Flowering and defoliation

Hey guys want to get some feed back on defoliation during early flower. I have been taking off leaves that are in the way of potential bud sites. Can this harm the plant during flowering?? I haven’t noticed any issues so far but want to be cautious

U should stop defoliation around week five of flower

Should I leave it now and let it take its own course?

Buds are starting to show only just

If you can tuck them away from the budsites. You dont want tostress out in flowering mode.

I might from now on tuck fan leaves

At this point tuck what you can an it’s OK to take a few leafs. To create better light penetration and air flow. Good luck

So when u notice all the white buttons seem like they took a stall and r doing nuffin is the best time to do a flower defol. It’s working on roots at that point and will not do much harm as the bud sites r formed for the time being. It does not look bad tho. If u have any leaves now covering something important. Tie a string off to the branch and pull it out of the way and tie it off to the side of the pot. A slight bit of lst to open up the sites some. U’ll notice a big jump on growth if u spread it open some also as everything that didn’t get light now does and grows better.


I would defoliate it ,you do defoliation up to week five of flower

I really don’t know what to take I don’t want to take to much off or not enough haha

Only remove the leaves that are blocking the bud sites and if ur not to sure watch a video on how to defoliate on YouTube

I had a bit of a go how is that looking?

Thats good are doin any lst training cause that will help open up the canopy to let more light in

I defoliate at day 21 from light flip to 12/12
And then at day 42
Day 21 any leaf bigger than my palm goes
At day 42 anything with a stem goes


@Danielsan22 the big plant will be some very oily resin bud :+1:, super sticky , make sure you give them plenty of cure time , it’s gone be good buddy !
