I have a question that I'm guessing has not been asked before. Let me preface the question by saying I have an outdoor AK47with two top colas standing at 200 cm/79 inches tall. This is only my second grow and last year was a nightmare due to caterpillar infestation. I literally threw away pounds of my precious grow! This year I have been spraying with BT but my plan was to discontinue spraying two weeks before harvest and cover with butterfly netting. I have 8 foot bamboo stakes intended to support the netting. The problem is, and I suppose it's a good problem to have, those top colas are taller than the tops of the stakes. I've tried several methods of extending the top but haven't found any solution. I'm contemplating cutting down the top colas in order to accommodate the netting, but here's my question: Does anyone know if a branch can be cut, placed in water, and continue to ripen for about a week? She's not quite ready but does have milky trichomes.
