pruned sooner or later or more than once. Pruning
during flowering will cause problems with bud production because the
plant will divert its energy from bud production into branch and leaf
production. The results will be a slower rate of Bud growth.
Remember how we spoke about Indica plants being small and
Sativa plants being tall. Well if you learn to prune your plant right you
can generate small bushy Sativa plants that grow in tiny spaces.
Without pruning the Sativa plant it will probably stretch to five feet
For every stem or branch you prune, the cut area will develop
two more branches. Look outside at any tree. See how the stem divides
into branches which sub-divide into more branches which divide into
new shoots and leaves. Well some marijuana plant only grow a main
branch out from the stem and this may stay that way throughout its
entire grow. Any filling out usually occurs when new leaves and
branches develop at the nodes. Some lateral branches may develop new
shoots but these are somewhat small and thin and do not support much
bud growth. If we prune our plant we can make it more like the tree
that we see in the garden. There is also a limit to how much we can
prune. Let us follow a prune path for a moment.
If we prune the stem, it will split into two. We can prune both
these two new stems and end up with four stems. We may try to prune
each of these four stems to try and create eight stems, but this depends
on the strain and its branching limit which is genetically based. We
may be able to prune some of the lateral branches but again if the plant
has reached it threshold it will not produce more new branches. All
strains are different in this respect.
Prune cuts are made using clippers at a 45-degree angle to the
shoot being cut.
Some people like to keep their plants small and wide.
Cannabis plants are great for making bushes with. It is a simple
process. During the 3rd week of vegetative growth prune half the
plant’s branches and leave the other half. Never remove all the
branches. Cannabis plants need at least 50% of the leaves to continue
growing without fatal stunting problems. If you go less that 50% you
may end up killing them. Do not prune just one side of the plant.
Prune per side to achieve the 50%. You may also prune the main top
cola if you wish the cola to split into two or more parts.
Wait until the 4th or 5th week of vegetative growth and prune
the other half. (Only do this if the prune cuts you previously made
have grown new branches and leaves.)
During the seventh week of vegetative growth you will notice
that your plant has become more concerned with growing outwards
than with growing upwards.
Let us pretend that we have a plant with 8 shoots. That means
it is 4 nodes high. We perform our pruning as described and we end up
with 16 shoots, but our plant is still 4 nodes high. Now this does not
mean that we can keep doubling our shoots forever. P
