I am just wondering if it will affect my yield if I take some cuttings off my girls which have been on 12 12 for 8 days now or should I wait until I do my final defoliation around day 21 or will it not affect my yield by taking cuttings now and then doing my 3 week defoliation as normal . They are watermelon skittles and shishkaberry from barneys farm . Gorilla glue from seedstockers and white widow from Dutch passion

Taking clones / bud sites / will obviously affect yield, I have taken a few clones in flower before at like two weeks in and it did not stress the plant much.
But I'm not sure if you should do it now or wait at day 21 and defol at the same time. pros will chime in

When i took clones off my plants that were in flower i used the stuff i lollipopped off the lower canopy since i was throwing it away anyways it didnt hurt my yield as i lollipop every plant so what i lost, was actually a gain in the end.

It's probably better to take them now as the farther you get into flower the longer they'll take to root and the longer they're susceptible to disease and possible failure.

Sorry I'm more curious if you think the plant will decrease in yield due to stress of TAKING CUTTINGS NOW AND THEN DEFOLIATING on day 21 . Either way on day 21 I will be defoliating and removing a few branches as my canopy will be too full by then I just wondering if people think the plant will do better only being damaged/stress once

Preferrably you should b taking them before you flip and taking those lowest branches off that dont grow into anything special..i cant see it hurting yield or much stress if you take the lowers.i do this before flip and into flower and doesnt slow them down one bit..if they have pistils you will basically have to wait around 4-6 weeks to reveg back and will b monster crop cuttings..i guess you know that..

You should be fine to take cuts at day 21 when you defoliate, they may take a little longer to root and then you will have a good 4 to 6 weeks of reveg and then they will grow wild. Your plant should also be fine to take cuts at day 21.
