    i think i may have cut off too many of the leaves or a few wrong ones.
    i know to cut all of the leaves that are 3 to 5 already but thats it.
    i have 3 plants going and all are about in the 2nd week of flowering.

    I cut off my fan leaves only if they are blocking other potential buds from getting light. Or if they are yellow. Other than that leave all the green leaves.

    I'm not 100% in this but I've recently read that you are not supposed to cut off the shade leaves (the big ones that stick out) because they absorb light and make sugars (T.H.C). I'm pretty sure that early in the flower stage you should cut only the lowest branches and leaves because they don't get enough light to produce good buds. Then the plant can use energy on the top buds and make them bigger. If you post a picture, maybe a more experienced grower can help better. Either way I wouldn't freak, just give it time and see how it comes along.

    Good advice. Thats what I kinda ment to say. Only cut them if it is blocking light from a bud. Other than that the plant needs them.
