Zanto started grow question 4 years ago
I made low pruning 10 days before flowering stage. Now I want to make another because the low leaves are not getting enough light. When should I do that? Thank you.

Right before the stretch

before the end of week 3 of flowering
as long as it's growing you can still do it and still have good results

hi mate! you should not do it now that plant is at flowering stage. Just remove some lower leaves and that's it. Hapy grow!

Pull the big fan leaves , up until the end of the grow to get more light into the buds :+1: Also pull anything that you know won't be worth keeping .

well i am an Always Be Pruning kind of guy especially with LST as you end up with many colas competing

that being said the traditional answer is before flip, beginning of actual stretch, after stretch. then if youre feeling like you have too many leaves, later on during bulking so that the bud sites get plenty of air and light

I’m not sure if this answers your question or not but I’d remove the lower leaves in order to have the plant focus it’s energy on the tops that seem very nice and even

3rd week of flowering.

Personally I would not defoliate until day 21 of flower, you could stunt the pre-flowering phase. Plucking lower leaves doesn't really serve any purpose, on the other hand, they let you diagnose early deficiencies .

Short answer is whenever you want. Especially if they look fully recovered from the last pruning (which they do to me)
