Well I definitely wouldn't say I need the space right now. I do see everyone's point on depending on grow,plant,ect...This grow has been challenging to say the least being my 2nd indoor grow ever. Lots of yellow vegetation,scrappy buds,& even hermies tho after checking for days pollen sacs have went away. But all this has had me second guessing pruning where normally I'd take leaves without 2nd thought. I think should I remove this to maximize bud growth or should I leave outta fear of stressing plant back to hermies. When met with problems tho I tend to overthink things,lol. You guys have given me alot of useful info. The one good thing about messing up is having knowledgeable growers in my corner!Almost every grower that says defoliation is a must or they are always doing it run a crowded room and or bushy plants. And the growers that say not to do it or the leaves are the solar panels or whatever like space around their plants or have plants with great structure that dont need it.
I say its a tool to be used when needed.
