Winning Ugly Solved

by SubterraneanHomesickBooze about June 12 - report

Starting My 7th week of nutrients on these 4 foot monsters. Several branches had to be super cropped over a week ago for space; but have not really bounced back the way they did during vegetation! I even tried to doctor them up with tape. The branches are slopping over with buds and cant bounce back up! i can tell the damaged branches arent 100% broken and maybe i am just getting nervous. my question is should i take an early sample or just let the branches flop over? looks kinda sad lol. I wanted to keep them pretty but they are a jungle

    You do what you gotta do. I've supercropped in mid to late flower too. Just ride it out because they are alive and there is no sense in early harvest. If they are obviously dying, take them off.

    Only opinions for this questions. I can't offer any advice on what to do except cut one to see what yyou get. Leave the other with the best chance of making it and complare.

    I do not keep side branches. I cut at the 3rd or 4th mode when young and grow 6 or 8 branches. These 6 or 8 are not allowed to have any side branches.

    It is always good to learn from your mistakes.

    I was directed to never prune or cut after 2nd week of flower period. Bracing the stalks seems the more reasonable route. When my stalks went limp as a noodle I found my case to be underwatering.

    What I did after I super cropped was tied some nylon twine from the top of my tent and around the super cropped branch, it worked out pretty good! 

    No early sampling!!!!

      No early sampling!!!! says the guy that just cut a branch off his Lemon Skunk. Supercropping in flower is a way to reduce the possible problems when a plant gets too tall and it is not pretty. That is why I mainline and now SCROG. Fat short and wide is g...  more

    So ya super cropped @ wk6 of flowering, your plant is using all its energy to build buds. I think the best bet is what pipes said & support it, it may help it heal quicker. Leave the buds on branch they may get another wk of growing once knuckle is formed.

      Call it a lesson learned.

    Imo once a plant gets so far into flower you don't want to mess with it and it's too late to super crop. I would support it like others have mentioned and finish when trics are ready.

    As long as the buds and vegatation above the super crop are not wilting they are doing just fine..I always tape with blue masking tape any limbs that split during super crop..If you crush the inner tissue of the limb before bending over they will not split on the outside...Super cropping makes the plants look ugly but is a nessesity when you don't have enough overhead
