Hi everyone . Just thought I'd introduce myself as the pot smoking, dope growing lesbian from British columbia, canada. I'm Just waiting for my first outdoor crop to come down . I grew a beautiful HAWIIAN STRAIN. The plants are soaking up all the sun they can get. Just wondering if any one knows whether it is better to take off the giant leaves in the budding stage or if it is best to leave them on. I've been told to leave them on and take them off. One frind said to leave them on because on cloudy days the big leaves draw light in for the plant . The other friend said to take them off so the buds can draw more energy from the sun themselves. Pleeease someone point me in the right direction. I want my babies to grow up beautiful. Thanks you guys for any help at all.
