    Health and timelinea are the most important variables.. not healthy, leave it alone.. waited to long, wait till next time... auto breeders would be not very smart to say HST this plant... photo breeders, no prob, a longer veg cycle wil lfix everything..if you dont try you will never know.. whats works for my setup is not what will work for the next person....

    Firm believer in defoliating. I take a leaf or two every other day. Never have seen an issue with regs or af... but every grow(er) is different. To each their own, no right - no wrong, we do our best, now pass the bong.

    Well I am glad I just read that because I under fertilized in Dutchmaster Coco and my plants look shitty, I don’t want to overdose them with nutrients and burn them. I am a hobbyist using professional media (. I’m using AN PH perfect grow. I keep reading it’s bufferd , but what does that mean?. One of my last plants (nirvana blueberry) hermied and these are the seeds from that plant. I didn’t know the seeds would do as well as they have done. I’m trying to thin out but it’s hard now that they are flowering, what would you guys do? would you leave them or throw a couple outside? they are under fertilized. I’m at that critical time where if I take the shitty ones out the Good ones will fill in. My questions are has anyone used this “ph perfect technology”, And will it shock the plants introducing a new “non ph perfect “ bloom fertilizer Like the one pictured.(cutting edge 3. Part) My tapwater is 92 TDS ph 7. 3x3 with 600 hps gallaxy ballast sun systems huge reflector. Dtw 8 ml gal, ec 1.3/ 1.4.

    I say defoliate over time. Not all in 1 go, autos cant take stress so to much defol can stunt overall growth from my experience.

    This is the hardest decision I've faced thus far: to defoliate or not to defoliate...that is the question...

    And if so, how much. And when?

    We're still in veg right now so I'm waiting to see what the plant's structure looks like naturally in flower, as it's my first real grow and I don't quite understand how it all works yet. I'm growing a Sour Diesel Auto in a Solo Cup (18 oz.). She's not very tall but getting very bushy with lots of undergrowth on the nodes that's shaded by fan leaves. Part of me is scared to remove ANY bud sites or leaves because the plant is so stinkin' short & small to begin with...and the other part keeps thinking about the purported benefits of lollipopping & mild defoliation (redirecting energy to the top buds, allowing light to the lower canopy, etc). Problem is, I don't know who's right & who's wrong! Too many dissenting opinions on this issue.

    Guess I'll just go with my gut. Thanks for the helpful firsthand experience, OP. Very few guides deal specifically with autos so this is great.

    Is everyone claiming autos can't take the stress only because they've read it? I defoliate a little almost every time I make another bend for LST and never noticed stress.
