Start of Week 4 of flower, added one more Mars Hydro 300w LED and added cal-mag! Leaves seem a little darker green then I think they should be and also noticing some maroon/reddish stems on some fan leaves.
I will be using advanced nutrients jungle juice M/G/B line in Pro Mix BX. Isil it about time to start adding nutrients? What is a good starting number for the beginning? I was going to start at 200 ppm with increments of 50 every week but I'm no expert :) THANKS!
nah man wait at least till you re-pot, you risk over doing it, and you can see the beging of some lock out happening... start at the bottom of week three after you repot... just my two cents ! Good luck with the grow !
Hello @Ak_keith ! The point of defoliation is to increase the light penetration and air circulation. Since at this point your canopy doesn't seem to thick i wouldn't do anything but in about a week you will definitely need to cut some leaves. More leaves certainly doesn't mean more photosynthesis especially when these leaves are at the bottom of the plant and don't receive any light. Except of that there are other factors that limits the photosynthesis rates like the co2 quantity the light intensity and the limits that rubisco enzyme sets ( an enzyme responsible for co2 fixation to energy ). Happy growing ! :facepunch:

What is your go to response when you see yellow tips on leaves 3 weeks into flower? I know the idea is to "dial back" the nutes but what exactly does that mean? Just water fresh water a couple of times in a row? Or drop PPM buy like 100 for a watering session?
in soil the best is following the water water feed water water feed schedule, especially making sure the wet dry cycle is strictly adhered to. If you're feeding more regularly than that dialing it back may mean reverting to this schedule then. By the time you catch the symptoms the problem has been going on for a while already, so keep that in mind! Hope this helps AKKeith ! :rocket:
