Would love to hear from those who have tried both and pros and cons from your perspective. My cons were mainly veg time seemed to be slightly longer which wasn't that big a deal and pros were other than the colas other popcorn buds were easy to decide to remove early from other branching.
People prune plants all the time its super popular. I prune my plants into multi topped plants. No one calls it "mainlining" for many reasons. 1) its not a realy term. It was made up by a braindead donkey 2) only hardcore fans of said braindead donkey use that term. 3) that term is a term used by people who shoot up drugs, its ehat they call the act of shooting up. Most growers dont shoot up or associate growing with shooting up. Why subcool does? Thats obvious take a look at the guy how he talks and looks... mo surprise he thinks about shooting up in relation to growing... sub is a tard though all he did is mimic how they grow outside by snipping off tops, he didnt make any amazing discovery, thats how i grew my plants on my very first grow jist by observation, that was before i had so much info.

I always thought mainlining was pruning/training the plant in such a way so all the bud sites are basically being serviced thru and by one node.

I would think a more accurate description is that its a plant that is maintained by opposite nodes..... and the 2 halfs are there after maintained for symmetry.... and preventing apical dominance......

Yeah, I may be thinking of something a little different, a manifold (?)

ONe of the commandments of this style grow is you cant use clones....

because clones dont have opposing nodes..... they are alternating.....

How fussy can you get????

I grow outdoors so I don’t use these teks, no need. I’ll top every once in a while and do some bending to break profiles but because of the light from the sun and its travels this kind of manipulating isn’t necessary. I do maintain cuts indoors, in veg, but that’s just to preserve genetics.

Budley, nothing clear about it! Show us something on this site that shows the practice clearly so I can learn what this smackhead term actually means.
