Headies Seed.....what to do, what to do
    #124524 - 09/21/08 04:33 PM (8 years, 2 months ago)

I found a seed (the only seed in the half) from some really good weed a bought. And I def. want to grow it out but the season here in PA is shot.

So I was going to start growing it indoors, and was wondering how you keep you plant in the 1-2 ft range but still have lots of buds....all I have to do it cut the top off a few inches every now and then right?

And to make this plant successful what do I need to start her off in?

Look into low stress training, topping, fimming....  Basically any training method.  To keep the plants small you need to flower them sooner then later, plants double their size in flowering.  So if you start with a 1 ft plant, it will stretch to about two feet or so when you induce flowering.

Keeping the plants small like this

Is usually done with clones to start with and not from seed.

You could just shorten the amount of light the plant gets once it reaches the height you want. That will trigger the budding cycle.

Or theres a Tek i read on low stress training before on a differant website that kept the plant small by tieing it down and broduced more buds, so look into that

interesting concept...i like it.

anyone know if the yield is still pretty good with smaller plants?

Like coda said already, the plants stretch when the light cycle is changed to induce flowering, as they start growing to find the light they are no longer receiving. Saying that you could change the light cycle when the plant reaches the height you want it to be doesn't make any sense, because it will then grow two to three times bigger before it starts focusing on bud production. :wink:

Well i always learned that the plants grow good with a lot of light (like when you plant them in the summer and the days are longer) and that when it becomes colder and the days shorten and the plant recieves less light, it begins budding to produce seeds and pollon to reproduce before it dies off from the cold of winter.

Thats where light comes in, its triggers the budding stage because it tricks the plant into thinking its time to reproduce. People use this method to veg thier plants for prolonged periods of time, then decrese light to go into budding whenever they want. But then again that might not work for bdding earlier then it should be.

He could just use the low stress training and that would produce more buds and take up less space anyways

Everything you've said is true, and common knowledge, but just because flowering is induced does not mean that the plant will stop growing; what sirius and others are saying is that it will continue to stretch AFTER flowering is triggered so you have to induce flowering when the plant is about half the size (or less) that you want it to ultimately get...
get it?

however you also (so far as i know) have to wait until the plant is sexually mature before you can start flowering it.

You can get this stuff called bushmaster that keeps your plants realy short and they get super wide and bushy and still yield a few ounces each.

Or you could train them that way. Pretty sure those are clone (could be seed) but they're 12/12 from the start. No veg.
