Day 85: As I mentioned in yesterday's post (one week back) just a clean gallon of water for last feed. Next watering anticipated to be day 87.

Noticed she was giving off a smell reminiscent of sour diesel while I was down watering. Looks like I'm definitely going to need to defoliate again...

The clones are doing good, not much to report on the two potted ones. Of the other 4, one of the oldest 3 gave off roots finally, and the newest one is still hanging out.

Day 86: Timer / Power-strip enhancement today so I can mess with what's always on.

Day 87: First, I'm not sure exactly how worried to be, but when feeding tonight I noticed the dehumidifier that I turned to be always on has a single green led on it. It would have been on last night and up til 10pm on a 730am-730pm schedule tonight. I'm lucky I guess I missed the light window and waited to blindly water in the dark, and that it's green. I don't see any signs of stress or reveg so hopefully I'm ok.

Defoliation this evening before the lights went out, 3 or so handfuls of fan leaves and 3-4 small buds at the bottom with no chance of light now. Tried to focus just where there was heavy growth with touching leaves so I don't run into mold or something else from poor circulation.

Fed with only 2L/.5gl vs 1gal since I couldn't move to the tub to catch the run off, and I didn't want to leave it on the mat all night. I've found I've no need to add pH down to my water when adding tiger bloom at the strength I have been. 6.6pH, 71F, 771ppm, 1 tsp FFTB, .5 tsp FFGB, 1.5 tsp FFBB, 1ml AN B-52.

Day 88: Hopefully looking slightly less bushy now.

Day 89: New Camera if nothing else.

Grow Questions
Smokin_Joe week 4 started grow question 2 months ago
Topping
Topping Question: When Topping, tutorials state to wait til you have 4-6 nodes. Does this count the cotyledon leaves, or for that matter the first single serrated leaf? Where do you begin counting nodes?
Thanks in advance!

The first true leaf! not the cotyledon leafs. Hope this helps! Happy growing!

Topping
Sorry - Another topping / training question: When is the best time to "Top" your plants in regards to time of the day, e.g. morning/midday/night in terms of light schedule?
In short: do you cuts your plants when the lights come on, before they go off, or somewhere in between?

I don't think it makes a difference really. Whatever time is most suitable for yourself. For me it is in the morning before lights go off or sometimes in the evening when the just come on. What I will say though, is make sure she's well fed and healthy looking before doing and most strains bounce back very, very quickly. :+1::seedling:

Leaf Discoloration - Hopefully Nothing
I'm looking to rest my concerns that these removed fan leaves from lower/center canopy are not simply just appearing so due to lack of light and prior plant tie damage.

Focus on the yellow/brown discoloration, actual physical damage is accounted for.

More details in main post.

After reading the main post and checking out the leaves that you removed, I would have to say it is from lack of light and prior tie damage. Everything else seems fine.

Circulation / Exhaust
Getting ready to install carbon filter; found myself wondering if growers typically leave their filters/exhaust/fans on during dark periods?

Up to this point, I've had everything on one power-strip/timer: circulation fan, exhaust fans, and lights. Should I keep anything on 24/7?

Most definitely need to run fans always. Humid stagnant air Is molds best friend. Cutting the fans off is inviting mould to germinate and take over. U always want air exchange and airflow in ur tent. Happy growing and stay lit fam.
