I started out with delusions of a wall to wall growth of "short and steady" auto's, insted I have a one plant SOG. LOL
Took me a bit to get the feel of it...what amazes me is how little it phases them and how quick they want to grow up again. I have to bend and rebend and rebend or they shoot straight back up from a 90' angle!I got the super cropping down for this plant. I needed to pinch and roll the stem in my fingers like twisting a joint "all the way around"; how Ironic!
You need 60X or more magnification for the trichomes to accurately determine when to harvest. I use a USB microscope as my hands are not steady enough for a hand held device.Been a while but here's an update.
Nearly all main branches have been super cropped (one twice) and since Nuggets come in many shapes and sizes, I have no idea what the final bud should look like or when it's ripe enough for harvest.
If you can tell by these, how far to harvest?
