Alright , my question is - should I lollypop or defoliate them in flowering stage? When should I begin to get rid of fan leaves ? On which week?
And are there any other techniques/trainings for them on flower stage/ late flower stage?

Thanks :)

Growing auto's I try to avoid taking off too many leafs. Just get rid of the ones blocking the light for your buds.

And next time maybe try lst. I just pull down my plant so the light hits every part of my plant. It makes all cola's grow more even and gives a lower but more bushy plant. If you want to see what I Mean just have a look at my easy buds or mistery seed diary.

Man to be honest with you despite how i am in love with defoliation, but you dont need it. For such small plants lolitop is not needed, but i would vote for that if i could see all you plant. Dark devil dont need no harm, just love.... ;)))
Look at my diary flower week 3. I had to defoliate, you can see theirs recovery photos aswell.

What worries me is your taco leaves. Quess your light is too close ...

I think doing a slight defoliation this early in flowering could be good and channeling energy to the budsites. And then i would defoliate a few weeks after flowering and then lollipop after the boost of flowering growth. Perhaps about week 7-8 for the 2nd defo. Happy growing

I won’t recommend any lollipopping. But you can plug off any big fan leaves that will cover a side shoots , and plug off any lil leaves that is laying on a another, to keep a good airflow . Particularly in week 3 of flowering
