Mistakes to avoid in cannabis training
Written by Redacción Mota Radio on 25 November, 2020
In the cannabis growing there are several methods that you can carry out to obtain better results in your plantation. One of those techniques you can put into practice is to train your cannabis plants.
Training is one of the best ways to boost the yield or productivity of your growing. However, if it is not done properly it can have harmful consequences for your plants. Look at this post and learn about some mistakes you should avoid when training your cannabis plants.
1- Removing the wrong leaves during defoliation
Defoliation is a technique that consists of removing certain leaves so that the light reaches all parts of the plant.
With this technique, one of the most frequent mistakes made is not knowing which foliage to remove. The ideal is to remove the leaves that have the shape of a fan. Don’t make a mistake by removing the sugar leaves.
Also, make sure you do this process at the right time, if you do it when your plants are too young they will be damaged.
2- ScrOG errors
ScrOG, or green screen, is a training method with which you can obtain impressive harvests, but it is ideal that you have enough time to carry it out, because it can demand quite a lot of work.
This technique consists of installing a mesh on the top of your plants, when they have a certain height, and then adapting the growth of the plants to the mesh.
It is ideal that the mesh that is used is well assured; otherwise, it could fall on your plants and ruin them.
The mistake that many growers make is to think that they only have to install the net and that’s it. On the contrary, you must train your plants as soon as possible by applying techniques such as topping. It is also ideal that there is adequate air circulation.
3- Training old plants
When applying bending techniques to your cannabis growing, make sure the plants you use are not too old.
Older plants tend to have hard branches and are much less flexible, so they tend to be more susceptible to breakage.
