Defoliation in Flowering?


Edited: Nov 9

What are your thoughts on defoliating after the plant has been put into flowering? I have a Northern Lights & Dieselicious that are 2 weeks into flowering & they are already pretty leafy (especially the Dieselicious). I’ve read that you don’t want to do any pruning after a certain amount of time in flowering.

These look real nice, nice job on those. Don't look to bushy to me, mabye a couple but not many. I'd try tucking the leaves blocking light to lower tops.

I typically defoliate 2-5 days before flipping to flowering. Then when in flowering, I evaluate growth and defoliate again on days 7, 14, 21, and 45. It all depends on growth though. Sometimes I only defoliate before flipping to flower. Sometimes I defoliate before flipping to flower, on day 7 and 21. Sometimes I only defoliate on day 21. It all depends on growth.

  • How closely should I be following this schedule with northern lights?
  • hi is it normal for my runoff ppm to be around 1200 and my ppm going in is about 650...also my ph going in is around 6.0 and the runoff ph is around 4.6....I’m trying to avoid a lockout so I’m feeding half strength.... i flush after every 3rd feeding..
  • can one really tell if a plant is a Male or Female just by the number of fingers of each leaf ? i have noticed that in some plants that are Male they seem to have 9 to11 fingers to each main leaf and that the current Female plant i have going only reached 7 fingers maybe one leaf had 9 -- but seen mostly between 5 and 7 on my current budget grow at about 40 days and yes in flower as well - and lost track of the total days in flower so i hope that by Christmas or New Years i should have a good idea of what is what so MR Grow it what is you thought on this ? and anyone else have any thoughts if its possible to tell just by finger count on leaves ?
