Confused on technique

Continuing the discussion from Living soil, I know you people are here so chime in!:

forgot to write something before posting. am wondering about doing a little trimming of some fan leaves. the bottom ones are not doing any good and some of the upper ones are shading some of the secondary leaves and am thinking of sending them into flowering next week after taking a few leaves off.

Thays completely up to you. I would try to tuck or do a little LST

I wait until day 21 in flower: do a heavy defoliation and one more at around day 45.

If the leaves are changing color, decaying or look to be dying remove them! It’s better for the plant to remove them

i took a few from the bottom that were looking bad plus a few that looked like they were just in the way from light getting to the new shots. i’m going to try and start them to flower after the first of july. i’m a gardener but this weed growing is kind of deep to me. i will be grateful if i can get a few buds out of my first indoor grow. but thank you all for the advice, wiil follow as best as i can.

am not familiar with what LST means.

a few of the leaves look a little bad from the burn they received at the beginning, i took a few of these off.

Low stress training growmie.


Here’s an example. I get my lst clips from Amazon. It helps get more colas by breaking the main apical dominance

I use binder clips and yarn to pull mine down. Hey! It was what I have on hand until I unpack everything.

I also use binder clips with electrical wire on the bottom limbs and LST clips for the top

After LSTing your end result will look similar

I tend to follow @Myfriendis410 way of defoliating. I am in the losta fans camp. I prefer to clean up a little after stretch. I know where she is going and which limbs are going to produce. I remove the weak stuff and keep a lot of good fans. Especially on autoflower. Photo i veg into bushes.
I have an if its brown it comes.down on leaves. Always dieng off throughout the lifespan of the plant. Just my style. Many here. Living soil.

Its really pretty simple. Ph is a watch. Other than that most nute lines are easy to follow. Temp and humidity ranges are bigger than you think. Remember its a home grow and perfection is tough to achieve. If it looks good…it is good.

plants are doing good, getting the white pistils thats been noted as verifying female. plants have 12 and 10 sets of branches. i think the potting soil is going to take me to harvest. put them on 1/4 pint of flowering nutes a week. they look really good to me.
