good ground+lots of water+plus optium growth tempeture=the issues above(increased production of root and stem tissues. if he bags then this should not be his issues anyways
Yea, I realize that. I was just pointing it out since he made mention that he bags to avoid creating thatch, which side discharging won't do in and of itself.
