On or about the 1st week of March, 2015…

Light cycle is still 18 on 6 off, running the VEG spectra only on the Pro Grow LED PGX5-600. I decided to cut the veg time down by a few weeks, as growth has been exceeding my expectations.

The plants diet consists of water as needed and 2x feedings of Fox Farms Grow Big @ 50 recommended strength a week. I’ve kept the Pro Grow LED PGX5-600 on Veg only, as the growth has been spectacular.

LST (Low Stress Training) to maximize light coverage & induce lateral budding

I got aggressive with trimming up the lower scruff, and doing some standard LST (Low Stress Training) to encourage lateral growth to become tops.

Over the next few days the plants broke free from their wires a few times and had to be retied down.
