Do you have a rule of thumb to decide which leaves can go? @Myfriendis410
I look the plant over and try to create ‘tunnels’ through the plant where air and light can penetrate. I also bias toward removing lower leaves before any upper ones. If you haven’t supercropped yet; now’s the time. That is a good yield improving technique and done right strengthens the plant.
I futz with mine too!
Just over listening here…I’ve never foxed with super cropping - do you have a link to a good tutorial? I get the concept but when is the proper time to do it?
Just do it behind closed doors and wash your hands when done LMAO!
I know you like a good SCROG growmie!
I did some supercropping in the way that Jorge Cervantes called “plant chiropractic”. I broke the inner fibers of most of the stems but I did not bend them in a different direction
If you do that you spread the footprint of the plant out. I always supercrop.
I tried to do some defoliation, I’m in week 2 since the flip to 12/12. I can’t decide if I should keep going or not?
Looking really good if you ask me!
I agree. Nothing wrong with stopping there and doing more in a couple of weeks.
If plant is still pliant; do some more supercropping, or LST with ties to open plant up before any more leaf removal. I agree with the above.
@Myfriendis410 if I do supercropping in week 2 after the switch to 12/12, will each node still have time to stretch up?
Do I try to super crop as many branches as I can? Or just the tallest ones to even out the canopy?
I’ve never tried the supercrop but I’m trying to learn the ins and outs. I would like to try at some point
@Myfriendis410 I tried my best at super cropping and I used some plant training clips to hold them down. I hope I did ok…
Nice, I have a bag of those bends but hadn’t used yet.
Looks good. Im just learning too but I bend everything. All my colas are scared up lol.
Just took this shot for you.
See how fat the knuckle grows and becomes a super highway for nutrients and can hold up bigger colas.
Looks great. I bend, crop, and pinch though 2-3 weeks. After that they start to get too stiff to do much with.
I think every strain is different in how they stretch. I had a WW that didn’t stretch much but a PK and this SD went crazy after the second week going straight up.
Happy cake day @spyonyou
So true. I have left some a bit later than that and some strains are very hard to bruise and bend. Lots to learn.
