Hey thanks for the response!
I have 2 plants in there and its a bit crammed at the moment. Learning that the space of my 2x2x5 tent is more ideal for 1 healthy plant of this size. Definitely should have flowered a bit sooner too. This strain has stretched some cola sites within 5 inches of the light, with no more room to raise it. lol. Being my first indoor grow, I’m taking it all as a learning experience.
As for trimming. I’m still a nervous noob about getting too aggressive with defoliating. I see photos like yours and hope to get to that confidence eventually. I’ve been lightly trimming once a week to keep the jungle less dense as I’m worried about suffocation. I tried to super-crop a branch and immediately apologized to her and aborted. There is quite a few off-shoots on these, some I’ve removed and some have reached canopy level that I’m keeping around. I’m okay with a bit of larf on my first attempt.
Your flower is looking great on recent photos. I’m very curious how it’s going to smoke in the end. I’m noticing a significant amount of trichrome development on surrounding sugar leaves already on one of mine. The smell is mild at best right now. My fiance says it smells like rhubarb every time I open the tent. Very light compared to the outdoor gorilla glue I grew this season, which stank up the neighborhood.
Thanks for the warm welcome. I built myself an app to track this grow journey and at some point I’ll export all the data/graphs/photos/logs into a nice timeline that I can share my experience with others in a post as you have.
Looking forward to seeing your grow progress to harvest. Cheers!
