Marijuana Training Techniques

Growing marijuana is a fascinating undertaking. Not only is it a cost effective way to supply your own first class weed, it is also an amazing way to learn about how plants develop.

One of the most interesting aspects of growing marijuana is the huge range of growing techniques that are available to you. You don’t have to stick to just one either. Many marijuana growing techniques go hand in hand with each other, delivering multiple benefits.

Sea of Green (SOG) – This is the Dutch method of creating a small ‘sea of green’ heads by using methods like topping and cropping. Screen of Green (SCROG) – Another Dutch method similar to the Sea of Green but using a screen over the heads. Great for compact growing. Topping – This is all about splitting one kola into two, two into four and so on. You can get amazing results. Fimming – Like topping but even more intense, get this right and you can go from one head to four! Low Stress Training (LST) – Using a combination of topping and then training to de-stress the plant and get the most of the light source to grow. Lollipopping – Create a lollipop style plant by removing foliage at the base to promote light and growth Super Cropping – This is not a pruning technique but more of a stress test on your plants to create bigger yields. Monster Cropping – A relatively new concept that works very well with SCROG and SOG concepts, you can crate all kinds of heads with this method.

KIND LED Grow Lights – 12 Band Spectrum So why would you need to do anything other than let your marijuana plant grow naturally? Well, you can if you like, and many, many thousands of marijuana growers do just that. However, having a good understanding of how a plant works allows you to manipulate them to suit your own particular needs.

At is most basic, plant manipulation is about managing the plant’s energy resources. By directing energy to the parts of the plant where it will do most good, and avoiding wasting it in functions that are unproductive to you, you can maximize the particular qualities that you are seeking from your plant. You may wish to do this to create bigger buds, or to strengthen stems and branches, or to promote more vegetative growth.

The concept is about redirecting energy to where it is needed most, as well as making best use of the light source that you are using.

Desired Strain You may wish to grow a certain strain that lends itself well to a particular technique. For example leggy sativas with heavy lateral branching are perfect for SCROG systems. Space Restrictions The amount of space you have available can help dictate the methods used. For example, if you are limited by vertical space then a SOG system or some topping may be the best solution. Plant Count If you are restricted to the actual number of plants you can grow then it makes sense to grow big plants with long veg periods and lots of buds. LST or Monster Cropping can help you to grow truly massive individual plants. Yield Whether they are commercial growers, or just people who like to have lots of weed, some growers like to get the biggest yields in the shortest amount of time. SOG systems, combined with a good cloning set up, is one of the best ways to achieve this. Stealth Growers who appreciate discretion might like to keep their plants small, especially when growing outdoors. Topping and LST techniques can help keep plant size down. Fun Of course, it’s not all about production. Growing weed is a fun thing to do. Most growers love trying out new ideas and new systems just to see how they work. All growing techniques help you to learn more about the amazing marijuana plant. Go on, try something different.
