Supercropping is hands down the most productive training method that is not reliant upon tools or advanced cannabis cultivation skills. Bare hands and finesse are all that’s needed.
Should you snap a branch or main stem and find yourself with a gaping wound instead of a soft pliable bendy shoot don’t panic. Keep that duct tape handy. Patch the wound with a swift field dressing and be more careful with the next branch. Cannabis plants are very resilient and after approximately 10-14 days the wound will have healed enough to remove the tape.
As suggested, supercropping involves causing high amounts of planned stress to your plant to provoke a defensive response. This results in bushier plants with larger yields – thanks to a hormonal response to the damage you cause. This damage is caused by carefully bending branches to damage their inner tissue- without breaking them.
Once cannabis enters the bloom phase, its energy is focused on flower production and shoots will no longer be bendy enough to supercrop. Late supercropping is not really a viable option. Firm branches will snap and the last thing female cannabis plants need during bloom is stress.
Repeat on the rest of the branches and the main stem for squat bushy plants with a flat canopy. A thick “knuckle” will form on the squished area so long as the plant is given a week or two to recover.
As cannabis plants transition from vegetative growth to flowering, they undergo hormonal changes and supercropping is no longer effective in bloom. Similar, to topping, the plants auxin distribution is manipulated to confuse the plant as to which branch is the main stem.
Auto growers will be disappointed to hear that supercropping is unsuitable for autoflowering cannabis plants. LST is a better fit for Auto’s. Supercropping is relatively easy to apply, but plants need a lengthy vegetative growth cycle for the technique to be effective. 6-8 weeks of vegetative growth is common for Supercropping photoperiod marijuana varieties.
Michelangelo stared at marble blocks for hours before he even picked up a chisel. The cannabis supercropper must also be imaginative and visualise the flat canopy before it can be created. You don’t need any tools; aside from the universal grow-op tool duct tape. Examine your plants and identify the imaginary line where you will supercrop along.
Furthermore, when cannabis plants are stressed by supercropping they have the potential to become even more potent. Resin production is part of the marijuana plants response to stress. Plus this technique is especially advantageous to cabinet growers and micro growers with limited grow space.
