you can always cut the net out and use bamboo stakes. Your light needs to increase 2x. But, before you do that, make sure they are thriving. Your feed regime will not be adequate, you have a lot of micros in seaweed and molasses but is unbalanced in the major nutes. Unless you have a field where you can improve the soil year on year with organic inputs and add sustainability, it is not the way to go.Here's an update from day 40. I added a SCROG net although it hasn't made much difference considering the shape and size of my plants. It has opened up some of the bud sites that weren't getting enough light though. My first experience with using one of these nets hasn't been great and I find that they make maintenance of your plants really awkward (attaching the carbon filter was a nightmare) so I doubt I'll use one again and in future will try the SOG method instead. I gave them approximately 4 litres of water each three days ago with 7ml of CalMag, 12ml of liquid seaweed and 30 ml of molasses. They'll probably need feeding again tomorrow. I lowered the light a little and they're all getting in the region of 450 PPFD. There seems to have been minimal growth in the last week, surely they should be bigger than this at this stage? I can't work out what the problem is. Does anybody have any ideas?
A plant can grow in many types of soil because it needs a limited amount of certain nutes. Just because you add organic inputs to a batch of media will not make your bud smell better in the end. Of course you can manipulate a plant with nutrient inputs but generally, the plants wants certain nutrients at certain stages along with all the other inputs of environment: light, temp., moisture, etc.
