  1. I have a couple of strains that produce HUGE leaves.... I mean these suckers are like 8 - 9 inches long and 3 inches wide. damn.... Anyway, this is during Veg. I also have several of these flowering under a 400 hps and I'm thinking I could get better light to the bottom branches in both phases by trimming the huge leaves that are growing from the main stalk. The leaves on the branches are a nice wide indica, but not enormous like the ones on the main stalks (I also top several times during veg and usually get 7 - 9 colas!!!:D) So.... WTF?
  2. dont trim, when you go into flowering the buds take sugar from the leaves to produce food. the more food, the bigger da buds.

  3. i found that moving the leaves or pinning them back works really well. just gently bend them out of the way or pin them back in some other gentle fashion.
