To trim or not to trim?
    #409928 - 05/01/10 12:23 PM (6 years, 7 months ago)

Hey guys,

My white widow seems to be doing fine and all and about 14 inches tall in (most likely) the last week I'm going to veg her.  The problem is the massive fricking fan leaves seem to be covering all the bud sites.  They look healthy but I've seem some contradicting evidence in a couple of threads about if and where I should take them off.  Let's see if we can get a general consensus going.  What do you guys think?

Cheers,
Arachnospore

400w HPS but due to heat issues have to keep it about 2 feet away from the top of the canopy

Yikes, 2 feet away is quite a bit for a a 400watt.  What kind of hood are you running??  Can it be cooled? 

But now to your question.  I leave my fan leaves on.  The reason being, to me, is taht these leaves are providing the energy your plant needs to grow and produce big buds.  You don't try to more power out of your house by taking off solar panels, if you had them obviously.  So why would you take them off your plant.
