Hello

I'm growing a mini hana f1 cucumber plant. she's 25cm and healthy.

It's my first time growing cucumbers and when pruning her I've been looking out not to pinch off the tendrils, however she doesn't seem to have any!

Im confused! Do all cucumbers have Tendrils?

Welcome!

25cm is pretty small yet, even for a mini cucumber. It is likely too young to have tendrils. (I have seen cucumber with few tendrils, and cucumbers with many. But every cucumber I've seen has some.)

Curiousity question: Why are you pruning such a tiny cucumber? What are you cutting off?
