    My plant looks some what like the pic above.

    This is my first time trying a LST grow and I just have a couple questions.

    Should I go ahead and top the plant now, then go ahead and anchor the stem to the ground between the leaf sets (shown in pic)?

    and also How far should the stem be (horizontally) from the soil?



    Thanks in advance for the help

  2. if u top, wait until the 2 tops form and grow 2 nodes from the stem, then LST just as u have shown in the pics. An inch or 2 from the soil should be fine
  3. Thanks for the help Ill +rep as soon as I can, just another quick question did you top your plant?

    *edit- my plant is only about 8" tall is that a problem?
  4. I wouldn't top if you are going to LST. Topping just make it seem like you are doubling the amount of weed you are getting, but you are only removing the main growth. With LST, those 2 growth tips at the node will get plenty of light and grow pretty big without having to remove the top.

    LST is the way to go. I have been training mine since about 6 inches. Now I don't have a weed plant, I have a weed bush that gets bigger every day.
