  1. Anyone strip all the leaves off a plant right before flower so it gets more light can breath?

  3. I have done it before when growing outdoors. I live in a cold, wet, short season environment, so some seasons it is necessary to strip all foliage to avoid mold outbreaks. I do not advise doing this indoors unless you have a specific reason for doing so. I see no reason to purposely damage an indoor plant other than for shaping and top/fim reasons. Science is science though. Sometime we need to learn the limits/needs of our plants on our own. Might be a nice thing to try if you have an extra plant all vegged up.

  4. I myself think it slows the growth for a while after doing the trimming but if you have the time when it comes around there will be lots of new growth
