Did i read at one time about splitting a plant? How is this done & benifits?
you just have to grow it in your house and pick a place. its a bit complicated but its pretty dope, you can always smoke for free if once they're done and you can make benefits of your own. just be smart
Im confused ..im talking about taking an existing plant...splitting it down the middle...and making 2 plants! I thought it was done to make bushier plants?
Thats called cloning.. find a nice long piece thats connected to the stem and cut it but make sure to cut it on an angle, then make about 3 little slits on the bottom (cut all three on an angle) and add some growing hormones to make it grow faster give it a little light not too much and water it at least twice a day.
make sure to cut some leaves off near the bottom so it can grow faster and viola u got another plant
Marijuana cuttings tend to grow more rapidly than the mother plant it was taken off of.
Nope not cloning! Cloning i know about!
I have done this on accident with outdoor ladies. As long as the plant is tended to, it will be ok. Most people top the plant to get 2 tops, then top those 2 into 4, and so on. But, splitting after the first top has grown out will open th plant up. In my oppinion, it is better to top them and tie the branches out to the sides. No sense in hacking up a plant. At least till it is ready to smoke, lol...
So topping is actually cutting the top off ...and splitting would be sliceing it down the stock? I imagine all is done at during veg?
Topping is for making the plants grow more bushy and less tall.All that u do is to pinch the new growing tip off with your finger and thumb or use scissors.This will then grow two tips.Not only will it make the plant more bushy but give u more grow sites for bud. Just pinch the tallest ones on your plant.
