Plant is too tall?
    #569054 - 07/02/11 03:27 PM (5 years, 5 months ago)

Just checked my girls and the tallest one is just taking off like I've never seen before. It's about 7' 6" and I'm only 5' 10" :lol:
So I was wondering what do people do when their plants are this tall? I mean I can't get up there to do anything that may need to be done- trim leafs, take off bugs, shake off water, inspect buds when they come, unravel fingers from spider webs etc. It's very healthy at the moment but when it starts flowering I know I'll have to shake off lots of water because of my location. I can't use a ladder or even a step stool because it's on a slope. I was thinking the only thing to do is to lst it.

So any thoughts? :vaped:

How long did you veg?!?!
When you flower her, she's gonna at least DOUBLE in size, so you need to do some LST work on her. I assume at that size that the main stem has become woody, but if it still has some pliability you need to bend her down and tie the top to the stem or to a stake down below.
On the other hand, (I'm assuming she's outdoors) you could just let her grow, if security isn't an issue, let her turn into a Christmas tree, you don't necessarily need to have access to the top of an outdoor tree, she'll do fine on her own.

I started these plants on 4/20 indoors and moved them outside on 5/20.
This is the first time I've planted right into the ground and first time I've had a plant this big :laugh:

Now that I know the top will be ok I'll measure the surrounding plants. I think the hedgerow protecting them is about 15' so it might be pushing it. Security will only be an issue if they get bigger than the sumacs and hedgerow. The stem is still soft enough to train

Thanks for the info

I'll try to get some pics :lol:

Thanks for the link mhbound that's awesome. I'm gonna have to decide now what to do. What I'm mainly worried about with leaving it tall is mold. There's been a lot of rain this year and I'll probably have to shake off the buds quite a bit

did it grow that big while it was outdoors?
i didnt know natural soil could do that, everybody makes it sound like soil is bad, but obviously not. I'm a total noob, so sorry if this sounds stupid, but couldn't you just FIM a big chunk of the top, and just keep on bonsaïng it until you start flowering?

If its growing on a slope I would go uphill and tie it a few times from mid stem to the top into stakes into the ground, so it kinda grows with the slope as much as possible.

But yea, pics asap!

I had it indoors on 24/0 for a month, then put it outside. So yeah the vast majority of growth happened outside. They were only about a foot tall when I put them out. :lol: Soil isn't bad at all. Pretty sure soil will always give you the smoothest and best tasting smoke. I don't FIM just because I don't know how, but it's an option.

Ya I think I'm gonna train it like that, might have to go to the side though, there isn't much room with the sumacs and hedgerow to go uphill
