I get the general idea of lollipoping. However, I’m not just sure how some of this applies in my situation. My girls are definitely in flower and are white widow autos by ILGM. I’m afraid of stunting them at this critical moment.
How many of the main fan leaves on the main stock should remain? I’m guessing that all would be bad. I’m not looking for a specific number obviously, just general guidance.
How about fan leaves on the stems? If this was a photoperiod, I would have done the 1/3 rule and they would be tall enough to do that without worrying about sacrificing budsites. I’m just not sure how this applies to autos in my situation as I don’t want to loose yield.
Since my goal with LST was to maximize the undergrowth and widen the plant, how much do I really want to cut off here?
I will include a photo of one that I “lightly” defoliated abd another that I haven’t touch since light defoliation during it’s veg.
With light defoliation.
Not touched at all.
