This week was the worst!!! Like i mentioned the previous week - RH had been getting out of control. Luckily because I had so much circulation within the tent white powdery mold (WPM) did not settle any where on the plants. I did however notice that my tent no longer had negative pressure when the AC kicked on and the smell was being pushed out of the tent (positive pressure from AC blower). I took a look at my carbon filter and the edges where covered in WPM. took the outer cover filter off and gave it a little slap and a white cloud poofed every where!!! like a cloud of baby powder. lol. So i removed the plants and sanitized the tent and carbon filter and washed the outer filter sleeve.

Now there is a constant negative pressure in the tent regardless of AC or not. and RH has been somewhat under control. The problem is the plants were too leafy and i cant keep RH below 60% unless I keep the tent door flap open - this is not acceptable during lights off because of light leak - but then RH creeps up to high 70s. Sooooooo....

I super duper defoliated the plants - I know this is a kind of a big no no with Autos but it was either this or let the plants rot. Luckily this is the end of week 3 for flowering and the stretch is over and the plants have been very healthy other wise so they should take it like a champ. I took out the rest of the wispy colas, giant leaf fans sweating everywhere and blocking bud sites, and strategically removed other leaves. I definitely over did it and I will see lower yields because of it but this is better than no yields because of bud rot. This grow is about learning and I am definitely doing a lot of that.

RH is now under control and hovering in the high 40's low 50's after defoliating. gonna keep up with week 8 diary better than the last two.

Grow Questions

Yellow spotting with some holes
New colas that are breaking through to the canopy have some yellow spotting on the leaves and some of the spots have holes. What is this?
-Ph on run off is good.
-Plant got some nute burn 4 days ago but I reduced the feed.
-This is 4 days after LST and lights brought closer

The tips look like nitrogen toxicity, which you already corrected apparently. If it stops spreading, you're good. Those small yellow spots could be just about a million things, but I would try to solve that one unless it starts spreading. Keep it up!

Broken/damaged stem at node
Is this a good enough job to repair a partial broken stem w/ cotton twine?
Stem broke at the base of the node. Still firmly attached/stands on its own before being tied. Could even move the whole plant when manipulated. The damage has to be 24 hours old.
Any advice appreciated

Hey mate,
I'm sure she'll take it like a champ. Happened to me many times, just keep the node tight up and you'll see in a week to 10 days it should be fully healed.
Good luck and happy trails for the rest of the way :crossed_fingers:

High RH
The RH where i live is 70%-99%. RH in home is 58%(+/-3%) and I cannot get the tent below 55% with a dehumidifier.
For the flowering stage (which I am in now) how detrimental will it be if I cant get RH lower?
Any advice/experience to help avoid bud rot will be greatly appreciated

Then you're probably good..

It would be best if you could humidity down to 40 - 45% tops, but with good airflow 55% isn't the worst.

Possible mold issue
I've had a drastic change in smell... overnight. Smell went from very pungent to an earthy almost musty smell. Could this be a precursor to bud rot? Or is this sometimes normal? Humidity avg 50-55% during day and no higher than 65% at night with constant ventilation/circulation

First, a change of smell alone may not be mold, but you'll want to look them over for symptoms... check out google images for some examples and go to work. you've probably smelled a moldy room before... if it has hints of that, it's not a great sign but i'd still observe for 100% verfication before doing anything crazy..

Those aren't dangerous levels for microbial growth. The night time humidity is a bit inviting but borderline. You may be colonized and need a deep clean of the area and the room, especially if you have a recorring problem. If you do find some rot, definitely decontaminate the area thoroughly before next grow. Try cutting out any rot and carefully removing, like you would with a pollen sac -- with concern about spread.
