    I am looking to start growing hemp when it becomes more deregulated. Right now, the licensing and testing regime one must go through is too onerous for my taste. I will retire from my "career" job in 13 years so by then it should have happened.

    Droopy leaves,omg I think i over watered them. so I changed out 8 cups of soil from each plant with fresh(carefully), and today the plants are right back up. I ended up topping them about a week ago and they were responding well. till this happen. Kinda thinking paint fumes from an spraycan got to them.but changing part of the soil did wonders. i guess i`ll let them veg for 4 more weeks.

    I was just looking at the pictures and thinking wow, they sure look healthy. Nice rich dark green color and strong stems with huge leaves considering the stem size. Good job.

    Me thinks you worry too much. :Whistle:

    Been messing with the tent, since i dont have a fan other than the 6in exhaust, i took the left over ducting and ran some through each 6 inch opening on the bottom thats on both sides of the tent and angled them on the inside to blow on my plants. in the process i made it to keep light out plus still have good airflow and the plants have a good breeze,and they sway around and the fan is only on setting 3 it goes to 8. I think that cold snap got the soil to cold. it went down to 59f, not forsure if that was ok or not? the clone is starting to do grow again. and the two from seed are getting bushy again. i waited and topped them at the 5th node, i have 8 branches coming up on each.i had in mind to clip the bottom set from each in hopes to make more clones. but their doing good as far as i know. the beginning of the 5th week of veg.This is all new to me, my mom seems a little interested in them and keeps telling me you should get her brother over here, he`s ol school, guess i might when they a little bigger.

    That's a good question.

    Topping is done during the vegetative stage to help redistribute growth hormones from the main stalk to side branches—by cutting off the main stalk, the plant will redirect its energies to side branches, forcing them to grow out, instead of up. Topping makes a weed plant bushier.
    For me its the strain i have. It gets up to 12 feet high, my grow tent is 6 1/2 foot high. My clone has 4 side branchs plus the top and are evened out finally. the ones i grew from seed i waited till the 5 set of triple leaves and than topped it. with them i have 8 branches coming up. the clone is at 14 inchs high and the other two i topped would`ve been bigger if i hadn`t but they are at 12 inchs high. during flowering it can double in size, so i`m lookin at switching to flower with them no taller than 18 inchs high, if they double , it will still give me room for proper light distance and intensity levels. the ones i topped broke soil on Jan 6, went to veg feb6( i think), now is like 6 week of of veg march 28 will be day 50 of veg and time to switch.
    i came across this last night

    You definitely sound like you know what you're doing. lol

    I have never grown my own plant before. I gave seeds to a friend that has a green thumb. She grew from one seed a plant about 4 feet wide and 10 feet tall in approximately 1 month in her green house. Within 6 weeks we had so much stuff growing and clones rooting that I finally said that's enough because it wasn't even legal yet. We split it. I got about 5.5 ounces. It took me 10 years to go through that. I bought a half ounce a year ago and still have over an eighth left. I smoke almost every day. Just a pinch in a pipe before bedtime. Sometimes I take a pinch full during the day if my pain level is particularly high.

    Personally I would never top the plants like you're doing...You will get better yields if you let them grow naturally like this one in the picture...I mean look at the splendid long top bud, that's the most potent bud of all of it and topping your plants you won't have that...
