[quote= EDIT: oh yea, so should I clip the fan leaves blocking the bud sites? there are a few blocking it... I was confused by your link to your post... was it a good idea or no?[/quote]
no it wasnt a good idea, the buds dont need light as mich as leafs. the leafs at the crotch of every growht node are like solar panals (thanks to heymen guy for that one), the buds ge their engery from that. sure they produce their own leafs once they fillout but i wouldnt cut any leafs, just tuck them under and away from any would be bud sites.
i wouldnt mess with the leafs, they would be the first place to find evedince of a problem with your plant.. on top of being its life sorce...
that was my expeiment.. to se if anything could grow in my closet under my supervision and TLC, it did grow but i made a huge mistake. i dint invest in a $5 PH kit that could of let me know something was up befor it all went bad, not totally bad but i knew something was up when i had necrotic parts forming on the remaining leafs right next to the buds.
oh ya.. dont let the lights fall onto and burn your buds, you'll have to cut the dead matter away if it does
