Nutrients

Nutrients worked well with no surprises. Very easy to dose properly once you know what you are looking at.

Hard to quantify how well Recharge worked since this is my first grow. Definitely didn't hurt to have it, though.

This plant grew a little slower than the AK 47. The buds turned out prettier with very orange pistils throughout.

Grow Questions
HomerAndAbe week 6 started grow question 8 months ago
Inside of the canopy is pretty light green. Is this due to light penetration issues? Now that I have defoliated some, will they get darker?

Dark green leaves are not something to be desired, they are a symptom of nitrogen toxicity, meaning too much grow nutes. Light green foliage is much better. Unless of course you mean yellowing leaves. Your pictures look great, don't worry.
HomerAndAbe week 10 started grow question 7 months ago
A number of lower fan leaves have started to yellow and die on both plants. I have increased FloraMicro dosage but it doesn't seem to have helped. Is this something other than an N deficiency? I think it is too early for the plant to be scavenging resources from the fan leaves.

This is potassium issue that is developing in your leaves. You should increase your bloom nutrient and this should solve your issue. It is highly unlikely that the leaves that are currently affected will recover so the sooner the better. Increase your feeding of bloom nutrients by 1/4 your current recommended dosage as directed on the container label. Attactched is an article for potassium deficiencies: https://www.growweedeasy.com/potassium-deficiency-cannabis
