This week was just a fight to balance ph levels. They went up then they go down then visa versa. They are getting close. Just now started the flush last night. I already see yellowing leaves here and there. Nothing major, just baby spots here and there. Probably a couple more days and I will cut them down. Kinda mixed about it, but then again I get to start all over and maybe even outgrow these babies. I am ready to see how they smoke. Beautiful to me. They are frosty...

Grow Questions
OkieJim week 10 started grow question 4 years ago
Per defol, is it true the less budsites you leave after defoliation,(cutting smaller budsites and stems), the bigger and better your buds get and increased harvest weight? It seems like reverse to me...

Techniques. Defoliation
CRiSPrGrow answered grow question 4 years ago
hey man yes, basically for defoliation people over do it on the leaves which leaves the plant with less tools to absorb the light energy for photosynthesis. bad leaf defoliation can hurt yield, increase time to harvest, that sort of thing.... however pruning the flower nodes especially the little flower nodes that are located down the branch that will stay small, the so called popcorn bud, if you remove them early enough in flower , then this will force the plant to send the energy to the upper flower sites and these will get fatter, actually improving the yield. I hope this helps my friend ! i will follow and see how it works out for you ! :rocket:
