Trying to get the tops to grow in centre

I agree with Oldbear, however if you bend the tall colas so their tops are below the others you want to get going, then the plant hormones will tell them to get to growing.(the shorties) Happy choosing

Hey a possible opportunity for an experiment. Bend over half the long branches (one side) then you can compare results at the end.

All good suggestions and accepted good practices.

But, I’m sitting here wondering why you want to do anything - what is the problem you are trying to resolve?

The sunlight she is getting has travelled 93 million miles. Another 3 inches won’t change anything. Lol

I love all the feedback! Wow you all are friggin awesome and rock!!

Hahaha so I came home today and started to do a bit more bending. The plant on the far right is a sativa just a monster mother eesh, perfect for cloning! But I am not going there this year.

I have a little girl catching up it’s been topped and I have bent her.

Here’s latest pics just taken.
Cheers!

No plant "needs" it mate, it's just fun :)
Certainly beneficial outdoors if they have the capability to get big enough to require it though imo.
Sorry but Beneficial how? big enough to require what?

Well if you're growing outside in 20l pots then they're most likely not gonna get very big so best just left to grow as Christmas trees.
Plant them in the ground though and they have the capability to grow as big as your living room. If you train them to do it.

Okey here’s a update on the girls under the net this picture is not the greatest tonight is feeding so tmrw morning I will take better ones. Let me know tmrw, if I should keep the net and raise it as the plants get taller or just put another net over the other, I am skeptic about the extra net, it’s causing the air flow to not breathe as well as if the net is off don’t you agree.? Idk

Hey, so they are in the ground but I have made a mistake by planting to close together. I’m hoping that they will still form and develop as big as possible. It’s been humid they still have not yet hit flower phase I would assume in a couple weeks I’ll notice. Anytime now. I’m curious I am wondering about training is it okay to keep training at this point outdoors as plants are matured? I’m noticing they are much more delicate being I have broke a couple branches.

Hi Lochness, you can remove the net for air flow. I might/would. I might cut a branch here and there too. As time goes keep looking at them and see if you can help with some trimming. If you can spread some branches out to the outsides that could help too. Not too much but open in the middle is good.

Here’s what I did this morning I opened up my sativa plant she is a beast and keeps growing like crazy. The Strain is called yeah buddy.
