Hey all, after about 5 soil auto grow I decided to go another direction. Giving coco and Photo seeds a try.
First off, coco has been an absolute game changer for me thus far. You can find all my previous posts about nutrient issues I had on every single grow in soil/autos. So far, starting 5th week things are going so much better. So fingers crossed this trajectory continues into flower.
I probably should have already flipped but I just transplanted in their final 3gal pots. So im gonna let them simmer for a week or so and try to get her to spread out (again should have trained earlier).
Question on defoliating, she is looking real crowded so wanted to get advice on if I should star trimming lower leaves and how far do I take it?
As long as these are photos and not autos id say trim them up some it will grow back extremely quick if you did any defoliation today youd probably never know by next week especially with being in coco and getting daily feedings
I usually try to get anything I want out of the way 1-2 weeks before I flip to flower. The more I take the more time I leave for healing before flip. Then 3 weeks in I do another leaf pull, from them on I take here and there if I see shadows on bud sites I want
Little update, more for my benefit. They been chillin in veg for about a week now. Can’t even tell I defoliated, probably didn’t take enough due to being paranoid of taking off too much.
Overall they are going fantastic relative to all my soil grows. Been a 7 week veg and it’s time. Split a couple branches training so needed extra time to let them heal up.
Being my first photo how not sure, but have concerns these are going to blow up and run out of room in the tent. But I think I will flip them tomorrow and see how it goes.
@BeezNeez Coco is the whip, they just need feed daily. Some ppl have them set up auto pots, and auto watering were they are feed a number of times a day. I feed daily and they do pretty well. Yours are looking sweet.
