Hello and thank you for any advice. I have two different autoflower plants growing in an Areogarden Farm XL. They have been growing since April and one of the two has fallen significantly behind the other. The larger one has now taken over the entire grow tent crowding the smaller one allowing very little light to get to it. Planting these two together in my small tent was my rookie mistake. Lesson learned.

So, my question is this...is it recommended that I cut back the smaller one so that the nutrients arent wasted on an underperforming plant? I am reluctant to pull it out because of how the root system of both plants is entwined.

I won't make the same mistake again and appreciate any help.
