kcartel started grow question 3 years ago
Hi guys! The problem is, in general, the plant in the growing box has grown so much that from the lamp to the top of 1.5 cm, the temperature there is quite high, will it somehow affect the plant? And how can I fix this if I have 5 weeks and this is main-lining with the main trunk

If you didn't want to supercrop you could also just gently bend the main stem and tie it to the side of the pot to flatten it out a bit. :+1:

Hi @kcartel! I've had this problem in the past, and ended up buying a bigger tent :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes: But there's still a chance to prevent this main cola from burning: look at the supercropping technique, it's exactly what you need right now. By bending the main stem at almost 90° without breaking it, you will manage to get a nice flat canopy where every bud do receive the same amount of light. Be quick, or you will increase the fire hazard risk in your tent. Hope this will help, keep us updated and happy growing! :facepunch:

Hi! You have two solutions one tie her main stem out of the way with a rope etc by gently bending the stem. Other one is super cropping that I recommend.
Happy growing!

I would get her away from that light if you don’t want any problems. I’d supercrop her, pick a spot on the stem, roll the stem in your fingers to make it more plyable then squeeze till you hear a pop and gently lower the branch, becarful not to break open the bark, if you do just use some painters tape to cover the open bark. There lots of videos on you tube about supercroping some even super crop onto a scrog you’ll find something there to help you get a better idea how to do it

Having the light to close will cause heat stress and burn your buds! You could supercrop each cola. Supercropping is when you bend down the main stems without breaking the stem. It is a high stress training technique and will help you! Happy growing!:four_leaf_clover::muscle:
