Morning Tokers πŸ˜‰

Im not 100% sure how much fan leaves I should trim off my grow . Just new to the community and have been growing just a couple of years.

Ive just recently started my first auto grow and it’s on 2nd week of flower , have a nice canopy but would like to know if it’s safe to remove fan leaves,Β 

The plants tbh seem healthy and thriving so have been cautious to remove the fan leaves, have removed some but how much % can I remove .


thanks for the advice .

Fed up Skin up ..

@timmytoker77 Hey Mate, best to be careful at this stage removing too much as it can trigger excessive stress if you are not careful. I usually wait until the stretch is over before I remove anything, I will sometimes take some pre flower to open some of the lower sites up and stretch but that's rare. For now I would be waiting till the stretch finishes then see if any sights are going to be impacted, then I would still see if I could tuck that leaf first before cutting it off. I like to leave as many on as I can since they are the solar panels converting all that light into energy for bud development. Just my two cents with autos Smile

I feel like a, like a slice of butter... melting on top of a big-ol' pile of flapjacks... yeah.
