I was pretty diligent about keeping the canopy as even as I could and within a few inches from the CFL bulbs.

After the uproot, I let her hang upside down for a week to dry out nice and slow. There was a total of 38 branches so I just clipped them all off, piled them up and got down and dirty with the trim job that took about an hour.

The nugs varied in size between 1.5-2.5 grams each. Along with a bunch of popcorn buds, the total weight came to 76.4 grams. I expect to still lose a little more moisture weight but not much. I definitely made it my 2 oz goal this time.

Each of my grows have shown significant improvement. Take a look:

Look upwards through the cannabis canopyHere's a link to my dresser grow box that was pretty inexpensive to make, and perfect for growing with CFLs.

I started with a 1/2 gallon sized pot, then transplanted to 2.5 and ended up in big 5 gallon pot. Using the old faithful Fox Farms Ocean Forest  soil mixed with some extra perlite.

Earth Juice: Verde Fire powder nutrients for grow and bloom added every other watering.

For training, I topped the clone after a couple days and leaned her to the side.

I topped all of those side shoots that came up, and then each of those new shoots again after a couple nodes.

Low stressed trained (LST'ed) the hell out of them, without supercropping, to grow out first and then upward.

Here's a nice shot of her legs.

Thanks GrowWeedEasy!



Verde Fire Grow powder nutrients for marijuana

Now It's Your Turn!

Make your own dresser microgrow setup just like Mind_if_I_do_a_J and start growing marijuana with CFLs today! 

Soil: Fox Farms Ocean Forest mixed with perlite

Nutrients: Verde Fire powder Grow and Bloom (used every other watering)

Note about nutrients: Mind_If_I_Do_A_J started using Verde Fire Grow at Week 3, since Fox Farms Ocean Forest soil already has been enriched with some nutrients.

How He Did It...

 "I know your site well, as a matter of fact,: I used advice and technique from Keef Treez to experiment with some defoliation myself. Here is a link that shows more training and lollipopping. And here, I just really like this shot. Check out these close up shots.

We're so glad to hear our website helped you grow such an awesome plant! Congrats!
