So In the two pictures below, same plant (S'98 "PRE' 98 BUBBA x S.A.G.E") first picture is the plant before harvest. It's a beautiful plant, buds are nice but never really stacked that nicely. Plant is at 11 weeks of flower and just getting a couple amber trich's. So I harvested the plant, and strung it up, then started some trimming of the fan leaves. And that's when I noticed it, a huge cluster of Bud in the intersection of the lower branches. Apparently I need glasses, the buds were thick as hell and had just developing the hairs. If I had to guess, they looked like the 6th week of flower, 4 weeks behind the rest of the plant. Holy Cow, I'm willing to bet there is at least a 1/2 ounce of bud there. So, I always Lolly pop but the plants were short and I assumed there was enough light getting all the way through. If I would have taken the time to clean up the lower section of the plant, the upper section would have likely stacked better and would have matured much sooner.

My hypothesis is that the lower portion of the plant was stealing all the energy and holding the rest of the plant back. It's a 8-10 week flowering plant at 11 weeks and probably could have went another week before harvest. So, moral of the story is, you get out of your garden what you put in. I got lazy this grow and didn't do all the things I should have and paid for it in the end.

Lesson Learned.

Those single finger leaves at top mean she revegged. You change the light or have a leak?

that’s a pretty shinny green plant for the end of flowering?
Yeah, your right. I just got tired of waiting on her, 6 weeks of Veg, 11 Weeks of Flower. I still have other plants in the tent that still have some clear trichomes yet. Everything went wrong this time, a couple of the plants hermied on me (see pic). This is the second time I tried flood and drain, First time was a pretty good success, this time., not so much.
Hermie


I have another batch of seedlings right behind this grow. Taking a different route this time, back to organics.

Thanks,

Wow, that great info, I didn't know that. You know, This is my first year using LED (Mars Hydro TSW2000), HPS before that, but I doubt that could be it. What's different is I am using Smart plugs to control my lights and I have had other smart plugs that did not turn off when they were supposed to. I wonder if that has happened to me with my tent lights? Prior to that I just used the Hydrofarm Digital Timer, worked flawlessly. You have me thinking hard about this now. As far as light leaks go, with all the lights off in the basement, I see a couple pin holes with light on the tent walls. Nothing major, literally just pin holes. I'll throw some tape on those.

Thanks for your feedback, I'll tighten some things up here. reveg never crossed my mind.

You dont have to trim off anything if you train the plants to stay in the lights effective footprint and depth. My garden gets bent and trained to 30” over the pot max. And they flower nice down to the bottom branches.

I have a question here I don't know if anybody is even going to get this but I'll ask it anyway right – – is there a problem with a green Mossy organic growing on my, root riot grow cubes that are practically almost 100% dry but it's growing anyway, - - - it's alive
