Defoliate or not?

Why defoliate? If it’s for improving airflow to the interior of the plant or because you are worried about bud rot then yes. If possible it’s best to tuck fans until the plant decides to release them. Remember the leaves produce all of the sugars consumed by the plant to make flowers.

Lol but seriously. There are two schools of thought. One says pruning and defol improve yield, others say pruning and defol only if you must

I did some lst on the side branches to open her up. Good light penetration now. Only had to deal with a few leaves that were covering up bud sites. Thanks all
