Train your plants for maximum yield
One of the most important factors for a successful cannabis harvest is training your plants. By applying different training methods you can influence the structure of the plant and thus optimize the yield. Here are some tips for training your cannabis plants to get maximum yields.
Topping is a method of cutting away the top growing tip of the plant. This forces the plant to develop new branches and spread more widely. This results in a plant with more buds and ultimately a higher yield.
FIMming is similar to topping, except that only part of the growing tip is cut away instead of the entire top. This encourages the plant to branch out and produce more buds.
- Low stress training (LST)
LST is a method in which the branches of the plant are bent and secured to give the plant a wider structure. This allows the light to better penetrate to the lower parts of the plant and more buds can be produced.
A ScrOG (Screen of Green) system is a method where a net or screen is placed above the plant and the branches are guided through the net. This forces the plant to spread horizontally, spreading the light more evenly throughout the plant and producing more buds.
- Super cropping
Supercropping is a method of gently bending or pinching the plant's branches to promote the internal flow of nutrients and allow the plant to grow in the desired direction. This can lead to higher yields and better bud quality.
By removing leaves that hinder light output, the plant can focus more energy on growing the buds. However, this must be done carefully, as the plant still needs enough leaves to carry out photosynthesis.
Training your cannabis plants is an essential part of growing a successful harvest. By training and supporting the plant properly, you can maximize yields while improving bud quality. It is important to remember that every plant is different and training the plants depends on the specific variety and growth cycle. So make sure you choose the best training methods for your specific plants and their individual needs.
