It’s experience more than math, but the math lines up with my experience
Sorry, the chickens were throwing a fit fur some water, so I didn’t get to finish before.
As for the tops that you’re seeing, turning the lights down a lil bit would be beneficial. It lowers the rate of hermies and foxtailing at the end stages.
They don’t need as much light power now that the stacking is over and you’re putting on the weight. At this stage, in nature, the plants are ripening up when the light hours are less and the sun intensity is lower.
Lowering intensity will also lessen the potassium (K) issues by lowering demand to keep up with the lights. It’s a big part of the photosynthesis process as a metabolic catalyzer of carbs, proteins and aminos the plants produce from the light energy.
Since you’re on bottles nutes, currently, you can’t just add in more, alone. That’s where potassium sulfate (potash) comes into use. Look at your bottles, the useable K is always potash. It’s K & S alone. It’ll bump up your potency (K) and terps (S). I’d get a bag and boost my bottles during the high demand phase wks6 - (depends on strain time).
I hadn’t thought about turning down the light intensity. That actually makes alot of sense. Time to do some reading.
Ever notice that the lowers always look better and more frosty? They’re getting less light, but still have nice density. Food fur thought. Ima prime rib kinda guy - I prefer the buds several inches down from the tops
That’s bugging me. It should read:

I will look tonight when i get home from work and do my feeding. Ill post pics with all my runoff numbers and of the bottles.
I just didn’t want a misunderstanding above, so I fixed it, for proper sentence flow.
Can skip the bottle pix; if ya want. I don’t need to see ‘em. If you choose to post them for educational purposes here, that’s fine as well.
Here tonights feeding results. All in all i belive im in pretty good shape. Getting close to water only i belive.
Couple money shots this evening lol
Thanks guys!! @Low @Bracketh
Ive ran into an issue. Dont think its a 100% bad tging but would love some extra options… my runoff water is alive!!
They look like little bity mosquito larva but i know thats not what they are. Any ideas? And do i need to try and do something about them?? @dbrn32 @DEEPDIVERDAVE @Low @Budbrother
These are feeding results from today.
Those buds are stacked like crazy!!
Idk about the larvae/bugs in the water
@Caligurl @JaneQP @Lacewing ?
H2O2 or chlorine and see if they still swim.
My 350-lound friend lost a year and since to West Nile Virus.
Neem might work for ground watering, also.
Thanks man lol. Looks like a bob ross painting. Happy little 2x2 .
They look like mosquitoes but ive never seen mosquitoes come out of dirt? This was in my runoff, had to come out of the medium whatever they are lol. I got the shop vac and sucked all the runoff i could out from under my pot.
My guess would be gnat larvae. I suppose they could be mosquitoes but gnats are more common.
Have you noticed any gnats flying around? The typical resolution for gnats is sticky traps for fliers and a bti (product like mosquito bits) soil drench for tha larvae.
I have noticed some knats. Had a bannana peel in the lung room trash can…
Sorry just got back from Thanksgiving. Dbrn got you. Mosquito bits and mosquito dunks are easy to find locally, usually. Banana peel + water to lay eggs = your probable situation
Hope you and yours had a great turkey day
