Mine did that when I had a fan close by.
She’s getting use to her environment just fine.
Day 11/14 Early Veg
Just a couple pictures showing grow update
Still not sure why the bottom Fan Leafs are flipping like that but plant looks nice and healthy
You can cut those two leaves off as they are dying/gonna be dead soon. Don’t need the plant spending energy on that. Better she exerts her energy on new growth
You think they are dying? Besides flipped they are green and no signs of deficiency?
Ps roots are Snow White. This time I’m not going to let root rot take over been using hydro and revive right from the start
They are still useful until they go under the dark canopy or over 50% dead:
Late Veg day 4/14
Everything looks great so far!! When should I start taking fan leafs off? So far every leaf is green no shows of any deficiencies
Take bottom leaves off as they stop receiving light. As flowers start to develop bend top leaves out of the way… You always want about a foot of canopy… Once you get through a first grow in the unit and get used to the plant itself it gets a lot easier I will add!
Day 12 of late Veg I think I should add 1 more week?
Also I removed some bottom leaves should I remove more?
Thanks again for the help
I would add two more weeks! Rule of thumb is no more than 20% removal at one time, so that’s about right.
Yep try and get as close as you can to the second fan . It might be a pain but it should be beneficial in the end
Thanks for the tips I added 1 week for now. Looks like I may add 1 more week later on.
Is the best time to change to 12/12 when I hit the bottom or top of the second fan?
Honestly it varies I’ve noticed. You just have to play with it with different grows. Keep in mind sativa will stretch more. Hybrids you’ll probably roll the dice with, Indica not so much.
I’m running green crack, sativa, and it’s stretched pretty good so far, had to supercrop 5 stalks and I flipped it just at the bottom of the fan. I also pushed my coco pod down the lid maybe 2". So there’s things you can do if you run out of room regardless
I understand what you mean… This is the description of my seed from the breeder… Based on it being a dominant indica I think I will flip the to 12/12 at the bottom of the second fan. For my first grow I prefer not to run out of room. Based on your experience would you agree that the bottom of the top fan is a save to make the change?
- Genetics: Gelato #33 x Lemon Tree
- Type: Indica dominant
- Seed Type: Feminized
- Flowering: 8-9 weeks
Gelato with Lemon Tree was a no brainer for us. Our Lemon Tree is the loudest, most lemon-y strain we have ever encountered. The lemon comes through koud and combines beautifully with the unique sweet Cookies of the Gelato.
For indica dominant strains I would flip at the top of the fan because indicas are shorter.
Keep up with your grow journal. The next time you grow the same strain. You’ll make the appropriate changes.
That’s a really good tip thanks
Did it happen to say if it was short, medium or tall? Anyway I might do it at the bottom the this first time around and then you’ll know for next time if you needed another week or that it was fine where you flipped it. If you have more of the same strain that is
Looking really nice and full . I’d say you could probably giver a haircut though
