Week 6 (Vegetative)
From the Grower Was a slow start...plant was a vibrant seedling that grew sick and weak in the 1st couple of weeks. After 3 weeks of stunted growth and yellowing drooping leaves, I transplanted the entire plant into a new 5 gal fiber pot in pro-mix seedling starter soil mixed 60/40 with perlite.
The entire root system was severely shocked and damaged. However, after a week the plant took off, vibrant and green with a main stem as thick as a pencil! I even cut the top off the main stem at this time.
At week 5, I topped each of the 2 new stems, which resulted in new growth of 4 main stems! The plant stuttered for a few days then took off growing again!
At this time I also “bonsai’ed” the plant by pulling down all 4 main stems with string loops carefully placed on select branches, secured to paper clamps attached to the edges of the fiber pot. The plant now has numerous colas, all pointing up to the light, yet a wide short canopy.
I’ll add. Photo of what it looks like after 6 weeks of enduring the trauma I inflicted on it. My hope is that another 4 weeks of vegetative growth and the plant will be tough, vibrant, bushy and capable of holding up heavy flowers, once I switch to flowering light schedule of 12/12.
My current feeding schedule is nutrients / plain ph balanced water every other feeding. I’m giving her 2 litres every 3 days.
