In this episode, I go over the timing of my switch from veg ("grow") nutrients to bloom (flower) nutrients. I also demonstrate how I installed structural bamboo and ties to assist with branch support in anticipation of developing flowers, and extra weight along with it.

Have you ever seen leaves grow like this?? 20190819_163740.jpg

I also show my fabricated system for blocking a light leak coming into my garden from a nearby neighbor's house. This is essential so that your plants can sleep, and do not get confused into thinking that it is still veg time. Extended light leaks during flower can also lead to your plants becoming too stressed, and morphing into hermaphrodites ("herming out"), which will cause them to develop the oh-so dreaded undesired seeds.

I conclude by showing the beginning stages of my makeshift greenhouse construction, the purpose of which is to provide rain protection for the flowering plants, as moisture will soon set in late next month (September).

I also wanted to note that when I unearthed the root ball after taking down that gargantuan 7 ft. tall Vampire plant, there was absolutely no signs of even the beginning stages of root rot (Pythium). Seeing these healthy roots was quite a relief from worry about the rest of the garden, as it seems the nute burn/lockout did not spur this dreaded plant disease.
