Are you supposed to cut off or pull off suckers from the plant or just let it grow how it wants?
Hey High-Bred! Good to meetcha man. That's a good question. In the gardening world, a sucker growth is thought of exactly as you say. On a tomato plant, it robs the fruit of nutes and may cause too many fruit in one area for maximum fruit size.high-bred said:I have read the grow guide but I did not find adequate coverage on this subject. I know with tomato plants you're supposed to pull off the suckers because they consume energy and direct it towards leafing as opposed to growing taller and eventually flowering. Suckers are little branches that grow right where another branch connects with the main stem. Perhaps they are called something else when referring to marijuana?
