I think I’m about 50 days old. Should I remove any more leaves?
Just curious. I’m not too too far into flower.
Just wanted opinions.
Thanks guys!

No way. Just trolling you back for trolling me mate. IMO defol is a long perpetuated myth. The more leaf surface area the plant has the greater the overall rate of photosynthesis. More light uses equals a bigger healthier plant and bigger plant means bigger yield

And I was just getting bored.

And at what point do eaves no longer contribute more than they consume. What is the needed percentage of productive foliage for optimal photosynthesis?

You opened the can show me how to use it beyond bait.

Wizzlebiz did a side by side grow that showed lollipop was better than defoliation or doing nothing:

The leaf is either a sink or a source. During growth the leaf is a sink after full grown it is a source. Even a dying leaf is only dying because the plant is transporting the nutrients out of that leaf and into other areas.

There is no such thing as unproductive foliage.
