    [00:33:16]   This is 7 days since we last came back and if you remember last week we did some pinching and some snapping. Now, we have used quite a bit of silicon and I can tell you now that silicon enhanced plants have become very resilient to snapping and as you can see they have recuperated. And typically when you snap a plant, it stays snapped. But, this one in the centre here; we snapped it at a right angle and the knuckle’s formed and yet it still wanted to grow back up again, so the only thing I can put it down to is the fact that we’ve used quite a bit of silicon in this system, really just to make the cell system’s double hard because I was worried about pests from next door coming in here, but the good news is, there is no sign of any pests and where we have snapped the plants,     they have regenerated and recuperated remarkably. In fact, too well which leaves us in the same dilemma that we were in last week. They are however slowing, there’s no two ways about it, they’re beginning to slow down, so what we’ve got to do today like we did last week is lower the canopy so we can get the lights back on top of the whole crop so it’s not just the tall plants that benefit from the light but all the plants will benefit. I mean some of the shorter plants that have more Indica in them, the bud formation is really tiering down, filling out, where the plants with Sativa or  

more Haze based are more stretched, as you can see the bud formations are a bit more sparse, however it’s still very early days and there’s a good chance that this whole thing’s going to fill up into one continuous and ginormous great big fruiting body.

    [00:35:09]   So we will today do some tying back and some snapping back and some more pinching because I want to get the canopy down to this type of level. So then I can get the lights back down on top of all of them. You can see, especially on the ones at the front where a knuckle’s formed from the actual snapping process and today really most of these tall plants, we’re going to look to snap down once again. I mean the snapping does slow down the fruiting process however I’ve got to get these lights closer to all of the plants. The thing is, these plants are so solid because of the amount of silicon that’s gone into them, or maybe it’s the nutrients but it’s very hard to administer a break without actually puncturing the tubular stem itself. I might just try and do one now. I’ve never really seen a double snap, but we’re going to do it because it’s in front of the camera, I just hope it doesn’t
