Usually, cannabis growers in order to make the growing space more efficient and obtain higher yields implement various techniques in their plantation; one of them is Monster Cropping.

You have heard about this method, haven’t you? Well, if you don’t know it don’t feel bad, actually this technique is relatively new, keep reading this post and find out what it is all about.

What is Monster Cropping?

Monster Cropping also called cuttings revegetative is a technique that consists of taking clones from a cannabis plant that is in full flowering and passing them to the vegetative phase.

Your girls will develop an unusual growth, extremely bushy, with many side branches and flowering sites, which will increase the yields of your plantation.

How is this technique?

Step 1: Trim your clones

To start with, this method it is recommended to take cuttings from your Mary Jane when it is in the third week of flowering. To cut them remember to use a sharp and clean blade or scissors.

Keep in mind that this type of cuttings do not have the same success rate when compared to clones from a vegetative plant, so some may not root. Because of this risk, when performing the Monster Cropping technique it is recommended to take a few extra clones in case things don’t go as expected.

Step 2: Wait for the clones to take root

When you have cut your clones proceed to place them all at once in clean water, don’t take too long to do this as you must prevent air from entering their vascular system.

You can apply a rooting hormone to increase the chances of your clones surviving.

Leave the clones in the water for a while and transplant them after you see root development.

Step 3: Revegetate clones

When your girls are ready to be transplanted you will need to provide them with a vegetative light cycle, you can opt for an 18/6, 20/4 or 24/0 period.

Generally, growers don’t worry about light intensity, as clones don’t need a lot of light to survive. Just make sure your girls don’t get stressed.

Final Considerations

It is important that you do this method properly if you want to get good results in your growing. Keep in mind that this technique does not work with all cannabis strains, it is recommended to do it only with photoperiodic marijuana.

It is generally recommended that this technique be carried out by expert growers, however, that does not mean that a novice grower cannot do it, if the steps are followed correctly, everything will most likely be a success.
