Trimming and Cutting Back Pre-Flower

Discussion in 'Advanced Growing Techniques' started by Konos, Sep 12, 2009.

  1. I have been discussing with a friend about the benefits from cutting back and thinning out sun leaves before flowering. I think this helps the plants receive more lumens over-all, allows for the other leaves to receive more energy from the main stems and branches, and most importantly gives you a bunch of cola's at the top that at this point will grow much healthier and will receive a ton more nutrients.

    I am thinking that it will not only benefit the yield of the plants, but also the quality and density of the buds as well. I have heard a couple different ways.
    -Leave all the leave let the plant bush out and just trim up the bottom.
    -Thin out most of the inner and smaller lower leaves/branches, and send all the nutrients straight to the top.

    Would be nice to get a couple other opinions on this, but as of right now I am leaning towards the thinning out process giving me more control of the shape of the plants.
