We just got back from our honeymoon in Jamaica for 7 days. I was in panic mode knowing nobody could water my plants while I was gone. So I took suggestions here and turned my Mars Hydro TSL 2000 down to 50% and turned my Bloomspect 1200 Watt blurple lights completly off. Gave a heavy watering and my last nutrient feeding (my heaviest dosages yet).
I came back to some fatter Buds, a little bit of nutrient burn on the tips but overall stoked that my plants were still kicking lol.
I'm attaching my grow journal to see if anyone sees anything I may have done too little or too much of.
Under the microscope it looks like I'm at about 25 percent cloudy trichomes. My question is should I just cut nutes out Completly and just do 6 to 6.4 ph only water from here on out to flush? Generally speaking with 25 percent trichomes being cloudy, rough estimate as to when they are they typically ready to harvest around this point. I realize my plants are all different sizes. I think some is due to my LST techniques I used, the fact I have a mutant that was always stunted (but has the nicest buds) and the fact I just upgraded to the Mars Hydro 2000. Also should I run both lights even though I can't get my Temps below 85 Fahrenheit when I do vs 78 to 80 when just running Mars Hydro? Should I drop my light schedule down or increase it to 22 on 2 off. I've had it at 20 on 4 off. Sorry for all the questions but I'm trying to maximize my yields the best I can as a brand new grower.
Thanks again guys and gals

I do the same. I am only leaving the big ones on the outside closest to the tents walls for purpose of getting more light through the plant. Main focus has been getting good airflow and not blocking any potential Buds. I cut off a small handful of popcorn Buds from tye bottom as I have read it's a good thing to do. I'm always reading and youtubing shit about growing. I have a feeling I'm gonna end up with a bad ass plant I will never be able to replicate or be a total loss from all the messing around I find myself doing lol
