The plant shows a very healthy and explosive growing. The roots develop and expand correctly. In a short time frame it will be placed in the AutoPot so that it starts to absorb water and nutrients.

Week 3 – Growing

As the roots are already developed enough to be able to use the nutrients present in the AutoPot, it was watered with 10 litres of water with the nutrients mixed in it.

I performed a FIM pruning (high stress technique in which the harvest is increased, increasing the number of main colas in a cannabis plant, which instead of doubling the main cola, FIM pruning can result in more than 4 new colas). On day 24, the plant had grown fast and at full capacity. The daily water intake was approximately 1 to 2 liters.

It is visible at the naked eye how the plant goes from pre-flowering to producing flowers in abundance, with a good stretch and flowering production. La plant has been defoliated, which means that the leaves are eliminated in different stages of the growing stage with the main goal of obtaining higher quality and quantity in the final harvest.
