micro topping fail, most roots out of net pot

I'm a little confused by your post.....,.What do you mean by "the best stock got cut last night"? What do you mean by "micro topping fail"? What is your reasoning behind wanting to cut the fan leaves off? The plant needs those "solar panels".

those were just notes on the plant:

- I tried to top it but cut too little (micro) and the plant did not respond at all
- I cut off and cloned the best branch on the whole plant (2 nights ago)
- this plant has the most roots growing outside the net pot compared to the other three

none of the branches are doing much growing (except for the one) but these 6 leaves are doing GREAT... maybe I could convince the plant to spend a little more attention growing branches rather than these 6 leafs.

the other 3 plants have branch development to the point that THEY are getting big fan leafs now but this plant's branches are no more than 1 1/2" long and toothpick in diameter.

I'm a little confused.


this is what I asked and paid for (Hemp Depot):

all FEM beans
-DNA
Lemon OG Kush
LA Woman
-Barney's
Cronic Thunder
Sweet Tooth
-Dinafem
White Siberian




this is what I got:







did they substitute the 12 (Regular) Malawi Gold** for the other stuff or ??

this is my 1st time making a withdraw from a bank so if anyone has some experience with them, I'm all ears.



**Malawi Gold
Indoor / outdoor
Internationally acclaimed as one of the most potent, feel good psychoactive, pure African sativa there is and for a number of years been Amsterdam's number 1.
Genetics: 100% Malawi Gold
Variety type: Sativa
Yield: 650-750g/m2
Height: 2 m plus
Grow difficulty: easy
Ascetics: Heavy buds, Xmas tree multi branched.
Indoor flowering 10 to 12 weeks



oh perfect, a 2 m plus sativa...

I'm @ the thought of pure Sativa

-but-

I'm @ the thought of a 2m + plant

my thoughts too

and confirmed from H-D

""Oddly enough, we can mail out the packages the same day and one will
get there and a week for the next to show up. Random at best for
both our post offices.
Peace, """

sort of thought they would keep it to one package for stealth but whatever.


already thinking about the next grow.

I could crack one FEM seed... veg her happily all by herself; plenty of air flow and light.
then take a clone, possibly a top and/or the 4 bottom branches, right before or soon after I put her in flower
that way I could veg the clone while the original flowers.

as long as one clone survives, I'll have a perpetual harvest without keeping a mother.
(not suggested to clone more than 3 generations if I recall reading something like that correctly)

am I missing something basic or does that sound like a sound plan of action given my space and these FEM seeds

sure could use some of that uplifting, supportive advice/comments...


4.5 hours into their 6 hours of "night"
6 days after being cut

"The Runt" is close right




I assume I re-invented the bubble cloner?


water level is about 3/8" above bottom of RW cube
same black tray as before (heat pad below @ 74-79F)
only now NO humidity dome and aerated water.
the air-stones are hidden behind the white tray so NO SPLASH!
1 gal distilled + 20 ml of my veg-mix +2 drops rapid root 5.5ph

If you're leaving them in standing water, even with a bubbler, take them out.

They need oxygen.

done and done!


should I give them a "dip in the pool" each night or wait till RW is getting dry/light?

I assume it will take >24 (48) hours to dry the RW

there are no roots outside the RW

Rockwool retains water well. When ones wet, pick it up and note the weight. When it starts to dry out just give it a bit of water. They'll perk right up.

thank you MUCH Cubby!

I NEED these to get healthy so I can sex them...

I'm running out of space FAST!





most of these branches are still flexible enough to tie/bend down but I need the space to do that

I cant imagine that seed's going to survive like that very long (?)

maybe the Fates have given me a wink wink, nudge nudge as to what I'm supposed to try first
