Is it to late to defoliate? Well into week 3 of flower.

Perhaps just enough -to open up the canopy:seedling:?

I like to defoliate in waves. A little each time. Depending on the bud structure of the strain I will defoliate a little all the way until the 4th week of flowering.

I’m a firm believer in defoliation for multiple reasons. Your actually at a good stage in your grow to defoliate to allow lower bud site better light and space which allows for better bud development. Only remove fan leaves that are congesting or blocking light from lower sites. The less you remove the better but you may be defoliating lightly until the last 2-3 weeks from harvest. Garden looks good :+1:

Hi @ArticGrowGuy No it's not going to make a huge difference if you remove some foliage to allow more light
thru the canopy. Just don't go overboard with it and you should be ok. Sometimes a light trim allows more airflow thruout the plant eminating potential hot spots that could eventually lead to mold probs . :grinning:
