This is just my second grow. First one hermied as I had too much plant and not enough light. I only have 3 plants now. The closet is 8 ft long but only using the center of it and about 1 1/2 wide. I can barely get these girls directly under the light. I’m not sure how much cone it throws? I have the HPS ballast set on 750 but wondering if I should turn ballast to 1000??
Also, defoliated and did a mild canopy before going into flower. I defoliate the huge fans leaves about every other day but seems like they just produce two for every one I cut off! Lol.
So now entering week 3. Tiny buds are starting to be apparent. Should I really give them a good trimming now? I don’t know if I can keep defoliating well into flowering?
I was also wondering if I could add a small LED light on the end to make sure there’s enough light even though ballast is HPS??
Thanks for your time.
