High Stress Training (HST)

high stress training (hst)

High Stress Training (HST) (also known as super cropping) is a pruning method which induces a certain amount of stress on the plant by crushing the stem and encouraging the plant to grow horizontally. The plant growing wider will allow more light onto the plant, and as the plant increases its energy to heal the broken stem, it should in turn produce more or larger buds from this added energy.
