how to grow big colas

i realise now that i made the title seem like i was going 2 be telling u somnthing rather then asking but my bad.. anyway

i dont want 2 do a scrog method or anyhing like that seeing as i only got 5 plants but how do u make it so u only grow nice big sexy half oz colas...

i know their is a link on this site somewhere 2 tell me probely if anyone can link ill be glad 2 read up on it myself...

i was thinking u just tie the tops down so the plant is bent over and then the side brances will grow like the main cola... but is their any other ways and is this even right?

i would let your plants grow into single colas and trim all lower stems,leaves letting all the growth and power etc go towards the main colas..lst and training will give you tons of little nugs being this will bush the plant out..go sigle cola

Place your bulb (1000 HPS) hoodless hanging in the center of the 5 plants and don't rotate. Trim a fourth of the plant from the bottom when you are ready to trigger, and trigger at around 1.5 to 2 feet tall. No clipping. This is a vertical grow and is best used with a half sativa half indica strain so you get that needed stretch. To cool the bulb get one of those cheap fans that can rotate 90 degree's and point it straight up at the bulb. Air cool if needed.

This is the best way to get large, long cola's and efficient yield. Good luck!

that's how to train them while they grow, not after vegging for mo's on end by the way. they dont just...do that; as it's called training for a reason.

a nice veg time...taking care of the roots...keep your pH in the recommended range...

maintaining healthy plants will give you nice colas...

greenblaze,here is a tip
use small containers and gro indicas and you will get some phat colas, nothing YOU can do to the plant so makes a phat bud,is all naturally made.just give the plant some confort.

keep it green bro.

greenblaze, it is much more rewarding to grow your own than it ever will be to have the best of the rest, namely, because its free, and it is reaping what you sow, best feeling ever
