Hey @bakedhippie!
Nice setup and nice looking plants man.
I personally do not trim many leaves off during flowering - as the plant will not produce many new leaves due to it concentrating its energy on flower production. Only time i trim leaves off during bloom is if it is directly blocking a bud site.

Anyway, Nice grow! I will be following along and look forward to your harvest.

Thanks! @irie lion I have only removed those leaves blocking buds. I'll probably get some laughs (if not outright guffaws), but I trained these 2 plants much like training trailing African violets. I pinched them then as soon as new shoots started I pulled them down and out to open the center creating more upright growth from nodes along the stem. The more crowns or growing points you have the greater the number of flowers presumably.

Awesome! Yes that is a very popular training method, works like a bomb! Supercropping they call it.
You've sure got plenty bud points.

One thing i do during flowering - is remove small branches below that will not break the top canopy and therefor only make popcorn bud - cutting those off sends more energy the your bud points receiving plenty light.

Thanks again @irie lion I have taken a few cuttings in week 3 of flower that I've rooted. I read somewhere they make huge buds by restarting the veg stage, we'll see about that. There are quite a few small branches that won't break the screen for sure. I also have a small White Widow auto in a 2' x 2' x 4' tent that I pinched before I knew autos should not be pinched. I figure it should be ready about the 24th.

Hey @bakedhippie the plants are looking good - it seems your lady has been pollinated unfortunately. Are you growing any males nearby?

I have a small White Widow auto in a 2'x2' I'll harvest today or tomorrow. I don't see any sign of seeds. They were all three in 2x4 until mid March.
