    Debating on doing a first and only defoliation on her. Just removing a few of the larger fan leaves up top.

    It’s a devil cream Auto from Sweet Seeds. Should I or just leave it?

    Reason I’m asking a kind of dumb question is because I’ve only grown two before this and didn’t touch them.

    Don't touch it dude. Let it eat up the fan leaves for food and absorb as much light as possible.
    Only thing I would suggest to do is make sure as many buds get un obstructed light as you can by bending branches, taking care not to snap them.
    Plus it's an auto and those plants don't deal with stress as much, and also it's in flower, you wanna keep the high stress training for earlier on in veg

    Id take the 4-5 biggest sets of fans off only from blocking multiple bud sites. Eait a week and do again if needed.

    You “ could “ still do a little LST to “ open it up “ a bit.

    Looks like a deficiency coming in too. You can also tuck leaves.

    Ok sounds like exactly what I was going to do lol. And yes it started those deficiencies like 3 weeks ago but I adjust nutrient levels. It’s not spreading anymore. She’s been heavy on feeding I notice.

    I agree with @Budzbuddha I would open her up a bit. You can tie some branches and spread her open a little and let more light in to your buds. I might take off a couple of the fan leaves that block light to your bud sites but if you can bend them out of the way it might be a better option

    I would remove the damaged leaves they are doing nothing and won't repair.

    If you look up Grand Master Level on you tube. He does a massive defoliation on day 14 of flower. I think it's episode one of season 4. You can check that video out. sorry I didn't post the link.

    I don’t remember exactly this was harvested a 2-3 grows ago. I have a plant I just harvested today that’s very similar to it though. It’s ppm was around 1200 but I gave it one or two big feedings where the ppm was around 1400-1500 ppm. They sucked up nutrients. Here’s pictures of it. The plants in this post are bloody skunk auto, this o e here is a Devil Cream Auto. Both strains are from sweet seeds.
