Day 8 Flower -

One more week of stretch and then it’s cleanup time! Still chugging along and most are getting to the 2nd support net.

The increase in nitrogen feedings has helped the back right and has restored to a lush green and have been stretching beautifully!

Happy growing everyone!!

Day 9 Flower-

Watering day:
2 gallon RO
4 tsp Calmag
6 tsp Big Bloom
2 tsp Grow
2 tsp Bloom
1/2 tsp Open Sesame

Think I got the perfect amount of space for this stretch. Left sides almost at the support net and still have really good airflow and light penetration.

Happy growing everyone!

Ohhh bro you better believe I’m looking all over every 6 hours! I’ve learned my lesson 🤣 but yes you did warn me of the possibility and with them being fem there’s always that chance.

I am set to clean up ALL the lowers under the first net and will remove large fan leaves in the middle of the two nets for light exposure and air flow! So far so good on all and don’t see anything for alarm!!

Wife’s got an art expo on the 15th-17th and a musical festival she was invited to! She’s been working her ass off!

Day 12 Flower -

It’s day 19 since flip and only have a couple more days of stretch. I’ve gotta work tomorrow so I had to do my cleanup today!

@Trustfall , not a single nanner was found in any of the tops or lowers, all 4 healthy as can be!!

Removed a bunch of fan leaves and cleaned up all the lowers to get that light penetration on the bigger colas and to remove anything that was potential larf.

Now the cruise control begins!!

Wow. That's like a 30-40% haircut. Quite the photosynthesis energy reduction, as well as lost reserves. Don't think you got a little carried away? LOL

Nope, do it every grow! With 4 plants in a 3x3 things get very tight and suffocating. In the past, if I don’t do this, everything gets stressed and all the lowers will nanner out and pollinate when I’m growing fem seeds. As long as I feed properly and everything gets their proper light penetration, I’ve found no issues.

I’m on my very first grow and also in a 3x3. I think Schwifty is not wrong in his context. Will it reduce yields? Yeah probably, but there is only so much yield potential in a given space. That being said, but without a whole lot of experience to go off of, I imagine he could probably have gotten away with a bit less reduction.

I'm sure it will still be a success, but in the past, when I use to defoliate that much that early in flower, my yields were significantly smaller. Also, if you do run into a toxicity/deficiency dilemma, its going to be much harder to diagnose/recover.

I feel like defoliation is like flushing, some people do it some people don’t and it’s a hot debate. Check out my Frostette (Grape Crème Cake x Okie journal. I tested pretty heavy on defoliation in that grow, and it was one of my best.

All I can say is, you only have to have one seeded tent to think twice about prevention! If it’s overshadowed with no chance of seeing light, it’s going bye bye. With 4 plants in a 3x3 I’ve gotten it to a height where anything below first net is going bye bye. At that point, any large fan leaves in the middle of the two will get removed, but I’m not removing the bud site particularly so it will start produce buds and reduce larf. Just my process, but everyone has their own :)

Let’s see how they progress ✌️😉✌️ I think if I grew naturally without scrogging I’d probably not defoliate as much, but I’ve found it helps a lot with this method.

So what you’re saying is you feel that you are reducing hermie flowers that would otherwise potentially occur down low because of the heavy shade?
