Its day 52 and transition day 10/14
It’s definitely time for that – my only advice is:
- don’t take too much at once, can always go for round 2 in a few days – take a bit and then watch her for a few days to see how upset it makes her
- aim for the ones that are “reaching” before the ones with short stems
- top-down and bottom-up: remove stuff from the top first and foremost, but don’t forget to clean up the bottom too (take 2 from top, 2 from bottom, repeat)
- it might feel wrong to take the biggest ones, but they’re often the ones throwing the most shade – from the top of the plant looking downward you should be able to identify the ones that are covering bud sites
I feel like a lot of super cropping is in the future if it’s only transition
And I do mean a lot!
Manipulate them to grow in a circle around the Grobo wall, I use my grobo supports to keep them from the light.
You may have to harvest twice, taking the tops off once they are ripe and then allowing the rest of the plant to mature before taking it out.
I’d cut those bottom ones that won’t produce much right off near the base (but not too close, leave a bit of a nub)
Oooof I better leave alone for a while
The thin one might take the other one might be a bit thick maybe cut further up where it is thinner and softer.
You will want to re-cut them at a 45 degree angle and probably keep them inside a controlled environment (high humidity/etc) for a while. If you put them in there put the top of a 2L bottle over them for a couple weeks to keep the humidity higher. Something like this: https://laidbackgardener.blog/tag/turning-2-liter-soda-bottle-into-a-mini-greenhouse/ but use one bottle for each don’t make them so small. I’d cut the bottom off personally, leave top open so it can breathe a little.
Some rooting gel helps but is not required - if you don’t have any on hand just plant them in wet soil.
Read up a bit more on “rooting clones” for more info, Stephen made a good video about it here:
Also remember that’s an autoflower so it’s not likely to go very far even if it takes but I am interested to see what happens.
I just threw a auto bubblegum seed that I left in a shot glass of water for 5 days into the pot and sohum soil experiment lol will see
Nice, that certainly simplifies things. Good luck.
