ASK ED MARIJUANA GROW TIP #44: SUPPORT YOUR COLAS
The buds were too heavy and they were flopping over. As a result, they weren’t using the light efficiently and some buds were shading others.
We decided to use YO-YO Plant Supports to hold the buds upright. Small nails were used to fasten the supports overhead to a crossbeam. Then we attached the small hook on the YO-YO to a bud. The device has a spring to hold the plant upright through tension.
Photo 1: Notice one bud has been supported with plastic horticultural wire. All the other colas are bending over from lack of support.
Photo 2: You can see all the colas are being held upright. They get best light exposure in this position.
