This will force your plants to create heavier and denser buds. And it also increases THC production up to 20%.
This will cause the plant to start producing more trichomes which means heavier and denser buds with higher THC level.
How to split the stem in 3 easy steps:
Step 1 Tie the stem with a rope right at the base. Tie a second rope a couple inches above that.
Step 2 Take a very sharp knife and cut from the top tie to the bottom tie. There should be one vertical cut that is a few inches in length.
Step 3 The knife should remain inside until you have a chopstick to replace it with. This is to keep both sides of the marijuana plant from touching each other.
Splitting the stem causes stress on the plant and forces it to create more trichomes.
