Looking great man!
How much molasses do you use?
Thanks mate. The original plan was to use molasses but ive decided against it. Keeping it simple
I dont use it only to feed my endomycorrhizal onve in the grow n thats it
Yeah man i read up on it properly and learned its just a feed for your beneficials basically so didnt bother with it
Lads quick question. Defoliate or not?
I have heard rumors lately that guys are doing extreme defoliation and hitting 3+ per 1k
I have only ever defoliated wide leaf indicas. Selectively. I was always told those leafs store valuable nutrients. But new knowledge has been leaking out about heavy defoliation and I think im going to give it a try on my next run
These are the type I usually remove. And I notice much better growth underneath once removed
Holy crap the size of that fan leaf lol
4 weeks in flower today
Yeah so i decided to defoliate a little just to get more light to the lower part of the plants. Also fed them today.
And after a light defoliate
NO, of you do not do it from the start correctly leave the fan leaves alone, even when defoliating never remove the fan leaves
Ouch, I seen after I posted you already did it, if you take a fan leafs and pinch the stem you can tuck it out of the way , but the fan leaves are what generate your bud size. Unless it's like the last couple of days I never remove them ,
I have tried side by side grows , one leaving the fan leafs on, the other removing them, the grow that had them left alone way out preformed the grow that had them removed ,
Damn . Well least i know for next time thanks max
Personally I don't defoliate but that's just me.....but I am concerned with the white spots on your leaves, looking like PM (Powdery Mildew)
If this PM you most certainly need to get it under control really quick...below is a homemade cure
1 gallon of water
1 tablespoon of baking soda
1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
1 tablespoon of dishwashing liquid
Mix the ingredients together and add them to a spray bottle.
Spray your plants weekly, preferably just before lights out
Was waiting for somebody to say that lol . No mate its just droplets from watering them. Thanks for the heads up though
If you do a preventative spray once a week with pH water and 3 ml of h2o2 35 percent you will not hardly ever have a issue with pm or bud rot,
It kills it before it can start
Have yet to run into any of them issues " touch wood" haha.
The worst time to treat for mites,mold , bugs, is after you already have them , the best time is before you ever get them .
Looks like in a couple of these pics you maybe developing powdery mildew , or did you recently spray them with something?
