Because of the stretch, my light was getting a little close to the canopy so in addition to giving the light more space, I used a rack from the shelf thing I have the bucket on to function as a sort of scrog. It has a pretty good shape for weaving the branches through and already is helping even out the height and space out the colas. Trichomes also started to come in on and around the bud sites, the only smell comes from touching the area and smells very sweet. I think I'm probably finished with defoliation, I left the top 2 sets of leaves as well as the ones growing out of the colas. Runoff ph was about a 6.5-7 so any ph issues appear to have been fixed and the coloration looks very healthy.

Grow Questions
le_epic_doge week 8 started grow question 3 years ago
I've been getting some of the burnt tips as a result of the watering with nutes. The nute mixture is already half the recommended dose. I've tested my runoff pH and its about 4 or 5 even though I've been pHing my water to be around 7 and no lower than 6. Anyone have any tips?

Feed Water Water (check the drain) Water/or/Feed (depending on the last drain). You’re feeding to often , nutrients start to crystalize and turn into NaCl (salt) creating an hypertonic condition in the media and pH start to drop, the plant has to reverse the flow of her fluids (water) to turn the media back into an isotonic condition but she won’t be able to balance the pH .... you must give a good flush asap before serious problems start to appear !

I currently have the secondary CFLs (2x65w) sort of below the canopy (see pictures) in an attempt to get more out of the shorter branches. Would I be better off moving them up towards the top or will the lower portion have some use for the light?

Well before i answer the Question, its no mistake to add some more light, if you can. Your Girls will be grateful and the Buds will develop better.

So back to your answer. youve managed it to give her anice scrog. And personally me wont give some light under the canopy, If there are little flowers, pick them and let them dry.. always a nice "midtime" smoke. I would concentrate on the canopy flowers, and pick away the ones from the bottom. If they are quite near to the canopy, let them grow, they may grow much more. happy growing

Very nice Pictures and a good idea with the scrog.... She looks healthy and well trimmed, but i fear you will need more light from above, ... it will make a big difference. I wont give her light from under the canopy, it may worry her( growing in light direction. I think the lower branches can make it to the canopy. and if they are to low...... cut them. Your Girls have anice shape. I would defoilate the 15 cm from the bottom and let the other branches like they are , to grow in direction to the light
OR:::: you put your pot onto something, to lift the hole plant, so that more budsites aboce the scroc.
Then tra to "web" the branches into the scrog (very soft) so that the plant is spread and the canopy is even.
You can look @mad_scientist he does it in perfection

@Mrs_Larimar, I took one of the bigger ones from the bottom that was otherwise getting thrown out and found another space to put it so it will have some veg time. There weren't any flowers yet so it should hopefully grow at least semi normal.

@le_epic_doge,well just try it......normally you take the clones earlier, so that they habve more time to grow... but try it.....i have no big experience in cloning... just do it accidently, if i snap a branch^^

@Mrs_Larimar, I just finished trimming the bottom portion and now I'm wondering if it would be a good idea to take a clone, plant it, and just give it 12/12 in the same space as the mother
