How To Trellis Medicinal Plants In The Pursuit of Better Yields

November 29, 2021

Every medicinal plants cultivation site is different so these steps might not apply to your garden specifically. But in an effort to cover as many bases as possible, we'll go over both vertical and horizontal trellising processes.

Vertical trellising

  • Place wood, PVC, or bamboo stakes deep into the four corners of your planter bed or pot.
  • Stretch netted trellising around the stakes, using zip ties or flexible planters tape to secure the screen to the frame.
  • As the plants grow, carefully push branches through the holes in the netting to provide stability and structure.

Horizontal trellising

  • Place wood, PVC, or bamboo stakes in the four corners of your planter bed or grow space. These will anchor your net.
  • When your plants have fully entered the vegetative phase before flowering, drape a trellis net with large holes over the entire canopy of your plants.
  • Carefully tuck the tops of the growing plants under the net, until the entire canopy sits at the same height.
  • As the plants continue to grow, the even height will feed more of the energy from your lights to the canopy, allowing as many flowers as possible to grow out of the holes in your netting.
  • When your plants begin to flower, use another large, draping net to cover the top of your plants to support any heavy flowers that might otherwise fall under their own weight.

Once your plants are ready for harvest, cut through the trellising to remove large branches, being careful not to mangle any lower branches on the plastic netting as you remove buds for drying.

Trellising may seem like an unnecessary step in the medicinal plants growth cycle, but the added structure and direction of the frame and netting will help take any plant's growth, and yield, to the next level.

Of course, the use of led grow lights are also essential. Below we will recommend 3 types of light strips that can be used together to increase yields.
