Lst step 2 ? Someone help please

Hi guys I’m posting once again this time about lst on autos! My guestion is what’s the next step after tighten them down? Someone said wait two days and adjuste the strings but this is really general…from what I get you have to keep the canopy on same level correcty me if I’m wrong…I think I did that right…the left up plant got lst yesterday night and after seeing the results the next day I lst them all! So now that the girls are in same height what’s next? I’m on day 23 and I have metal Hilde bulb for vegevetive stage

Side question: is that loitle white hair sign of preflowering…I want to know if I have enough time before flowering because from what I read I’m not supposed to lst on flower…

Looking good! I too have seen videos and read that you’ll need to adjust them every day. I personally found this isn’t the case. In your photos, I see the top of the plants have yet to point back up. Completely normal and fine. They will. You should only need to adjust when one branch/leaf, whatever, is higher than the others in the pot. Then you tie that one down. I don’t believe you’re in flower yet, no.

Yes, she is in flower, you have approx 8 weeks before harvest at this point. You did a decent job, I would tie the side branches back in the opposite direction from main plant to ger growth on other side. I keep moving the tie down as needed to an even canopy.

Ultimately, this is how you want your plant to finish out

Now would be a good time since she is in flower. She will still bulk up and stretch during 5ish of the 8 weeks.

Happy growing!

It is always great to see how they end up after training. Try and have a plan for the training. Which direction would open her up to more light and better air flow? Which branches will impede with another as they stretch and put on bulk. Some forward planning now may equal fewer issues later.

Nice looking plant @NavyVet420 :+1:

So my girls are 21 days old today and I started LST on them yesterday I was wondering if I should cut the fan leaves that keep falling back down and covering the middle growth or should I just leave it and keep pulling them down until the middles shoot above the fan leaf?




I’d chop them if it were me. Maybe do two one day and the other two the next. Good luck and keep us posted!
