    makes em real bushy if done rite.then tieing em down will bring bigger and better buds,bending for me lets the plant know it is about to be worked with and it opens up more grow shoots and by time goods arrive to bud it has to work real hard to get there so it be real strong by time of roller coaster ride of bends and turns

    And toping will give you more branches to grow more buds. This plant was 3.5 pounds of buds

    I am thinking I will tie the lower branches down to allow more branche to form. what type of string materials can I use regular string?yarn?I was thinking tie the stirng to a paper clip and wrap the clip around the branch to cause less stress. also can topping turn the plant into a male?

    Hello turborunner03t

    Topping, well I call it pinching . Yes it does work and it does increase the size of the yeild. I just pinch the once before inducing flowering which then gives my plants 2 main stems.
    I just simply pinch off the new growth at the top of the plants between my finger nails being carefull not to take off any of the area where the new stems are going to grow from.
    It really is very simple

    Affraid I'm not yet up to Zandors standards, don't think I'll ever quite manage that but I'm trying


    love mand xxx
