sure...usually i top...lst and supercrop in that order..what ever the plant needs...but do any of you guys supercrop purely to get more nutes to the buds..i usually supercrop only to redirect growth or control height:smoke:
same i only super crop if they get too tall and ill always lst first super cropping is kinda a last resort for me im sure every grower dreads it as much as i do when you bend that branch a lil too much

the act of breaking the inner stem to allow more light to plant, control growth, and/or allow more nutes to the plant above the bend
I'm pretty sure I know what u mean .... u got one tall ass plant out of the garden twist and bend stem a lil and stunts growth right? But that's bad for the plant right ? How does it get more nutrients to the top?

this one is 1 week behind and i supercropped her yesterday
the amount of increased budsites is impressive and growth was hardly slowed down at all..plus increased vigor to top above where i supercropped..kinda like a human bone heals stronger where it was broken:smoke:

If so, why is that (hermies/lower yield/what?).
I've been supercropping all the way into week 3 of flowering (most of my grows).
So I don't get the down-side to this, maybe I've been lucky.
If you get hermies, there is no way to know why that happened (in most cases, IMHO). I seldom get hermies, if I do it's usually the late nanners that selfdom do any real harm.
