REGENERATION - Cannabis Growing Guide
It is possible to harvest plants and then rejuvenate them vegetatively for a
2nd and even 3rd harvest. A second harvest can be realized in as little as 6-8
weeks. Since the plant stalk, and roots are already formed, the plant can
produce a second, even third harvest of buds in a little more than half the time
of the original harvest. When harvesting, take off the top 1/3rd of the plant.
Leave most healthy fan leaves in the middle of the plant, cutting buds off
branches carefully. On the lower 1/3rd of the plant, take off end flowers, but
leave several small flowers on each branch. These will be the part of the plant
that is regenerated. The more buds you leave on the plant, the faster it will
regenerate. Feed the plant some Miracle Grow or any high nitrogen plant food
immediately after harvest. When you intend to regenerate a plant, make sure it
never gets too starved for nitrogen as it is maturing, or all the sun leaves
will fall off, and your plant will not have enough leaves to live after being
Harvested plants can come inside for rejuvenation under continuous light or
are left outside in Summer to rejuvenate in the natural long days. It will take
7-14 days to see signs of new growth when regenerating a plant. As stated
before, and in contrast to normal growth patterns, lower branches will be the
first to sprout new vegetative growth. Allow the plant to grow a little
vegetatively, then take outside again to reflower. Or keep inside for vegetative
cuttings. You now have two or three generations of plants growing, and will need
more space outside. But you will now be harvesting twice as often. As often as
every 30 days, since you have new clones or seedlings growing, vegetative plants
ready to flower, and regenerated plants flowering too.
Regenerating indoors can create problems if your plants are infected with
pests. It may be best to have a separate area indoors that will not allow your
plants to infect the main indoor area. An alternative to regenerating indoors is
to regenerate outdoors in the Summer. Just take a harvest in June, then allow
the plant to regenerate by leaving some lower buds on the plant, and leaving the
middle 1/3rd of the plant leaves at harvest. Feed it nitrogen, and make sure it
gets lots of sun. It will regenerate all Summer and be quite large by Fall, when
it will start to flower again naturally.
