thinning and big leafing
The gnomes have been busy thinning and big leafing on the flowering plants in the greenhouse. We do this when the plants are 3-4 weeks into flower in order to remove any branches that aren’t in an optimal position in the canopy. If a branch is stunted in the shadows of the lower canopy, and can’t receive light energy from removing fan leaves, then this would be a branch we would remove. This allows energy to be diverted to the branches that are kept on the plant. This is an easy way to direct the plant energy to obtain nothing but jar quality morsels.
