I’m 17 days into flower and doing well, maybe too good. I’m a little worried about the size of my girl. I’ve tied down as many branches as I could and I did a light defoliation, but she is getting away from me!
My question is should I cut some of this growth out? Pretty much everything I’ve read says to leave plant alone when in flower so I have but thought I’d ask the community what your thoughts on my girl are and if I should continue to let her go?
Also I have another Phlizon light that I could add but space is tight and by my estimation I have 150w from wall or 32w per sqft with out it?
Anything else you guy’s see that needs to be addressed?
My concern was/is that I see so many finished grows where the plant only had five or six branches full of bud. This looked to me that these growers where trying to make sure everything was at the same level height wise. Where as mine is fuller?
I bought this clone in mid December. Started in dime store potting soil, 8 cfl’s for light, no nutes, un-Ph’ed water, ect. Basically didn’t do any research, got lucky I’d say.
Looks like a magnesium deficiency. If your using cal mag it’s time for a big flush. Nutrients may start getting locked out from salt build up and it usually starts about now depending on if you flushed before or not
If you were following the Fox Farms schedule which it kind of seems like you are with the trio, you would be pretty close to the recommended time to flush with sledgehammer. Possibly overdue. I’m sorry, I’m not looking at the schedule right now, just working from memory
Ok, I gave plant a flush with 5 gallons of 6.2 Ph’d water with five tsp of epsom salt. No nutes. At the end of flush I checked the run off and recorded a PH of 5.87. I also checked the PPM and it was 1020 at the half way point and 710 at the end of flush.
I thought that soil PH would be closer to the water at 6.20, do I need to raise soil PH? If so how do I best go about this?
Amazing how stressful this becomes as I get further and further along in the process. Had to take her outdoors to do the flush and had to smoke a bowl to knock the anxiety down.
