Hi guys, second grow here.
Do buds sites need light? I have read (on other websites) that they do. From what I understand, the flowers grow bigger?
On the other hand, if there are less leaves then photosynthesis is not taking place as much? However, defoliation, especially around bud sites seems common practice to get lights to the bud sites.
I defoliated quite a bit the plant at the back and the one at the front not much at all.
Low stress training on both of them.
Vegging for 4-5 months on both plants. Around 9 days into 12/12 light cycle.
Back plant has a 10 gallon pot, front plant a 15 gallon. Grown in osmocote organics plus and powerfeed pink.
