lower budding sites and branches stretch up to try to break the canopy but rarely if ever receive enough light to produce any product above a c- grade of product. The buds are airy and premature on strains that bush out and have multiple top colas. Why is this? Because the solar panels, ie; Leaves, can't get enough light.
Thats why the knowledgeable grower will cut away the lower 1/3 of their plants upon switching the light cycle. This negates the bottom branches that would've produced
I am keeping a log book on every single thing I do with the plants or any problems or success's for future crops I can see how the strain has acted and keep a master control for self breeding experiment.
As I am at the 30 day mark I figured I have started into the safe vegging stages of my seeds and since things will start happening fast.. I better get down what I have so far.
