The 2 that weren't def appear to have the advantage today imo

I could have let them veg another week or so. I have about 12" i could still raise the lights

Flushed with new water at about 40 ppm added to an inch of the old water that i don't pump empty which had my ppm sitting at 130 before adding nutrients. Added 150 ppms of nutrients.

Ppms at 280

Do you think defoliating has an effect on stretch? I thought I read that somewhere that it reduces stretch - which would make sense, as the lower growth sites are exposed to light and start to grow more I guess... also people mention bigger 'mids' - which would also mean that some of the growth from the tops is being redistributed lower down the plant....

I'm also asking as I'm wondering if defoliating might help control the stretch on sativas...

Personally i think this plant is going to do whatever it wants. We can think whatever we want or wish for.

Its in the gene's. This mother i used for this trial didnt have as much stretch as the other 3 seeds out of the package of 15
What strain/breeder

LOL at 8-12 wks. Hard to be wrong about that. They sure stretch a lot. I would have to do zero veg clones to make it work.
Actually i think 12 weeks would have done them good.

This particular mom of the 4 seeds planted has the nicest "nose" to me doing the smell test after a month cure

I have 4 plants dried on a 4 tier net and then each plant stored in its own cvaults/onyx container.
