SUPERCROPPING.....I have used this technique in my last grow (Green Crack auto) and saw great results!! BUT I did it earlier than week 7. So My question is.... Am I OK To supercrop some of the side branches that are sticking up above the tied down colas? OR Is it too late?? TIA

Sure you can, But with that said it is usually done in veg. and it can be done in early flower, but personally would not do it with the auto due them being a little further into flowering. For photo's you can get away with the supper-cropping in early flower but I have had the best results doing it like a week or 2 before the flip to flower. Happy Growing Keep up the awsome work:+1:

I did supercropping too, and i did it until flowers came. then i stopped not to stress her to much. I dont know on wich plant you want to do supercropping. Blueberry twist looks very promising, i would look at the plants and decide for eaxh plant. i woul spare the automatic plant.. Happy growing

hey missbling, super cropping is usually done in veg to increase the yields, and clearly that time has passed, but you can do "super cropping" in flower too, it's just not called super cropping it's just standard HST. You do the exact same thing and the plant will think it is being attacked and put more energy into that part of the plant thinking it's damaged, so what happens is you'll get bigger yields and more trychomes which means more potent bud, it will stress your plant though, so i wouldnt do it on the autos that are already far along because they might not recover in time unless you have to for space reasons or something. Anyway, hope this helps, and hope you get some good HST plants in the mix ! :rocket:
