Any idea about how to handle the crowding at top? Should I try to trim back or just leave it alone? Seems like the leaves are burning, but keeping flowers off the light.

Hi @BeefWellingtons! I guess you're not able to increase the light distance? You could try to defoliate, by removing a lot of leaves, then use LST to prevent buds from touching the light. Or you can try to supercrop, by pinching and "breaking" down the main stems. Hope this helps, keep us up-to-date and happy growing!

At this stage the only thing that will work is supercroping. I've done it with great results during the whole flowering stage. To do it, put the stem (that is still green and not woody) between your thumb and forefinger and press firmly until you hear / feel a crunch, this will leave the skin intact, after this the branch will bendiciones close to 90°, tip tie down the branch or ir will retake its old position real quick in a couple of days
