When you say "just starting to flower" do you mean you are going to change to 12/12 or you're a week plus into 12/12 and your starting to see flowers form?
Right before flower I lollipop everything up to the last growth tip and remove any branches I don't think will make it up into the canopy. Following day I switch to 12/12. If i'm growing a stretchy OG or similar I lollipop after I go into 12/12 to slow down the stretch.
I follow up after the stretch, day 21 usually give or take, defoliate and clean up any new growth below the canopy.
