Looks like the leaves closest to the lights are tacoing. No way to raise the light?

Well done on the care and feeding but next time you may want to do a true scrog to keep everything at a predetermined level so that you don't have high light issues.
Unfortunately, I did a Scrog but 4/6 plants Hermed on me and I had to cut the Scrog out. By that time I couldn’t bend the branches back down as they had gotten to firm. Light is as high up in the tent as it can go. I have moved the plants out from underneath it to try to reduce some PAR. It’s definitely stunted the growth on those colas

I had the same thing happen to me on my first scrog but I just unwound the branches from the net and culled the males. Before I did that I took my foliar sprayer and sprayed down the tent and plants with water so that any pollen that accidentally got released when I was culling them got inactivated.

Once I removed the males I went ahead and repositioned the females and spread the branches under the net so that I got as much net coverage as I could.

One thing you can do for this grow is to just bend over the branches that are too close to the light.

I’ve been using my 2x4 seedling mat as a heater inside my tent, last night temps were in the teens and my tent never dropped below 60, so I think it’s a more efficient option than the space heater I’ve been using for an additional 2-3 degrees. 1500 watts vs 120

Day 52 of flower

Closing in on week 8, the flush and tea has really helped get them back on track. Fed yesterday with GO Bloom and earth juice micro blast, microbes enzymes and molasses. This will be the last feeding from here on out. Will just be using microbes molasses enzymes and terpene queen. Hoping to see some of the lower buds get more dense in this final 2ish weeks

Day 57 from flip,

I’ve been scoping daily for the past 4 days and the amber is starting to show up a bit more everyday, at this rate I’m thinking Monday may be chop day but if it’s not where I want (30% amber) I’ll wait. watered today with ph’d water only, and will continue that until harvest day. They’ve really gotten covered in trichomes the past week or so, which leads me to believe it is white widow like I had originally thought. It has an incredible smell that I can’t get enough of, unfortunately I’m terrible at smell descriptions so I’m just gonna leave it alone. Not the yield I was hoping for but with all the set backs I’ve had I feel like it’s not going to be horrible and really happy I’m getting something when 45 days ago I thought it was gonna be zero.

Check the photos and let me know if you think my guesstimate on harvest time is about right. They aren’t the best, camera through the loupe and not the steadiest hands.

Day 66 from flip

Harvest day… I wanted to take them to 70 but one plant was a little further along and I didn’t want to take it too far. Also starting a new grow and will need the tent in a few days. Yield won’t be great but the smell is absolutely incredible and covered in milky white trichomes. All the pistils have turned orange, not seeing many white hairs only in the lower larf buds. I see why you should clean the lowers up more, glad I learned the reason, now I’ll put it into practice going forward. now I can use that for edibles/bubble hash.

I hooked my @INKBIRD temp and humidity controller up to my humidifier, set it and it works great. Humidity is hanging around 60% temp is hovering at 65 should be a good long dry. With the humidity controller I won’t have to keep checking if my humidifier is empty, should last a day or more, great investment. I trimmed all the large fan leaves off and left the sugar leaves, cut the stalk and hung whole in the tent on hangers.

The lighting in the room is not good so the final photos are trash.

Now we wait
