Trimming off dead leaves cause stress?

This is probably a dumb question but will trimming off dead leaves cause stress? I transplanted 5gal to 7gal yesterday and am wondering if I should wait a couple days before trimming off dead leaves…dont want to overly stress them and end up with a hermies.

As you can see I messed up pretty bad with this grow and am trying to recoup for flower before they outgrow the tent.

The only dumb question is one that is not asked.

Should be fine trimming dead off. Can wait a couple days as it wont hurt.


No problem, with leaves - if it’s dead, dying, or diseased, it should be removed.


Thanks for the answers I appreciate it. I’ll keep this in mind if it happens again (hopefully it wont)
