Trying to LST!

  1. I've been trying to LST my first grow, it looks easy enough but the trouble is my plants are really kinda bushy near the bottom, I was expecting them to be skinnier.
    When I bend the stems over it looks like some of the larger bottom leaves get shoved right down out of the way.
    Is this kinda normal?
    The plants are nearly 4 weeks old (Sensi Skunk seeds), I guess if they were to be stood up straight they'd be about 6 or 7 inches tall, it looks like a dwarf christmas tree with a fat arse :D

    I know I know, I need pics, but my camera batteries are dead :rolleyes:
  2. Don't worry about the leaves being pushed out of the way, they will correct themselves or absorb light the way they are.

    If you want a bit more space between the nodes, so its easier to LST. Move the lights a bit further away for a few days, and the plant will stretch for the lights, space out the branch nodes, and makes LST easy.
  3. Thanks mate, I was worried they looked a bit too compacted.
