Wondering if I should be defoliating or anything ?

Wait till the stretch is completely finished, around 20 days from beginning of flower, then lollipop the lower canopy. If you do it too soon it can cause the stretch to be far worse than it should be.

I made the mistake of defoliation (alot). I had it asΒ  mainline and had this awesome internodal structure ( like the one In the picture, would have been an awesome plant if i had just left it alone. Im gonna follow this one.

Not sure about the leaf spots, but I was looking at the overall plant and thinking it was looking a bit on the lighter green side? I'm guessing your still feeding nitrogen. Do you check the pH of your water? Before and after adding nutes? It could be struggling taking up certain nutes to an imbalance? Just my thoughts....sorry I made you read this (while I click post)lol.

@mcgrower Β not as green in real life think it’s the way the led affects phone camera Β but is abit pale so could be nutrients as have lowered the grow by half on last feed

@dankdixy what was the soil you used? Yeah maybe. Try going back to the solution you previously used. But at the same time it would be good to treat the spot on the leaf. I'm hoping someone else comes in with an answer?

It looks like a magnesium deficiency and the timing is correct too. Demand is highest for the cal/mag nutrients in mid flower and you’re approaching that now. I’m betting that the generic garden center stuff wasn’t fortified with much magnesium and cannabis needs it.

I was going to suggest some calmag too, I didn't use calmag in my first couple of grows because I thought it was just for coco growers only.lol my plants looked all scabby as fuck.Β  But now I usually start adding some calmag about week 3 of flower, some strains need more than others.

@im_sparky cheers bro haven’t actually got cal/mag but just went back to original measurements of the biobizz grow so I assume it has cal/mag in it definitely sorted the problem

@dankdixy I think it might be a good idea to get a bottle of calmag anyway just to have on stand by, BioBizz make bottles of calmag too.Β  Iv used BioBizz grow, bloom and top max since I started growing so I thought I would just stick with them and I bought a 0.5L bottle of BioBizz calmag.

I look at calmag as being an important ingredient in all my grows now, I always add some around week 3-4 of flower even if the plants look totally healthy.

My first plants didn't get any and they were fine but some other strains have ended up looking like a burn victim's ball bag but since I started using calmag iv not had many problems on that front.

I only add about 1-2ml at a time three or four times in each grow so it lasts a while. I would highly recommend getting a bottle sometime, I think I bought my bottle off ebay for about a Β£10ish.

It's better to have something in the cupboard and not use it rather than have nothing in the cupboard.lol

She's looking good tho man, shaping up nicely πŸ™‚

@stootie it’s on my to buy list just skint at the moment (always)Β 
I’m hoping now have first 5 plants drying the next few months entire wages are not going to fund my filthy addiction lol so will have a bit of upgrade money Β 

any recommendations on brands for cal/mag or shall I just go for biobizz own just to complement the nutrients I have till these bottles run out or is it fine to mix and match ? First time using nutrients and only using biobizz as got a try kit for my birthdayΒ

@dankdixy Haha I was the same I bought a Biobizz try pack off amazon when I started growing lol and when they got done I just bought big bottles of grow, bloom and top max bacause I was happy enough with it.

I would imagine any brand will be ok but I just went with biobizz bacause all my other nutes are from them and I also thought they might complement each other but I dont know.

Plus bio bizz nutes are organic, so that might be a thing to watch for when using other brands which might have salt or whatever in them πŸ™‚Β

Looking noice dude. Big improvement. Its upto you but some people also remove the budsites aswell as the leaves lower down. These buds don't really grow fat and dense when there in a lower light level, also takes away nutes for the higher part where it can grow to its true potential. You'll get like little popcorn buds down there, good for watching movies. Keep going dude she's gonna be a beaut!!

@dankdixy If it were me, I'd work my way up to the red line, but do it gradually over a few days.

@dankdixy exactly what @im_sparky said. Red line is better. That way your top buds are benefit and so big and dense, good smoke dude.

I take everything below the red line off and I do it all in one shot, usually about 20 days from flip. The plants don’t even hiccup and the top colas start really stacking as a result. Those lower buds are a pita to trim and would best be used for edibles or hash. Not worth it imo. I totally understand your hesitation, I used to be the same but now I wouldn’t consider leaving the lowers unless I was making hash.

@dankdixy learning to lollipop is an art that you need to perfect yourself. What you’ve done looks great. If you feel comfortable, let this one run like this and then assess the results at harvest. This is what I did to learn what works best for me. Over the course of a few runs you’ll be teaching others, I promise.
