First grow. Using Maxsisun Full Spectrum LEDs (3 - MU1000’s, and 1 - MU 1500). Have run 24hrs until a week ago. Began with 4hrs off a night, adding 30 minutes of dark a day until I hit 12.
Day 45, so six weeks in. Coco Coir+Perlite, Nutes thanks to GH. (varying development due to being WAY too acidic the first couple weeks until I figured things out; 5 casualties. )
Fan pushing air in, and high-velocity fan blowing out the back. LOTS of mostly indirect airflow!
Temp max 78-81F, low at night down to 69-73F.
LST and branches tied down to open for access to light.
Should I continue to thin fan leaves? I’ve defoliated 3-4 times to keep direct light on all node growth. A couple have tons of pistil locations (Bubblegum rocking close to 40?!)
Should I eliminate bud locations or let it ride?
Any help is appreciated - I know I’ll probably get opposing views on thinning leaves out again.
Buds? I have an idea I’ll be told to eliminate a ton of lower-located growth, but OMG I am struggling with that.
TIA for helping out a complete nube…
