Lower small bud sites, trim?

Do people usually trim these to allow more energy for upper growth? Cant imagine them producing anything worth while

Some do, some don’t. Can you post a picture of the whole plant(s)?

Im almost 4 weeks in, someone said trimming this far in would hurt the plant and stunt growth because energy would be spent repairing the trimming.

No your good…
I’m 4 weeks in on light flip and still taking clones from the undergrowth… :wink:


It’s called monster cropping and I’ve been taking clones at 3 weeks since light flip …
And they are already rooted…

Yeah, I’d clear out at least the lowest stuff, maybe the bottom 1/3 or so.

Really… you have enough light to feed the whole plant at this point…
Bottom might be a lil larfy… but should still produce…
Maybe lower your light a lil bit…
Next time , figure out a way to scrogg your plant…
Lots of wasted light there…:wink:

Just what I was going to say…as long as you’re getting light to everything, that’s the main thing. The trick is to optimize the footprint of light that your fixture makes, training the plant to that shape.

At this point, anything budding low down that just shows a couple pistols, should be trimmed off. It won’t get enough light to ever fill out. You know which ones I’m talking about right?
