Everyone loves a nice tall Christmas tree with one big kola on top like a lit star. The thing people might not realize is that the more surface of the stalk sees light, the more growth nodes it will put off. The old saying is, same above as below. The stock of the plant is basically the "taproot" of the air searching for sun and atmospheric gases rather than water to carry nutrients and oxygen. If the sun reaches the stalk then it is the equivalent of a water/nutrient source for the taproot. The stalk will produce more growth nodes if the plant is trained sideways and outward its whole life, it will act like a well put together piping or HVAC system. All of the energy flow is directed to the furthest points of the system. Increase endpoints, increased energy, more nugs -Duchess Cannabis Co.
