I’ve read a lot and from what I understand I should wait until the flowering phase to trim fan leaves. However I’ve got a few leaves that are restricting light from lots of new growth. I really want to trim just a few…your thoughts?
And…it’s day 22 FFOF, 5 gal pots, water every other day, 18/6…what phase am I in? Am I ready for chemicals? Topped 'em 3 days ago. Regular seeds…cannahaze (can’t find any info…)
I’ve pretty much butchered my one plant - she’s so bushy and won’t stop producing monster fan leaves. I pick the handful that are seriously shading the rest of the plant and yank em. Just remember the fan leaves are the source of energy, so only take a few at a time and allow her time to build new ones in less inconvenient spots.
Your right. It is best to wait till 2nd week in flower to defoliate. You can take a leaf or two if you can’t bend them outta the way. Train your fan leaves same way you train your tops. NEVER take more then 30% of total foliage in any defoliation and always do it on feed days. Its important to have readily available nutrition after you stress your plant.
