Cucumber tendrils

I'm growing cukes in a pot indoors. Some of the tendrils have started to wrap around other parts of the vine. Is this bad? I pinched off the tendrils thinking it may cause suffocation on the other parts of the plant. Other than that I usually try to guide the tendrils to wrap around the trellis, and not the plant itself.

I've had that happen and have had no bad effects from it as far as producing fruitif you leave them. I don't like it when it happens. If they aren't to attatached without braking the tendrils you can remove them and place them where you want. I have had them break trying to remove them, but it doesn't seem to hurt the plant. Good Luck
