How many weeks into flowering can I remove fan leaves that are covering bud sights, without harming the plant?
thanks in advance

id say no earlier than 6 wks... but that is of course unnecessary... if they are fed correctly about 50% will eventually fall off themselves and the plants themselves will move nutes from the leaves into the bud if they again have been fed correctly and allowed to cycle into its flowering production with reduced amounts of N...
dont those fan leaves eventually become food for the plant if she consumes them then she needs them

i have both trimmed some fan leaves and left others..But Id only start when shes fully into flower and not needing them. The leaves were bright yellow and drooping some just came away when the leaf was touched, for the most part, they are now useless. The plant takes energy from them to build buds, so you can either trim them close to the leaf or just wait til they curl and pluck em. It made no stress on my plant, i didnt remove them all at once, a few here and there as needed, but some were done for more light to lower buds. Now most sugar leaves are startin to turn also. But just wait til she s established and dont trim alot at once. u should be ok?
Dont trim any mate. I either tuck them away, bend them out of the way or leave them on. The plant needs those leaves at this important time so why rip away the food you have been carefully feeding all through its veg stage? If a leaf wants to come off it will fall off. Leaves are the power station for the plant, why remove the solar panels from which the energy is derived from.

Stupid, stupid Nature! for putting those stupid leaves in the way of the light!
Buds are the result of the light hitting the leaves, not the buds.

Again, light functionality.
Light is reduced by 1/4 for every foot you get away from the light. Why remove a leaf closer to the light and absorbing more energy in favor of lower leaves further away.
If the plant doesn't need the leaf, it will shed it. Give the plant what IT wants, not what you want.
i only remove fan leaves if ther discoloured,yellow ect,so the plant puts effort into the flwoering rather than the repairing of leaves
my thery is fans feed stems and stalks
an are not needed after stretch is over
sum plants start to shed them like 1/2 through flower
why not needed
my thery is only leafs around buds and in the buds feed the buds
an if you notice i have startd both phrases wit my thery
i have also done a side by side -removed fans at 1/2 way through flower
and i saw no diff
i suggest all try this
an see for self
