my plant seems to be overcrowded and to bushy due to low stress training that its blocking quite a bit of light, should I and Could I trim a few fan leaves???? or any other suggestions would be appreciated thanks.
I used to trim lots of them off but, I noticed that they would grow right back. Besides, unless the plant is real big... you don't want to pull too many or you interfere w/the plants ability to make energy through photosynthesis!
What I have been doing a lot of is just tucking the bigger leaves that I want moved under another leaf or branch, this get's enough light to the inside to make a difference while not giving up any vegetation.
Haven't really needed to do it indoors so I am primarily speaking in terms of outdoor plants... but you didn't specify either.
I can't say I saw much difference in the two techniques, I think you would be fine pulling a few... just don't go crazy... peace out!
