The following pics are a clone and the flowered mother of the clone. The mother was NOT fimmed and the clone was.

The plant in the foreground was fimmed three times and has 12 separate budsites.



This is the mum. It was grown as a single cola plant.



I guess it comes down to what you are looking for, but for number of budsites and consistant quality of buds my money is on fimming. Choose for yourself.

cheers,

What does pinching have to do with fimming? "Pinching" is physically squeezing stems and branches during vegging.

Absolutely nothing HHG.

I brought up FIM because in the original post he said he wanted "bushy buggers", and this is how I get my plants bushy. Of course old arguments surface as soon as different training techniques are discussed.

Sorry if I jacked the thread.

cheers,

cheers,
RES, you heard me right--and Id like to hear more of your method!

what I meant by "pinching" is literally pinching OFF the growing tip of a plant, be it MJ or any other plant. The terms, "topping", LST and fimming are new to me and Im off to look them up right now.

It's becoming more and more clear that what holds true for yer petunias or tomatoes aint necessarily true fer yer MJ. If I hadnt had you guys to ask, my inclination would be to pinch a young plant (remove growing tip) a lot when they're young, like I would a Coleus, for instance. Like MJ, the Coleus tends to have but one main stalk, but if you pinch it you can get a mature Coleus a foot wide. I mean, this is such a common practice for flower cultivation it's like second natue to want to PINCH. So, again, Im glad I asked and grateful for your help.

Since some said yes and some said no, LOL, I expect I will do a little Science in the Home experimentation on my strain (White Widow).

Well, off to learn topping, LST and fimming.... Learning all the time. oh, by the way, Im not a "he". It looks like the najority of growers here are men. Why is that, I wonder?

Sorry about the latent sexism Dixie. You're right lots of growers on the boards are guys. I dunno why that is. Girls like flower gardens and guys like to get stoned maybe? (yes, yes...more sexism).

I kind of got the idea you were talking about "pinching" the growth tip off because of your flower gardening background.

That is exactly what FIMMing is except in FIM you don't nip the entire tip, just a portion of it. The remaining partial tip then has a higher likelyhood of producing multiple new growth tips rather than just two. Which would be the case if the entire growth tip were removed.

Have fun and enjoy the garden,

Pinching works. I've not had a plant split from pinching it, it just broke down the inner parts of the stalk, and when it rebuilt, it rebuilt better. I get fat knots where I pinch. It is working out wonderfully for me this time around, I started pinching a few days before I started flowering until 2 weeks into flowering. I only pinched the main stalk, it slowed it's growth down and let the others catch up, now I have somewhat of a flat canopy of buds instead of some really low, and some really high.

For clarity. Dix is referring to Topping when he says Pinching.


Pinching is something totally separate.




Me i find topping at the 2 node then lsting the resulting two tops equals 6 or more main colas
