Is this a start to LST? I’ve been reading about it and wanted to give it a try, any input is appreciated
That’s kind of how it goes but you really want to let your side shoot branches , branch out more cause you are bending the main stalk which you really would like to keep straight . In my opinion I think you trying this very prematurely , give the plant much more time to grow out more before you start LST training if that’s your desire Sir . I’ll upload a photo on LST but low stress training is really in the early stages of flowering but in late vegging honestly . From the photo at this point what you really want to do to begin training her is film top the plant buy snipping the very top node that’s starting to grow out in the very center of the two top leaves , than let her recover for a couple of weeks and after its topped she bush out more and give you a better platform to LST training .
This is an example of what LST training should resembles which allows more light through the canopy of the plant to the bottom half that’s over shadowed by the top branches and side shoots that grows to the light is why most cultivators LST . Hope this helps out and give you a better perspective on how to LST train .
@yoshi that is a nice lil LST there it looks ready for the Scrog . And to anticipate the next question this is the difference between fimming and topping
I LST them flat on the soil.
@Givemefire you buddy have some scary looking LST pictures . You are the guy who let’s his branches make more root nodes aren’t you? Some of that shit borders on topiary artistry not just growing lol
I am like you @Edward7983 and keen to lst. I topped my plant yesterday
With a view to lst once the new shoot grow. If there is anything I have learnt from here is patience and the Really good help
Thanks for the replies guys… @Yoshi I guess tonight when i get out of work ill undo the LST for now. Lol i guess i got a little ahead of myself. Its my first grow so i want to make sure i do things right
My seed sprouted on the 16 of October. So its a little over 3 weeks old. Its bag seed, so its a crap shoot if i get a female out of this experiment. But i am taking it very seriously. Because if things work out for me in my first grow, i will be planting some exotic strains.
i would like to know when is it a good time to fim or top. Should i let her branch out a bit more. I would hate to cut off any vital parts or bud sights?
Best thing for now is patience . Lmao I am the same way I have been waiting for most of my life to do this and now it seems like it is taking forever to grow . I started to LST mine and messed up and had to undo it also. They are amazingly resilient to minor damage s long as they are healthy to start . You really should have a look @Givemefire LST to get a idea of what can be done with one and the benefits ou can get from it . Good luck
