Is it a bad idea to remove big fan leaves in the canopy during flowing? Should it all be done before flowing stage has begun?
There’s a few things to consider. How many weeks are you into flowering? Cutting one fan leaf won’t be a problem, a huge haircut could be an issue. This is my go to guide if you’re at three weeks or less and you should be ok, fan leaves only.
Go to the section of this guide titled “ Flowering Defoliation #2 (Last Major Defoliation) – Week 3 of Flowering Stage“
Hope that helps!
Great response @Azuri!
I agree with Nebula, but would stress caution for newbies. To quote your reference material…“Each leaf provides energy to the plant, and I cherish them”. I recommend starting slow, you can’t put them back.
I’ve read his guides multiple times and his advice is solid. I’m also a fan thanks to you and the AG community with the site below, a wealth of info too.
I trimmed the hell out of mine lol. I think it turned out fine lol
