    Pavlin will probably know more but from my understanding growing weed there is illegal. They only tolerated smoking at smoke shops. But the laws for that have changed in 3 provinces. Tourists can no longer smoke or buy weed in coffee shops. And next year tourists wont be able to buy it anywhere in the Netherlands. For now its just 3 provenances. They are even making things hard for Netherland residents.

    This is not true. You can buy it only people with a map showing that residents of the Netherlands. Easy there would be loopholes :) This makes for tourists ... what senses?

    well for one you have algae growth completely covering the top of your rockwool cubes.....they make covers for that......or you could just get black and white poly and cut squares and make a slit....black side down. my uneducated guess is mold or mildew damage.

    It is not advisable to remove any leaf from the plant. When she does not need them anymore she kills them off herself. Turn up the lights or tuck these "shade" leaves under or behind another branch.

    Yes you can. The thought that you shouldn't because it will harm the plant is a very old growers myth from books from the 1970's and 80's. We've been doing it constantly for around 10 years with our grows. Our grows are large medical commercial ones though and they are done in tight SOG's mostly but some are also large trees as well. Removing some of the shade leaves will give you more light and air flow to your flowers. This will help them fill out, tighten up, mature quicker, and sugar up more.

    When I get around to it I will post up some pics of some before and after pics of how heavily we thin out our plants leaves. You need some leaves on your plants to absorb light and co2 and to help in efficient transpiration. There are stomata's on the undersides of the leaves that look like little mouths under a microscope. These open and close taking in co2 in the day then closing at night to help the plant not lose water because there isn't any photosynthesis happening in the dark.

    We also thin out the bottoms of our plants by removing the lower branches which gives more air movement underneath the plants and helps increase the energy the plant can give to the upper flower growth.

    The lower number of plants you have in a room and if they aren't cramped you don't have to thin as much as a grower doing tight sog's or scrogs.
