gets the job done and works really well, if you don't know what you're doing it's easy to mess up as with any nutes. But taking the conservative approach with these nutes does a great job.

Commented by PaulT PaulT

so the grow was a great grow but I didn't really get the harvest I was looking for. I maybe harvested a touch too early but I didn't want the weed to get me stuck to the couch. it had an amazing taste that just intensified throughout curing. I did get over the indica pretty fast though. I'm more of a sativa type of guy.

Grow Questions
PaulT week 12 started grow question 5 years ago
My plant is extremely bushy and thick with a lot of nodes coming up in random places. Will this be a problem in flowering? Can I just separate the colas as they develop in flowering? My concern is the light getting to each cola. However my 1200W LED is doing a good job atm.

The plamt is looking great and bushy. And when colas begin to get big, you may need some sticks of bamboo to help hold them up but yes also to kind of separate them for good airflow. I think your light will also be good through flowering, 1200 led is pretty powerful. However if you were to do a slight defoliation and remove any leaves blocking those bud sites, it will help immensely, taking off 10-20% in the veg and then another small one into early flowering. Just dont get too carried away removing leaves as the plant will still need some good healthy ones.
Happy growing great job already.
PaulT week 14 started grow question 4 years ago
In a weeks time(when my stretch is over)I will defoliate a few fan leaves covering colas. So... how much should I cut, fan leaves higher or lower on the stem and what effect will this have on growth and yield? does time of day or time in the watering cycle of the cutting matter?

Think of defoliation as a last resort. First try to LST to open up the canopy and/or tuck leaves.
Now when defoliating, what you want to expose is not buds (or stems), is lower leaves that are connected to those lower buds. When selecting what leaves to defoliate, be sure there are other leaves below to catch the light it was receiving and that on the point where it join a branch / stem there's smaller leaves that will continue to catch light to feed said node. If you've never done it, do a couple of leaves each time, or you might get carried away and leave a bald plant.

flowering week 7 i was unable to give my plant attention and she was exposed to some cold conditions at night around 8-14 degrees Celsius for a week. my pistols withered and browned and leaves look nutrient burnt and over-watered as a result. do i leave her to grow or harvest?

My recommendation would be to let her grow. Obviously, get the temperature back to where it should be too. But she should be fine. Cannabis is much more resilient than most people give it credit for. Good luck! :+1:
