Exciting reveal today...
First, here are two pictures from last Friday (Day 40) and she has already bounced back stronger than before.
Today (Day 44) she was ready for another pruning - only 11 days since the last trim - incredible!! My advice to other cannabis growers is you pretty much can't over prune a strong healthy plant in the veg and early flower stages in a BLOOM. The growing conditions are so optimal they grow back stronger and thicker after a good haircut, so get in there with your shears or scissors!
Today's haircut took off all the lower undergrowth that was shaded, both fan leaves and bud sites, they won't get enough light and won't develop into strong buds. I also got aggressive and took off a lot of the biggest upper fan leaves that created shade on other parts of the plant. This will let in more light and air circulation. Lastly, I pulled the outside stems further out on the trellis to give every stem plenty of breathing room and space to get big.
This will likely be the last major prune for Betty as she heads later into the flowering cycle. I'll still be removing crowded fan leaves here and there, but now with 8 strong large stalks from pruning and training, she is ready to grow up and put her energy into growing large dense buds and colas!
Gender reveal time...she's definitely a girl!! :tada:
