How to prune to increase yields

Just like trimming our hair, plants need trimming as well, and that’s often referred to as pruning. For indoor growers, pruning is an essential practice to control the size, shape, and health of your plants and, ultimately, to boost harvests with increased yields. The question is when to prune your plants and how to trim cannabis properly to benefit the most. 

In this post, we’ll walk you through some basic knowledge about pruning to increase yield, the right timing to cut off negative buds and branches, and valuable pruning techniques that contribute to better cannabis yields. 

Cannabis plants require a wide range of growth light spectrum to grow and produce large, high-quality buds. By pruning away excess foliage and branches, more light can reach the lower parts of the plant. In this way, pruning cannabis promotes photosynthesis, the process by which plants convert light energy into food, and then results in bigger, denser buds. 

Cannabis plants can become quite tall and lanky if left unchecked, which can lead to weak stems that are unable to support heavy buds. Pruning helps to keep the plant compact and manageable, encouraging the growth of multiple branches instead of one tall main stem. This results in a more bushy plant with a larger surface area, which allows for more buds to grow.
