These little ladies are three weeks old and are doing great. They are nice and bushy and some of them have some branches that are long enough to do some low stress training with some supercroppers from the team over at @bifbeans.

These supercroppers make training super easy. One of the reasons to do low stress training is to train the branches to grow in a direction you want them. Low stress training also stresses the plant and forces it to send nutrients to that area, increasing yields and making an overall healthier plant.

The first two pictures are of my purple lemonades. The third photo is my bubblegum and it is the shortest of the bunch. It is a heavy indica, so a short bushy profile is normal. The fourth photo is the purple punch and it is the tallest of them all, but not by much.

The fifth image is pretty cool because the stalk of the purple lemonade still has the shell from the seed on it. It is a pretty cool way to show how the seed has gone from something so tiny to what it is now. Hopefully the seed shell stays on the plant through its whole life cycle. It will be cool to see how thick the stem on the plant gets by the time it is ready for harvest.

I am really excited for this grow. There should be some pretty cool colors in the tent in the next month. This next week, the plants should begin to show early signs of flower and then start to stretch and really get some height to them. I am going to be topping them sometime in the next few days to prevent them from getting too tall and to make them grow more sideways instead of upwards. Should be a pretty cool week. Thanks for stopping by and checking out the progress of this grow.

They look like mini palm trees from above. Arguably good looking plants in their own right. I didn't know about the stress training but it goes to show that if you know what you're doing it makes a huge difference.

They really are some cool looking plants. This stage is really cool to see because they change so much each week and there are new branches sprouting out each day. I eventually want to get a timelapse camera set up in the tent and show how the plants grow over their life.

Man what round of grow is this now? 6th? I know I say this a lot, but to see you begin growoing, and now your just as good as any of us here is just so cool! If I am old, and not using social media anymore,this will be something I look back on and remember.

I don't even know what grow this is, lol. All I know is that I try and use what I have learned from each grow to make the next ones even better. We have some awesome growers here on Hive and it is cool to see what is working for them and to try and incorporate it into what I am doing. Plus, I watch a lot of YouTube videos about growing. I just hate buying weed and love growing my own.

Yeah man buying weed sucks, especially at the club. I always fell so guilty when i do. Even back in the day when i never grew.

Prices here are crazy. I was paying $65-$75 for 3.5 grams from the dispensary. It started to add up fast, so growing my own was the best option. Plus the quality is way better.

the prices here are about the same. Its so stupid. Never in my life would I think I would see an 1/8th over 60$. The taxes here are killing the leagal market.

Interesting gadgets, I was using a rope and nails. So it was a bit more bondage I guess :)

They work pretty good and they break off on their own when the branches get bigger. I have used twist ties in the past to tie down the branches as well, but never used nails for any of it.

Ouu nails were for keeping the rope to the ground :)
