I’m heading into flushing in a few days. Can I start defoliating my auto plant now to have less trimming work at harvest? Prior to this I only LST my plant

Hello ! Yes you can ! If you'r planing to flush soon then you can remove all the fan leaves without harming your plant or your yield. And if you want less work after the drying process then you can also wet trim your plant just before harvest , if you are lucky you will even get enough scissor hash to make a spliff. I hope it will help you :grin::+1:

@lezhonka yes you can especially if your goal is less trim work. Keep in mind this will also cut dry time down :+1: full disclose and food for thought:. A slower dry and cure as well as leaving some leaves on as 'trichome protection' - (trichomes change composition "degradation" rapidly once cut from plant via light (UV) and air (oxygen) - will lend to what I will refer to as the "3 S's" 'smoother & stronger & stickier' end product. Either way totally your call and it's looking great !:smile:
