Grow Journal of the Month: Dec 2019
OK. Here we go! Today is Day 9 of 12/12
Good question, @Newfun . BTW, it is so good to have you back. Hope all is well there. Also, hope your hubby is doing well. I know stress can make things worse. My mother was terribly paranoid for some time after my father's death. The CBD has helped with that.Hi Mr. A. Missed so much over the past week or so. They all look so great. You flipped. Woohoo! Now the real "growing up" is going to happen.
Glad your human and plant families are well.
I was thinking, since the plants now have more space, they don't have each other's close proximity to share humidity and shade. Could that have added to heat stress on the roots as well?
If so, could watering them at a certain time before or after going in the new tent have helped keep that from happening?
Considered it today. Might still do it. Also have more binder clips and tomato wire (that thick green stuff, as if you didn't know) to do some tying down. Was concerned this might not be a good time.Hey Ala Looking great All the new growth is super healthy. You could un-accidentally bend a few more of the taller branches down. It might let you get the lights closer to the lower canopy levels, if you wanna. You I got not care to at this stage, and that’s fine too
Thanks, irie. Yes. Excited. Stoked. Relieved.Hey Al! Looking great in your garden You must be so excited to see some flowers in there!
Thanks, Shed. I felt compelled due to the issues we had to remove some now while leaving (haha) as many on as possible. Some would have come off regardless of what I did and in my mind some represented more of a threat than a help to the plants. If not for that I would have left them all alone.A few leaves here and there during stretch is fine, but you want to make sure the plant doesn't feel compelled to replace them — which is why we don't take many when we want the last push in vertical growth happening. And after stretch is the best time to prepare the plant for final flowering as N mentioned. That's also the time to take off any lower growth if you want to join my #nolarf club . I aim to push all flowering to the tops by taking off as much as possible down under.
