thats the question lol. whats peoples thoughts on this form of growing, does it help or hinder, is it best in veg or flower or both anybody got any insight to this love to know what the man himself thinks mr kushman 🙂
Just my opinion but here goes.
Unless there is some damage to a leaf, I never take them during veg.
Same for the first few weeks of bloom.
However, I do go through and take some of the larger fan or shade leaves later in the flowering cycle to ensure the light reaches the lower buds enabling them to grow and harden more.
About two weeks before the end I usually do a pretty heavy removal of the fan leaves to let the light hit the buds better.
mostly I agree..unless you have mass overgrowth, which i sometimes get with my mothers …wanna keep them neet and such..I try to never trim anything unless its dying or has mites on them…a week into bloom I go threw and remove lower branches and nodes that might hinder the upper branches of bud size…depends on amt of light you can offer your plants..more light per plant..less trimming necessary….toward the end when the leaves are turning yellow..I will pick a time to remove 90-100% of them til harvest…its better to remove as much as possible all at once rather than remove leaves/stems every few days…less shock to the plant…
You guys are GOOD….
Selective leaf pruning is used to remove larger INNER pointing leaves that cover several budding sites. It’s best to redirect useful light to rapidly growing, newer shoots. I also like to remove every leaf that has a stem by pinching at mid-stem around two weeks before harvest. This helps mature lower and inner flowers…:-)
ive always been one only to remove in veg for more air flow in dead air pockets youd hate to get some powdery mildew right? but only in overgrown stocky plants. i remove about 1/4 of the bottom of the plant usually and clean out most of the first half of the branching at the beginning of flowering. in a personal lillipopping method. doesnt hurt my yield just forms those big colas = )
Im one that also believes in selective leaf pruning. Dont be scared, give it a shot. You’ve got to learn the language of a plant. Experiment, study and learn, knowledge really is power. To be a True Kushman SuperCrop Master you must learn the art of selective leaf pruning ~~~;-D
Once inner pointing leaves have become large enough to block light from many other growth sites it’s time to remove them. Removing a single inner leaf from each upper branch opens the plant to more light. It’s just one of my SUPERCROPPING techniques…:-)
I only save about 18″-24″. Don’t see a reason for keeping anything that doesn’t receive light below the canopy.
I agree, your bud canopy should but no more than that…:-)
