jayopp started grow question 4 years ago
Is it to late to chop off a branch? I have 1 bud site on a huge branch thats low down on the plant. I dont want to stunt growth or shock the plant at this stage.

Hi @jayopp! I'm afraid it's a bit late, pruning shouldn't be done after the 2nd or 3rd week of flowering, mostly because it may lead to new vegetative growth, but also because plants need a few days to recover from each pruning session. You don't want the plant to focus its energy onto recovering neither than new growth, so I'd recommend to avoid pruning now. Hope this makes sense, good luck until the finish line, and happy growing :facepunch:

Hi, i wont cut a hole Branch in that stage, the plant tries to reproduce and all the energy goes into the reproduing, than into the flower. But you can always tuck/pluck some (a few) leaves that block the light to the buds. Be gentle and eer 2- 3 dys a few leaves is ok most time
