LST Bags for Beginners

Wasn’t sure where to post this, but wanted to share these training bags for anybody interested. I’m still fresh and tried LST a few days ago without using the rings, and my plants almost stood right back up. I was also scared I would stab the roots or it would sling shot up as soon as I let go.

This was not only easy on the nerves, and the actual application, but I feel confident the wire will stay put until I don’t need them. I’m not sure about links, since I’ve had them hidden or removed before, but I got them on Amazon at like $15 for 5. These are 3 gallon…

I just use a notebook paper punch to create holes for tiedowns.

I cut a little slit in the edge of the pot. Just wide enough to push the wire or string through…

The top two rings of a tomato cage work pretty good in grow bags. The lower ring early and top ring later.

I’m using the same brand in 3 gal right now. I use those binder clips on my 5 gal pots. I like how they work.

The only thing the handles could be a little bit bigger.

Very true. I’m not saying the homemade clips and things are bad, not in any way. Shoot, some of the best grows on here are growers personal tweeks. Being a little newer, though, already having the eyelets was so simple. I felt like I knew what I was doing.
