Hi all,

I’ve got a wedding cake that should of been an auto which is clearly a photo.
She’s still in veg and my other autos almost finished.
I away from home and only back every three or four weeks so was not able to train. I’m gonna flip her this weekend. She’s now already up to the light and I’m worried about how much she will stretch.
Thought about super cropping the top?
Any suggestions would be welcomed on how to get her under control 🙏🏼
She’s a beast 🙈 nice problem to have I guess. Cheeky blackberry kush at the front 😎

Another possibility is supercropping. Squash the main stalk about a foot (30 cm) below the top, bend it over at a 90 degree angle and tie it down so it doesn't straighten back up again. (If you've never done this kind of training, the plant will try to straighten up again if you don't tie or wire it down. It often succeeds.)

This way you'll keep your main stalk and associated buds. But it may be too late for this.

Thank you 🙏🏼I’ll see how woody it is. Could be an option if still soft enough.

If it was my plant, I'd take out the middle cola leaving only the side branches, then scrog the whole thing, it should fill your space to capacity, give it a week to recover, then flip it. 👍
This was what i was going to say to do as well. Chop the center out and flatten that girl under a scrog net.

Oh man dunno if I can bring myself to the point of cutting the centre out…
I’ve got another tent with these three in.
It has a bit more height….about a foot I guess.
I could then get both the lights each side of the plant at an angle to give a decent coverage.
The tents only 4x2 and the one she’s in at the moment is 3x3 so it might be squashed one way.
Now she’s got to such a big plant I wanna max out the gramage as much as poss…

That plant will blow through your roof when she stretches.

Hi All,

Well I basically Karl Kushmand the shit of of her.
I crushed the stem until soft

inside then bent her over. Outside has split but no break or snap. Let’s see after a week.
Lower branches will need to go but after stripping her of all dignity and breaking her neck I feel a bit sorry for her…
Will give her a big vitamin, cal mag and seaweed feed and hope she bounces back soon.
Surprised to see she is showing signs of pre flower. Weird, either a 3 months vegging auto or a photo that get tired of waiting for me to flip her 😂🙏🏼

Well the neck breaking didn’t work out. Buds were growing buy I could see they would be small and airy. Decapitated her 10 days ago and seems ok. About wk 5 in flower.

I just tie my colas with a wire twisty. Cutting the main stem top is harmful to the plant and will take an extra two weeks to heal and delay flowering. After watering the plant well the day after, one can bend the tops easily without breaking the stems.. Tieing the main top will force the side branches to grow without delays.

Bit of an update, she’s pulled through ok given the stress she went through. I think about a week to go. Not flushed but stopped feeds over a week ago so hope it’s a nice smoke….decent buds and rock hard. I’ll do a final weigh in and post once it’s dried.
On to the next grow! Gorilla glue, gelato and cali snow
