They don’t mean that they grow exactly back in that spot you snipped but more fan leaves grow out. Smart ass lol always trying to find any flaw in everyone’s posts
Not looking for flaws anywhere. I just keep hearing people repeat that line without explaining. Its like they just repeat what they read online. Some of the newbies actually believe the cut leaves grow back.

Thanks for all the advice.

Gonna snip a few of the bigger fan leaves tomo. Like I mentioned earlier, I’m scared of going too far in case they hermie, but I know they need thinning out.

Spent 2 hours weaving and repositioning tops tonight. Crazy how much time you can spend/lose doing that.

The LST before scrog worked well. All 6 plants are virtually horizontal under the screen. The H pattern the pots are in, worked as I anticipated.

8 days into 12/12 now. I’m expecting stretch in the next week, but I’m hoping the horizontal stems and multiple tops will reduce it.

in my brief experience, in general, these plants can handle a lot of shit.

I might be wrong but I think feminised seeds are behind a lot of hermie issues.

I ran a pack of regulars this time because I wanted to find a couple of keepers for mums.

These cuts rooted super quick and exploded out of solo cups so I know they got a good start and haven’t been overly stressed at any point.

It’s nice doing your own rather than buying cuts. Def know what you’ve got too.

I’ve not grown for over a year. My last run was with cuts from the hydro shop.

They weren’t what they said they were. I knew as soon as the smell developed and was pissed off for the rest of the grow. Then I had to smoke what seemed like endless jars of it.

I hate amnesia haze and the smell is unmistakable. Never bought a cut since.

I took a few where things were really bushy to improve airflow. Didn’t go crazy.

i hate any Haze.

this is also why i dont bother with "strains/names" as much, without genetic testing and "comparable samples", i feel its fucking useless.

Well I know she wasnt a auto because I cloned her and saw the pheno was worth keeping so by the time this happened she was about 8 months in vegg so it would have auto flowered much earlier 😆 and I can't keep a pheno that isent stable does me no good I don't want babys to hermi I don't really have the time to try predicting if it was worth keeping or not don't have the most real-estate and.....I don't want pollen to pollinate any other plants or accidentally have pollen on me and go into flowering room

I smoked some barneys dosidos. Was ok but it wasn’t dosi.

My mate grew some purple city genetics which hermied real bad, was his fault though.

Hoping Archive will be 🔥

Problem with many genetics is they been stepped on so much and there genetic pools are so muddy i heard fruity pebbles and runtz is kinds like that but many people that grow dos si dos say there phenos looks great but it's missing the nose or they herm if your lucky you will stumble on a good pheno there's one out there just haven't found it

I think it’s people taking shortcuts a lot of the time. They takes someone’s work, sprinkle a bit of silver on it and sell feminised seeds that are prone to herm.

I never buy seeds from companies that sell only feminized seeds.

I took the long route this time. Pack of regular seeds from Archive and kept the best females.

They are starting to stretch now.
