I concur, don't be afraid to give them light. I learned that from one of my posts and people replying with the amount of heat that are on their plants and the light that they get, they will take it. Now on my second grow and not so sensitive with the light and whatnot, I'm actually giving my second grow nutrients now and hammering them with as hard as I can, they love it. They are a lot bushier than the last Grow. Two will be removed later as only six are female but as of now there are eight plants concentrated into a 2 ft by 4 ft area with 1900 watts. 600 watt HPS and 1300 watts cree xpg-5k LEDs. None of the leaves are yellow, that's just the HPS playing mind games.

Don't shade them.

I absolutely have to cover plants for stealth and i use as clear as possible. I do see some benefits from covering them like less pests and less extreme wind or rain that could break them. I am however losing some light intensity by covering them. Marijuana can benefit from the brightest of days so you cannot have too much light.

Thanks. Seems like you are an inventive sort! On that subject, maybe you'd be interested in my diy air pot as I grow outdoors and happily for me sky's the limit as far as plant size. Season here is mid-March if you just can't wait, but April 1 better. Weather throws everything at you. But I grew some landrace sativas that I'm just harvesting at 8 - 10 feet in 16-inch pots in my version of "super soil". All organic with feed consisting, over the season, of molasses, kelp, de-chorlinated water, and for dessert and a special treat, I bought them some Bud Candy for blooming part.
