Out of curiosity, what size fabric pots are those?
Im sorry. I dont know. I learned a valuable lesson when buying these. I was gonna grow in 3 gallon. I ordered them from the 1st cheap seller on Amazon and noticed when they arrived that they didn't look like the could hold 3 gallons. And sure enough. I did the volume equation and it was barely 2.5 gallons. So I made a point to only buy from sellers who guarantee the volume. I do know that much. Wait, I can look them up too. Its been a while but ill try. Stay tuned. PS they drain very well. Almost too well if you water too fast they drain on the sides.

And are you lollipopping your autos? If so, how far into your grows are you waiting to clean them up? Thanks!
The gorilla glue plants were just tied down. And defoiliation. The pheno has such wild wispy limbs its hard to see the training methods used. But I tied them down and as the top got longer I would bend it following the edge of the container and keep tying it down until I ran out of room. Then let it go vertical. I topped the other 2 plants and found it was a lot easier working with them. Tying plants down requires a lot more time because the plant is growing so fast, you are constantly having to move your tie down points because the top will go vertical so quickly

What do you mean by trimming exactly? I defoiliate because I have to. If you are new, I highly suggest removing only the really big fan leaves and leaves that are shading out flowering areas. I also cut my nitrogen way way down on week 4. This keeps or helps prevent wild leaf growth and the plant can use that energy for flowering

I topped two of my plants this grow and tied down the 2 branches and yes I did lollipop all 4 plants. Right before flowering starts is when I make my move. Its here where you have to make a judgment call. Ask yourself self how good are your lights and how much penetration are you getting. Decide where that cut off is and start removing any leaves and tiny growth tips from the cut off line all the way down to the soil. Do a little step back and see if that area is still shaded. If not you're in the sweet spot. If its still being shaded move up a little more until nothing green is shaded out. It requires a lot of time to almost daily remove new bud sites and leaves that will be shaded and worthless, but the rewards are great

I agree that if you water too fast with the fabric pots it will run out of the sides and i found i was watering more often

Funny you said that. I was in a rush this morning and watered my plants fast. The sides looked like a shower head almost lol. Im still feeding the gorilla glue plants and not giving any fertilizer to the other. It's so close to being ready, that I'm only giving it lots of sugars and golden tree. Sugars are from humbolts secret called sweet sticky. Its a must have in my tool box. You can really tell a difference in the flavors when you add a sugar type product to your mix.

I haven't wanted to defoliate everything at one time. I have lollipopped them and everyday I take a few leaves off.

I think im going to have over a pound of cured bud. I haven't weighed everything. These gorilla glue plants buds are taking forever to dry. But all plants are curing minus the 2 gg plants
