Photoperiod interruptus

I read an article about taking a plant that's in it's 4th-5th week of flowering and putting it back into veg for 48 hours on 18/6, 20/4, 20/0. By doing this you trick the plant into using more energy to reproduce and causes restimulation of the pistils and slight stem lengthening. Which makes the buds thicken dramatically. This will lengthen the cycle about 7 days and increase yields up to 20-25%. This will cause a new stem to form from the tops of your buds and a new flower will develop. Has anyone tried this technique, and how well does it work?

I seen a thread on here earlier today about someone putting there plant in the dark for a couple days before harvest, I've never tried that either, but might also do this with one to compare.

You see this one is more understandble.
If you put the plant into darkness for days, it will think its going to die very soon, and will/should start producing extra THC as fast as possible so it can stick on any pollen in the air for the plants genetics surval.

Damn man I was just trying to share an Idea that might increase yields, It did'nt sound so bad to me, producing more bud. I had no Idea that hightimes growing tips were shit, I thought they were pros.

I don't think he's jumping down your throat, hes just saying, if ya mess with the plants light cycle, you may just make it a hermie. If ya want to increase yield, theres many diffrent ways.

I've recently been looking into a method called Scrog, dramatically increases yields, but its taking some time to wrap my mind around it.

Kind of reminds me of monster-cropping. With modification this technique may have a positive effect on various strains. Try it and post a review.

Cool man I'm interested and open minded to the idea myself, Like you said if done right or a little tweaking could possibly get good results.
