Need info on Veg growth times.

Recommended Posts

I'm wanting to start my super mutant mass and purple gorilla both FEM but how long with a main-line/manifold technique should I keep them in Veg growth for? Also I have Critical Kush and Gelat O.G kush in the Veg tent. Same idea is to main-line/manifold grown in a 5x5,630W CMH SE grow light. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

This is somewhat strain-dependent.  I am unfamiliar with your strains.  

Growing in soil is slower than growing in coco coir with hydroponics nutrients.  I use coco & hydro-.

There are also two ways of doing a manifold.  The guy who originally described the technique (Nugbuckets?) cut the manifold back to the first node, grew out two branches from that point.  Then, a couple weeks later, he cut back those branches.  A simplified method is to grow out the manifolds to two or three nodes rather than trying to grow a scaffold node by node.  The simplified method is faster by a couple of weeks or so.

I don't think it is a good idea to top the plant until it is at least three weeks old.  Grow out to 5 or so nodes and then cut back to 3.  If you do it any earlier, you may be stunting the plant.

Then, say you want a manifold with three nodes per branch.  Then you need to grow the manifold out to at least four nodes before cutting it back.  After that, it is a matter of how big you want the plant to be before flowering.  But after you cut the branches back, you might want to give the new growth buds at least a week, and maybe two, to get to the size you want.

By this point, you are looking at 7 or 8 weeks.  Longer if you grow the scaffold out and cut it back, node by node.

Good luck, @Rickybkushand post some pictures.

HERE'S the whole thread ala Nebula Haze @Gardener referred too. i have thought about mainlining and manifols type growing and i have a few bookmarks saved. not sure when i will go there. baby steps.  https://www.growweedeasy.com/manifold

can't wait to see your porn if u do a thread on this grow @Rickybkush wish u the best. don't forget u can watch videos now of almost all the plant techniques and methods growers use.
