So I am currently growing 5 white widows from ILGM. I grew some last year as well so I ha e a little experience with the strain.
Anyway I had issues with 2 of my plants which prolonged my Veg period a few weeks in order to get those 2 plants healthy prior to switching to flowering. Because of the extended Veg period my plants are large and full of foliage.
I have read many articles in the subject of removing leafs during flowering and have seen several different opinions.
My question being is I would like to remove some of the leafs to allow light to lower bud sites to try and increase my yeild and also thin them out a bit to make a little more room in my grow space. Is it ok to remove some of the leafs on the upper parts of the plants to allow more light to the lower parts of the plants?
I already trimmed off the lower leafs and also some lower branches that were not recovering enough light.
Was hoping to get some opinions from some growers who remove leafs during flowering and the results they had.
My plants are 3.5 weeks into flowering. Here is a picture of 1 of them.
