hi! im a first time grower in need of assistance. i am currently growing a single white widow autoflower and am very confused on how to train it, when to train it, and if training is a good idea at all! my plant first sprouted 15 days ago (on 09/09/2020). i cant figure out how to upload a photo from my mac but please help me!!
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
and thank you for the warm welcome
Looks like a sativa dominant if shes stays that bushy ( like my Jack herer on the left) you may not need to lst
thank you!! and your plants are beautiful
Thanks I messed up their first 3 weeks so bad since its my 1st grow but they bounced back beautifully, I can already tell yours is gonna be a giant
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.
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?
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.
Gotcha…thank you both!
