    I have heard rumors lately that guys are doing extreme defoliation and hitting 3+ per 1k

    I have only ever defoliated wide leaf indicas. Selectively. I was always told those leafs store valuable nutrients. But new knowledge has been leaking out about heavy defoliation and I think im going to give it a try on my next run

    These are the type I usually remove. And I notice much better growth underneath once removed 20170804_194834.jpg

    4 weeks in flower today :cool:

    Yeah so i decided to defoliate a little just to get more light to the lower part of the plants. Also fed them today.

    NO, of you do not do it from the start correctly leave the fan leaves alone, even when defoliating never remove the fan leaves

    Ouch, I seen after I posted you already did it, if you take a fan leafs and pinch the stem you can tuck it out of the way , but the fan leaves are what generate your bud size. Unless it's like the last couple of days I never remove them ,

    I have tried side by side grows , one leaving the fan leafs on, the other removing them, the grow that had them left alone way out preformed the grow that had them removed ,

    Personally I don't defoliate but that's just me.....but I am concerned with the white spots on your leaves, looking like PM (Powdery Mildew)

    If this PM you most certainly need to get it under control really quick...below is a homemade cure

    1 gallon of water
    1 tablespoon of baking soda
    1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
    1 tablespoon of dishwashing liquid
    Mix the ingredients together and add them to a spray bottle.
    Spray your plants weekly, preferably just before lights out

    If you do a preventative spray once a week with pH water and 3 ml of h2o2 35 percent you will not hardly ever have a issue with pm or bud rot,
    It kills it before it can start

    The worst time to treat for mites,mold , bugs, is after you already have them , the best time is before you ever get them .
