polymers hold and slowly release water? I've heard a lot about them from outdoor growers but never tried myself.

you can make some HUGE outdo bushes




while you can make huge bushes, each plant has a genetic threshold for total yield.  So even if you did make a plant the size of a bathtub, it may produce the same amount of bud had you just left it alone.  That being said, it doesn't hurt to LST your plants to encourage the best yield, but at some point you'll hit a ceiling and all you'll end up doing is producing many small buds, instead of fewer, larger ones.

OK well I have one more question for everyone. Im beginning to see preflowers I believe but I need some help. Some of the plants are showing 2 hairs and some are showing 1 hair and a little ball.

Where SHOULD I be looking?
Are preflowers 100% acurate?

I feel like I should get rid of the males because they are just taking up space. I dont remember but I think 1 or 2 of them is also showing 2 hairs and a ball. HELP!! :smile:

haha, you should get rid of the males for many different reasons,

the main being its gonna polinate your fems.

if you want some seeds, then do the breeding yourself, but get the males OUT OUT OUT, when he or they smell those ladies, theyre gonna blow all over them and your gonna have a seedy mess.

get some more pics up bro.

when in doubt yank em out.

if theyve got balls enough for you to question it, theyre most likely males. but get some pics up so we can say

I don't know if one should really say that, since the preflowers could just be forming and they can sometimes be ambiguous at first. By the time it would be risky to wait, it should be pretty clear what sex they are, I would think.

yeah sorry i didnt clarify.

i thought i said somethin along the lines that if its far enough to have them polinate, its far enough to tell whether theyre male or fem.

but i didnt.

so now we must battle :matrix2:

I took about 15 pics and this is the only one that you can kind of make out but its still blurry.



You can see the 2 little hairs. Obviously this one is female. A few of the others are showing these too but a few are not. I ripped one out that was def male (tall, not bushy, not hairs). The others are iffy

by the time a males pollen sacs are mature it would be so very easy to tell tis a male

it has little pods all over the place.

Thats how I do it guerrilla style, just a process of elimination. Yank the definite males, mark the definite females, and if some are still a question, come back in a week or two.
