I just started my LST training on this lil girl. Its a power plant clone. Usually I wait a little longer to start bending but I wanted to see how early I could start the bend. I also really wanted to start trying to lower it gradually from the light as much as possible because its been suffering a bit from light stress since it was planted on 10/16. I started bending it 2 days ago. Its recovering from the light stress a bit because thanks to reading a lot of threads on here and some other research I figured out that my light was able to be dimmed. Between dimming the light and starting the LST bend I think that the clone will be ok just a slower recovery than I would really ideally want. Here is what she looked like before the bend. When she was first planted she needed a stake to hold her up because the top active growth was flopping over.
I figured I’d get opinions on how early others start bending their clones or even their seedlings? Like I said this is the earlies that I’ve started the bending usually I start with a FIM or topping her but this clone was a bit taller than the others that I take so I figured why not try it this way. Have a good one everyone.
