You my friend have one of the most unique growing styles. Stands out from all others for sure. A blend of many things all wrapped into one and it works quite well. I can see the nubs where you super-cropped quite distinctly. I'll have to get back into that habit myself. Super-cropping is a very good thing for not only increasing yield, but in giving those plants a solid base for heavy buds. I'm keeping a close eye on this one...you may sway me over to that defoliation technique yet. BTW.....I wonder if it's something in the GG#4 genetics that makes it prone to going hermie? The feminized Gorilla Bomb I have hasn't popped nuts but it has put out a number of small nanners. Right at the very tips of the buds is where they form. It's not too bad since I watch them so close but as you say...only the strong shall remain. If I didn't need to fill my coffers so badly I'd axe this particular pheno and move on.
