Tee-Pee Technique

Published by Kyle Kushman

 

This method of stabilizing huge buds is the easiest I’ve found to date. It leaves my plants free to be moved while completely stabilizing it. Plus it wont slow you up much while harvesting.

Green garden tape and bamboo stakes are available at the local nursery. Simply buy the correct size. You want the  stakes a foot taller than the plant. The ones in my photo are 5’. They are cheap. Buy three for each plant.

Tee Pee

Place each stake between the soil and bucket in a like a tripod. Place the stakes in between drain holes at the bottom of the bucket or you’ll create an easy route for water to runoff. Now bring the top of the three stakes in to the center to form the top of the tee-pee. Secure them together with some tape.

Simply tie a strip of garden tape to each branch just below the lowest kola-node. Bring the other end of the tape to the top of the stakes and wrap it around, then tie it off to secure it. Lower branches can be secured to a branch rather than running a strip to the top. Nursery's also sell large twist ties in packs and on rolls which work well for securing lower branches.

Happy Supercropping

Of coars it does. Just buy appropriate sized stakes. Although, a four post would probably be advisable for really larege plants. Dontcha think? ;-)

OK, I have to ask....what is a "kola-node"? and how do I find it on my plants? Thanks, I am a Granny who is also a newbie to this, the BEST form of pain relief I have found in over 45 years,lol. Seriously tho, where are the kola=nodes? I can't ask anyone I know as they have never grown any either, Thanks Kyle, you are a true legend!

everything i have read so far I have gained knowledge from so thankyou ! I saw your super crop technique on a you tube video and was impressed.

I have a question for you, I do no have a long vegetative cycle due to height restrictions. Would you recommend your super cropping techniques from vegg even into early flower ?  Also when "snapping" or super cropping  do you preform a twist type snap or a pinch snap ? If that makes sense !! ? thanks !

This will also make it more difficult to accidentally poke yourself in the eye with a bamboo support while bending over. It'd be funny if it wasn't so bad. Nothing funny about bamboo slivers in the eye. No it wasn't me.

Momma-

what Kyle node" is the place where there is a space between the largest bud on the end of every branch and where the next bud is growing.
