    Default Skunky's Proper Mainline With Some Help From Dexter

    Welcome to Skunky's Mainline with Mentor Dexter

    My last attempt was BOTCHED, scrapped her in the front yard today.

    Now this is a single plant grown along side some other ladies. I will only diary her on this.

    Strain: Nitro Lemon Haze, Dark Star, and LSD . All pretty much indica dominant
    Lighting veg: 600W MH
    Lighting flower: 1000W HPS
    Medium: Soil 80% Happy Frog 20% Perlite and finish her in 80% Ocean Forest 20% Perlite
    Container: Current is 1 GL finishing in 5 G Smart Pot
    Temps: 78 degrees lights on and 68 degrees lights off.
    RH: 65%
    Pests: I have a bit of a fungus gnat problem but yellow sticky paper keeping things at bay.
    Light schedule : 12 on 5.5 off 1 on and 5.5 off............... Help on the electric a bit.
    Plan again is to mainline properly and not botch it up like I did on my previous attempt.

    She has a nice place to sit with lots of airflow right now. Here are the pictures of the girls Dexter if you want to pick 1:

    NLH


    LSD


    DS


    Now they all have been topped at roughly the 4th node. I can cut lower you would like.

    Either way I wont stay super active on this grow but I will update weekly or bi weekly. Thanks Dexter for offering to step in.... I believe in the concept, but I am sure we can nail it. The DS and NLH will have a control plant grow with it also. Word, well feel free to chime in with tips or questions. This is guided more towards new growers to the ART of mainlining cause its not as easy as Dexter makes it look. Thanks again and WELCOME!!!

    Side branches didn't show up on the pic the best. They all have good node growth tho, from node 1 - 4 I know she has to be stripped.........


    Also note the leaf growth ain't the best.... I just got them under the mh bulb they were started under cfl...... Not a fan but regardless they have some proper lighting now.

    Haha... That was a quick one Skunky...

    I'm on board bro but just getting ready to hit the sack so I'll take a good look at the girls tomorrow...

    NLH looks like a great candidate but I can't see the pic in the second set so grab another if you can and I'll have a look in the morning...

    Happy to help btw...

    Nitro Lemon Haze is growing very nice. I have her currently topped at 4 however I can bring it lower. She has some very nice first node branching.

    That I am.... He helped me out on my last one, but this time we will get some results. I messed up mine last time letting them get to much developed... uneeded..... growth.... This time we will have her done proper.

    Sorry brother, had some problems to sort...

    Let's go with NLH then cause she looks like a prime candidate and has great lateral growth...

    Sharpen the scissors and get to chopping my friend, we need her topped above the third node and also remove the two nodes below unless you want to keep second node for clones... You're also leaving the fans directly attached to the third node...

    If you don't want clones the end result should be something like this...



    And if you want clones than leave the second node on until it reaches desired size and then you'll have two perfectly symmetrical clones...



    Once those new shoots grow a bit we will supercrop her like I showed you in my diary...


    There should be around 5 days to a week between steps if she has a healthy root zone so three weeks from now you should be read to flip her...

    Good luck bro...

    So nlh it is.....

    Here she is before



    Now trimmed off the bottom two modes...



    Now for the top at node 3.



    A bit of supercropping....



    And finally tie her down.



    All together much smoother this time. I think it went well, I need to bury the stem a bit more when I repot. Will be about 3 week till I pot up. Thanks again Dexter, whatcha think?

    Like I said I won't update till the next cut most likely....

    The theory behind it is it allows for totally even division of nutrients.... All 8 colas should be completely symmetrical at the end of this grow. Just top it 3 time. Once for 2 twice for 4 and a third time for 8. Should be a good grow Dexter is the man at mainlining.

    Skunky, or you going to clone that top you cut off? Or just put it in the ice hash bag?

    Ok so I have 3 nodes now on the two shoots. Go ahead and top..... And then do I clear out all the growth before or wait till the new tops start?

    Evening Skunky...

    If you're going for s tighter canopy than top her at first node and if you want a wider spread top at third node...

    Would be nice to see the progress before each step...

    Well here she is right before and after I topped her. I'm still working in the stems..... They keep on just springing right back to the top.




    So the remaining growth should I leave it till the new tops come in?

    I'm not seeing any difference in those pictures mate so could you upload another one and I'd recommend to tie her to the pot instead...

    Something like this...



    She chugging along nicely but don't get to scissor happy bro cause I would have waited two-three more days before topping this time cause if you top to early it will just take more time to recover...
