She is coming along nicely this week. First few darker hairs starting to show up and the buds are just ripening and swelling all over. Finally starting to stink up the place a bit too. Few weeks left to go!!
All my plants have purple stems on the leaves at this point. They look totally healthy besides that. Not sure how to resolve the issue or if it is not even big deal. Just don’t want to negatively impact yield. Any advice?
This could be a pre-sign of magnesium deficiency, but your leafs would not be in such good shape. Since all your leafs are looking healthy, and not showing any other sign of nutrient deficiency, this is probably strain related : no worries ! I'll be around, waiting for your next update, until then good luck with these beautiful girls bro !
Does anyone have any trimming advice? My neck and back and even hands hurt from trimming everything and I still have one left to go!! Easily taking me 3-4 hours per plant. Any suggestions!? Also do you prefer wet or dry? Pros and cons of each??
Theres no pros or cons to either, other than personal preference, there are no studies to show one is better than the other.
Trimming is a pain, and I know as I've done many big plants at one time needing more than one person to get involved. The best advice I can give is to get set up before hand and comfortable. Set up the TV, Ipad or whatever it is you want to watch or listen to. Next thing is positioning as your back will be the first thing to give out, try to sit up right as its easy to slouch down but don't. Use a pillow to support your lower/middle back. Pull off the big fan leaves before getting into trimming. Then begin trimming for 30 minutes or so, then have a little break, have a drink and something to eat and repeat. Theres really no secrets to it just hard work unless you have a bag trimmer or auto trimmer but i prefer to trim by hand. Hope this helps. We all go through it. Also, I find wet trimming easier as the buds are still swelled up. when dry its more hassle to get into.
