Should I prune yellow leaves in flowering stage?

Hi all,

Question for you all... I have an autoflower short early skunk which is growing outdoors in regular soil. The plant is only getting regular water and natural light. I believe the plant is about two weeks into flowering but has developed some yellowing on the larger leaves especially near the bottom of the plant. My question is should I trim these leaves and/or the branch to which it is attached from the plant? or should I just let nature do it's thing. There is also a set of two large leaves about a third of the way up the plant which are slightly obscuring the light from reaching a couple of buds. Should I consider taking off those two side branches too? The only thing I have read is that you shouldn't really mess with the plant after a week or two of flowering so I wasn't sure about whether to proceed with anything stressful for the plant...

Any advice appreciated! See photos attached.

Peace out
The Dude

Hi dude I would give the plant some food.

don't really see any benefit taking the leaves off at this stage.

When it's used all the food up in the leaves they tend to dry up and fall off.

If the yellow leaves drop vertical, then it would be a good idea to remove them.

Thanks @jacks_farm... I haven't really been feeding anything so far and it seems to have done ok. Should I change the routine by starting to feed now?

Are there any natural foods I can give it? I guess regular vegetable food or tomato food would not work? I did also read something about molasses...

Cheers

The Dude

Really like to do my grows on the lowest budget I can get away with, as this is not a cheap hobby and my wife loves to spend.

I would use 1 tsp of chicken shit in 5ltrs bottle of water , leave it overnight and shake it up and use that on the plants as it has everything the plant should need at this stage.

I often make up a hot soil mix so I  can just use water all the way from early veg to harvest

Dude there some great food out there for the plants like biobizz grow and bloom.

It cost a few quid but could give you better harvest.

That's the one dude,

when I started growing, I had some great results with the grow and bloom.

also its good to use some epsom salts and egg shells bits on top of the soil (wash the inside of the shell out and crush it up into small bits) slugs, snails really don't like it (cuts them to bits) and it helps to keep the PH in range).

Don't take off the leaves at this stage. It is useless.
