I like to do all the branch cutting (lollipop) before I flip to flower. I will take off a few lower side branches that were 1" at time of flip and are now little 4" twigs with minimal light penetration. I'll also do some defoliation while in flower, but everything I do, I try and have it done by the 3rd week / before the stretch phase finishes.

I would do it sooner than later, to answer your question ;)
Big agree, I hate stressing them anytime after stretching is over.

I’m pretty sure, my influx was never over 900 and outflux around 1100-1200 once it was that high was about time for recharge/Tribus so that dropped it back into the 900 range. I have a DJ Flo outside on the same schedule and did great no problems or burning. I noticed the leaves curling up and burning the edges around week 4 and after adding in the MOAB it helped a bit but the K Deficiency was already to late.

What’s the MOAB?

I tried a sample the shop gave me. While I think it did help correct a minor deficiency, I'm not sure that I saw a significant yield increase. I didn't do any harm, that seems to be true.
I was watching a video from Dr. Bruce Bugbee and he said 20-10-20? Idk I’m still not quite understanding
Figure about 5-6 days left of flush then chop.
YAAAAAAAAHOOOO those are fucking beauties right there! What size light are you running over sq ft canopy? Looks like ur in a 10 gal pot too with how big she is?

still can’t find a good feed lol. My next run I’m trying promix hp with roots organic nutes. Should I go dry or liquid? I like dry but idk if it’s as effective or not as liquid nutes.

Dry... liquid you are just paying for dry diluted in water... just my opinion. Both work.
Word. I appreciate that. I already use dry amendments for conditioner in my super soil but I think I wanna run pro mix hp or just do a 60% Vermiculite- 40% Peat medium only with mykos, wetting agent, and the dolomite (which ever stabilizes the soil ph and controls drift) with the Roots Organic Line. So I’ll use the dry line like I planned!

I run about 2-1-3 in veg but 20-10-20 is good. Want N to K of about 1-1 or 1-1.5 ish.
See when people say that tho.... your total feed is 2-1-3? So if I found 1 product with 2-1-3 that’s all I’d use for veg? What about additives like silica, liquid karma, full power? Or would the 2-1-3 with everything added equal 20-10-20?

Depends what else they contain. Usually silica is added... sometimes cal mag or others.

My advice is keep it simple and don't go adding a bunch of stuff that throws ratios out because of claims on a bottle.

A simple grow will get you more in the long run especially if you don't fully understand nutrient ratios and interactions

I prefer liquid. Dry amendments for me when they are used as a top dressing, tend to eventually form a crust (hydrophobic layer) on the soil. I don't want that. Aquaman does make a good point, dry ingredients are much cheaper to ship due to weight. I only find myself needing a new bottle every so often, so the $15-25 for it doesn't bother me much for the amount of time I'll get out of it.

Absolutely I think there is an ease to liquid also. Still find that if ya mix it into the media you get the crust? Im a synthetic guy so I can say as I have experience with that.

How about the terp tea bubbled and fed as a tea?
