cut away some of that xtra leaf..i thin out all threw veg and all threw flower and my plants are just fine..many other people do this as well with no side FX

ghost face gave you the best advice.prune some of that but only whats covering bud sites.after 18-21 days into flower do it again and then leave it alone.keep in mind you need to have good air flow ,over,under, and blowing around your plants.

Trimmed a little bit more today and will leave'm be for a month or so...due to tighter quarters there was a lot of bunching of the leaves and growth has been directed upward. I used some twist ties to position them a little bit and I feel comfortable that my bud sites all be getting the light they need. In my next run with this set up I will grow a maximum of three plants and utilize a nice SCROG. In the future I would like to try Hydro

Fed full 1/2 cup per gallon FF nutes today for the first time and leaving my girls with a baby sitter for the weekend...cant wait to see how much they develop over the course of the next 4 days while I am away as I have yet to go more than 16 hours without taking a peek

Question: should I alternate watering with and without nutes every feeding or should I give nutes every time I water?

Coming along pretty well, height doesn't seem to be a problem yet.

So everything has been going very smoothly...starting to get colder here so temps are staying in the 70's, there is no smell unless I'm messing around with the girls, vertical stretch seems to have slowed a bit and buds are starting to form...I am planning to continue to trim some more leaves away in a couple weeks or so as I feel only my top buds are getting a good amount of light. It was a mistake to try and cram so many plants in this little tent, in the future I will prob do 2, but I'll be happy with what I get... just hoping to get some qual buds.

Plants are lookin good considering all the heat induced stress they suffered! Be careful with the Tiger Bloom, stuf is HOT and will alter your PH!!! If you dont have PH UP or DOWN, buy some asap. A cheap PH test kit from walmart or the pet store will work fine.
As for all the trimming your doing: Your probably slowing your plants progress down more than is necessary. Leave the exposed (receiving the most light) leaves, and trim off under growth not reaching light. I would thin them out from top to bottom once then leave them alone for the rest of your grow. Everytime you cut a leaf off it shocks the plant, so repeatedly doing so will lower your yield.. Good luck w your harvest!

Here's a look at wk 3 (Day 21)

Gonna do some more trimming from the bottom up to clear things out a bit, if space looks like its going to be a problem I may use a second layer of netting to try and keep em down.

pics dont do them justice bc they were taken from my phone, starting to get some real pretty crystals. I'll try to get some pics using a decent camera soon.

Not sure if this is Nute Burn, burn from being too close to the HPS or some sort of deficiencey...

about 3 weeks into 12/12 and been using FF Big Bloom and epsom salt every feeding sense flipping lights as I didn't realize until recently that I needed to do every other feeding with just water, also last time I fed was first time I added FF Tiger Bloom. The other day I fed with just water...today I noticed that the closest buds to the the 400w HPS are turning yellow so I flushed with straight water and lots of it. I then used some string to tie the affected buds so that they are no longer directly underneath the light, also hoping this will give other buds the chance to catch up.

Any suggestions?

I trimmed a lot of the underbrush away today and some fan leaves through out my grow, which is when i noticed the yellowing, much happier now with the light penetration I am getting and air circulation. Buds are coming in real nice, hands got sticky while working with them today and smell is piney and sweat.

Problem was light burn, pulled light up a couple inches and flipped it around. Temps seem to be in a good range and I will monitor them a bit more closely from now on.

Buds are coming in real nice

Glad to see them under control, yup check that light every day, and if its too hot for your hand at bud tops its too close. Learn with your grow and better yourself and plants.

buds are absolutely coated in trichs and so so sweet...smell is amazing! Piney and crazy sweet smelling like sugar covered lemon candy. Can't wait to see how they turn out and praying that I dont ruin'em.

Getting something of an uneven canopy because of ineffective netting system, will do a SCROG next time with 1-2 plants...but I really wanna find a new place with some more space

My friend is bringing over his new camera soon for better picks

Not out of the woods yet apparently, temps got up to 90 at some point in the last 24 hrs. Not much more I can do at this point as I feel I have optimized my air circulation best I can other than doing some more trimming.
