    Should I clip the bigger leaves as to let more light pass through to the lower buds?

      Hey buddy. I have taken this information from the GWE website.. this tutorial. Worth the read if you get the time. Good luck Cannabis Defoliation Tutorial To Increase Yields | Grow Weed Easy

      Cannabis plants seem to spend the most energy on buds which are exposed to light, and those are the buds that grow the biggest and the most dense. I believe that’s why buds hidden from view and in the middle or bottom of the plant never seem to fatten up – they don’t get enough exposure to light and air.
      Why Defoliate in the Flowering Stage?
      • Helps prevent mold and bud rot on indoor plants by reducing humidity inside the plants, on the leaves and in your grow tent
      • Bigger yields – buds that are exposed to light and air fatten quickly and produce bigger yields than buds hidden from the light and air.
      Who Should Defoliate in the Flowering Stage?
      • Growing indoors with bright grow lights
      • Your plants are healthy and fast growing
      • Your plants have been hardy their whole lives, without problems
      • Your plants are so leafy that leaves are laying on top of each other, OR
      • Some buds are hidden from the light by large fan leaves (example below)
      Who Should NOT Defoliate in the Flowering Stage?
      • Your plants are unhealthy or slow growing
      • Your plants have given you problems during your grow (they may be too sensitive to respond well to defoliation)
      • Your plants are not leafy – if you can see through the plant to the other side, and/or if light is making it to the floor under your plants, then you probably don’t need to defoliate
      • Buds are already exposed to light and air (buds are not hidden by fan leaves)

        Well depends. Here's what i had to do to see if it's a good idea to remove leaf. Without a photo with this post i went back to look up your grow info. It showed 3 plants close together for a group photo? All is see are 3 young plants close so unable to say from this post.
