Hi DGC gang,
Brand new listener turned new member. I have been binge watching past episodes and learning so much. Thank you so much for providing all the great info and looking out for the community!

Now to the question:
Doing an autoflower run this time and decided to do some light LST to even out the canopy a bit. Plants took well to it and are loving life, but they are getting very bushy. What is your opinipn on defoliating and training Autoflowers in late veg. I’m entering week 4 of veg soon and expecting to see some stretch and preflowers soon.
