I'm rocking two 8 bar 840w from parfactworks... liking them so-far
Mine aren't as nice as yours. I actually bought them initially to go in a 36"x20"x63" tent. They were a bit too much in there... A bit too hot, only because it's so tight in there, and the light is narrow but they're great in that laundry room. The plants seem to like them. I didn't realize when I started I was going to have more than 1 grow area. The tent was going to be it... Now I want a bigger apt. with 8 bar 840 w lights!!!!

Flowers are 35 days old... I think this is the halfway mark... They are filling in nicely and they are sticky! I've had lots of yellowing of fan leaves which I find concerning... But I don't want to interrupt. I mean, I guess it doesn't look bad... Maybe I don't know if I should be worried or grateful she's making the trim job easier

I also have these ladies getting ready to flower. I put them on 12/12 Mon. April 4. On the left is a rainbow haze and on the right is a godfather og. They are both in 7 gallons of soil. The haze will have only 4 colas. The GFOG will have 8... They've already been topped appropriately. Let's see what happens

I also have this lovely slender young lady. She is a godfather og as well. She is in 3 gallons of soil and will only have 2 colas. I put her on a 12/12 schedule when she was only 3 weeks old. 19 days later she has just showed her pistils. Her sister, on the right in the tent, is only 5 days older... Big size discrepancy. In the tent her stalk is 3-4 times the thickness of this young ladies... Let's see what we get!!!

Im just going to leave this here as my 2 cents lol. Im not the one in the video but its a source I respect and his results speak for themselves. In my personal opinion, all those additives and other crap are unnecessary. All you need is a balanced 20-10-20 nutrient line with a bit of extra phosphorus during flower and youre golden. Everything after that is based on your environment. Temp, vpd, airflow, lighting etc. Feeding plants is easy and doesnt require super complex mixtures and additives to get right. Whats not easy at times is is controlling your environment. You get that down and it wont really matter what medium or nutrients you use, so long as its a balanced nutrient.

Great video. I'm just curious because in the video he said he keeps Veg 85 degrees and I believe he said like 75% humidity! That's a whole lot more than what I have seen just watching YouTube videos. Do you think this would be the same for a simple small grow with good soil and not feeding many nutrients during veg like I am doing? I'm keeping a constant 74-75 degrees and 58-61 humidity. Should I up it during my veg? I'm only about 3 weeks or so in.

I didn't watch the video personally. I keep my thermostat at 68 degrees. Because of lights, around my plants, it's typically 75-80 degrees. Humidity is always less than 50%. I grow in a closet and in my laundry room. My plants all seem healthy, I think. Maybe some strains would like that kind of humidity... I don't know.

Topping once is usually all you need to make a big bush and usually increase your yield. After my initial topping any further topping is merely to control height. Most important thing is dont overdo it and shock the plant. In the final week or 2 chop off 2 or 3 tester branches to piss her off one last time. essentially the same as "stalk splitting" but you get some early smoke out of the deal.

She was topped 5 times(32 colas) and is 27" tall. I'm pretty pleased... She's prob got 2-3 weeks left. Ill prob harvest a bud or 2 early but I'm not trying to shock her... I am going to give her some barley extract and monosilicic acid. I'm hoping to pull 8 oz plus... I've gotten 8oz off a plant before... I'm thinking she might be there

chop at least 1 or 2 branches. Watch her rage forth. mid to late flower they like just a little bit of roughing up.
