I couldn't edit previous post but this is the outside setup. 16" fan is in front of open window. The 6" fan blows into shower.

what does the schedule call for?
Nothing. It's never eaten until now. It'll be 400 ppm's. That's where I was at last time and I still have roots dropping and some twisting up of new growth. Ends are twisted. I'll take a pic because there's something else bothering me. I'll be home in a couple hours.

First pic is the twisted ends on new growth. It was 300 ppm of nutes and 100 Calmag for 400ppm, I used just the micro and bloom. I wanted something that promotes veg growth. I was thinking of the trio at mild veg for a 1/4tsp per gallon. That puts me at 400ppm with Calmag or do I feed it the same nutes I used?

Second pic is what bothers me. Not the twisted ends that's part of the Nute issue and mild light burn possibly. At the edge of leaves they're folded, is that a gnat issue or something else? I know it may be wind but definitely not humidity. I've had that issue since I think the 7 fingered leaves and I'm on 9 fingers now and it's still doing it. Plant is 18 inches tall.

Thanks.

Nevermind, it's heavy veg schedule. That's the one I went with and it it got some growth.

I had no choice I tucked some. The under growth looked bad. The pic is 12 hours after tuck this morning at 2am. Not really tucked more of moved large fans leaves aside allowing undergrowth to pop up above fan leaf stem then rest the against each other.

Wish I went photo but it is what it is. I defoliated the small stuff from the bottom this morning and now the plant seems happy. Also switched up to transition feed this morning, it's only difference to seedling feed is strength. I'll stick with that till it's time for bloom. I have 7, 8, 9 and 10 fingered leaves. If I end up with a 13 fingered leaf it will confirm my suspicions this plant is possessed.

10 fingered leaf and an 8 fingered leaf. Not much too say other than plant looks ok but I'm not holding my breath.

"Captain's Log, Stardate 1218.21. Star maps reveal no indication of habitable planets nearby. Origin and purpose of the plant still unknown. We've been here, held motionless, for 18 hours."

Just kidding. Things look good, my only issue is I'm running out of height.

Question at this point for future reference is. Is it better to have more light or light intensity?

I know I should have listened about lsting. Topping was never an option as that was a promise I made myself before germination.

This particular plant likes. 5.77pH - 5.82pH, 72f - 74f water temps, 55rh - 60rh. Get great grow days when outside air blows across it.

The white you see on bucket, shower curtain and on the left are scrap blackout blinds I pieced together. I do not recommend using blackout blinds as it's a whole new light game.

you didn't listen then, you ain't gonna listen now. lol!
if its photoperiod top it, get your height back and allow the lower branches to grow further. You also get a clone this way 🍻

It's supposed to be an auto but If it's photo then it gets topped even mainlined. I was under the impression it was close to flowering at week 4 so don't do anything. I did defoliate the bottom few days ago. I figure January 4th I'll start doing something. It smells nice like gassy tomatoes.

usually being patience has good results.

I heavy defoliated today now only bud sites and 4 mature fan leaves. Oh, I believe the long veg is stress. Before defoliating the stems grew long. Super long and I think that was my fan stressing it. I'll have to look into fans.

What do I do? I heavy defoliated, new res water from 400ppm down to 300ppm and it ate for a little over 24 hours, grew taller, flower sites grew and now it's back to steady. Is that because it's out of food? This plant just gets taller even over night. 1/2" during lights on and 1/2” during the 6 hours lights out. Pic below is growth since Saturday and it's all flower sites.

when are you going to flip her to flower? Don't forget that there is a long stretch when you flip her

Flip? I thought because it's an auto I wait. It is acting photo but... Only one side one each site is actually putting on small growth. Not sure if you can see. I'll flip starting tomorrow if you think I should do 12/12?
