does it work? is there proof?

There are peoples diaries, I have diaries in my archive where it worked for me. There are youtube videos. All of the information is there for the reading. Just like mainlining, scrogging, vertical scrog - All pukka techniques with proof readily available.

The theory is there.

And in fairness we do it on the other grows. But again that is started early , and we carry it on right the way through until harvest.

If you do it make sure you use clean scissors. Don't want to give the plants some nasty bug!!!

Aaaah, Okay; Pruning, that's what I call it, never knew it had been re-badged! I remove all under-mesh growth and a goodly chunk of over mesh growth at the start of 12/12. I would say I remove around 75 - 80% of visible growth, leaving the top three to five nodes to flower. I think that's about it, Darwin, Mendel ~ you've seen what I do ~ is that about right do you think? I've never actually measured it in % terms, I just leave the top thee to five.

But don't follow me on this folks, I'm know for eccentricity and a dippie-hippie approach to growing my pot. Kerrryst on a bun, I even talk to my plants ~ how daft is that?! Given I hear them answering, its pretty dippie, dontchya thunk?

Given that you hear them, talking to them makes complete sense. Waste of time if they don't talk back I'd have thought.

In a few years it'll be call broccoli-ing or something anyway. Just another rehas of a tried and tested method being rebranded for the future generations. Just like marathons, and opal fruits.

I usually strip the lower halves before the 2nd week of flower but i continue to pick leaves off throughout that period. Never had any problems.

I believe its down to stressing out the plant to much.

Used to love armegedon...

Do it now lorraine.

Saves messing about when trimming and increases airflow.

The stuff your removing would never amount to anything in flower.
