What is cropping cannabis?
1. Super cropping cannabis is a high-stress training technique (HST) that maximizes your indoor garden’s canopy footprint. A wider canopy footprint means bigger yields and beefier buds with denser resin glands. It’s an easy technique that can give your plants a new lease on life.
Should I remove fan leaves in veg?
Here’s what to look for when planning to remove fan leaves during veg: Fan leaves that are growing inward toward the plant should be removed. Bud sites that are lower down on the plant may be removed so that the plant can focus on the bud sites closer to the top. Dead or dying leaves should be pruned.
Are topping plants worth it?
Whether you grow indoors or outdoors topping your cannabis plants helps to produce a bigger and better yield, which is every grower’s primary goal. It is a tool that helps to control the overall shape of the plant – by redirecting the growing tendency from vertical to lateral.
When should you Lollipop your plants?
Lollipopping is a high-stress growing technique used to increase yields. This technique is named after the way the plants get shaped like lollipops after being pruned. This technique is most effective when it’s done 2-3 weeks into flowering.
Is Monster cropping good?
Monster cropping works by causing the clones taken at the flowering stage to re-enter the vegetative stage. It is considered efficient because growers using this method do not need to maintain a mother plant, which typically requires more resources, space, and light than younger plants.
Does Lollipopping increase yield?
Many growers have increased yields by lollipopping. We know enough about plant science to support the logic behind this type of pruning. What’s even cooler is that you can combine lollipopping with topping or fimming. So, early in veg, you can do other types of pruning to increase yield!
How long does it take to recover from topping?
Healthy plants usually take 2-3 days to recover from topping. After topping, do not remove the leaves from that node as these are needed to power growth of the branches from that node. Never top during flowering as it causes too much stress – which slows growth and inhibits yield.
Is Fimming or topping better?
Topping marijuana plants is a technique where you cut the central apex of the plant off to help encourage lateral growth. With fimming, you can encourage bushy growth in your plant and increase your cola yields. Fimming is considered more of a training technique.
When should I upgrade DWC to lollipop?
Lollipopping is only just the beginning of improving your yields with pruning and training techniques. Many indoor growers incorporate this technique after topping in the very early days of the veg cycle and installing a SCROG.
Can you clone from a leaf?
Leaf Cutting – In this type of cutting for cloning plants, the leaf blade itself is used to create a new plant. If the plant you are growing has particularly thick leaves, you can cut open the veins of the leaf and plant it flat into the growing medium, making sure to keep the cut leaf exposed to light and moisture.
