The Screen of Green method is an effective way of keeping it short. Growers can encourage lateral growth by weaving the branches into the net. Topping it is also another choice.
Soil as a medium improves its overall flavors and scents. More experienced growers may use a hydroponics setup which improves bud and trichome production while hastening yields.
