I’ve got a great healthy grow going on and I would like to discuss some of the pros and cons to defoliation.
This is an Animal Cookie clone that I’ve scrogged. She is at the end of week 3 day 21 of flower and she is looking great. As you can see from the pics below I did a good job of cleaning all the lower branches. But at what point, if at all, do I defoliate. There are lots of smaller buds that are quite shaded. This strain grows really long leaf stems so it making for a tangled mess in the canopy.
Defoliate? Or let her do her thing?
