21 GROWROOM TIPS & TRICKS FROM THE PROS

 
 

SUPERCROPPING

Pinching, twisting and bending the tops of your plants are all forms of su­percropping. Doing this will benefit your garden considerably by preventing plant stretching and the waste of valuable light and space. Supercropping can be performed at almost any stage of a plant’s life, from well-rooted and established clones all the way into the middle stage of flowering (although bending is preferable to pinching by that time). If you haven’t tried some form of supercropping, give a few of these techniques a whirl and see which ones work best for you and your plants.

LIGHT RIGHT

One of the common mistakes that indoor growers make is to not maximize their light. Indoor gardens require a minimum of 33 watts per square foot—so, for example, with a standard 4′ x 8′ tray (32 square feet) and two 1,000-watt high-pressure sodium (HPS) lights, you would achieve 62.5 watts per square foot, thereby doubling the recommended amount of watts.

But if you don’t properly contain your light, you’ll waste it by illuminating walkways, walls, etc. You are not growing concrete or sheetrock; you’re growing plants—so it’s extremely important that the light pene­trate only the plants and not escape the growing area. The easiest and most cost-effective way to contain your light is to use white plastic divider walls, leaving a 2-inch gap from the wall to the plants. By doing this, you should see a dramatic increase in your yields.

THE ‘FOUR PS’

Plants that grow bushy with even branch­ing can yield bigger under artificial tight sources, producing consistent, dense bud quality from the tops to the bottoms of your medical-cannabis plants. Follow these “Four Ps” and you can’t miss: 1) Pinch out the central growing point on es­tablished vegetative plants to
