  3. I can tell from the overall health of your yellow leaf that your plant is probably in good health. If your plants lighter green feed her. It's natural from them to have some yellow leaf when their eating and growing at the pace they do. Just pluck it off and happy growing!

    Personally I try to leave the leaves alone until they fall off by themselves. I don't like stressing my plants (even a little) and if they get just a little bit of nutrients from it then that's all the better. But it's looking good, nothing to worry about IMO. Maybe hit em with a little Nitrogen if they are still in veg or early flowering. Kudos on your grow, you're well on your way :)

  6. I agree with @JWM2 that you should just let them fall off. Although I don’t have any real evidence to back this up.

    I read the book True Living Organics, and the author believes that since mobile nutrients are still being pulled from the lower (yellowing) leaves, and transferred to the buds, that you should leave them on until they fall off on their own. Maybe just a theory, but sounds good to me!

    That’s what I’ve always thought too. Once the plant is done with them it’ll kick em to the curb ;-)
