Isn't super cropping similar? After super cropping, the damaged branch grows back stronger right?

You know, some of these "little tricks" aren't so little after all, they can make HUGE differences. Love it !

Great information all, thanks. I might try splitting next grow. The folks that taught me to use a trellis net (a "little" HUGE thing) also recommend splitting.

The Panama Indians did this to the extreme and some say it's how Panama Red was created... splitting the stem causes stress and their plants reacted with Red stems and into the buds.

Another thing they'd do is dip the stick in opium before putting it thru the stem. but yeah, it's a form of stress during flowering and done right the plant reacts in a positive.

Supercropping: I do this to all my plants. It can be as simple as pinching each growing stem to pinching, twisting and even breaking branches to control height. every break causes a knuckle to form and once it heals above it takes off like crazy. Soma really covers it in his grow book...

Y'all go ahead. I'll watch and keep the knife away from my girls stems.
I read up on it and I'll pass.

Looks dangerous to me. Fulvic acid(a type of humic acid) has worked well for making denser(aka heavier) buds for me. Looks like you grow well but if you have a plant you are prepared to sacrifice if things go south, it is always good to learn by ‘doing’. I super crop as some others have commented on here but do it because sometimes some stems grow too tall. I never noticed any difference in the bud quality though some people have.

edit: because autocorrect is my nemesis and changed ‘humic’ to ‘humid’…

Looks risky, and probably results in stabbed fingers. Maybe it just needs blood to improve the yield...
I did and it ended badly

There are a lot of ‘tricks’ in growing. Some are ‘treats’. Some are ‘razor blades in an apple’. My brother heard from someone that carbonated water would help his plants. The theory being that plants need CO2. I am not a biologist but I know CO2 is used in photosynthesis thru the leaves not the roots. In addition to that I told him he would likely screw up the pH of his soil(he is growing organically and low pH and CO2 would likely kill the microherd). I believe that would have been a ‘razor blade in his apple’ though I couldn’t say either way from experience.

When I started growing weed in my home, I knew nothing about it. But thanks to the Internet, I found a lot of useful information about it. It was especially difficult to find the right lamps to speed up growth. But I found amazing lamps at an affordable price; you can find more info. Growing marijuana at home is very profitable; most importantly, you can smoke pot anytime. I think marijuana should be legalized worldwide because it is a good product that positively affects people.
