    I agree it's more for early stage correction. I'm in love with the micro for easy peasy foliar fixin too! :)

    Im going to have to defoliate soon. This canopy does not have enough airflow throughout. I understand the objections to this technique, however mold and bud rot would be worse than any yeilds i may or may not be losing. Im not doing a full strip.. just enough to allow adequate airflow and light penetration. Im open for debate. I wont strip for 10 more days.

    If I recall, you started at the bottom and moved up last time and it seemed to be just the ticket. Pros vs cons weighed, id say... your instincts were correct ; )

    Day 15
    Some massive stretch on the strawberry eclair and one of the super lemons (18 inches over the white pvc flip line). Purple haze, pineapple chunk and the other super lemon haze are staying short (12in). All are stacking a lot of budsites. The skunky smell in the tent wafts out whenever i unzip the doors. I have stopped foliar feeding. All plants recovered. Im also keeping the ppms in the 760 range. Running full flowering nutes now. Ph ranges from 5.7 to 6.1.
    You can see in one of the pics the pvc frame for the screen. This is where they were when i switched to 12 hours. Its quite a bit of stretch to handle. Im going to defoliate in 6 days or so, once im sure they are done stretching. There is just too much leaf matter for proper airflow and light penetration.

    Day 21
    The buds are really stacking on all the plants. Trichomes are evident as well. It looks like the stretch has stopped which means its time to strip some of these leaves off. The air flow is nil and the humidity is a little high...not a good combo. So over the next few days i will be systematically stripping down the leafy material. Little by little from each plant as to not over stress them.
    Ph has been stable and in range.
    Ppms are around the 750 range.
    This being my second grow with the sf4000 and sp 250s i have to say i got my moneys worth.
    The smell in the tent is skunky with a tinge of lemon pledge.
    Strawberry eclair is on the front left of the picture. It looks like i will have several dozen baseball bat colas. Its frosty and stinky like a pungent sort of funk. I bet its going to be the heavyweight.
    Purple haze is on the front right. It has some purple sugar leaves already. Frosty and skunky. Its Its stacking some nice colas as well.
    Middle table is the pineapple chunk. It was always the smallest plant. Clearly indica dominant. Not going to be the best yeilder as it has smallish colas forming. It is my only indica dom.
    Rear table are two different phenos of super lemon haze. Problem children of the grow. The one on the left has stretched like a sativa should. It has the lemon smell as advertised and looks frosty.
    The right one barely stretched at all, has a more indica cola structure, and while frosty has no lemon smell at all. It was also the last one to recover from the overfeeding in veg.
    I will post pics after the strip is done. IMG_20200125_081226.jpg IMG_20200125_081216.jpg IMG_20200125_081210.jpg IMG_20200125_081204.jpg IMG_20200125_081137.jpg IMG_20200125_081132.jpg IMG_20200125_081146.jpg

    Day 25
    Almost done with the leaf strip. The vast majority was done yesterday. Today they have no signs of stress. They are breathing better now. I cleared a ton of choked out undergrowth from the bottom of the screen. 2 5 gallon buckets of leaf and larf

    Real talk, that looks like it should be in a textbook. Deep breathing principles for botanical wellness, or something. Amazing job.

    Great journal!
    Are you using only the 3 part GH Nutes or are you using some of the additives also?
