  2. Yes but WAY too early
     
  3. My big plant is 32 days old && I thought it was best to start Early
     
  4. Youre overthinking the process....and you (the human) are trying to fix variables too much........leave it alone....plants adapt without human help

    And if you shock the plant when its small it wont boost lactate dehydrogenase properly....its just immature

    In a mature plant the LDH kicks and acts like steroids to the plant.

    Remember a 72 hour rule- if you mess with your plant AT ALL....wait 72 hours b4 messing with it again.

    That's not really LST. When you LST you bend the plant over, exposing more bud sites and causing the stem to grow in another direction. The sites that are now out in the open will begin to grow upwards like another main cola
     
  6. Theres no need to top and lst. Lst doesnt cause stress while achieving the same results as topping, by manipulating hormones.

    Carefully squeeze the stem, bend her over, then tie her down.

  8. No, im saying topping isnt necessary.

    Each time you cut the plant you stunt it. It takes 3-4 days after each cut for normal growth to resume.

    Lst accomplishes the same thing (low stress training) as topping, WITHOUT stress or growth delay. In two or so hours the plants bend back up.

    Leave the strings, stop cutting it.

    no kidding, I allow twice in 24 hours ( and I mean 2 changes to the plant), but that is pushing it and I don't like to do it
     
  10. yeah yeah yeah we got ya, LST is a technique. That's cool. Not sure if it is so good and apparent why you feel the need to attack other techniques. But then again, I saw those pictures of those crazy LST'd plants you grow and there is no denying it. Peace
     
  11. Here's some positive vibes for you brother.

    I dont attack anyones technique, just offer my opinion like everyone else.

    Thats why grasscity is so nice, because we can all share our opposing views and why,

    and it's all good man.

    Next j's for you! :metal:

  17. Lol Yup I do but I have all my photos backed up with Google 😂
     
  18. Nice I can't really see yur stems but they look nice and healthy I had to stop LST on my baby because she was starting to look in pretty bad shape but wen I took off the strings she started recovering immediately
     
  19. Yea I mainly pulled the limbs out and down. A lot of new growth is exposed and shooting through.
