 What was your training method to achieve your canopy?

 Let it grow. I did nothing to it. I did not top one plant or tie anything. The plants fill in any space were there is  light. Since I built the floor to fit the light footprint the canopy makes itself. I dont top because I dont like unbalanced plants. Topped plants make more buds, but they can only make as much as the food in the soil provides energy for x your light source. So it may appear that you get more with topping but thats not always true, most times its more illusory than anything. Since I didnt top and I have limited space the colas that pack on directly under the light get really big. Thats what I need them to do is stack right where they are instead of branching out everywhere and making smaller bud spots that make more work and give relatively the same yield. 

 

One thing I did do is remove the underbush. Some call it lolipoping I dont care for that term for some reason.. lol, my canopy is flat any thing small and spindly is removed. I dont need to have small loose nuggets stealing energy from my tops. This is my I like 1k watt lights for light penetration into your canopy..Ill show you iin a second what I mean...

I also mulched w perlite about 3" deep.

 

When trimming up branches always remember to sterilze your cutting tools between plants. i use a jar of 99% iso alc to clean my pruning shears or scissors. Always cut the branch back to the base of the main stem where it can heal properly. Nubs of plant material are vectors for mold and infection.

You want fast growing healthy plants? Start with a healthy LARGE clone. Here is a clone @ 14 days that was left over. All the other cuts were in pots @ 7 days, this one was still hanging around...

No they are not.

 

In the begining of the thread I talked about how I built the floor to fit the light footprint. I was going to use pallets but decided against it becuase of cleanliness issues.
