removing lower bud sites/lollipopping?

  1. Hey guys, I'm not sure Lollipopping is the proper term.

    either way just a quick question on if you guys remove the smaller/lower bud sites like the one I've circled in this picture?

    First time trying LST/manicuring

    its going pretty good so far.

    I feel like I could/should remove some more fan leaves? 20190808_221709.jpg

  2. I remove growth from the lower 1/3 of the plant - any branch that won't make it to the top canopy gets removed.
    Good luck - nice looking plants.

  3. ok 10-4 Mick,

    I think I'll go ahead and remove some of those lower bud sites. I'm about 5 days since the 12/12 flip

    do you generally try to have all of the trimming done before flower?

    thanks brother

  4. Usually but I strip them in the first part of flower.

    I do it at the stem. I generally make clones from these.

  5. I remove most of the growth during the beginning of flower.
    Good luck.

  6. Update:

    thanks for the help/advice @MickFoster

    I went ahead and removed a fair amount of the lower growth/fan leaves/bud sites that didn't look like they would really amount to anything. here is how things are looking right now. any input or tips welcome.

    Like I said this is my first time trying LST and trimming, I've always just let the plants do there thing up until now. filled about 1/4 grocery bag

    check it out!
