I was unaware, that my soil & root ball had become Waterlogged. I over-watered it, while distracted and (frankly) just plain old "Having a bad day"....and that was it. Quickly. Totally my fault.

I leave it open to each individual's interpretation. Maybe, if they read my post, someone else WON'T make the same mistake I did....oh, well. Movin' on.
When I first started growing I was shaking my males saying “hey look at this weird shit”. (This was pre-internet.) Probably wiped out an few hectares of sensimilla.

Bent over like that she only gets about 2 1/2 foot tall and yields 5-6 ounces. That's a Strain called Made of Honor and She is super stretchy. To the point the breeder warns about the stretch in the seed description.

But I like a challenge, and keeping her and several other strains and phenos all in the same grow area is a challenge for sure. Its all about an even canopy in flower. Even canopy, equals even light distribution, in turn equaling more yield. Its all strain and pheno specific of course.

Some strains get bent over, some get topped and some get no training at all, depends on the plant. They always let you know how to treat them...

Beautiful plants man!
Thank you! Those are my first plants using led lights, I was a hps/mh guy for many years and finally took the plunge to led a few months ago. So happy with the results so far and I can say it looks like I picked a light that is very comparable to my old 1000 watt hps. Still don't know about yield or potency, but we shall see...

Some probably wont like this. But after much thought and research, I went with a "China light"...Meijiu 650w A8 from Alibaba. This light is a beast! I've never had such light coverage in a 4x4 with a 1000 watt bulb. Fits a 4x4 space perfectly. IDK if the specs are correct or inflated, I don't have a light meter, so I'm just kinda shooting in the dark when it comes to light intensity. But I do know, so far I am happy with my purchase.

Like I said before I still don't know about yield or potency, but I will keep the forum updated as to the results...

I really need to invest in some autos! I germinated around Thanksgiving, and I only have like a 11” plant so far. But she is growing nicely after topping. I just hope I haven’t wasted all this time on a bust. This is my first grow so I only did one to not get overwhelmed. Plus the seed was a freebie from my medical stash. It’s been fun but so stressful at times. Not to mention I’m impatient as hell lol

They are all made in China...
It looks like a nice piece. I like how it covers the whole 4x4 space.

I only have 1 600w full spectrum led. And I’m feeding according to cold war’s recommendation at 2x/week. Should I keep schedule and up the dose?

Feed according to the plants and a 600w LED can absolutely cook plants...
