Groovy is right. These 4 (hopefully) girls have me feeling good about my first harvest. I do have some fem og kush and some member strains coming up behind them but these 4 are the most mature. Thanks for the kind words everybody. Since this is bagseed I guess that means I'll be able to name whatever these 4 produce, mother nature willing.

Technically the story goes the seeds where from a cancer patient that passed away. Allegedly they are Acopolco gold and something else. I have no way to verify that and the source is shaky. So I'm calling them bag seed.

Thank you for the advice. I did absolutely plant these not only to soon, but to shallow as well. I could of and probably should of let it go in the jiffy alone much longer. Here's the larger of the 4. Just approaching the 30 day mark I think.
You did fine. I have been growing weed 50 years with a few breaks in between & gardens since I could walk with mom. I have never buried a cannabis plant past its soil level nor had to. I planted a weed seed along a river once under birches. I went back in fall it was 9 feet high & top cola was biggest I ever grew. In my opinion for what it is worth burying a stem on a young plant is inviting damping off. I ask are we smarter than God or creation or whatsoever we want to call him or her or it? Nature isn't broken is it? Or do we have to fix nature somehow? Well it is broken. We broke it trying to fix it. A good & honest way to grow in a pot is add some good seed starter in the middle of finish pot then place seed 3mm deep in said & keep it moist until it sheds it's helmut. If soil is good it rarely need amendments either just water & good light.

Think so? Was definitely going to repot very soon but a little unsure about taking shears to them. I've watched videos on lollipopping and such but still apprehensive.

Just a pinch of the top leaves will do. I just use my thumb nail or some tweezers. This redirects the growth hormones to the lower nodes, causing them to become colas or tops. She will thus grow as a bush, with several heads, instead of a Christmas tree with only a single cola.

Won't harm her in the least I assure you.

OK I will look up a couple videos again before I take that step. On an interesting side note, I have a smaller one not pictured that is naturally growing with what looks like 2 maybe even 3! tops naturally.
Is this something I'll need to do more than once?
You and every other member here has been very helpful in my quest to soak up as much info as possible.

I know what you mean about being apprehensive. I never did it before and almost died when I did what you see on the first pic. In the second pic you can see what was the top of the plant. I ranted and raved for a few minutes and told myself how stupid I was and then went inside to calm down. When I went back out 2 hours later I saw pic 3. They were trying to grow upward so I just left them alone. Noe see pic 4 there are 2 shoots growing from the main stem there are 2 more starting from the joint above the bend and 2 more growing from the apex where I had topped it 3 days earlier. Be brave go for it!

I don't think the time of day makes any difference.

Yea, I've been watching @Alphatoy and would like to continue to see your results. Would you remind us where you got these again please? I may order some and give them a try. I love to train and play with the structure of my plants. BTW, a tip for those that didn't already know, I've found that training after a good watering has been done makes the limbs much more pliable and less likely to break. If the plant is thirsty when training the branches are a lot more likely to snap off or get excessive damage. Another lesson learned the hard way for me even though it seems like common sense now. Breaking a limb beyond recovery that had the potential to become a beautiful flower is very disheartening but turning one cola into multiple is delightful.
