I have read the pros and cons of LST on auto-flowers. I think I would prefer to just let them grow with the least stress possible. However, my grow tent is only 69". Subtracting for the light, the platform on the base, and the pots, I have effectively 48" of growth space. Given I would like to be able to stay at 18" from the light if needed, that leaves 30" maximum plant height. If I just let them grow and they get taller than 30" I potentially have a major problem with burning the top colas (Damn! makes me cry just thinking about it). Otherwise, I can LST to minimize the height of the plants, but then I risk stressing the plants and reducing their overall growth. Anybody know how tall these varieties get?
Some additional information. I seeded two AK47s and two Jackpots. The total tent size is 3’ x 3’ x 69."
