants!

Your going to run out of room when they finally switch to flower. I would suggest getting ready to tie branches up as the weight of the buds may tip over. :thumb:

yeah it does look like your starting to see pistils. Right on let the fun begin!

Another quick question - if I don't optimize these plants and let them just grow naturally - would 4 plants produce enough for a years worth of pleasure?? I'm reeeeaaaaallly new at this!!!
Hard to say, with 4 plants I would imagine so, but there’s ways to train your plant to optimize your yields, keeping a smaller canopy but with more main colas. There’s many ways to skin a cat. So you can read up on super cropping, fim, Lst, topping etc. And maybe utilizing some of that information for your future grows. :thumb:

Thanx Backlipslide - Yeah I got more pistils than Yosemite Sam!!!! I sure wish I'd studied this much 55 years ago when I was in school !!!! I coulda been a Rocket Surgeon!!!
Lol yes it makes me wish I studied it a lot earlier then I did my self. That entire “weed is bad, you’ll go to jail for growing it” thing always held me back lol so I’ve only been in the hobby for about a year now, learning everyday and expanding my knowledge to others.

14 weeks and growing strong. It’s getting difficult to take pics in the greenhouse from anywhere but the front door, but I included one anyways. It’s hard to tell what’s going on but the ladies are approx 8 feet and have been tied over to stretch away as they like. I should have almost a couple more weeks before flowering...

The greenhouse girls are all trained at about 70 degree angle and run straight down the roofline at about 5 1/2 feet. There are 4 in there that are well over 8 feet. Can’t measure with the bend but I want to measure the stalk after harvest to see how tall they got that was all I did...this is my first grow but I’ve had lots to read here and am planning a possible indoor grow over the winter to practice some of what I’ve learned.

What ever your doing, keep it up man!! Your doing great!! Scary to think you haven’t even experimented with much lst or super cropping, or fimming of any sort! Your going to take this hobby by storm and do big things! :thumb:

Hey Kanda - Reach for the stars!!! :goof: Once my girls reached 6' 6" I bit the bullet and topped 2 of them, moved one outside and will make more decisions today. My greenhouse was getting real crowded - 4' x 7'. The three forest dwellers have not reached the height of the shutins - I'll have to measure today.
Well done Kanda!!

❤ Thanks for all the positive vibes! I’m sure my girls feel the love too.

I’m loving growing, in fact the addiction develops a little more every day lol
I just dropped 2 blackberry auto, 2 CBD elixir auto and 2 green poison auto. Am waiting for dark devil auto to arrive. All will be in supersoil and fed just water.

I’m going to have to get planning for greenhouse heating so all girls have time to finish properly.
