Naw man you still have a decent amount of white/green pistils. Generally it’s when they all turn brown you harvest

I’m doing 15ml per 3.5L every water/feed, about every 3 days give/take.

Lights touching the roof. It’s at 10” to canopy most places. (Should be 14.75”)

Might be paranoid but feel the buds are not as swollen and pistils are turning brown early. Week 5 day 33 of flower.
Week 5......you're half way home....I'm not seeing any of mine get close to finish until 10 weeks,,,,,they'll start to put on girth in another week or 2....Looking great by the way awesome scrog.

Cool. Just worried after all the little things that have gone wrong. Never expected to run out of space in a 6’ tent and a SCROG! 😂🌱

If the buds are okay I’ll try to look away and leave it alone. Really is the hardest thing for me to do! 😆

Guess I can abuse the clones some more, or bug the dog. 🐶🎾

Apparently I can’t keep out of the tent. 😩

Lots more purple. Looks like light burn here or there but could also be patches turning purple.

Finally broke down and rearranged the grow room/guest room. Made room for my backup tent. (I have duplicate equipment except for the HVAC pretty much. In case of fail.)

So now I’m just trying to slide the frame into the tent on my own. Sunny boy is at work and wifey is sleeping. Dog just keeps checking progress then goes back to bed.

It’s together and it fits. Lights & stuff later. Just wanted to make sure I had a better drying/curing chamber this time round.

Top is getting light stress.

Start of week 6 today. Do I ride it out or turn down the light? 🎲🎲

Things are looking light stressed up top and at the back where it’s closest. Week 6 Flower day 39.

Day 43 for me. We’re near the same point. These are under t5s and I worry there is not enough light.
to your point, if you have the ability why not turn them down a little. At this point though you are arguing only 1-2% THC loss on the final product. Or keep the lights full blast and have some cool light green neon Ish bud at the finish.

First grow with this light. Only does 0%-25%-50%-75%-100%. Not sure if it’s better to leave it or change it at this point. I’m sure 85% would be perfect.

Lots of amber from the stress but only flower day 39, week 6. To many clear still.

Last grow I had one older girl go black head to foot. Most just do the top closest to the LEDs.

Nice plant(s). 🌳👍 No stress there.

Zen, what variety do you have here? I understand that your light might seem too close, or too powerful, I don’t know, but maybe it's a more delicate variety so it could use less intensity but more time? Whereas Greenjourney's variety is good with whatever that intensity is? Maybe just dial it down to 75% or whatever is the next lowest and let it have the next however many weeks it wants and they'll get more flower packed on. Maybe they won't lose anything, but thrive even more.....They look great, it doesn't seem like there's anything else, you're doing great......and dig your dog... ;)

I honestly don’t know. I can say it’s a hybrid because some seeds are more Indica while others, like this one, are more Sativa.

Maybe?🤷‍♂️ I’ve only popped about a dozen of these. (Only one male so far.)
Maybe just dial it down to 75% or whatever is the next lowest and let it have the next however many weeks it wants and they'll get more flower packed on.
I have just as many, if not more, buds just below the top canopy. If I dial it back won’t they suffer?

I’ve been thinking about pulling down some of the branches from below and soft wire them if I can. Not a tuck so much as hunker down? We’ll see after watering tonight.

Maybe they won't lose anything, but thrive even more.....They look great, it doesn't seem like there's anything else, you're doing great....
Thanks, and I hope so. Running low on stock. Gave to much away. 😱

..and dig your dog... ;)
Willow, she’s not a dog, she’s an alien that likes eating newly grown cannabis shoots! 🐶🌱🌿😆

I don't think they'll suffer......if you think the light distance and/or intensity is holding them back a bit, maybe try dialing down just one notch but letting time do the work. If they do have more sativa in them, if they're a longer flowering variety, then time might be what they need more than intensity. I do like the idea of bending/tucking too, whatever gives you that extra distance.......you'll know, they're your plants..... ;). Whenever you were thinking of harvesting, maybe less intensity but another 2 weeks or so would be what they'd like.

More than half? of the hairs have turned.......do you think that's from maturity, or from light intensity/closeness? That's an interesting call. On one hand, they look like they're kind of maturing. On the other hand, less than 40 days of flowering? That's what I find interesting here. I assume you're doing 12/12?

By the way, they do look good, it's not like this is about something "wrong". Not every variety is meant to have super large buds. Quality is what matters most, and for this variety they might be just perfect. It's your call on the light intensity/distance thing and it's the 6 weeks so far vs more time thing that's at play for you.......

Dig your alien. :) I'm a cat guy, but I love dogs. Until a couple of years ago, I've always lived in an apartment in New York City......not as easy to have a dog. Now I want both. We've had 4 cats since we moved in together in '86, and I'm sure you know......it's heartbreaking.....but if you don't have the heartbreak you don't get the love. We lost our last cat 2 years ago. It was really tough. They all were. These are the first years we haven't had any. Our son wants a dog......I think both would be great. I've told him that dogs require more committment and attention. He knows niws that....
