Oh ya! I usually start them ~mid may then they stall out and finish ~the end of August....sad little things. Here's a couple of the better one's from last year......
So after picking the brains of locals, it was suggested to try to have them finishing around Summer Solstice (~June 20th) so they spend their vegging and stretch time under "ideal" conditions then bulk and finish up outside. So I am going to start the 1st round on 4/20, harden them off to outside starting the 3rd week of May so they "should" be done the beginning of July....the 2nd and 3rd round will be 2 wks apart after that. At the end of the season I can then evaluate what time frame performed the best.
It doesn't stop all stretch though does make the plant focus on widening instead of elongating so the buds are more round instead of pointy.....some strains are just prone to foxtailing. This is more intended to reel in the whispy, fluffy Sativa types though I suppose it would stop foxtailing out of the top with the growth tip removed
Yup! I just routinely do it as most of what I grow are Sativa/Sativa dominants....I like the rounder buds siting in my jars with a bit more density of ~10-15% which is really negligible when your getting 4-5oz plants without the method anyway
I destroyed them when Bodhi asked us to not continue with the DBHP and was kind enough to give the green light to distribute what we already had packaged up
