    This is from a old thread but I was curious as to what happens when you top prune plants.

    >>>A not so healthy or deaf leaf will leak NH4 and amnio acids out.

    No, healthy pruning will not help algae, you are removing the oldest parts which have had the most time to colonize with algae.
