Hello all,

I hope all of you are safe ! So I thought I'd give this a shot since I've tested the strain before for HST and she handles without a flinch. Starting with an autoflowering white widow, 10% ruderalis in the genes help get a long veg and a nice flowering time, veg period was around 7-8 weeks, so plenty of time to top and mainline.
Growing in a tiny closet, 3x2, I barely have enough space. Headroom is too little as well. Ive decided to mainline for 8 colas. Autoflowers are notorious for producing larf, potent, but terribly frustrating to deal with. 8 equal colas will give me the quality I need. I grow for myself and loved ones, and I try my best to keep my community happy in severe prohibition. I will keep this thread as my mainlining journal, as if this proves to be effective, I will be using this technique with all my grows.
Topped 3 days ago, the key with autos is to keep the stress as light as possible, i.e if I top on Monday, I do not touch the plant for at least 4-5 days until the tops on the 3rd node have picked up the pace. After the tops have started to show some size, I will defoliate and remove everything bellow the 3rd node.
