So I guestimated the ml amounts on the list above. Just what was suggested on the box minus 25% except used full strength floramicro.

Been an anxious week. Reservoir is changed with about 2 inches of clearance between the 12 gallons of water solution and the bottom of the net pots. I now understand about the bubbles popping. Didnt realize they would be so agro. Awesome. Didnt get pics like a dummy but the roots are about 1/4 of an inch out of the bottom of the pots. Just one main taproot from each pot. They should do something this week.

Thank you to everyone that lent me advice. I know I can ne annoying but your help is greatly appriciated..!!!

Grow Questions
OkieJim week 10 started grow question 4 years ago
Per defol, is it true the less budsites you leave after defoliation,(cutting smaller budsites and stems), the bigger and better your buds get and increased harvest weight? It seems like reverse to me...
Resolved
Techniques. Defoliation
CRiSPrGrow answered grow question 4 years ago
hey man yes, basically for defoliation people over do it on the leaves which leaves the plant with less tools to absorb the light energy for photosynthesis. bad leaf defoliation can hurt yield, increase time to harvest, that sort of thing.... however pruning the flower nodes especially the little flower nodes that are located down the branch that will stay small, the so called popcorn bud, if you remove them early enough in flower , then this will force the plant to send the energy to the upper flower sites and these will get fatter, actually improving the yield. I hope this helps my friend ! i will follow and see how it works out for you ! :rocket:

@Mrs_Larimar, thank you. My wife does not "get it" and before this I didn't either. Lol. Anxiety is crazy, I babysit them like a new puppy. Show them as much attention as I can.
