So you know about LST (Low Stress Training) and you want to see it applied to the basic hydro setup of the Bubble Bucket (aka RumpleBucket) ? Well then follow along with a vigorous White Widow named Lumina in a bubble bucket while she gets trained to "follow the rim." While the original LST thread shows in great detail how to LST and why it's done there aren't as many pictures as some would like, and newbs want to know how to LST in a hydropnics setup. This is the reason I did this thread as well as this plant is such a great example. This Setup: 1x RumpleBucket Clear tape (i used cheap scotch, but you can use whatever it takes) String (tie downs with open insides as to not restrict growth of stem) Patience (I know, it's a bummer, but we need it. meh.) Pics: 1) The first tie down to start it all 2) She outgrew the one tie and now she needs two and a little guidance to "follow the rim" 3) After a bit more tie downs we can see the results 4) Zoom into the base and see how big the main stem got and how it knows to "follow the rim" 5) Wider angle of closeup so you can see the many tiedowns. 6) Backside view (notice how the ties only stick to rim; this is so we can lift lid if needed.) 7) Root pr0n! (NSFW?) Videos: First is a fly through to follow the main stem to get a better view of all the tie downs. <embed width="448" height="361" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" src="http://i521.photobucket.com/player.swf?file=http://vid521.photobucket.com/albums/w335/OrganicDIYdude/DSCN6045.flv"> Second is a view of the backside; notice the tie downs of the offshoots to try and keep them at the same height as the rest. <embed width="448" height="361" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" src="http://i521.photobucket.com/player.swf?file=http://vid521.photobucket.com/albums/w335/OrganicDIYdude/DSCN6046.flv"> There you have it. It's very simple, and as you can see very rewarding. Now just keep following the rim and your plant will be a huge bush in no time. Big thanks to DierWolf for the LST guide, and Rumple for the bubble bucket guides that paved the way. Questions, comments, concerns? Ask away!
