It doesn't seem to be bothering it - I've been trimming off any leaves or leaf tips that actually touch the plastic dome (the one touching in that last photo was trimmed right afterward). I also keep that room a bit on the cool side (60-65F) so the ambient temp right next to the light probably stays 60-75F.

12/15 - Day 99 (58 days of 12/12)
Some below average pics this time. Was without an internet connection for a bit so in the pics I took Monday (eight weeks of 12/12) I experimented with hand-holding my tele lens and got a bunch of unusable shots. This coming Monday I'll pop the the res right out of the cabinet again and take some good pictures under more neutral lighting.

I've started to back off the nutrients, did a res change out Monday and they're now at about half strength.

Day 97:


Day 99:


---Edit:

Mini-Update, Day 102:

I had intended to let this go the full ten weeks of flowering but managed to time that to come right during the holiday at a time I may or may not be about the house to harvest. I've gone ahead and switched to reservoir to plain pHed water.

Pre-harvest Summary and Conclusions:

My training regimen would have most likely been more successful if it were better timed - I did too much defoliation early on and not enough during the stretch as I wasn't here to do it. I've tried to get some pictures of the popcorn bud clusters this led to lower down on the larger plant, I'll do a better job of that on Monday. I could have improved overall vigor by doing more frequent reservoir changes and more closely monitoring pH. I briefly considered replacing the DWC with a Solo cup SoG with soil or coir for the next run but decided the reduced maximum height would cost more yield than that would gain. I've also decided against making a new reservoir with three or more plant spaces.

I'll not make any final judgments on the system until I've had a chance to put it through another run with a short indica dominant strain (I'm thinking Nirvana's Papaya). I won't be able to get a reliable yield estimate this time as I've been vaping some taster buds before they were dry enough to get a dry weight.

So you did around 40 days veg, and 2 months flowering right?
And the defoliation started in veg and was supposed to continue during the flowering stage too?

There are no extremely big buds but I hope mine does get as good as yours :wink:

Well, nine weeks of flowering, but yeah, close to two months. The defoliation should be pretty minimal in flowering - mostly during the stretch and after that only where you're gaining better light penetration without the leaves (which of course is very rare) or where there are simply too many leaves for your grow space. The idea is mainly to control lateral growth in confined spaces so as to maximize your budding sites.

And yeah, not the best effort possible but I wasn't overly optimistic about a strong sativa dominant strain in these conditions anyway, just wanted to sate my curiosity and have a little headstash.

Like I said before I got bored and started vaping buds while it was still finishing so I don't really have a good dry wt. estimate. Maybe a half ounce. Just now realizing I never got around to adding my other harvest pics. Super-lame, guys, sorry.

I had fun re-reading this log though :pipesmoke:

I would only use cabinets like this for breeding or novelty purposes, really. You can make a dub tub style stealth box out of a couple rubbermaids or a filing cabinet that's much better for SoGing a small stealth crop.
