Yes but for example CP#3 doesn't need much defoliation. Week 3 of flower is ideal for a good defoliation. Only remove what seems to be necessary but not any more. It's best to remove a leave here and there than to over defoliate and create a significant change/stress to the plant. At this stage of flowering you will have significant growth still ahead so pluck away :+1:

@NAG420 hi mate yes you can remove some of the larger fan leaves to allow light to penetrate further into the plants canopy. Also by doing this you will allow more air flow thruout the plants which is very important
to eliminate potential hot spots that could lead to problems later on. Hope Ive helped Mate
