    I love growing plants from seed and seeing what the Pheno naturally turns out like. I do have the advantage of unlimited space outside as my plants typically get 300- 350cm tall.
    Yes the first 10yrs I grew I hated to top a plant. And I'll let some strains like Grapology go natural, Moby Dick I'll let grow 8ft. But I've really had some crazy results fimming the tops instead of topping completely . But I also like to not altar the plants sometimes. I grew that Indigo Berry Kush from Sweet outdoors last year and didn't top or anything. It got pretty big outdoors. I think it was in 10-or 5gal bucket. But that's another good strain from Sweet. Beautiful pics man and great start. Have you grew the Cream Carmel yet?? This is my first go with her. Also doing the Skittles for the first time!!! Really excited about these 2. I had a great pheno of the San Fernando Lemon Kush I grew for probably 2yrs before I moved on from it. It's alot stronger than the other SLK I've ran. So there's some keepers Sweet strains will have

      Yeah I used to do my fair share of bending, fimming and pruning back in the days of having to disguise the plants from the air. But since it's been legal I enjoy growing the plant unmolested to it's full potential. If you think about it the Christmas tree shape evolved over time because it is the most efficient use of light over an area. As long as it is wide open and an unobstructed area. With my shorter grow season I also don't want to mess with the hormones so they finish as early as possible.
      I have never run any of the sweet seeds before. I have only been running commercial seeds the last 5yrs or so. For years I always used clones of the various BC outdoor strains. But as you get older your connections dry up, and I like the idea of growing different strains every year. Too many flavors out there to try to grow the same strain twice is my new motto.
      I tend to lean more to the sativa side with my grows and these, especially the Cream Caramel, lean a lot more indica, so we'll see how it goes.

ID:	17867330 First I clear the wood chips off the tops of the mounds. Plenty of soil life here.

              Then I dig a little hole with my hands , plant, and cover with a top dress of 3cm of compost. I then top dress that with a couple hand fulls of soy bean meal for a good nitrogen source where the mulch meets the soil. I use straw as a mulch on the top of the mound because it takes top dressings later in the season better. Easier for them to be watered into the soil. Click image for larger version

ID:	17867365 Then some large tomato cages and flat rocks laid out to keep the birds from digging. They love to dig at my mounds for all the critters given a chance. They are actually the worst pest I deal with.
                Plants are showing a little droop and not reaching for the sky from a bit of transplant shock. My grow bags had stayed moist at the bottom and roots were growing through, so they took a bit of damage.

                    They are growing 2-4cm a day now, but still not quite settled in to their new homes. Explosive growth will be coming soon.

                          Well they're starting to get settled in to their new homes. Growing 4-5cm a day now so starting to move along. You can still see though that the roots haven't really spread out yet a whole lot. The plants are still a little narrow and are just starting to go wider than their old rootball. Once they break that barrier they will really start to grow wide as well as tall.

                            The Cream Caramel gets that purple color on the top every night and then goes green again during the day. It's even been pretty warm, 30 in the day and just below 20 at night.

                              Well they're established and working with the soil now. Gave them a top dress of malted barley the other day and a shot of compost tea this morning. Weather hasn't been amazing but they don't seem to care.
                              Cream Caramel is the smallest at 58cm. You can see the purple tips this morning. They typically go green during the day and purple at night.
