These poor plants

I’ve just been winging this. I think that I was ok until I flipped about a week ago. They are out of control. I am attempting lst, but obviously in over my head. I want to try and beat them into submission today, any and all help much appreciated. Also pots look hella gross, any ideas ? TIA

Welcome to the forum, great people around to help you.

I don’t LST, but see if I can tag some ppl.

When you say, I flipped a week ago, you are talking about flowering?

@Bulldognuts, you LST right?

Yes, I switched to the bloom side of the light…lol, and went 12-12. Only a 4ft tent so I need em short.

When you tie her down ,u leave it tied

The 1st and 4th pics are males. May want to cull them unless you’re planning on breeding.

@Tinman has you covered on LST. Remember the further into flower you get the stiffer the branches become. Good eye @Bobbydigital nice catch, I didn’t notice that.

I knew this was a male and it is now outside

but I thought this looked different.

Both are males

Well Poop!

Yeah it sucks getting that far just to get what you didn’t want. But the good thing about using regular seeds is when you get a female they are more vigorous than their feminized counterparts.

I would greatly appreciate some more advice. I didn’t tie it down right and now I’ve got some tight clusters. Any ideas about how much longer til harvest…lol.

Use some soft knitting yarn, tie a loop on the end and make a slip knot. The loop should be as wide as two fingers.

Now slip the loop around the lowest branches below a node close to the main stem, so it wont slip, thread the straight end thru the loop and take up the slack pulling it thru the loop.

It’ll tighten itself as you pull the loose end, loosely pull it down and secure it to the pot you’re growing in. Dont tie it off to your tent because it’s more difficult to move later.

Start off with lower moving to the upper and get it spiraling. You tied off low on the branches now move up and repeat the loop slip knot procedure.

So now move your anchor point on the higher branch to reach clockwise or counterclockwise spacing out your tips so they get light right on top and tips are not hidden under others.

Spread the LST out but dont just leave it for a week. Adjustments can be made each day to pull more here this way and readjust the other tie offs to go the opposite direction.

This is called spiraling spread typically, and its intensive because you can snap branches and main stems just catching a shirt button reaching around when you should just get up and move around :roll_eyes:

The simplest way is to just go straight out and let the branches reach back up to the light. On the smaller autos in a 2x2 tent you cant spread it as far as it could probably go in a bigger space. Good luck @MarijjJane

Thank you so much for the info
