Hawaiian Snow & Topping

10 posts in this topic

Hi guys,

 

please let me know your taughts for topping Hawaiian Snow?

I'll be growing in soil, outdoors (on balcony) and I wanted to follow 4-Way LST (http://www.growweedeasy.com/scrog-tutorial#4-way-lst), but I've read ... quote: Hawaiian Snow grows in a pine-tree profile, with wide distances between internodes. Topping her elongated branches is counterproductive while bending achieves amazing results.

 

Is this true? ... should I only be bending main stem, or follow another training for better yields?

 

Thanks and enjoy :pleasantry:

Hi Bozick,

 

 

You can do whatever technique you want, you will surely get good results because it is a productive plant. 

On a personal level, I prefer cropping: 

Cheers

Thanks for the answer Jose.gh.

 

Super cropping looks quite advanced for my grow, but maybe I'll give 1 plant a go.

Could you let me know, what's the best time to super cropp for aprox. height of 1 m bush?

Do you top or fim before super cropp?

Hi again,

 

I've got 1 more question regarding the flowering of the Hawaiian Snow:

- outdoor finish is last week of October

- it flowers 11 weekds

- does that mean that is start to flower on on 2nd week of July?

 

Thanks!

Hi Bozick, 

 

I do not recommend pruning fim or similar, it is a plant that branches out but generates a very good central tail.

The height depends on you. Do you have a maximum height? What I would do is bend the branches above the desired height (crop). And that's it. 

If you don't have a height problem, it's best to let it grow free. Put some support, to prevent the plant from bending in flowering.

This genetics is ready at the end of October in the northern hemisphere, some phenotypes may be delayed a little longer. so we should always look at the trichomes:) They will tell us when the plant is ready to be harvested.

 

 

Cheers

Thanks once again Jose.gh!

 

I have magnifier and I know when to harvest ... the question was, when does this flower start to bloom (outdoors).

In the video they mention that flowering time is 11 weeks.

 

I need to schedule the nutes, and I would like to know all the cycles of the plant.

Hi again,

 

I decided to bend the main stem (in week 7 - light blue markup) ... please see the pictures attached and advise, if I should also bend the end/highest point of the stem again (red circrle) - to narrow it with other shoots going upwards?

 

Thank you!

If the stem is bent, the tip will try to regain its height. If you want to keep plants short, you can cropping (it gives good results). Or simply moulding the branches :)

 

Cheers!

Few weeks till harvest, and the right flower (1 of 3 in the pot) is not healthy: the leaves are narrower, burnt, looks week, the top is bending ...

Please advise, what could be the problemc and what should I do, to help her regain the energy/life? Thanks!!

About us

Strain Hunters is a series of documentaries aimed at informing the general public about the quest for the preservation of the cannabis plant in the form of particularly vulnerable landraces originating in the poorest areas of the planet.

Cannabis, one of the most ancient plants known to man, used in every civilisation all over the world for medicinal and recreational purposes, is facing a very real threat of extinction. One day these plants could be helpful in developing better medications for the sick and the suffering. We feel it is our duty to preserve as many cannabis landraces in our genetic database, and by breeding them into other well-studied medicinal strains for the sole purpose of scientific research.
