Should I be trimming more fan leaves?


#1

I’m at week 5 of flowering on a Northern Lights strain and am wondering if I need to trim down the fan leaves to expose more buds to light, however, I’m concerned not to overdue it or stress the plant too much. I have trimmed a couple times already

Be gentle but your answer is in the quote above. :+1: Clip evenly and only the ones that may be directly blocking a bud site. You’re in the same boat with my plant where it became like a bushy indica and you don’t want to strip all the smaller leaves. Sativas tend to be easier for trimming but can grow taller and lankier.

Yeah I’d trim the bottom crap up
