Day 40. Another mega prune. You can see in these photos that I trimmed back all the cola's that weren't as mature, and just really cleaned up the under- canopy. The only things left on the plant are the 16 colas that I've decided are at about the same height, and that i will grow to maturity. From here on out, there is no major pruning, just some "cleaning up" to do of any new baby colas that form or leaves that are growing under canopy. I also did a final training, and matched each remaining cola to it's own space in the trellis.
