She's just started flowering :blush:I started the week with compost tea which is my favourite. You can find my simple recipe below.

End of the week: She's becoming a big girl just like her sister :) Nicely stretched along the week. I have experienced pH fluctuation first time and understood how important it is. Young leaves' tips and edges were slightly turning into yellow and some chlorosis showed up between veins. I guess they're signs of PK burn or Cal-Mag deficiency stems from low pH.

Day 22 - I watered with fresh compost tea at the end of the day. I added molasses and G.O Grow to the tea this time. Also made a light defoliation only on the main stem.
Day 24 - Switched to HPS bulb. Watered with aerated nutrient mix + bat guano.
Day 25 - Keep going with very selective defoliation. It was a rainy day here and I collected a bucket of sweet rain water at ph 6.8 :yum:
Day 27 - Watered with 1 l. aerated nutrient mix (1ml/l CalMag+1.5ml/l Root plus+1.5ml/l Seaweed+1ml/l Bloom+1ml/l Bud). CalMag contains N enough so I didn't add any Grow nutrient. PH'd with baking soda.
Day 28 - Foliar spray with 1.75 ml/l Cal-Mag solution.

Compost tea recipe:
10 ml/l dry worm casting
5 ml/l dry bat guano
2ml/l G.O Root plus
1.75 ml/l G.O. Seaweed
0.25 ml/l AN Sensi Calmag Xtra
0.25 ml/l G.O BioThrive Grow
0.5 Tsp/l organic molasses
36 hours brewing at 23-24 C

Grow Questions
FamousBlueRaincoat week 5 started grow question 4 months ago
I was really careful when defoliating so far and the plant is really bushy now. Should I remove big leaves blocking lower colas for more light penetration at this stage, or should I wait for stretching to end?

Hey BlueRaincoat! Yes at this point you can defoliate if you need/want to just be careful when doing so to not take off to much or any potential bud sites as it can affect yield. You can also try to tuck or bend some of the fan leaves out of the way to let some light through. or do a mix of both defoliation and tuck/bend them away and you wouldn't have to take as much off. Hope this helps Happy Growing:facepunch:
