{April 2, 2009}   Adjusting to their final home

The girlies are a little stressed out from the move here. Before they get established, I tend to water them more. At the first sign of floppy leaves, I water. After they are established, I let about half of them get a little floppy before I water. They usually go on the timer (15 minutes every 24 hours) when they have been in there for a week or two. I veg them in the flower chamber until the tips reach the bottom of the net.

At this point, they have been topped twice. Topping is a pruning technique used to increase the amount of top flowers. It is done by cutting the top branch right above a growth node at a 45 degree angle.

I use a technique called supercropping as well. This is done by pinching the stalk between growth nodes to produce scar tissue. More scar tissue means stronger stalks, which will support heavier buds.
