Trim small interior branches


Active Member
Do you guys trim the smaller interior branches that don't get much light during flowering? There's some tiny buds trying to form on those. But I question if trimming them will let the plant put more energy into the good areas of light.

I do. My belief is you get fewer but slightly bigger and better quality buds. I prefer that rather than more smaller buds, many of which are popcorn (and a pain to trim).

Yes. It will put more energy into the bigger buds. But I try not to trim too much after the plant has been into flower for three weeks. Only if I really don't have the choice.

I do most of my pruning of branches in veg and the first two to three weeks into flower. After that, it's only leaves that get pruned. Easy does it for me. Trim a few every once in a while...
