Day 29 - so I’ve made it to day 29 and all 3 have survived! ALL green, no signs of nute burn or other issues! So happy with there progress so far! Just hoping it doesn’t get too crowded for them.
Still feeding 2l of water with 4ml/l grow 4ml/micro 4ml/l bloom 1ml/l CalMag every 2-3days. Plants are happy with the routine :) any advice is greatly appreciated :D
Day 30 - I did some defoliation and LST on Snow White, hopefully I did it right and I hope she recovers.
Day 31 - girls are growing nicely, gaining a little height each day day. Dopey is really working on her flowering, the other 2 will catch up :)

Grow Questions
ItsLegalInMyHouse week 1 started grow question 5 months ago
Hi everyone, I need some advice here. I am currently using a 200W dual spectrum CFL for Vegatation however I know that I will require a more powerful setup for flowering, if I want to get a good yield from all 3 plants. Can anyone tell me what would be better, HPS or LED?

So the solution is easy but depends all of your cash budget, I explain better: Led light consume a lot less power and have better results in all the stages considering the low heat produced too, HPS instead cost a lot less but produces lot of heat and consume a lot of power. So I usually raccomand led light (more compact- high efficiency- low heat production) Tell me If this answer was useful for you or not, I can give you some advice about what led u can buy on budget.
ItsLegalInMyHouse week 5 started grow question 4 months ago
Defoliation, is it worth it? It’s the start of week 5, my 3 plants are growing in a tight tent and the leaves are starting to cross between them. I’m worried that the smaller plants won’t get enough light but I’ve never defoliated before and I am nervous to try. any advice? :)

Hi there ! If some lower bud sites and your smaller plants can't get enough light then I would do defoliation. You don't need to remove the whole leaf , if only few parts of it are obscuring the light then cut them instead of the whole leaf ! You are in the first week of stretch so if you don't really want to give a defoliation a try , you can also knit your leaves together to increase light penetration !! :grin::+1:
ItsLegalInMyHouse week 10 started grow question 3 months ago
Hi all! I was checking on my plants and noticed one of them is showing yellow/brown spots in some the top leaves, only showing on 1 plant but I’m nervous it’s leaf septoria?? The plant is in week 10 and is my last pic on week 10 diary. Does anyone know what this could be? :)

Hi @ItsLegalInMyHouse! This looks more like a nutrients deficiency or excess in the past weeks, leaf septoria creates round-shaped yellow&brown spots, you're just having a slight yellowing between the veins. Enjoy your harvest! :facepunch:

@SpinnerGrow thanks for the answer dude! I’ve only defoliated on Snow White which was always going to my experiment plant as I am new to all this, I topped her a week or two ago but didn’t want to put her through anymore stress, I will admit I’ve went a bit crazy with the defoliation on her and LST, I accidentally broke one of the main stems from the intersect ever so slightly, I’m hoping she will be able to heal and regain her strength! The other 2 I am letting them grow naturally, just defoliating 1 for now. Are you able to look at the pics I just uploaded and let me know if I did it okay? :joy: hopefully I haven’t stunted her growth

@ItsLegalInMyHouse,From what I can see it is well done ! You defoliate to let the middle stems get more light so it will increase your canopy ! Your LST is good , every stems are well bended and the broken stem will heal in a week or 2 ! Some peoples are stessing their plants more than you and still get a pretty good result so I wouldn't worry if I were you ! I'll stay around & you can hit me anytime you'll need some help , I'll try to do my best ! :+1:
