Hey guys just looking for some advice on defoling during flowering, I have two ak47 photos on the go right now and they have a very dense canopy. Could do with a huge haircut to my eyes but im not to sure as im at day 26 and do not want it to herm 🙁

Any advice would be appreciated as this is my first photo grow and the whole "herming" prospect really freaks me out haha 😂

Tuck your fan leaves in, under, somehow out of the way. Tuck, tuck, and more tuck. That's the name of the game. And Hermies happen for a lot of reasons, just don't be scared, just keep your eye's open for them. They can be dealt with.

But since this is your first photo grow, just let it grow. It will be ok, and you will learn lots. You can do more fancy grow stuff later. Simple is better. Being patient is KEY. Good luck. 😎         peace

For what it’s worth, I would defol the large fan leaves by pulling any that had a purple pedial. Do a light defol to one and you will see the difference by week 5. Light to the bud sites is essential & more air flow reduces the chance of mold later on and also increases yield. If lower bud sites are shadowed by leaf it will stay that way until harvest just pull them out of there.

@nzfadez yeah don't defol in flower if you can avoid it. One or two leaves won't hurt but it is never just one or two lol

I feel like a, like a slice of butter... melting on top of a big-ol' pile of flapjacks... yeah.
