It has been soooo stressful this week. I donated 2 to my friend and one is about to go so I only have the two pictured. Growing fast and strong. Just now seeing the 4th set of leaves develope. Yesterday I noticed the roots are turning brown but the plants have no symptoms of root rot. I changed my reservoir and coated it entirely with foil and taped up all possiblelight leaks. Upped my hydroguard dose and lowered the temp in my grow room to average in the upper 70s. Today I noticed These babies, (Raelynn and Raeline), are growing voraciously and are not showing any signs of root rot at all. There is no bad smells from the res and no physical signs. Idk. Baffled and hoping it is just nute stain. When changing the reservoir I did not scrub as I did not want to loose the good bacteria I have cultured. Fi gets crossed because if all goes well will be starting my Nebula Haze's Manifolding technique along with some LST. Open to advice and comments please...

Not sure why the nute levels are off so badly.... see pic to see actual levels... I input the correct amount but when I save I get crazy numbers. Lol sorry

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:

Man, you dodged a bullet with that root rot! Great solution btw. Plants look great! So your next step is manifold. Have fun. I'll be watching. Take a good shot of whisky before you start. Its painful to manifold. Soooo much carnage!:scream:

@Quexos, I did it. The manifold is done. It was soooooo much carnage. Hated to do it tho. Man. But they're 2 days into it now and doing really good. Growing by the hour. Lol. Will post pics tomorrow...

@OkieJim, Nice healthy looking structure. Nice job! Its amazing how something so tiny can have such drastic results. I guess its that closed system. The secret is finding the root:joy::joy: of the problem instead of making it worse.

OkieJim
OkieJim

@Quexos,yes. I am extremely worried about it. But they are growing like nothing ever happened and I have new white feeler roots, (as Nebula calls them) popping out everywhere! I found it's the little things like LIFHT LEAKS ESPECIALLY THE LITTLE ONES! that do the most damage when mixed with little thi gs like heat or not properly paying attention to the small details... see new pics I uploaded this morning

Cheated a little and stuck my phone in the reservoir for a sneak peek at root growth. They are doing amazing! Also uploaded them and today's pics of the girls. Now I will be patient until Saturday. Hopefully lol
