  1. Hi I have some small plants....... fairly uneventfull but they are begining to really bush out under the shade leaves.....

    I'm wondering wether or not to trim some of the outer leaves..... or not.... because i'm wondering if i do trim will i effectively stunt/suffocate my little 18 day old plants?

    i'll post some pics in a minute:devious:
  2. Train them.
  3. Leaves are the plant´s food factory - do not trim them, please.
  4. ahh - thought that was it..... cheers


    you mean that i should start bending them over and this will give better light penetration---- i wouldn't have thought of that

    cheers again
  5. Yup, just push those big fan leaves down very gently so that the blades grab onto other leaves keeping it down, as it grows youll have to keep adjusting it, but its much better than cutting.
