Usually the defoliation in flower should be done around week 2 or once they stop stretching. You don't want to do massive clear late in flower as some strains are not stable and might hermie. You can of course start earlier. I start clearing slowly from the very bottom from week 1..just removing bits and bobs here and there. Once stretch is over I get it done.

I just cut off big leaves that cover up potentially big tops, and the leaves that make my plants look ugly before I take pics so I look like I know what I'm doing.... unless I have a real problem I'm trying to fix then I take pictures with the nasty bits on.😉😋

Their looks to be lots of fattening up in that yet @omgBoNg looking at it from here, they will put up 30% on in weight last few weeks. :)
