Questions Proper lollipopping technique?
Hi, I have a scrog grow going, and I'm at day 15 of flowering and working on lollipopping my plants. I have a few spots where there are nodes on some major branches that have branches (I'll call them subbranches for lack of a better term) that reach into the top of the canopy, so have nice buds forming at the top, but the subbranches also have nodes on those branches with bud sites that are too low down to get adequate light.
Should I cut the subbranches at the base and sacrifice the bud sites up high in the canopy, or should I just cut off the low bud sites (and sub-subbranches) on the subbranches?
If it matters, I have a HLG 300L Rspec light in a 2 foot by 4 foot (.6 m x 1.2 m) tent.
If above the scrog has 2-3 nodes or more, keep it, if it has less, remove it I hope that helps. It is hard finding the right ones to keep and which to get rid of. After the lolly popping, if the canopy is still a bit too crowded, you can always remove more : ) Just try and get it all done in one sitting so you don't have to stress the plant out on numerous days.

You might be OK but 15 days might be a little early. I like to go 20 after flip to be sure. If you lollipop too soon your plant will stretch like a monster. Good luck, I hope it works out
