Hi all.

2 weeks into vegging. 

Just wanted another growers opinion on how my ladies are looking. Was feeding nutes but was getting some nute burn. My mate said just ph'd water and take off the yellowing leaves which I've done and they seem to be recovering. 

How they looking now?

Thanks for the reply mate. 

Yeah I think i caught it early because they have totally recovered. When I transplanted into their final pots, I topped them too so wasnt sure if i had just stunted them. 

Good to know I'm doing ok. 

Cheers mate

Hi all. 

All your advice was great so thanks for that. 

Flushed them of their nutes and was just water for a while. They recovered pretty well so I started a 1/4 dose of the nutes and took off the leaves that were yellowing. 

Been using the nutes now for bout 4 days and no issues since.

That's the smallest one. I've topped it once when I transplanted but not touched them since. None of them have any light or nute burn 

I've been looking into the defoilation technique for when i switch them to flower which I'm hoping to do next week just to try and get as much light as possible in there. What's peoples opinion on that? 

Sorry for rambling folks. Just put that much time into them wondering whether we are looking sweet?

@new-at-this welcome to the site.

basic things to do 

1. To get the most out of your plants, you need to fill all available space under your lights in late veg/early flower and give the buds support in late flower(indoor lights penetration is weak compared to the sun) so you want short plants (topping, LST and a little defoliation if the canopy is too full of leaves and this is reducing airflow into the canopy) with a large full canopy 2-3ft high above the pot is best.

2. keeping a good environment in the flower room will always give you better results (18c minimal lights out, 30c lights on (canopy level)) lots of air flow.

3. giving the plants the right amount of food/water at the right time (over water or underwatering can damage the plants) 

4. always best to go one pot size higher than you need as it helps to keep the plant healthy.

but most important, enjoy yourself its good fun growing weed Thumbs Up

Training would be your best option here mate, tie the side branches down to let more light get to the smaller side shoots, but no need to remove anything off her yet.

Hey man and welcome to Percys. Think @jacks_farm has pretty much answered your questions but I would definitely echo what he said about LST. Im only actually just starting my 2nd grow but the one thing I will definitely do harder this time is LST.

I read up quite a bit on whether to defoliate of not and you can find arguments for and against it. Personally I didnt do any defoliation until the stretch had finished at which point I lollipopped mine. I went with the reasoning that the plants use the leaves for photosynthesis so the more leaves the plant has the more energy it can get. 

Other then that, looking great so far, good job man Thumbs Up

Here one of my plants I LST earlier tonight, I used some mesh, cut a line in the middle so I could slide it under my plant and fixed it to the pot, (something I made up) so I can pull any shoot down and hold it in place at any angle with some garden wire(s shape hook)(works really well).

(I didn't remove any leaves)

LST

Welcome to Percy's mate. You'll find a great community here.

I'll share my experience. When I started growing I didn't know anything about defoliation and I got very good results, especially for a beginner grower. Then I heard about it and went at it like crazy and in retrospective I wasn't very happy with the result. Now I am not defoliating, just only removing a leaf here or there only if they aren't getting any or very little light and if it helps to keep better air circulation.

You want to have as much leaves as possible capturing and harvesting that light and transforming it into energy, so that the plant can use that energy to move around the nutrients where the plant needs them for stem, leaves, tops, flower, etc.

So if you remove a fan leave that is getting full light, the plant will spend energy and nutrients and water trying to build a new one, instead of using that spent energy and nutrients and water into forming fiower. As long as you are in veg, it shouldn't be that dramatic, you would just be extending your veg time.

But in my experience, don't do it. Don't defoliate. Remove specific fan leaves ONLY if they aren't getting any light and/or if you have issues with high humidity and want a better air circulation.

Happy growing and good smokes!

Great advice mate. 

At the start I had an issue with temp inside tent but we are heading into winter now so room temps have dropped since. It's at 26C at the moment but it never gets above 28C. 

They are looking crazy now, I've always had issues with either soil or nutes or temperature but I've never seen them as bushy as these ones are. 

Going to flip to flower soon I think.

I purchased some plastic garden ties the other day for it so defo gonna try that.

I know when I flip them to flower they'll explode with growth but I've never seen shoots like this. It's almost like every node has an extra node underneath it. 

I'll try get a pic to show you mate 

Thanks for the reply.

Thanks man. 

I've never done the defoliation before. My last grow, it was a mate that did it as it was my first grow and like you say theres for and against with it. I've heard people can kill the plant if done incorrectly so think I'll play it save and just focus on lst .

Thanks for the reply mate. 

Yeah I've researched it a bit but I'm not sure of my own skills yet so think I'll knock it on the head and just focus on LST.
