A few bottom leaves turning yellow, normal in early budding?

I’m 2-3 weeks into budding and I noticed 3 bottom leaves turned yellow today. I pulled 2 off before taking the pics.
The buds seem really happy and growing well so is it common to be losing bottom leaves this early into flower?
Also I increased my light from 80%-100% today

It’s OK to be losing lower leaves at this stage.


Thanks for the reassurance.

Yeah those leaves aren’t receiving enough light which means they’re not producing for the plant. The plant is essentially firing those leaves


That’s a smart way to look at it. I was just concerned something was creeping up on me and I wanted to nip it in the bud , so to speak.

Sometimes with real this plants you will notice some of the bottom inner leaves will turn from green → yellow → white. This is becouse the leave isn’t getting enough sunlight. Not even anough sunlight to stay alive let alone suppprt healthy plant growth.
Happy growing…
