Like said before it ultimately comes down to preference, to lollipop this late into flower where it has already formed alot of buds like that would most likely stress out the plant. you could use other methods to get light to the lower spots like if there are leaves blocking light don't be afraid to try and bend/tuck the leaf out the way. You can even bend a branch a little out of the way if you want to give any area below that its blocking light from, just be gentle. Personally I try to lollipop a week or 2 before flower and at the latest like 2nd week of flower. and if it is that late start with a little to see how it reacts. but once it has developed decent size pre-flowers/flowers I personally wouldn't touch it. Just try to get the whole plant as much light evenly as possible :+1: Hope it helps. Keep On Growing On!!

Hi, Iam no big Fan of Defoilation. I always pick/tuck single leaves that block the light to the flowers. And i put away all small branches and tiny leaves/ flower at the bottom of the Plant. If you dont have big humidity issues i wont defoilate. But its always your descision. Remember, everything you take away, the plant tries to reproduce. My Light have a very fgood light penetration, so i only have to take away a few leaves. It depends also in your setup/ the Humidity and how bushy the girls grow

This would come down to preference , you could lollipop your plants to try and get some light to the lower bud sites but I would be very cautious in doing so now being as you don't wanna stress out your plant(s) to much . If you're going to try this method I advise you start slow take a few leaves here and there wait a few days to see how the plant reacts then repeat this process if you need too . Generally people will train their plant(s) and lollipop them in order to achieve an even canopy before they start flowering , this is something you might wanna consider for your next grow . All in all you can do it later in flower just take your time and observe your plant(s) for signs of stresses , if you get signs of stresses just stop for a while let her recover and try again . I hope this information serves you well on your journey to becoming a grow master ! -Happy Growing!
