This is false and true. Nutrients are moved up and down the plant via the phloem and xylem. The sucrose is taken from the leaves by the process of translocation and moved throughout the plant(root tips,stem tips, fruits, repairing tissue) via the xylem. These two plant structures are the main components of translocation . So in laments the energy garnered from the sun,photosynthesis’d into sucrose(sugars) in leaves are moved by the phloem to the xylem then delivered to the plants organs(roots,fruit ext.) as needed.the reason you are having a heavy yield is because of the hollow branches o.k. here it goes the water and nutrients are carried up the stem from the medium the more hollow they are the more food and water gets to the tips of plants also outdoor plants seem to not be as hollow as indoor that could also be why indoor plants are more thc laden and also you will notice that the more air movement in a grow room the less hollow the stems and thats do to plant cellulose strengthening the stem so it can hold the weight of the buds it is producing
Probally spring tails, and they are no big deal.What kinda lil tiny white pest “I tend to find in wet soil “ and eats roots and damages plants? I’m in southeast us.. I’ve seen them 3 years straight. They’re too small and fast to take a picture of so I can identity.. They always try to hide when digging thru soil. Had a couple last year that got destroyed by them little thanks, I always associated my hollow/weak branches/stems with them?
