Title says it all. Would you defoliate these plants? I’m on day 21 today and always cringe when I take leaves. I have been doing selective defoliation, but, think they may benefit from a heavier go at it. What do you all think? Thanks!

no, looks like your getting good light penetration..
that subject will create too much confusion for you, you better make a choice..
i don’t unless i absolutely have too, which usually there is no reason.

Penetration looked good to me as well. I’ve always done selective defoliation and can’t wrap my head around stripping almost everything. Though, some of the larger growers and breeders alike do it. Thanks man.

I never understood why people veg so long they have to cut all the leaves off and get a lower relative yield than they would if the plants were flipped a month earlier and not stripped.

I flipped these girls when they were at the screen. Did not expect nearly as much stretch.
