I been doing this for years. I always did hate to lose those tops. I bend over the top 5-6 inches of the plant and I squeeze the stem flat as I do so they don't tend to snap because of the outer fibers on the bend break.

I start this technique as soon as there is a couple of nodes and a stem between them to bend sometimes. You never seen seedlings like you can create using this method!

I use all sorts of plant bondage techniques lol, but I use bending to keep those tops that are in the sweet spot from getting crisped by the light. I run two 400's also, a hps and a halide about 18 inches apart and in a 4x5 space.

This is how I get the bigass branching I get on my plants. Next time I take pics I will show the Butterscotch hawaiian g13hp that you can see in the pre88 g13hp seed run thread I started recently. It is the big one in the front rubbermaid in the center that is almost up to the lights. Check out the stems on that stuff now :) Those fatter stems grow fatter buds too I have noticed. The branches that get the tops bent always produce extra stout stuff.

Peace...

Prism, are you using any additives at this point of flowering? Your babies are looking great and are filling out big time.

I hit them with a dose of AN Organic Bloom and Calmag every couple weeks. Other than that its just Dehumidifier water and FFOF soil only
...

I love organic growing!!:loveeyes:

If the stem snaps you can use some twist tye and splint the break


Don't forget the duct tape! A great stem fixer in a hurry.

Great thread Prism, I'm a huge fan of bending the ladies over!
