As mentioned above, pruning removes cannabis leaves and branches that are dead or won’t receive much light. Again, it might feel strange to intentionally cut off bits of your plant, but without the proper amount of light, buds will be a poor quality.
To top marijuana plants:
How to top marijuana plants
From this point until the beginning of flowering, you can actively prune your plants. Once into the flowering phase, you want to cease pruning, as it can diminish the size and quality of your buds.
If you wait to top a weed plant after it has developed more than seven nodes, the plant will have been putting energy into upward growth that you are just going to cut off, when it could have been focusing on lateral growth that you will keep.
For the first topping—cutting the main stalk—a good rule of thumb is to cut the plant above the 5th node. This will give you enough side branches on the remaining part of the plant for it to bush out properly.
The line between topping and pruning can be a little hazy. Topping is cutting off the main stalk of a weed plant to force it to grow more bushy, which will allow it to yield more and be healthier. Pruning is removing marijuana leaves and branches that are dead or won’t receive much light so that a weed plant can focus its energies on producing buds in other areas.
With promises of 40 percent off for special sales, it’s hard not to like MSNL, or Marijuana Seeds, NL, based in the Netherlands. Despite its faraway headquarters, the seed bank company ships to the U.S. and has been doing so since 1999. The designation as the “original seed bank” has earned the company a reputation for efficient shipping and fine seed genetics.
ILGM impressed us this time around for their strong guarantees and the highest quality of seeds overall, even when compared to some world-class competition. And yes, it helped tremendously that they’re based in California and understand the complexity of US cannabis laws.
