Grow Journal of the Month: Dec 2017
So I find a lot of sativas esp outdoor will drop the massive leaves in the mid summer. I don't take them off but the abundant sunshine provides more than enough sun. Then the new growth is usually all thin and razor like. They don't skip a beat. I've had issues before and if I'd defoliated my plants would have died from leaf drop. They will tell you what they want to do.
I got started growing Sativa always thought cannabis lost leaves mid-way thru. Then noticed thats not the case with Indica as much.
I grow them side by side. The Sativa "leaves" a lot of mess pretty much the whole grow, even after chop I'm still sweeping up dried dead leaves.
Also I notice the size of the stalks on the Sativa plants are HUGE in comparo.
So now if my leaves are NOT dropping I get worried.
I always clean up the low down laf on my ladies gear.
They thank me later.
The Sativa always grow more. Thats where the s33ds are. lol
