Ask someone who has never grown cannabis before to start growing... they are not gonna know about topping techniques defoliation techniques... any plant training at all... topping is a step above from doing no training to a plant
I don't know shit about none of that. I just decided to figure this out. Me and my woman smoke like 400 bucks in green every pay day. I thought it would be easier to grow. Found seeds in the tobacco store where I bought my chew. Didn't think about lights humidifiers air flow medium nothing. I bought seeds and than found out what I needed. Not the best way to do things. I'm a hands on learner if you can show me what to do I can get fairly good at things quickly. I thought how hard can it be. I think the most valuable thing I've done so far is find out how to use this site. I'm watching a lot of threads and want to read everything. I'm rethinking my tactics watching all the masters and still trying to think I can get by with little to no money spent. I'm seeing what works and know I got to get the stuff I didn't want to have to get. I'm figuring out how to water still. The thing that seems so simple is what's been the hardest thing to do right. I was watering every 7 8 days. I thought I had a grasp on it and think I overwatered my plants again. So I think I'm gonna try 10 days or longer between watering. I understand what people have said works for them and think I am applying the methods right but my plants still struggle. 3 weeks old today and the bottom leaves are turning yellow. I know I watered to much and had my 100 watt phlizon light right at 12 inches where the manual said to have it for veg. Had it at 60 percent like it said and my little light was stronger than I thought. I moved it back to 24 inches and turned it down to 40 percent. There still getting 200 on the photone app. I was frying them and thought I had my shit set right because the manual said to keep light 12inches from the plant the whole life just adjust the dimmer. I don't think phlizon knows how to use there lights. They look better now that the light is farther away.

So that's everybody for their "specs"... I never really bothered to read the specs🤣... I only have 6 foot high ceilings in my basement... so I do reverse of things... my light stays at ceiling height... I'll just adjust my dimmer as they get taller in veg down... when in flower I'll simply raise dimmer....

Your plants look like they are lacking nitrogen...calmag... coupled with light burn....

Growing in general IS EXPENSIVE!!!

my grow setups add about 150-400 bucks on my power bill depending on seasons... my nutrients... every 4 or 5 grows I reinvest about 600 bucks in nutes....

My fd6500 was 350
My medicgrow was 650

Cheap grows bring cheap results... not saying to get high end equipment... but I just go for the middle of the run stuff

I went in thinking I'd get away with being as cheap as possible. Since then I've upgraded pretty much everything I bought or planned on buying. Really don't want to waste months of work on something that doesn't get the results I want.

Been sick again😮‍💨😑 I can't stand the "school germs"🤣🤣🤣

Plants are starting to look like me sickly but awesome at same time🤣🤣🤣 looking like Xmas harvest next week....

Again doing trellis last minute is what caused my issues....

As for this method.... it works great... I feel like yields remain the same... im gonna keep sticking with this new method...shaves off lots of veg time with the less toppings for same amount of cola sites

I'm going to flush my plants on Friday with ice water, but also never did that before, hope the color comes out more.

just tried it on two 7g hazes recently, I think it might have brought out more color. I've grown that strain for a while and they def were more colorful.
after trimming the color was almost negligible though.

The cold is definitely a major factor in bringing out those anthocyanins. On top of the ice try bringing your night temps down even more.

There is also some science on more intense/direct lighting helps. It's hard to really tell though. Might just be that a lot of those purple strains are bright light lovers (purple haze etc)

Also, some other anthocyanin producing plants have their colors affected by PH. Neutral waters bring the purps, alkaline more green/yellow, acidic conditions make em red.

I think you're doing good work jkash. More people need to test it out and publish their findings

Moments b4 and during lights on for her last time... I tried to get microscope pics but need to get a microphone boom stand for more clear shots.... right now I just take a recording and try to spot blurry amber heads 🤣🤣🤣

As for cold water flush I did not see much of a change in gdp... but everything may not picture perfect with emergency trellis last minute but these buds look like candy!!!
