Love these two photos, fantastic!Day 39 update
Hola! Here is a time lapse since the second defoiliation, from the day 34-39.
Yeah veg is best under blue light but if your wanting branches to catch up then putting them branches under a red light will make them stretch to make a more even canopy. I have red and blue and have to swap them around as the ones under the red stretch more.
Stretch has set in!
Some opposite branches are of unequal length because my closet is unevenly illuminated and I haven't rotated the plants good enough.
If I want to make the plants more symmetrical should I direct the shorter branches towards the blue or the yellow CFL for maximum branch growth?
Wow look at them now, so healthy so many bud sites, that defoil worked great. I'm just a bit scared of it still, i'll keep watching all yours.
Good question. I'll keep watching to see the answer. On one hand, the most upward growth I have gotten on some strains is when I put them under a flowering spectrum and cut the lights to 12/12 (how much that has to do with the light type as opposed to a certain plant's traits I don't know). On the other hand the blue spectrum is supposed to be for growth and should be the spectrum to go with. I've read that you can keep the height of your plants down by using HPS during veg, but I don't know if it works the opposite in flowering (MH for taller plants).
O yeah thanks for reps Inkdot!
Didnt defoil mine just topped them all as the side branches are big regardless. Your defoil looks great now though, I'm just a little scared
