This is my first grow in coco. It was like a sprint race. Every day I'd come in to visible change. Every day I was training, cutting, measuring moisture, adjusting water flow, frequency and volume. Then training into trellis net, and defoliate, defoliate, defoliate. (And I'm one who barely defoliates). At 4 weeks I decided the plants needed another week to veg completely to the sides of the tent - they did not. Once flower stretch started, I was busier than every trying to keep distance to the light. Ended up pulling all the plants during flower and replacing the tent, and trying to re-weave the tops back through the net.^ This is true, the only time I've ever noticed big changes seemingly overnight is the stretch before flower and right towards the end of flower, when the nights are getting colder, they fatten up like crazy and really push those trichomes... I imagine watching them flower indoors is kind of like watching paint dry lol.
And then .... crickets. My plants are growing, but without my help other than filling the reservoir. It went from painting the room for 8 weeks to watching it dry the past 2 or so. Makes me feel like I should be doing something.
