Cutting leaves on seedlings

When you have a plant that you started from seed do you cut its leaves like you do clones when they start to grow?

What do you mean? I don’t touch seedlings until they mature. Don’t really prune except topping, remove fan leaves well into flower though

Again welcome to the forum
And don’t clip your seedlings let em grow
Shoot us some pics
The only time you want to clip em is when you are ready to top em or fim em
If this is your first grow I recommend letting them do their thing and don’t screw with em too much
Feed them and water them well and make sure they have a good environment to grow in
Again welcome and let us know if we can help

Thank you I’m sure you’ll be hearing from me

When making clones you square off the tips of leaves was wondering if you do that with small plants which were started by seed. I’m thinking that’s a no.

People cut leaves on clones to stunt leaf growth so plants direct their energy into growing roots instead. There’s nothing with it, but it’s also not necessary to do. A seedling will naturally try to expand its root base prior to growing, so not really any reason at all to cut leaves there.

It is your plant and you can do what ever you want
You have 5 nodes of growth and I know a lot of growers that top em when they are small like that
