New Scrogger: Should I defoliate?

It is Day 53 from seed and about a week in with flower. Before flip, I defoliated the hell out of the plants by stripping everything below the net. I was biting my nails because they now looked bald-headed and shrunken. But, I used recharge and treated them like the princesses they are, and now they’re taking up the whole tent. Should I wait to defoliate again, or should I wait till after the stretch to clear out some of the bottom? I have 5 fans; 3 at the bottom of the canopy and 2 at the top for that added air flow. Humidity is surprisingly at 44%.


They look great!! Most folks will defol at 21 days and at 42 days.

Good luck and keep’em growin! :+1:t2::v::sunglasses:


Thank you for the feedback! I will try to go by that schedule.
