And is there a point where i should stop purnkng fan leaves
you probably wont need to bend the colas down cuz you flipped them early enough and they will stay relatively short and stocky. The trellis netting should do a nice job holding your colas upright. As for the fan leaves you should continue to slowly pluck them off to thin out the canopy. You have a ways to go once you are deeper into flower you will stop. Its a feel thing after you have done it a few times you just know roughly when the time is to cut back on the defoliating. I basically gotta be looking at the plant its hard to explain. Remember your main goal in defoliating is to open up the canopy and allow more light to penetrate deeper down. Stand above the plants and look directly down on top of them from a birds eye view. This makes it easier to see remember the light is coming down from directly above so use that angle. Then you want to first focus on the bud sites. Every cola top with hairs starting to form needs to be open exposed to the light. Sometimes leaves will grow over the top of flowers and block them. These are the leaves you want to focus on either plucking or tucking. keep slowly working it until you stand over top looking down and see a bunch of those white hairy tops. Expose as many of them to the open light as you can. Once this has been achieved then you can focus on thinning out some of the leaves on the sides of the shoots. In other words work your way down the canopy and pluck the sides of the branches after the tops have been exposed this will allow for more airflow and light deeper into the canopy.

i can bring a garden hose inside and flush them out good this time

so does going organic mean i have to sacrifice on my yields ?
For me it does. I'm no expert, just personal meds. The plants I grew organic HF organic amendments took about a week-10 days longer. Yield was about the same until I factor in the extra time.

Yes bro much better. Immediately I could tell that you upped your nutrient dosages because the color is darkening up and getting that beautiful darker green. They are really starting to look good now you keep this up and this grow is gonna come out stellar.

Probably not you should be good only need to bend down if you are encountering height restrictions or if one strain is way taller than the rest and you want to even the canopy. If one plant is a bit taller its fine. If I were you I would just pull the gold off of the coke bottle riser. That should drop her a handful of inches and put it closer to the rest of your GDP canopy.

Hmmm ok I guess this does make sense if you factor in time. Cuz theoretically if it takes more time to finish then that is time you could be starting another cycle and creating more flower. I personally never noticed any huge difference in time going from Organic to Non-Organic however I always have lots of different cuts and strains running both indoors and out therefore with all these variables it makes it very hard to notice. Different strains will finish at different times. To really test this it would be interesting to do a controlled study and truly see if there is a difference. I believe you entirely Im just wondering if the organic/non-organic feeds would effect the grow times of certain strains differently than others.

Looking great my man you are really knocking this one out the park so far. That GDP especially that last pic is beautiful got that dark green leaf color with the red/purple leaf stems thats the bomb your really gonna like this strain. The stink factor is about to turn up big time in your tent when I ran that strain outdoors a few phenos really had the good skunky smell. I was just about to tell you this is the time you can start to crank up your light intensity. If your mars doesn't have a dimmer than you can drop it to increase the light intensity on the canopy. You already did it perfect 👍. My new HLG light has the dimmer Im super spoiled now as my flower carries on every single day I just ever so slightly turn up the dimmer. As little as I can turn the dial ever so slightly. So after weeks of tiny intervals the dial is eventually maxed out and the last few weeks of flower Im full blast. You don't have to have a dial it just makes it easier.

Honestly I don't know or remember since its been about 3 years since I ran it. I stopped looking at the calendars a long time ago cuz between my indoor and outdoor plants I can have 5 or 6 strains going at a time maybe even more and they are all different. I just know when they are done by looking at them now the individual plant will let you know when its ready you just look at the bud structure and the color of the hairs and the trichomes.
