I don't know about stressing myself out, but stress might actually be a good thing overall. Think about stressing yourself out in the gym for example. It pays off in the end if done correctly. At first it's painful and uncomfortable, but you get stronger and you will feel better in the end. But plants? Doesn't trichome production have something to do with stressing the plant?
I get it what you're saying, but there is also an other side to these words.
Last time I got 1.8gpw. This time I got 1.6gpw - was it because I lowered temps in the end or was it because of something else, I don't know, but I did not actually recognize an increase of quality to be honest, only the decrease of mass. So there's that.
One day I will have lots of different rooms to do science with. I will be able to compare results side by side, but until then I will lay my questions here. Don't tell me to not bother and let the plants do their thing, okay?
