trimming top leaves
Posted 12 May 2012 - 08:55 AM
I was wondering if it is okay to trim some of the top leaves on a SCROG grow to expose bud sites, Im growing super iced grapefruit and they are 4 weeks into flower.
Thanks in advance for any and all replies.

Would you cut the legs off a long distance runner, to reduce air flow or whatever?
Leave them leaves alone!
Good luck with your Scrog. I do a modified sort of half-scrog. Wouldn't do for most folks, but I likes it

I think I ll leave it as is in that case, I totally get what your saying I just thought it looked a bit congested in there, apart from that everythings looking lush, Ive actually suprised myself with how well things are going as this is only my second grow and my first SCROG.
Again thanks for your replies.

I use a screen with 3inch x3inch squares.
I only let shoots grow from where the wires cross and all fan leaves get left on and pulled below the screen.
At day 14 of flower I cut all shoots back to the lowest bud site. Don't remove fan leaves till they wilt[mostly let them fall][I have done fan strippin before but they don't yield, leave um on].
Thats how I do it any how.
I got 21oz off a 3 very old sativa dom jack herea last grow in 1m2 under 600watts.

Think of the leaves as solar panels mate that feed the flower and not the other way round as some seem to see it.

I removed some leaves during vegging of my LA Con, but this was to encourage the lower branches to grow, as they were completely shaded out and had stopped growing. I ended up getting my bottom branches to grow and come level with the tops by removing them.
There was a topic on this before where I think it was Godspeed posted some pics of his grow. He was doing a sog and removed all the big fan leaves twice during flowering and ended up with loads of sticks completely covered with bud, right to the bottom.

The plant has the leaves for a very good reason so its fooking pointless and damaging to the plant to remove them unless you are taking the under carriage out early on to encourage top buddage.Which sort of blows another horse shit bit of advice into the communal fable bin,
