Heck yeah! There she goes. :+1:

I have friend who is experienced out door grower he suggested that I pull all the big leaves is that right

These people on here have saved my plants more than once. A great place to learn

day 10 of Bloom

I wouldn’t strip them completely, but now would be a good time to do some trimming, right before the burst of growth during the stretch. Sounds like your friend may be referring to something like schwazzing, whereby heavily defoliating the plants directs more energy towards buds. There’s a pretty cool time lapse of that technique here:


Personally, I like to do more of a lollipopping type thing, taking only about the bottom half to 2/3 of the leaves, mainly to help with airflow but also to remove ‘sucker’ buds that don’t see much light. I don’t like to take a whole lot at once, seems to shock them a lot. However, I’m a fairly inexperienced grower, all in all. Outdoors, the plants have a ton more energy to work with, especially if they’re in a large container or in the ground. Indoors, I feel like every leaf you pull off is less ‘solar panels’ for the plant to take in energy, but it depends a lot on your setup and lighting, too. Maybe you could trim one plant and see how it goes a couple days later before stripping them.

Congrats on the progress of your grow glad things are working out.
I remove large fan leaves when needed to open up the canopy and to expose bud sites.

Yup I just take large fan leaves and get rid of them the any leaves blocking light from under growth if ur looking for big colas I’d recomend lollipoping them.

Do not pull all your big fan leaves off that’s where they get their sugar from you can pull some off to uncover some of the bud sites but do not pull them all off indoor growing is completely different than outdoor I speak from experience I’ve done it it can hurt you in the long run if you pull them off
