Flower Room with Trees Maturing at Different Rates: How to Manage Environmental Variables?

I've got a tree that looks like she will be done in 10 days. Another that looks ready in about 20 days and another seems to have 30 days remaining.

According to most grow advice, I would plan to lower temps + Co2 in the last 2 weeks of flowering. However in this case, some plant's buds are still in the MIDDLE of forming buds (too early to do that!).

So what to do? Just keep all at full-tilt? I wonder, might this have some negative consequence for the trees that are trying to finish up? Or no issue?

bump this is a good question I’m interested in what others that have perpetual grows have to say about this I personally think that it’s not a problem there should be a medium that u could stay with in a certain parameter to benefit the different stages of growth not sure if my thinking is correct ,, I’m actually working towards a perpetual grow right now I haven’t tried yet so would love to hear feedback on this !

Find a happy medium and live with it
Ya thats what I was thinking my self just don’t know if there a a way to do that lets say with using one Rez , I know with temps and CO2 you can find a medium and there won’t be any issue there

Many of us have been growing perpetual for years. We put new plants in before the others is done flowering.

Just keep the environment the same, don't over complicate a fairly simple question. I would stop using CO2 all together. I would add CO2 after everything's dialed in.

In the future when you have more than one flower room you can test different measures like lowering temps etc so you can make out what's positive or negative about said change. You need some data from a harvest without said measures/changes to make out if it's good or not.

That's what I would do at least. You have more important things than focusing on the environment at the end of flower. Try different and optimize your watering techniques first and dial that part in. Perfect health from feeding and watering should be the main priority!

Hope that helps. Cheers!

you're supposed to stop CO2 last few weeks so they mature/ripen correctly.

i would focus on the ones that will finish first

I haven't reduced co2. The one that is later in the cycle still has a lot of white pistils. I thought it will comtinue to mature bigger and slower by keeping conditions static.

Whereas the slower one that is in the middle of stacking, could really make much use of that co2 of course.

So I've been focusing on the slower one and thus grouping them together. Its just a couple weeks behind I think but seems to be evening out.

Its all not an exact science because for example with wedding cake, its been known to finish in 7 to 10 weeks of flower... I think the environment influences that. And I don't see any problem arising from giving them plenty of time for resin glands and pistils to develop at their own pace in the high growth enviro.

Idk just what I'm trying...

Well said, I've been doing perpetual for few years now but it def takes a bit of 'dialing in to get it all rolling along smoothly at pace yr after, but like wastei sd u don t need to over complicate things & I also find especially when 1st sussing it out it pays to chuck an extra clone in small pot sitting inbetween bigger plants I sit them in drip trays on top of pots the bigger plants are in it took me a while but now I can pull a cpl good plants every 2- 3 weeks I smtmes will have 4 wk gap but normally each 2- 3 wks pull 2 plants Good luck
