Fan Leafs Vs Sucker Leafs

This is probably a silly question, but:

Will someone explain to me the difference between a fan leaf & a sucker leaf ?
Purpose and necessity ?



Sucker leaves will absorb more energy than they produce. Usually leaves that are completely shaded and receives no light. Some people will remove these but i dont mind them unless they are large.

I always considered a sucker leaf what they left on our stems with buds and seeds back in the 70s…lmao. not much manicuring was done. 1 folded branch in a baggy and we were tweaked for the buds.
