if the light is not intensive at the back than leave it be. However, you can do a super cropping which will bend the branch but won't break it. this is just to help those long branches that are under the heat of the light. If you have a smart phone you can download a ppfd app. for iphone i use photone. not my app or an sponsor. These things aren't accurate but it gives an idea of what the numbers are at, but again with the setting you have at 18" with 90% it could be fine and it could be that the picture is just taken with too much light.

The pictures in the dark show the leaves perfectly and you have a happy plant but then the flowers are all frost white 😂

Always write down the ec level of feed & ph that goes in TOGETHER with the ec level and ph of the RUNOFF water. You must do this throughout the whole grow whenever you feed the girl (s).

This will help u to always rule out any nutrient deficiencies or to also make sure ur on track. As for your environment i like 75F in the flowering stage and i drop my humidity lower and lower every week. (Week 8/9 iam sitting on 30h) and T lowered to 65f from week 8 onwards. Your plants look good man.. Just test that runoff water as soon as u give her that next drink to rule anything out and to see if any specific nutrients are being “locked out”.. common culprits are normally Phosphorus/calcium/magnesium and molybdenum 👍🏽. The PH runoff test will let u know whats up 😊..

I know this is a no no but I actually don’t have an EC pen yet. I’m still adding to my collection of tools. Do you think I still should test ph run off if I have a soil ph pen? Last time I checked which was about 4 days ago the coco ph was at 6.1. Any recommendations on a good EC pen for about 50-100 bucks? Currently RH average is about 40-50%. Thanks for the reply and helpful information! I appreciate it and everyone!!!

blue lab ph pen are about 120 dollars or get a complete package for 250 or so.
if that is out of the budget then you can grab any cheap once from amazon. They just don't last long if its not taken care for.

I have a soil ph and normal ph pen from blue lab, really love it. I bought a cheapo Ec pen from Amazon and it came out of the box not working lol really ticked me off. I guess I’ll just have to bite the bullet and get a blue lab one.

I’ve went through my nutrient line to see if there’s a reason it’s looking greener and started shining. Apparently on my bloom A the npk value is 4-0-5 and I did start bumping up nutes beginning week 3. Is it normal to still be giving nitrogen at this point of the game?

Athena blended, I was going with the “light” feeding regime until start of flower week 3 then I started on “normal”. Ya just noticed the Bloom A on the regime npk is 4-0-5. It could be because I’m not experienced but is that nitrogen value normal at this stage of bloom?

Hey my G, you 100% need an EC / PPM probe. Myself personality would never start a project without it.. it takes all the guess work out and solves 80% of the problems out 4 u if u ever started having a nutrient deficiency occur. I bought a blue lab combo meter. At first i could not afford it so i used an interest free credit card which allowed me to pay it off over 6 months. 😁

Also if you can 4 future invest in a dehumidifier for that flower cycle.. you will be amazed by what it does to the buds when u drop that humidity 👌🏽.
