i feel it would be better then cutting them off completely , but the only time id do it is when cutting clonesso what are your feelings on box cutting fan leaves in combination with tucking for example and not removing any?
I'm not trolling, b0b is the knowledge around here and I'd rather be with the information than without it. All I have is my personal experience and what's posted on this forum and if they conflict or differ then there's reason for discussion so the group as a whole gains. Forget what happened earlier, that's buried and I was able to voice my opinion and left it there. I know Epic has absolutely killed more plants than I've thought of growing because I've heard it here. I take AFN's word for it because you all have always pointed me in the right direction and the information given has worked, so I trust the group consensus.The OP asked the question, If he wants to challenge Epic that's fine it's his thread..but to any one trolling Epic well that's A violation of the rules....The mans killed more plants then you'v probably grown.............
I've seen you say you've proven this very thing before and I just wanted to know what the proof was. 'Nuff said' made it sound like it's open and shut and that discussion was pointless. I feel like anything I say to you right now could be interpreted as trolling so get the troll spray ready. Thanks for sharing your knowledge, I really have gained from your posts. Peace.it did appear like you came in to troll gbd , maybe due to the earlier drama , im glad you havent though
i may be outspoken and blunt , but im also honest , and i only post where i know what im talking about , you dont see me posting in the led section/threads do you , thats because i have no/limited experience with them
i might be harsh at times , its because im very passionate , but im also experienced due to mistakes and improvements over the years , i try my best to help others avoid the mistakes ive made
when i say "nuff said" its due to either ive already said it all many times already so i dont need to say anymore , or just simply because ive said all i need toI've seen you say you've proven this very thing before and I just wanted to know what the proof was. 'Nuff said' made it sound like it's open and shut and that discussion was pointless. I feel like anything I say to you right now could be interpreted as trolling so get the troll spray ready. Thanks for sharing your knowledge, I really have gained from your posts. Peace.
have you ever grown outdoors ? if so have you noticed the plants that get eaten by deer etc do not do as well as the plants that somehow got lucky enough to of not been attacked ?"Growing in small spaces with powerful lights and different mediums to recreate only the positive natural conditions in a more intense way to produce more bud faster."
That was the basic description I read somewhere about what indoor growers are doing and having become a leaf trimmer by necessity rather than desire I'm always wondering what would have happened if I left it alone in my small space. Some day I'll have enough smokes in reserve to get the smallest possible strain of plant going and just let it do it's thing but until I can I've come up with a few questions I've not been able to find answers to;
1. If canna plants have evolved and flourished over the many years they have existed could they still find it beneficial to recreate natural cropping of their fan leaves by animals? Deer have been observed to avoid cannabis plants they have previously eaten the leaves from, possibly due to increased resin production by the plant as a natural defense mechanism which I found quite interesting.
2. Would this apply to autoflowers if it was true, i.e. are they at all different other than their sensitivity to light? I FIM'd and topped my NL Auto scrog (first grow) after much deliberation (totally due to my noobishness, letting it get well out of hand and panic!) and though I got a fair haul in the end I still keep thinking what if I hadn't?
3. With the legalization in some states in the US allowing much more scientific research specifically for cannabis to be funded and the advances in lighting/heat allowing more people to grow in much smaller spaces should we all be more open minded to adapting our methods as new results come in? I'm finding it interesting checking out commercial hydroponic urban farm growers who have switched to led recently, there is a lot of info out there on how they have adapted to the new lights and are now getting the yields back up to what they did with HPS, having used the financial resources they freed up from energy costs to research and develop nutes/heating/airflow and loads of other stuff. There's a ton of information out there that we can use but it's mind melting trying to find it amongst the google crap lol.
So I'm not trolling here, the first two are proper questions and the third is a question and an opinion in one, cheers!
