Your best yeild improving "tricks"!!??!

Some of us have the basics down for cultivating acceptable flowers, be it in soil or in Hydro. However, the basics can only get you so far.

What is it that you've discovered to help your plants improve yield?

Did you discover that plants produce more weight when grown au naturale (no topping, scrogging, LST'ing) or did the produce more when they were trained?

Was it the addition of C02 into the garden that helped you produce?

Was it adding a specific nutrient during the flower/veg cycle that helped produce more weight.

Are you using UV lights, Fluro's or MH along with your HPS and do you find this to help produce more yield?


What, if any, are your tricks to get the most out of a single plant?

The best way to get the most out of a single plant is to cut it up and make 1000 clones...

Of course... I should specify - Beyond taking cuttings, what is the best way to get the most of a single plant?

I'll keep an eye on this one. Im interested to see what people have to say. My past few grows I have fim'd, but this time, on my current grow I fim'd and did some lst. By the looks of it I'll be getting more this time and I think it's because of the lst. The canopy with the lst seems to be alot more even than with fiming or topping alone. However, I have yet to finish this grow so we shall see.

If the environment is spot on and you have your nutes dialed in then I would say genetics. If you have good genetics, then optimizing your nutrients and Ph levels over the course of the flowering cycle should further dial you in to a gram a watt or better. Of course the most light possible and a good CO2 controller will help as well.

In veg, I top my plants at the 4th node (one the 5th node is visible I snip it off) - this encourages 4 main growing branches.

Then I supercrop/stall the main leads to encourage the bottom arms to stretch up and join the mains at the canopy. Supercropping/stalling/breaking the inner hurd not only stalls the mains, but it also bulks up the stems at the bud sights allowing them to build & support bigger buds.

Between bloom weeks 1-3 (days 1-20) I remove the bottom 30% of all the sucker branches and bud sights that would end up in the trim pile for the sake of forcing the plant to direct all its flowering energies into the tops.

Just like Greyskull said...Thats some good info.. I too top or fim at the 4th-5th node then top those too at their 2nd nodes.. I super crop(smash and bend the branches downward) just like GS said, it causes the branches to knot up and get fat, trim off the bottom shelf(and root) about a week or so into bloom...Tieing down and or scrogging them as well has gotten me larger yeilds too..

If growing in soil the simplest method is bigger pots for the roots. Then there's multi topping, though anything over 6 tops stops increasing yield. Then there's longer veg times. Then theres more light.
