Use it in a nice salad and or mulch :)
I can just lay the fan leaves on the soil right? Or should i chop them up? I should just chop him even with the soil and let the microbes break everything else down? Will the micro herd survive if i take the pot and set it out of the tent where it will be cooler?

Yes @FerretWrangler just chop and place them on the top of the soil no need to chop them up.
Chop the guy down to the stump, don't rip up the stump leave the soil and roots undisturbed. No til is best.
The microherd is incredibly resilient and will be fine outside the tent just don't let it dry out completely at any stage.
Awesome! I've got a plan for sunday now. Thanks @Sunshine :)

Since my hood is open faced how does the fan mantain suction and the air get filtered? Maybe im overthinking it but wouldn't the pungent flower air simply rise and get sucked through the hole on the right out of the fan and into the house?

The easiest way to configure it is to add the carbon filter to the right of the fan so the air is pulled out of the tent and pushed into the filter.
That makes it easy! So during late flower when i need to run the fan at all times it's gonna suck the sides of the tent in and squish the plants during dark cycle due to how well the tent seals and the suction. Is that a common problem? Does it hurt anything? It'll probably break bang leaves.

Yes the negative pressure will pull the sides of the tent in, depending on how loose the tent is. This isn't a bad thing and means all of the smelly air is being sucked out rather than leaking into the room.
Opening all available vents should help relieve some of the pressure and stop the sides sucking in quite as much.
How many vents does the tent have? What's the brand again?

Its a gorilla grow tent and has 4 vents. I cant remember the exact dimensions something like 3.5x3.5x6.5

Also, 100000% male. More clusters of sacs forming and stem under the big cluster i pictured yesterday.

My girl and I tried to have a salad of him but we couldn't do it. He was SPICY. Like if mustard greens, arugula, and fire ants all got together and spawned this plant. I know that could sound appealing but trust me I like spice greens but something about his taste screams "don't eat me".

0/10 would not recommend. This fellow is gonna be mulch.

Really nice plant, RIP :)

It's handy you have so many vents to play with and fine tune things, very useful.
Thanks @Sunshine my fingers are sticky and smell kinda like bleach, or if a boy plant had the equivalent of human body odor.

I generally keep the front flaps on the tent open anyways, and 3 vents.

I found that weird angles mitigate the bars in hps photos, but i cant do anything about the color saturation.

I'm confident you'll get them through, as long as you stay on top of the watering you can't go wrong! :)
I'm keeping the soil topped up like a wet sponge :)

On the lower half of my plants the fan leaves are getting dry and leathery, and at the very bottom they are dying. They aren't yellowing like the plant is hungry though. Thats to be expected right? The leaves are just old and don't get much light anymore.

I think it's very slight over watering, nothing that can't be easily remedied by cutting back. When you flip to 12/12 they use less liquid so cut back accordingly.
It's not a bad idea to let them almost dry once or twice around this stage to get some air to the roots. Do that and cut watering down/run it a little less moist and you'll see improvements in days.

Sounds very reasonable @Sunshine I'll do exactly that. They're mostly stretching like crazy but the female pineapple seems whimpy in comparison. Hopefully she's an indica dominant. My gf would love that.
