    Today I hit day 41 flower. Im one nuting from water only and wrapping hese girls up. Ive never had this happen before and am not worried just want to see how some of you would go about this. Two of my ladies are already N deficient. No matter what I throw at them thy gobble it up turn green for half a day then by next water theyd be yellowed out. If i stop nuting them friday theres no way they make it 2-3weeks like the rest of my ladies. My question is: given a situatuon where you know the deficiency, and its correction and have 2-3 weeks left in the grow. Would you let them go and pull them early when they are ready. Or would you throw N at them to string them along and finish with the rest. Never had plants finish like this. Im not tripping as the two plants in question have beautiful buds,and appear to just be ending on their own. Im inclined to just finish them when they finish rather than N them up hard just to turn around and flush it later. One last question. Ive never had a situation where only N was needed. So ive never looked for x-0-0 before. What would you recommend if I run into this again. I was a boyscout and believe in being prepared. With a few suggestions ill buy something and have it on hand. Thank you all in advance. Heres a day 41 pic of my Jupiter O.G for shits and grins.

    Please separate your thoughts.

    One big run on sentence is hard on the eyes and head.

    If you were more organized, more people would read your thread.

    If you have questions make them clear and separate. In point form.

    I wouldn't add N, there's a better chance one of your other nutes is off or ph and it's throwing off your n uptake.

    What are you using for medium?
    What are you feeding, how often?
    Is your soil drying out excessively?
    Whats your ph?
    What's your ppm?
    What nute line are you using?

    FFoF, Botanicare main. Beastie Blooms. 3-4 days in between water. Soil ph reading 6.4.

    To be concise. Im not worried about the plants, everything checks out. They have time to play wih if I wanted to fix it. They appear to just want to finish early, even though same clone.

    My question, which is more curiosity. Is at the start of flush, if you had a known deficiency, multiple plants on same cycle, two wont make the whole duration of flush, would take them early or string them along?

    I am versed in the loss of a couple weeks time on a plant. Just seeing what you guys would do.

    I'd watch the trichs and harvest when you like. Plants will be plants man. Unless you wrote down every parameter and ensured they call got the same light and airflow nutes everything.

    One clone might have been a little better than the others. Who knows.

    Id just harvest when they are ready to you

    Throw some n to the plant. They still need a tiny bit and it will help weight and quality to mature the extra time. Looks nice!

    First of all your plants look really great. I would just water as needed ...maybe pull back just a bit to give them desert-like conditions and harvest when they are ready. Three weeks to harvest for me used to be the cutoff when I ran nutes....if you have to go longer then they should get fed again. Giving more of anything won't make much difference at this point IMO...Plants can go yellow to red to blue in the final weeks; it is a normal function of ripening; at least you know you are not picking too early. You'll notice that while the fans may turn colors first the sugar leaves will stay green much longer.

    L
    Deficient plants will always try to finish early or at least look like it. Plants with everything they need will always go gangbusters. Why wouldn't you want to give them everything they need?

    If it was week 2 yes i would. Friday ends week 6. The other 6 are where they will hold up for 2-3 weeks while I run them out.

    Plants still have a lot to do in the last 2-3 weeks. You've already said that they're not getting enough N. That's an easy thing to fix.
