Lolli popping is critical when growing larger plants with huge top colas.
The last set of plants I ran through the average large top was over 1 ounce dried!
However I waited too long to net them and did not lolli pop enough off. Our lights only penetrate about 12-18″ down into the canopy. so everything below must go.
In addition it allows the plants to breathe better and lowers the chance of bud rot or other molds from popping up in our gardens.
When lolli popping and when doing any type of plant training it helps to imagine what the plant is going to look like a few weeks down the road.
