For a few years now - the boss (Mr GreenJeans) has been pushing me further and further in defoliating my plants in the second week in flower. Basically leaving the tops and stripping everything else off. I hav found that this decreases my popcorn and waste and increases my cola count and size/mass. It has proven at least for me that it works. Below are some pictures of some Lemonberry I just defoliated Does anyone else out there aggressively defoliate??
