The technique is known as “main-lining” has gained some popularity among cannabis growers because this method allows increasing the yields of the plantation. In addition, it is not usually complicated to carry out.
This is a training technique that combines several growing methods, including LST (low-stress training) and topping (apical pruning), to radically alter the structure of the plant. The goal is to achieve higher productivity, even in relatively small spaces.
Is it ideal to apply this technique to auto-flowering strains?
After learning about the many advantages that the main-lining method can offer you in the marijuana growing, it is normal that you think about applying it to your plantation, and there is nothing wrong with that, just make sure that the strains you are planting get along well with this technique.
You have to keep in mind that it is not advisable to apply this method to auto-flowering cannabis strains because this type tends to grow very fast compared to other strains, so any stress caused by apical pruning can affect the size of the harvest. Your girls would not have time to recover.
Apply only the low-stress training (LST) method instead, if it is compatible with auto strains. This is a technique that is ideal for increasing growing yields and making the most of available light.
