First off let me say its awesome to see how this site has grown sinch I've last logged on (2007). Now to my question I just want to here peoples feedback on triming lower branchs while in flower to promote healthier growth on your main cola/colas.This has been a debate between me and all my growing buddies since I can remember.I personally was just letting my plants go propping them up when they needed it etc. this is the first year I actully did it and I feel like they have slowed down ever since.

I do not trim while in flowering either. There is NO doubt that this stresses the plant. And I do not believe anyone is going to convince me that stress while in flowering is a desirable thing. IMO (and that of many botanists) stress is counterproductive to great bud/thc development.

it depends on the size of the plant. you have to get all the under crap as soon as possible when flowering starts. some under stuff tries to grow back but i personally keep cutting them. they eventually die anyway or just strech around for light. so yes on big outdoor plants i do cut out the underbud. it doesnt make a big difference(stress wise) on larger plants
