Almost two weeks ago I released a tutorial on Super Cropping and today I like to show you the results.
In this first image, you see the purpose of this technique, which is to level the canopy, although, this technique is also used to avoid proximity to your lamp in cases where you cannot pull it up anymore due to room or tent height limits.
On the right side coming from the stake and bending upwards reaching for the light is the main stem, and to the left, a little bit higher, a side branch from the same plant. You could play with the height of the main stem by pulling more or less the rope that ties the top of the stem to the stake so you could have the main stem at the same height that the side branch, am not that fussy once I have my canopy reasonably leveled
This close up is to show you the strength of Cannabis as a plant, that section of the stem is around 30 cmtrs long from where she was bent to the top of it, not only she has recovered but has managed to grow back reaching for the light , while flowering. Think that if she wasn't tied to the stake she most likely would be back to (almost) her original position
And here you can see how the plant reacted and healed herself, another advantage of this technique is that it suppose to increase THC production.
