At what age should pruning be done in veg? If I prune my plants what would it make it do, grow taller, bushier, taller and bushier? Should I trim the old leaves or the newer leaves?Would pruning help increase my yeild?
Growing Slow as usual you have given some great advice. The only thing I want to add to this is that not all strains should be topped. Each strain has a maximum yield that it can reach and sometimes topping will mean more bud sites but smaller buds. On the other hand some strains have to be topped to reach the maximum yields. Blueberry is a great example of this.
I prune in veg and in the beginning of flower simply to allow more light to reach the lower bud sites. I havent had any problems yet. Some say if you prune to much you can cause your plant to go into shock. I've taken a considerable amount of fan leaves at once without any probs.
