Remove cannabis fan leaves to increase yields advanced grow technique:
Once they get established ,about 8" 2 a foot I top the main node,and pinch the leaves at the same level.Once the two new branches appear and have three new nodes each I top them also and any other branches coming up also.And a few leaves ,the upper ones ,so light can get to the lower growth and cause it to grow up with the rest of the plant.Once this grows back in,I top every thing in sight and strip all leaves except for a few,very few.and bend the upper branches out and down ,so to let more light into the lower branches,the plant begins to have a nice big round look to it.
The reason for stripping the leaves is simple BUDS COME FROM BRANCHES NOT LEAVES.The plant will grow without tons of water drinking,sun blocking leaves.This works best if you feed them really good with Elanors VF11 lawn food 35-85-55 and superthrive and miracle grow azaela food 30-10-10.the branch growth will surge without leaves
trust 35 years of experience.The idea is to devolop a cycle let them bush ,strip promote branch growth,let them bush,strip promote branch growth.
this is an advanced technique like the forum says.so practice on 1 or 2 plants until you see the method of the madness.Dont let anyone tell you this wont work

On a basic and understandable level: chloroplasts are those areas on the leafs surface that react when photons from the lamp hit them and split C02 molecules, the more area the more chloroplastic reaction...a basic energy exchange then...light hits leaves splits c02 and the process of cell division eventually starts. For a full enzymatic and chemical breakdown I recommend a basic plant or phisiology text as its too long-winded to detail here
These Solar leaves are rich in sugars and nitrogen compounds, to remove them is to remove an excellent source of these...I dont do it for this reason, it makes no logical sense. When the leaf falls off I remove it, not before. You can remove a big fan leaf, and sure there are smaller ones...but they are not as efficient in their storage or availability factors when compared to theose Solar leaves.

think of an apple tree. if you picked off every leaf that appeared on that tree during the spring and summer, do u think you would have any good apples? plants are all the same, they have leaves that soak up sun rays to produce buds, fruit, blooms, and whatever. does fruit soak up the sun for food or do the leaves on the tree do it? im guessin that if u leave the leaves on it will make your buds better since theres more leaves to eat up the rays, just think of it as many mouths. how bout this? someone grow a plant and strip every leaf off see what happens. just leave the stalk and see if any buds grow, they will get max. light then
