I am growing 4 Bannon Fast autos. They are looking real good at 6 weeks. Since they are fast growing Autos, I don’t train them, other than rotating daily. Nor have I pruned them other than some fan leaves at the bottom that were falling into the dirt. No topping.
Been in one light cycle since post-seedling. 18/6.
These places are screaming with future buds. They are full of calyxes from top to bottom. But the leaves are getting so dense that I’m having trouble getting light penetration into the lower pre-buds.
I saw some growers tilting their light to increase penetration and imitate normal sunlight. I am giving that a try. I figure the light can get under the leaves at an angle.
I see some people whacking the lower branches like a banjee with a machete. I was good with that with my photos but these Autos have a mind of their own and I don’t want to be whacking while they are flipping and they are getting ready to flip.
I looked at doing LST this morning but there is only one main stalk per plant. With my photos, I would snip the top so it split and that was what I trained by pulling apart. I don’t see much to train here. I do have my net that I use with Photos at this point. Might be able to get some spread with it. The problem with a training net is that once in place, you can’t move anything!!
Trying to keep my yield high. Suggestions from senior growers are appreciated.!
