    Thanks for the heads up. This is just one of the many reasons I love this site. You can get an education, and enjoy doing it, at any age.

    "Wagyu" I'm likin' the idea more and more.

    2) Shoots grow vertically off the stems
    3) Controls the over all height
    4) Stimulates stem growth by bending the stems (stress's the inner herd, causing it to grow stronger and bigger)
    5) Increase in overall yield

    This process starts early in plant development. Begin training when you have either FIM, pinched, or topped your plants. I firmly believe in FIMming and have had excellent success doing so. But the first step is to get paper clips that have plastic coatings. You do not want to get ones that are silver as they create hot spots and will hamper growth. Bend them straight out -- they will be about 3” in length. You then bend the first ˝ inch into a hook so you have what resembles a walking cane, but with a paper clip. You then proceed to bend the stems down parallel with the medium. You should end up with a “T” when you’re done. You’re going to continue to train the stems parallel with the medium until you want to begin flowering.

    When you do finally decide to induce flowering, all the training will pay off. What would have been your tiny and airy bottom buds. Will now turn into nice, photogenic colas.

    I recommend and use ESU Greenleaves: Boost Juice, I find it improves vigor and vegetative growth rates.

    Thanks Chubbs, but as you can see I got the idea from Medical Marijuana. Had I followed his directions to the letter, she would have probably looked much better. I used General Hydro nutes and something called "Humboldt Counties Own BushMaster". It's a product designed to limit the heigth of the plant. Seems to have worked well I think. If you stood her up straight, she'd only be about 16".

    Just a little California nug from a friend. All I know about it is that it's organic.

    Your plant is looking beautiful! I am amazed at how well you trained her to grow like that. I almost forgot to ask, How is that California Organic Bud smoking?

    Re: A First Time For Everything

    My California bud was really nice. Pleasant flavor with a heady kind of a high. Vaped nicely and we laughed our asses off for hours.

    Ok, here are a some new pics of my little girl.









    Maybe I was expecting too much but the buds have slowed their vertical growth considerably, and put on some width at the bottom. If you stood her up straight she is only about 16 inches tall. The buds average between 3 to 4 inches in length. There are no where near as many trichomes as I had hoped for and what I've got is a mixture from clear to amber so I don't expect to much more growth. I'm guessing roughly 25% clear, 50% milky, and 25% amber. They have not quite reached the 50/50 stage yet but I don't think it will be much longer.

    I realize that a sativa is more suited to helping with my epilepsy but I have to do with what I have. If I understand correctly the longer you wait the more of a couch lock type of high you get. I'd rather have a more heady type if possible.

    I don't want to pull her too early, but I don't want that deep couch lock thing either. Ok pros, here's the question of the day. Any idea how much longer I should wait?

    Re: A First Time For Everything

    Ok guys and gals,

    First off, sorry for the long delay in finishing up this thread. I had some problems with my seizure meds and it had me down for a while, and I didn't have enough of MY meds to take up the slack.

    I finished up my girl and she turned out real nice. Enough so that I am starting my second grow (same Micro Hydro as before). I'll be doing a better job of keeping my journal up so take a look at Carolina Rebel's Grow #2. Thanks for all the help to Moose, Boss, and all the others who helped.

    420Blastabowl: I've been having seizures about 9 years now and what I've found out (for me anyway) is that anything works better that what they (the VA) give me. I even participated in a drug trial, but that only lasted about 2 years before it quit working. The ONLY meds I have had consistent success with is cannabis. For me the best results are about a 70/30-60/40 sativa dominant. Unfortunately I don't have the option of being choosy, so I'm happy with what I get.

    Did you get any finished shots? Or shall we move this to completed journals?
