How Blue Cookies Strain gives You High Yields
Growing this strain may be difficult because there is a lot of factors that you need to control but when it comes to maintaining this strain, there is only one technique that is widely used by growers to promote healthy crop growth and that is the proper technique. Proper pruning is believed to increase yield.
The main goal of the pruning technique is to grow the cannabis plant tall and strong by ensuring that the sunlight and water are easily accessible. When sunlight and water are easily accessible by the cannabis plant it does not need to exert effort to compete with other plants. When plants are thriving to get sunlight and water from nearby plants there’s a tendency that it will grow wide losing some of its energy and nutrients intended for growth. So when there are light and water supply the plant’s focus is directed in growing tall and healthy.
How to Prune This Strain
You may need to have two kinds of scissors or shear: one for heavy-duty cutting and one for lighter cutting. You may want to use gloves because your hands may have stain due to excessive chlorophyll or waxy resin from the buds’ surface. The cannabis plant is delicate, you may damage the plant if you don’t have sufficient knowledge in doing it.
When starting to prune, you need to focus on the lower branches because lower branches tend to provide little assistance when it comes to the growth process and it does nothing but to use important nutrients. Another reason why lower branches are the first one to be pruned is that this is the part where there is little to no light exposure. If that part of the cannabis plant is not exposed to sufficient sunlight then there is a possibility that it may be infested to bud rot that may affect the overall health of the cannabis plant.
What to Prune
- In all the growth areas of the cannabis plant, you want that all its nutrients are used for the plant’s healthy growth. If the plant has dead parts such as leaves, branches, etc. its nutrients are still allocated in places where it becomes useless. Remove any dead part of the cannabis plant to allow the plant to focus on how to grow healthily rather than wasting its energy to maintain dead parts.
- Cut out branches that are not directly connected to the trunk especially lower branches. If the branches may seem not to contribute anything for the growth of the cannabis plant especially if t is hidden and it is not receiving light rays.
- Cutaway the leaves on top of the plant to ensure that the branches underneath will receive a sufficient amount of light and to stimulate new branch growth.
- Pluck small buds sprouting located on the lower portion of the plant. Aside from these small buds drain energy from the main buds this small buds sprouting is useless because it will no longer grow further. If you are into using hashish or cannabis edibles, these small buds sprouts can still be used.
