Marijuana growers usually seek to increase the yield of their growing, therefore, they implement various techniques and tricks to meet their goal.
So that you too can get the maximum amount of flowers possible from your plantation, we have compiled a list of tips that will surely be very useful.
1- Opt for larger pots
One way to increase your yields, whether indoors or outdoors, is to choose the right size pots.
The larger the containers, the more space your plants will have to grow, so you will be able to obtain a more abundant harvest.
2- Increase the light intensity
An alternative that can help you improve the bud production of your strains is to increase the intensity of the lights in your growing room.
Keep in mind that lighting plays a very important role in photosynthesis.
If you increase the light intensity in the flowering stage, in other words by using higher wattage bulbs or more lamps, you will probably get a great harvest. Just keep in mind that your electricity bill may also increase.
3- Grow in hydroponics
With hydroponics, cannabis plants can grow faster and more vigorously, as well as offer abundant harvests.
It is always important to make sure you provide the right environment for your plants. Also take into account that this alternative will allow cannabis growers to control the plant’s nutrient levels more easily.
4- Apply the defoliation technique
If your intention is to increase your cannabis harvests, one method you can use is defoliation. This technique consists of removing certain leaves from the plant in order to increase air flow and light penetration into the bud. By removing excess foliage, you can redirect the plant’s energy to bud production.
It is important to cut leaves strategically, not haphazardly. The fan leaves that produce shade are the ones you need to remove. Remember to do it at the right time.
5- Use tutors
Tutors are an ideal tool to support marijuana plants and help them grow more vigorously. Also, these instruments work to prevent branches from bending or breaking under the weight of marijuana flowers, strong winds or frequent rains.
Using tutors can offer you many advantages, one of the most attractive is precisely that it favors the increase of bud production.
6- Train your plants
Training a cannabis plant is one of the most used ways to manipulate its growth. Generally, growers do it because they want to obtain enviable yields.
There are different techniques that you can carry out such as SOG (Sea of Green), ScrOG (Screen of Green), among others. Each of these methods, when done well, can improve the overall yield of your growing operation.
