Today's day 55. Preflowers didn't show up until a few days ago. Next time I'll let the mains start growing upward a lot sooner. Live and learn.

I agree, personally I'll do light training on autos, a topping and spread them out is about it. not enough time to get real aggressive without damaging the yeild. Photos now... mainline and quad line away! The difference there is immense.

Fun to watch tho.:pop:

Just an update. Today's day 75 with another week or so to go. All colas are a little bigger than one of my fists and they're very dense. I learned my lesson on this first attempt and, as you can see in the 30 day old plant on the left, I've stopped removing new growth tips a lot sooner than I did on the first one. Either way, I'm very happy with the way it's all going.

Looks really cool and good fun too
Thanks! That's the fun that happens on the topside. You can't really tell from the other photos, but I've cut away the bottom milk crates and have created a little drying area. I've lined the inner walls of the main lower crate with some breathable black material from a Smart Pot. There are three 4" intakes directly in back of the primary crate so airflow shouldn't be an issue. It can hold ten perforated (and brown paper bag lined) cardboard boxes each with the dimensions of 9" x 5.5" x 2". In the event that I happen to need more drying room, I'll use the same sized boxes inserted into two Smart Pots and I'll tuck them under the secondary crate on the left.

In order to not keep making the same mistakes, I'm looking for some opinions here. This is day 37. Preflowers showed up a few days ago. I told myself a few days ago that I'm going to stop removing lower growth and let her focus energy on the main colas (I've since removed as little more) ..but I'm not exactly sure when to stop removing lower growth and when to just let the mains begin growing upwards. This is what I've got so far and I'm inclined to just let her be from here on. Any comments and/or suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!

Cut that little bit away. Are you going to let this one be 8 tops?

Thanks for the reply. Which 'little bit' are you referring to? I'm only going for four mains.
