    Pruning fan leaves

    My indoor plants are 4 weeks old and vegging nicely. Wondering if I should remove the big fan leaves.

    Generally speaking, as you give zip info about your grow, 4 weeks may be a bit early unless they are autos. They should still be using the glucose from those leaves. If you plan to train them by any method wait until then unless they over lap and draw moisture. As you may begin to see here there are many variables so explain and show pics so we can give intelligent answers.

      How many nodes are there?


        Just remember fan leaves are responsible for absorbing light and light = food (and added nutrients are vitamins)...they are the solar collectors. most growers opt instead to train plants using LST or manifolding (photos only).
        I hope there is an afterlife...there are a lot of friends and family I'd like to see again, one day.
