  7. There really is no "wrong" way to LST.
    The whole goal is to open up the canopy and you do this by pulling down and out on the stems.
    High Stress training involves actually rubbing a stem between your thumb and forefinger and then bending it over. This is a little more radical but achieves the same effect.
    If you want to LST, it is helpful to have this planned before the plant actually takes off and starts growing. That way you can get it while it is easy to manage.
  8. I pull my tops down as far as I can without breaking the plant.  Then after a few days, when the plant stem has adapted to that, I pull her down a little more.  That plant for instance, I would pull it down just below the top fan leaves untill the plant looks like an upside down "J".  Anytime I LST a plant, I go by the mindset that lower is better.  My current grow is well into flowering and starting to frost up.  She is about 10" high from the soil and 24" wide.
