Probably not what you had in mind, but it should still let more light through.


LOL

I just folded the blades of the leaves under one another and tied them in place. Then i just pulled the branch off to the side.

Yeah my gnats came from the soil.

I'm gonna take those spikes out in like 2 weeks. Just wanted to make sure it had enough N for the flowering growth spurt.

that is good also, but try attaching the string to the actual branch that shoots out between the main stalk and the stem of the fan leaf. Pull the branch itself out to the side of the plant so that it gets more light. Pulling the fan leaves asid will get more light to the branches, but pulling the branches away from the main stalk will give them opportunity to grow upward to the top while being far enough to the side to get full sun, just like the main cola.

You don't want to fold up the fan leaves, they produce the sugars that produce the buds.

Yeah, the gnats live in the soil thats why diatomaceous earth is so helpful when it is completely covering the soil. They have nowhere to live. Also try not to water unless the top soil is completely dry,

Passing the time trying to figure out how to pass the time without trying to forget how time passes.

Thanks for the info.

I let the soil dry out real well before I watered this last time. I've barely seen any gnats for the past few days. I really hope they're gone.

I know your strapped for cash and these are kinda pricey but they work good for me and i thought maybe next grow you might want to try this method of training.

The hook with the weight on it are kinda pricey and you could probably use cheaper hooks and the lead weight. The 2 oz lead weight I get at walmart and they are pretty cheap.



Once you attatch the weight to the hook then just hang it where you want it.

it is kinda hard to see the hook in this picture

I like the idea of "weight training" my plant.

Here he is in his final days before I take him down.






I fail horribly at macro shots or I would have taken some pics of the flowers. Bunch of little ball clusters with no hairs.

I'm still happy with the way it turned out despite it being a male. At least now I have a little more experience for my next grow.

Thanks to all of you for your help!

Well congratz on getting him all grown up! Just grab some seeds from your next bag - i'd suggest doing 6 at a time minimum to ensure at least one is male.... if all you want is one, than just grow them till they sex and keep the healthiest female.

Hey, you made a pot plant though. Chop it down, plant some seeds, and back on that fucking horse.

Really appreciate the offer, but I should be able to get everything I need from Wal-Mart real soon.

I'll definately take you up on your seed offer though. I'm running low on seeds and I don't have any connections anymore. I actually haven't smoked in months. I can only imagine how stoned I'll get when I get my first successful harvest! I have 1 Dutch Passion White Widow seed that I'm saving until I get growing down. I've got a few bag seeds also that I've saved. Once I get seeds of my own I'll definately be sharing them!!

The only thing I plan on doing different next time is using the right nutes for veg and flower instead of using an all purpose fert. I may end up doing some other wacky stuff to train my plant too. We'll see. Send me a PM anytime if you want to compare notes.
