1st year grower here and I've been extremely pleased with my grow so far. I have 10 plants that look to be about 2-3 weeks into flower (first small buds popped yesterday!). My question is, I did well with my LST and defoliation during veg but I still have some growth towards the bottom and was told any low hanging branches that don't reach over 50% of the height of the plant should be cut. This is an outside grow so I'm not overly concerned about height but I also don't want to end up with a ton of small popcorn buds. What's everyones opinion on trimming up lower growth this far into flower? Do I run the risk of more damage than good? Should I do it now to increase yield?
Appreciate any insight.
