9/20 - Went out of town for a few days. Came back to some happy, now very tall girls! I did a little bit of defoliation to open up some bud sites, and added a light dusting of DE for pest prevention. On my next watering, I will top dress with Worm Castings and Dr. Earth 3-9-4. Things are looking great, I'm excited to see some more bud development!

Grow Questions

Mesh plastic pots and root health?
Is using these mesh plastic pots going to give me issues with lights getting to the roots for young seedlings? I plan to transplant into fabric pots well before they fill these up with roots, but they will likely be in these mesh plastic pots for 2ish weeks.

You should be fine with them. Once you see the roots you can transplant.

Seedling leaf color is very light green.
I'm wondering if there is any reason to be concerned with the lighter color leaves of one of my plants? They are significantly more "lime green" than the other two. he one in question is the bottom one in the picture attached. It is clear how much darker in color others are.

Quite normal and no real need for concern, it is just getting its root system organized before worrying about growing perfect leaves.
It is only a slight variation in chlorophyll maturity and by the second or third set of leaves, you will be wondering why you were worried in the first place!
Yes, don't leave transplanting too long, those pots are not large enough for much more than 1-2 weeks of growth.
Ideally, pots about 4 inches across and 5 inches deep are far more suitable, as their volume allows for good root development and growth for about 3 weeks.
Congratulations for experimenting with "Mykos", I believe they are the secret ingredient every grower should be aware of, their benefit is remarkable and their value to plant health can not be underestimated. I am a complete fan of it myself and can not ever imagine growing without it!
Hope this helps, Organoman.

Spotty/Blotchy Discoloration on leaf.
What is this spotty/blotchy discoloration on this leaf? None of the other plants have it, it didn't brush off when rubbed. Hoping it isn't a mold or a pest...I have been keeping the humidity around 65% with good airflow, but I'm wondering if it's time to bring it down to 60%.

I wouldn't worry, they look quite fine.
It is not a disease, excess, insects or deficiency, just a bit of a funny leaf.
Just remember, no plant will ever have 100% perfect leaves, 100% of the time.
Cheers, Organoman.

Is now the time to top?
Is this a good time to top? Most plants are developing their 5th or 6th node as pictured. Is it recommended to cut just above the 4th or 5th node? I am planning on doing "LBH’s Famous 4-Way LST" combined with SCrOG.

I generally like to top above the fifth node so I think now is a good time for your plant.

Are these early signs of thrips?
Are these indicators of thrips? It appears so to me. Dr. Zymes is a good solution from what I've read....is it? And what's the best way to foliar spray the plants so the LED light doesn't cook them?

Hmm.. yeah I’m not sure. Looks like physical damage in the first picture. Was it topped/FIMed there?

Usually with thrips you’ll see like a hazy whitish discoloration on the leaves- I’m not seeing that

As for dr zymes - I’ve used it with decent results. Switched to Green Cleaner because it wasn’t doing the job for aphids for me.

Anyhow, just spray minutes before lights out.. if you got a dimmer on your light, turn it down real low while you spray.

A lot of times I’ll just wait til the second my lights go off and turn on the low intensity ceiling light to spray them real quick then turn it off. It only takes 5 min so it’s not messing with the cycle.

Make sure you get underneath on the underside of the leaves and the tops. Pain in the butt sometimes but that’s the proper way to keep away certain pests. Good luck!

Unhealthy, discolored new growth
I'm seeing very unhealthy looking new growth from just one of the lower branches. What could this be?

Looks to be a ph issue... test soil runoff and may need a ph'd water flush.

Thank you for the well documented evolution of stretch and defoliation!! Perfect light for that space! I will have to do it with 480w of similar quality light but in a 4 x 4....
