New guy on the block

Ok… First thanks for being here for your experienced input, and for exchanging ideas. I am new to all this, but I have already started, and read as much as I could, always learning and enjoying it all. I have (2) 4 x 4 Tents, 1 600w LED and 2 450w LED’s (One 450 used in the veg tent), and have 3 plants growing in flower just into week 3 day 3in tent #1.There are exhaust fans in both tents, along with fans. (Thanks to the information on here, I have tried to set things up for success). (All part of the enjoyment). Had to put the axe to 3 males (prior to pollenating…whew!) and put 3 more plants into flower. I am debating on 2 possibly being males…But that is part of the learning curve…right? They were all started from germinated seed and put into Hyponex Potting Soil. I have FF neuts, on hand, (Grow Big, Big Bloom, and Tiger Bloom). No neuts are being given to any of the 3, presently, as I have buds on the 3 (oldest flowering ladies) and one in particular has signs of a lot of nitrogen in the leaves, so I have been just giving plain pH’d water (6.2pH) and keeping an eye on them, along with misting them 2 x per light period. Temps @ (74 deg F/ 40% H) Because of the nitrogen thing, I decided, after reading a lot of articles, to defoliate the 3 oldest, and (see pic) and so far, it is working out well, (did this 2 days prior to these pics. So, here I am, and if there is anyone out there that would like to offer their 2 cents, (or more), it is all appreciated… I am really enjoying all that goes into growing, and again, thanks to all that have offered their experience that is benefiting so many!
