Should I remove these monster fan leaves from my other plants? They are as big as my hand but that also means they’re awesome solar panels too right?

there is quite a bit of new, light green growth below these monster fan leaves with big thick veiny purple stems.

The fan leaves take in co2 during photosynthesis. But in veg when you remove them they grow back. Its about growth in veg once you get to flower you work on the fruits of the plant. So week by week you take a handle full of leaves off so the fruits can get plenty of light.

Definitely do not be in a rush to remove them. But the older big ones must go. It will also prevent pest build up and prevent low air flow to the buds and plant.

Ok perfect thanks guys.

So here’s another level to the question.

For this plant. It’s a solo cup contest. 10 weeks of veg. Not touched once. It’s a total bush... what the hell do I remove/keep now?

Ok I removed those big monster leaves. There were 4 per plant. The 2nd and 3rd node had them. They were old and massive.

scared to tackle the solo cup. Not sure what you mean with me needing a ruler? I know what an inch is... and does it need to be that precise? I might be misunderstanding you. Not only does it have a lot of fan leaves but about 300 tiny shoots branching off everywhere.
