Skunkworks in Holland (if memory serves me) found that decarbing in the oil was nowhere near as effective as decarbing first. Try the way I suggested and see if it doesn't make a difference. My brownies that I make with Coconut oil in this fashion have been described as a "lost weekend".
Not sure what part of the country you are in, but here in the NE, my basement floors get cold in the winter. Solution, put foam board insulation under your plants. I use tents, and I have pink foam board under each tent and under my bins of soil. :circle-of-love: :peace:
Topping your girls should not stress them enough to hermi them. Just make sure you give them enough time in veg. It should probably be at least 2-3 weeks from the time you top till you flip them. Obviously it can be longer. :circle-of-love: :peace:
