I see a lot of threads with folks
asking about cutting fan leaves because of overlapping
fan leaves, or fan leaves shading bud sites. Tuck one
leaf away, and an hour later it has popped back into
place. Tucking leaves is a never ending task!
use a simple paperclip to clip a leaf set together by
the leaf stems to let light hit the secondary branches.
This technique works good in veg and flower.
Start doing this early in veg (around two weeks) to keep
light at the nodes to promote the secondary branches. By
the time you are ready to flower the plant, all the
secondary branches are even for a nice canopy.
