Like everything isn't it strain dependent though? I have one cut that will hermie if messed with too much during flower. I basically have to get her completely popped and ready a week before stretch and leave her alone. If I start plucking and cutting off branches she will let the boys out

It is strain dependent. Also you want to do most defoliation and lolly popping before flower.

If you have a sensitive strain then you may just want to leave it alone during flowering.

Sativas may not need much if any defoliation. Indicas can definitely benefit from it as removing large fan leaves will open up budsites and allow more light to reach lower branches.

Lolly popping helps the plant to concentrate bud growth to main cola(s) and larger branches, not wasting time on larf.

not based on experience but based on what i read you let the leaves grow until its flowering because leaves are where they get there energy from. But once it starts to flower clip them.

The plants love those fresh leaves that compost back into the soil as they contain exactly what the plants looking for.

I agree with the observation that NLD defoliate themselves, and NLD tend to hold onto the leaves and are always in need of some trimming and pruning

Im about to take a class with a local mentor who knows his stuff at the local extension oldtimer head real knowledgable. Ill report back
