Welcome to this awesome community. All you should do with autos is low strength training as soon as a node gets long enough to reach the edge tie some twine under the branching node and it tightly to the side of the pot ,i use a tight ring of twine to anchor, then keep doing that every other node in a spiral around the pot, some use tape but I don’t trust tape to hold and thatll keep them nice and low like these

Welcome to the community. You can use binder clips too.

I just lst, I tie it off with a pipe cleaner a different direction every other day. I like to start mine about the time the canopy is about the size of the pot it is in.

White widow is a great strain to start with. A few of the first widows.

did you do any training?

Yes just basic lst. To fill in the plants and thicken them up. In the last pic you can still see the pipe cleaner.

Just to be clear to a indoor/autoflower newb…this whole training thing…is this just one plant you’re training or multiple plants per pot?

Thanks!

just one plant

Lst is just pulling the top to the side to allow light to reach the bud sites blocked by the main cola.

Anytime…

heres one i did, once you tie it down leave it that position, as the lower branchs grow up u can tie those down till the canape is full

So I tried binder clips and I must admit it is slightly easier and doesn’t scrunch up the fabric
