    Nutes after defoliation

    After an early flower stage defoliation, is it a good idea or nonconsequential to give a shot of veg nutes?

    Dunno but I can guarantee you it's non denominational.

      Oh, sure. I've got some good flowering stuff ready. I guess there isn't much recovery N would be useful for. Flowering nutes it is TOBone! You better be right, comrade.

        I'm always right jinger, you know that!

      yup...early flower should be lower on the nitrogen and higher on the P & K...defoliating won't change how she takes in nutrients unless you are feeding via foliar spray
      I hope there is an afterlife...there are a lot of friends and family I'd like to see again, one day.

        I know defoliation isn't about taking more nutes. I always figure recovery time after I do any sort of trimming and wondered if N would be helpful. As you people are helping me think, I'm over it.

      Never tried it, just fed regular bloom schedule. Why would you want to?
      Don't worry, be happy, grow sticky buds.

      I think it is a good question. I am a soil grower and usually follow a feed-feed-water pattern and I always feed on the day I defoliate even on a water day.. Not sure if it is superstition or science but I always feed when I cut them back and so far it seems like the plants respond really well.

        Thanks billyboy . When I mention recovery, I'm talking about all the open wounds after defoliation. Get me? Maybe an extra dose of N with flowering P-K? First nutes after defoliation, only?

          I just moved to adding Cha Ching (once a week after Beasite Bloomz in very early flower) and it is 9 - 50 - 10. Not specifically for defoliation but generally to get N better represented in the nute package during flower because I thought there was premature yellowing and I wanted to let the flowers have a longer bloom to get more amber. I never thought specifically about pushing N as a way to heal better from defoliation - I just guessed that if they were fed and healthy, they'd take care of themselves. Maybe Super Glue is the way to go - ? But I never saw any issues/need because they always seem to take off after a good trim

        Has anyone ever tried super glue to seal cuts or when a split node happens? It works on a cut on your hand. I may try it in a couple days when I chop; just for giggles. I wonder if it would transfer toxins to the plant? Hmmm...

          Just answered my question with Google. The answer is yes! People are doing it with all kinds of plants. Find a way to brace or hold the wound together for a week and it should be good as new. Ha, a new form of training...Stress with Gorilla Glue! LMAO!

          In school, we had something called Zap. It's a Superglue accelerant. The moisture in the stem might interfere with slower glue curing? In school, I mean architecture. We bought X-Acto knives by the pound for model making. Bottles of SG were all over the studios.

          IDK, maybe that's why they say a week. Super glue is usually bullet proof in 24 hrs.

        TOKABIGONE If I brace and hold a wound together, without SG, it will heal in a week.

          Yup yer right! Done it a couple times myself. It was just a curiosity thing so I looked and as I expected it is used often on larger branches like fruit trees when they split from weight.

        Even in flower, I give a small amount of veg nutes until weeks 4-5 of flower to help keep the leaves green as long as possible
