But this is the internet, so transplanting stress is a myth. In the real world though, transplanting is for suckers.
I can't post the link due to TOU but if you Google "growing tropical sativas indoors" and add on UK then append with 420 (hoping that doesn't violate any rules) you'll find a stickied post that outlines the technique along with a few bits I forgot, such as topping once early on.
It's a cross post from the real seed company forums so the technique has been tried out by serious landrace growers and found to be successful.
But then again, more than one way to skin a cat eh? I don't doubt you can do it differently by heavy scrogging, insane amounts of light etc. I've also tried shit like 12/12 from seed then topping and revegging but that doesn't work as well.
I would cross post the thread myself but I'm on a phone and busy right now so if people can't find it I'll get on a laptop later and try to copy it all over.
