  8. I wait until the third node has developed a little and cut right above it. Every one after that is up to the person. As long as the are not autoflowers

  9. Thank you ! And did you transplant your plants into its final pot (im going with solocups and then switching to a 3g pot) before you started mainlining ?

  10. Looking good. You’re not in final pots yet. You should get some mykos or similar. It really helps them explode early. Since I used it I won’t run soil mix without it. It easily doubled the growth rate over soil without it.
  11. I agree with monster. Transplant, use mykos, wait for em to recover, chop em.
    Never top a unhealthy, recovering plant.
    Other than that. Dont play with it too much in flower.

  12. What are mykos? And where would i be able to get them ? Also this is my first grow so I wasn’t gonna feed any nutrients till the final week or 2 of vegetative stage and all throughout flowering till the flush before harvest. Should I do it differently?
  13. When should i use mykos ? Not really sure what they are , and when did you start feeding your plants nutrients ? I wasn’t planning on giving mine anything but soil and water till maybe a week before i start flowering and then all throughout the flowering stage untill the flush before harvest
  14. Mykos or michorazee or how ever they spell it just gets mixed in the soil. Good to use soon as plant has a root.

  15. Quick question , my plants are currently 12 days old (only counting days since moved under light) and everytime I water them I don’t give then a measured amount of water i just spray each like 5 times to keep the top of the soil moist. Should i continue just only spraying them until i transplant ? Or give them a measured amount and just spray a couple times throught the days to keep the leaves moist?
  16. Throughout the day*^
  17. Also once I move them to a 3gallon pot how much water should i give them ? I heard of 1Liter per Gallon
  18. I approximate it by size of plant and pour in a circle around the plant getting bigger each watering to entice the roots outward
