Decided to do some plucking, was it needed no definitely not as they could of used the stores of nutrients and sugars produced from those leaves, but they have plenty in the closer bud leaves.
My reasoning is the humidity was on the higher side anyways for finishing out which is a nice time for mold to become present as the plant is starting to slowly die out by shutting/slow down the older parts of the plant all so the newer parts still have a chance at catching pollen.
Also opening the canopy allows more light to get into the lower bottom buds which can catch up finish level wise to the top buds, this way the plant finishes a lot closer to the same level when looking at top to bottom ripeness when plants are really growing densely. So this will help the plant finish out quicker as well not that i needed too but it was time.
Also dropped the reservoirs down to around 700ppm (1.4ec) with just adding some water.
