28 days to do and the plant is already starting to eat the fan leaves should be addressed with some additional nitrogen. All 3 forms have advantages and disadvantages. Any of the 3 will keep the plant form eating itself too soon. So I would advise using either some additional Nitrogen or taking away a portion of the bloom nutrients and replacing with veg nutrients. New grower or old grower, the soon one learns to read the plant the better the results.
Op cut out veg early because of hieght. Anamonical N could. make it stretch more and delay ripening imo. Besides, I thought that strain was supposed to be 8 weeks, that's only 21 days left.

Grow guides call it an 8 to 9 week strain, Adding a small amount of N when the plant is taking N from itself will not result in the plant growing, it will just keep the plant from eating the fan leaves too fast.

Agree with adding some N. Could also check PH of the media. If its creeping up that will lower N availability and feeding some ammonium based will kinda be like a 2 prong approach as ammonium nitrogen will lower the media PH because the plants release h+ ions in the process they use to consume it making N more available. Last couple weeks I try to raise the PH in the media to reduce N uptake.

I was hoping I would yield around 8 ounces in my tent which is a little over 6 sqft. so it will be close
I personally believe you will hit your target. You have a nice canopy going. Defoliating with scrog is a must though. Keep it up and trust your guts.

Day 35 of flower. I'm pretty sure this is from lack of nitrogen in the first photo. Should I continue with the scheduled feedings? Fox farms says to keep feeding the whole time. I read about starting to flush the plants at week 6. This would be my last feeding if I started flushing at week 6

Honestly, I don't see a reason to flush. You're not feeding full dose of FF anyway and if you alternate watering and nutes and have a nice wet dry cycle (3 days) you should be fine. I never flush as long the plant looks good.

I was thinking 8 weeks myself but I read more and ILGM days say 8-9 weeks. The plants were 7 weeks or so from sprout when I flipped to 12. I have defoliated these 2 plants a lot of times. They seem to enjoy it. I gave them more nitrogen today. I used a gallon of water and used a 1/4 of each in the pictures. Each plant got 1/2 gallon of the mix. I also removed a lot of leaves today.

I'm noticing that the plants have slightly different buds. First pic is the right plant second is left. The left plant is a lot more frosty

The cheap Chinese soil probe is reading a little bit over 6. I haven't flushed at all. I thought it was best to stop fertilizing the plants 2 weeks from harvest to use up nutrients that are stored in the plants. That's what I ment by flushing.

it's going 42 into flower as of today. I'm not sure if adding the extra N work but it doesn't seem to have caused any harm. I figure 2-3 weeks will be time to harvest. Under my 40x loop it's still clear.

These buds are so sticky and smell so amazing. But the smell does not seem to be very strong
If you hit them with UV I bet they would smell stronger.

Just in case you are interested. I know I have brought this up before. This is what I use and I notice the smell difference after one day of four hours of use. Just started them now in my thread and I am documenting the way the trichs look. I know you said heat was a factor before and I don't wanna be annoying. Just throwing it out there.

I just bought one for my tortoise today🤣.I plan on trying that in my next grow in a bigger tent with a portable ac hooked up to it. That'll help with heat and humidity. kill 2 birds with one stone.

I would use this thread as a resource and go with your gut....then add another 3 days minimum and repeat until you are just sure it's ready. The optimal harvest window is at least 10 days really. If you wait and watch, they will kind of tell you when they are done and you will just kind of know in my experience. Granted I am consistently high while tending to my garden so maybe that influences my certainty on that judgement lol.
