Help plz plants not under control

Hy guys

I'm a newbie and are growing some "Banana Krumble" and as you can see my plants are growing too much and I have to cut a lot because otherwise they will be visibile from the street...

How would you folks cut them in order to avoid loosing too much harvest?

Thanks and greetings from Italy ?

If you still in veg. you can top them. Probably cut them down to as few as three or four nodes or train them to grow lower by tying the branches down to their pots. It's hard to really screw them up. They are very forgiving plants.

I used string and tied down the tops, instead of cutting the tops. Everytime you top a plant you delay the flowering a couple of weeks. For fast flowering tops, just train them by pulling the tops way down and tie them to the base of the plant. Go slow at first, to allow the plants to adjust to the bend. Bend the first day then a little each day until your plants are low. Hey your plants look really good you are doing a very nice job.

LST low stress training. That is the route I would go, not a fan of excessive cutting myself, although that will also work. You still have plenty time to come up with a plan

You can barely see them how you planted them. I doubt anybody could spot them.
The street is behind them, correct? Behind the hedge/bush plants?

But if you are concerned then keep them just low as posted above by others.

It's hard to see but I bent all of the uppermost branches about 180 degrees to keep them away from the lights. I've also looked at something called the Tip Pot https://tip-pot.com/ which might help in your case.


BTW you should be as concerned about odor as being able to see the plants.

Hy guys thanks for your kind advices, I'll bend them down.

I know the plants don't seem likely to be spotted (and there is the garden between the hedge and the Street) but in 2003 I got busted with 2 huge "White Rose" which grew in the same location (the hedge was 4m high at the time), it's a very small town and People talk a lot, and remember.

At the time I was finally acquitted in the second instance and it was recreational use, now I have an illness (MS) which justifies weed use, but in case the Police makes a visit I will loose the crop in any case even though criminal charges would be pretty unlikely. Italian justice is very unpredictable, which, several years ago helped tremendously??

Cut those tops down a couple of nodes, maybe 3, 4. You’ll get bushes this way, lower branches will catch up in size before your “old” tops start growing normal again. Keep in mind you still have a month of veg and 2 weeks of stretch ahead of you. Dont be afraid to take a lot.

Make bushes, cut off those tops, bend branches closer to the ground to make them wider and free up the middle space of the plants for more tops. They will double or triple in size before they really start budding. Dont be afraid to cut it heavily. They take it well outdoors.

Give them some kelp, aloe, yucca, aminoacids or similar right after to keep them stress free. Foliar works well.
