Bruce Banner Fast Version.
Going into Week 4 flowering tonight.
She’s been praying for about 5 days now. Either too much light or too much Nutes?
I moved the MARS HYDRO TS 600W LED all the way to the top of the closet, no good. I moved it outside the closet facing in (now its a good 20 inches away). Still no good.
Been following the GeneralHydroponics Flora schedule but only using half strength for life of plant until 5 days ago. Plant has done fantastic.
I started paying more attention to PPM levels early in the 3rd week of flowering (about 5 days ago). I noticed my PPM’s were only around 3-400; so instead of topping off with fresh PH balanced water I mixed my nutes enough to bring the total PPM in the 5 gallon reservoir to about 700 in total, making the EC 1.4 (which in my research is acceptable).
PH constantly monitored several times a day. Today it’s at a 6. PPMs at 450.
Temp 71 Humidity 51
Air pump on 24/7. For life of plant I have put new PH balanced nute mix into reservoir once every week (Sundays). Roots are healthy and strong (using Hydroguard life of plant).
Thanks Covertgrower, I guess I’m looking into it too much. I thought the leaves weren’t supposed to pray like that. It does seem extreme to me. Some days they are almost vertical, especially the ones in the center.
Drinkslinger, I know. I was late to the game in understanding super-cropping and defoliation. I stripped the plant of lower leaves and flower producing stems about a week ago, along with a few inner leaves to let light in. Other than pulling off damaged or yellowing leaves now, I am a bit timid in removing any more this far into flower stage. Bruce Banner is only supposed to be 6-7 weeks apparently so I am just after halfway point of flower.
In addition to that I have moved the plant outside the tent a bit so it is more than halfway still in the reflective tent but has more space to move. The plant started to develop longways so I just turned her a quarter ways and pulled her slightly out of closet. Now the light is directly above her again and she has more space to move.
I haven’t grown the fast version of BB. The ilgm version seems to take 9-10 weeks for me.
I’d put your plants around 2 weeks of flower.
It seems the leaves closest to the tent opening are praying less.
It could be a crowding issue, or environmental.
