  1. Just wanted to say Thank You for providing this information. As a new grower I have found it very valuable. I’ve found that the most popular books about growing mmj are 10 yrs old. They gave me good basics but were not useful in answering specific questions. This site fills in the gaps in a succinct way.

    • glad it helps you. its hard to always provide content for you guys as this is a free project i do. trying to pay the bills requires me to work a 9-5. only $ this site makes is on the ads that are on it from other sites. very small amount $ but every little bit helps. we will try to continue to provide you info as long as possible.

  2. I did trim a few plants at the bottom and those are producing huge colas at the top and larger buds below them. I knew with ten GDP flowering and only spaced 12″ apart I needed some air down there. The biggest colas are at least nine inches or more and down to over six inches. I do have photos but do not know if there is a way to send them to you. thanks for all you are doing. Joe

    • every strain is different in how it should be grown or trimmed. u should know your strain for this reason. i have some i do not trim, and some i trim the heck out of. all depends on how that strain should be grown
