    This should be a Sticky in my opinion, well said, Muddy :) Got an Ultraviolet going at the moment and am going to push it for as long as possible - she's pretty green still for her age which must be around 70 days by now (listed as 72-75 days). There are some auto strains that yellow all at once from one evening to the other, and others that transform into yellow over time but yeah, I agree with you, and keep them going for longer than I used to.

    A healthy plant will go a bit longer and show yellowed leaves later on. If you're seeing them start to yellow at 10 weeks it's likely your plants could go 13 weeks. Once yellowing starts it will continue. I think yours will be showing a lot of yellow at 12 weeks.

    I understand you must use a translator.

    I think your question is about removing yellow leaves.

    Only remove when they are brown and dry.

    Not to remove fan leaves, why?
    Is it because of stress of pruning plant or less leaf area for photo synthesis?

    they are simply a natural notification sign that the plant is done, and the energy from the leaves goes back into the buds. the buds are better and heavier if you wait.
