  3. yes

    def remove fan leaves to give buds more light.

    I remove all fan leaves that catch light that could be gotten by other parts of the plant.

    the buds should be green at this point with leaves of their own, which are most likely darker in color, meaning they have more of a use for sunlight.
     
  4. i DISAGREE LEAVES ARELIGHT CATCHERS AND SHOULD ONLY BE TUCKED NOT CUT..I SAY YOUR PLANT IS GETTING LESS LIGHT ENERGY THE ABSORBERS ARE GONE!!IMO:smoke::smoke:
     
  5. I would avoid pruning or other stress factors while flowering. I do prune lightly during veg but I prefer to tuck/tie leaves out of the way and utilize LST to maximize the plant's exposure to the light.
     
  6. Nahh dude, dont cut any leaves off. The leaves are the things that absorb light energy in order to produce big, healthy buds. If ur worried about letting the leaves/buds get light i would suggest hanging/mounting some CFL's in and around your plant. Do you have any pic's? that would help
     
  7. Tuck n' tie as first options.
