It took longer for her to kick back into action after the hair cut compared to the smaller one, by at least a day or two. I also noticed a handful of pistils on most of the upper buds die off or go brownish immediately after the haircut but that didn’t happen (or at least wasn’t noticed) on the smaller one.
Since then, it’s not been growing as fast in terms of more/longer pistils popping out and bud sites getting substantially larger along with them. She is filling out but slowly compared to the other.
It’s really apparent when compared to the smaller one, where it’s been bushing up and still looking “young” but the larger one instead appears to be older age-wise and also looks like it is just trying to finish up the buds it has.
I do hope that some patience will pay off here and they’ll both be a decent yield. The plan is to try to extend that first one as long as she’ll let me and to try keeping the smaller one in sync so both can be harvested together.
