LST question

Discussion in 'First Time Marijuana Growers' started by greatvalue, Aug 14, 2011.

  1. If you were to lst your plant in one direction for a few days, and then another direction, etc.. Until all bud branches are growing very fast and sticking out of the canopy, then you wouldn't really need to lst it anymore right?
     
  2. Thts wat its all about geting inter noder to grow or to keep the plant small jus in case u need stealth
     
  3. SO, initail LST is to get branches to grow, keeping it LST is to keep it short only?
     
  4. Not not only this but it can make more colas(budspots) to grow an increase ur yeild. But i lst to make my plant fit in a grow box so i can get the most out of her, and if u stop lstin ur plant will grow bak to normal in a day or two
     
  5. Right. It goes back to normal in a day or two, but the bud branches have already grown a couple of inches during the couple of days it was lst. So yea it goes back to standing up straight, but the branches that matter are now taller than the fan leaves. SO no more need for LST correct?
     
  6. I'm not sure about this line between initial LST and keeping it LST, needing it or not needing it. It all depends on your grow. As the plant matures then the bends you made using LST become permanent, though even they can "relax" upwards a little, like a spring coil. But at the end each branch continues to grow longer, so you can continue to tie it down to maintain the height you need. Or, let her loose and enjoy the vertical growth.
