Maybe I need glasses but I don't see where you circled a fucking thing.
Edit: you used the thinnest possible thing imaginable to define your circles.
Regardless this isn't about you picking shit you don't like about my plants brother. If we were doing that it could get ugly.
You don't want it crazy hot. Mine was about 100 degrees. But just like everything else warmth losens things up. If you use only cold water you are essentially making it stick tighter to your buds.
I swished for about 2 minutes per branch. Has to be long enough to drown anything holding on...
