I would let it grow a bit more, and continue in the same direction.

Yeah I would do as @Covertgrower said. Let her grow a bit into that position. Have you thought of a plan on how you want do proceed with the LST? I did a few bonsai plants, and in my experience having a well thought out plan on how you want the plant to look is very important.

I’m hoping,lol, to just keep it going around the pot and try to get it in a net , I hope I’m not exceeding my expectations ,we will see,haha but she seems super healthy and springy to the touch, I’ll keep y’all posted y’all rock!!

That is what I did with this jack herer auto. It was a late bloomer so I just kept bending it around the pot


Three days later. Grabbed the head and tied it down

Another six days. Running out of pot

A couple weeks before harvest. It was a good plant

In hindsight, I should have removed more of the lower and interior growth. Some of them became crowded and therefore less productive. All-in-all it was fun. Ps I did not top her.

If you bought it from ILGM you can look up old orders. May not do any good if you bought gold lead as an auto and photo.
The main thing is to keep track of the number of main colas and don’t be afraid to be selective.

Only advice I have is if you make your adjustments before you water while they are “thirsty”, they tend to be more flexible and “bendy” less chance of breaking anything and easier to get right where you want it…

The first picture is a little to soon fir me but the 2nd pictures I would definitely have them starting to bend over :man_shrugging:

Looks good though imho :grin:
