When should you defoliate for the first time?
The first time I defoliate is at the end of vegetative stage and right before flipping the lights. At this stage, you are shaping your canopy to be nice and even, and removing any large leaves that are shading nodes or are low in the canopy.27 thg 4, 2020
When should you remove fan leaves?
Fan leaves that are growing inward toward the plant should be removed. Bud sites that are lower down on the plant may be removed so that the plant can focus on the bud sites closer to the top. Dead or dying leaves should be pruned.8 thg 4, 2019

Can I defoliate in week 4 of flower?
How to Defoliate in Week 4. The best practice is to completely remove everything beneath the first layer of trellis. Even if it is a bud site that is flowering, get rid of it. These puny tiny branches will never yield anything worth actually trimming, drying and curing.10 thg 3, 2022
Can I defoliate in week 1 of flower?
Defoliation in flowering stage
Once after the first week of flowering: Wait until first pistils appear (not one or two, you must notice the plant has fully started to flower). Remove all the big leaves you reach with your scissors, and leave the smaller ones.
Should I remove all the fan leaves during flowering?
Yes, you should remove fan leaves during the flowering stage using the correct technique. Removing fan leaves will open up light and produce a better air exchange to the lower canopy. It will also ensure that more energy can go to your plant’s valuable parts and make for a bigger harvest.
Will buds grow without fan leaves?
Remember that fan leaves removed during flowering won’t grow back, and removing too many can throw off the plant’s energy balance, stunting bud development in turn.
Should I defoliate week 3 flowers?
One Last Defoliation at Flowering Week 3 ? Now that you’re three weeks into the flowering stage, do another major removal of just about all the fan leaves. Make sure to especially take any big leaves with long stems, or leaves that are covering bud sites! Again, avoid removing or damaging any developing buds!
What should my buds look like at week 3?
Week 3. Your cannabis plants have still not entirely stopped growing and will now be about 50% bigger than what they were just three weeks earlier. Although still stretching a bit, the stretch will now gradually slow down and soon come to a complete halt.
Do buds get bigger last 2 weeks?
In the last two weeks, the buds will mainly mature and grow no more in size. The white trichomes (small resin-secreting stalks/hairs) on the buds will now slowly turn brown.
Is it OK to trim fan leaves during flowering?
Yes you should ? but with the correct technique. A proper thinning will remove 20-40% of the mid to upper foliage every 5-7 days. Removing these fan leaves opens up light and produces better air exchange to the lower canopy.
What do I trim during flowering stage?
Pruning during flowering should be extremely light and limited. One example of appropriate pruning would be the removal of fan leaves that are shading healthy bud sites. The pruning of damaged, diseased, or dead plant tissue can be carried out throughout both the vegetative and flowering cycles.
