    Update as of July 9th 2018:

    Got all my cages built and installed now. The girls are doing quite nicely but I'm really torn on whether or not to top them. For now I'm going to let them continue untouched and see what comes of it. If they start to get too tall I can always extend the cages upwards.

    Update July 16th:

    The girls are doing well and getting big. I've begun to train lateral branches through the cages. Also have a couple of small, blue predators in the grow keeping nasty, bad, unwanted critters at bay.

    Update July 23:

    Doing some crazy training. Just finding a hole and putting branches through. Some of the thicker branches and the main stem got the 'super-crop' treatment in order to bend the branches where I needed them to be without causing too much stress on the opposite side of the plant. These things are gonna be bushy....soon.

    Update July 31:

    Looks like they are starting to flower now. The Chocolate Creams (tallest....front-left) are the first of course and have finished the stretch....at least it looks that way. What growth in one week's time!

    I still have not fed these girls. Still working on that composted soil and doing well. I did leave enough room at the top of the soil for a top dressing if they need it.

    This should be a good grow.

    If you look closely you can make out the ash on the leaves from the HUGE fire we have going near here. I'm well over 25 miles away and still getting ash fall.

    I thought I heard this once...Is ash mixed in with soil a good thing?

    Update August 5:

    Looks like everyone is going into flower now. The Chocolate Cream has the jump on the others since she has a 50 day maturation.

    Update Aug 13:

    Damn these plants can grow! The Chocolate Creams are just 6" from reaching the shade cloth that covers my grow space. I do hope they are done stretching. Leggy bee-atches! :shocked: (First pic...two tallest tops)

    Super crop the tops to slow vertical growth.

    The one Chocolate Cream has JUST hit the screen. The rest are fine. I have these girls trained every which way to the point of being rather doministic and those girls STILL got leggy on me. They said that strain had 'profuse' lateral branching....they did not lie! If it gets bad I'll just hang a weight on the mainstem and let it hang low.
