Removing loads of shade leaves Dont

I am in the unfortunate postion of having black flies in such abundance on my plants that I used a hydro store bought chemical to kill them and save my plants. The problem?


I had to double dose the plants and the second dose basically wiped 70% of the upper shade leaves from the plants. This in effect robbed me of some glorious buds by hindering the growth of the plant and producing buds 50% smaller than what they would normally be.


I guess the rule of thumb applies here...everything in moderation...


In general I like to trim a very small percentage of the planys to allow light to filter down...this usually accounts for about 5-10% of the total shade leaves and Ive never had a problem.


Unfortunately my plants look like nagasaki did after the bomb....everything with the exception of some scrawny buds is desolate......
