    I though of sharing this little photo series of how I perform a techique called mainlining for photoperiods. You shouldn't do this for plants that are in any way under stress or harmed. Only perfectly healthy plants with vitality would do. Aim of the technique is to create equal division of power delivered for each main branch so that the colas would stay nice and tidy and grow equal to each other.

    Dutch Passion's Compassion in DWC - week2 with 5 nodes total.

    Made a cut to the main stem from the 3rd node. Also cut the two nodes below the 3rd one. I also left the fan leaves temporarily to provide better photosynthesis for now.
    3. 0 (original).JPG

    After 2 days of recovery there is new activity of the new mains that I keep on bending sideways keeping them down.

    3rd day
    5. 3d (original).JPG

    4th day. I see enough development its time to make another cut to divide 2 new mains to 4 new mains. This one is before the cut:
    6. 4d (original).JPG


    And cut! Make sure to cut them from equal divisions from each side for equal power transmission.
    7. 4d cut (original).JPG

    Topview after the cut:
    8. 4d cut topview (original).JPG


    6th day. We already observe growing of the new 4 mains and it is time to tie them down in similar way.
    9. 6d (original).JPG


    9th day. After obseving the new 4 mains each starting to bend their heads up was a cue to make 3rd and final split to divide 4 mains to 8 new mains in same way.
    10. 9d (original).JPG

    15 days from the orginal cut of the main stem, this is how she looks now. Now just let her do her thing. Give a little bit of vegatiation still and switch to flowing and the plant should do the rest of the work without needing control.

    I hope you found this helpful / interesting / educational. :toke:

    Oh you do? Do have any tips on what to take account when doing this for autos? Because I am seriously thinking of doing it to my current grow.. I was thinking should I go for just 2 cuts or push it to 3rd one like here for 8 mains?

    Ok , I wouldn't wait till 5 nodes I cut just above the 3 when she has 4 and take first two away same as, and if to go for 8 depends on strain , so for example an xxl I would try for 8 in general if I do it I go just 4 with normal finishers , but the main reason I do it us to contain size I pack them in tent is less hassle than lst at times , you allready know your on that race against time with an auto , so it can be just that judgement call. Everything else like health etc that you've described is same , I give foilar feeds every cut as well, what strain you growing again ?
