With LST how many times do I top?

  1. My plant has been topped and has grow about 8 nice new shoot. I recently did my 1st bend in LST and tied it down to expose them to the light. They all have moved towards the light but I want to know if I should top those new shoots once they grow a bit? Or will those new shoot become main colas from the LST light exposure?

  2. Technically you don't need to top with lst. It's kind of up to you. Everyone has their own methods. I personally never top. I just continue to tie down new main colas so under growth will shoot up and create more.

  3. Thanks man. I ended up topping a few shoots. Check out the progress.

  4. Looks good! I found some strains are happy to be topped and loaded with N while others straight up tell you they dont want any pruning as they try hard to maintain single cola dominance

  5. Yeah I don't top much either usually, figured I'd toss a pic on here to show him.

  6. Yeah I top some strains that I have had good experience with but the LST was a first for me. Thanks I realized that LST will cause the new shoots to grow on its own with out topping.
  7. Wow those branchs were thick. I have realized that LST by itself will bring the shoots up. I actually ended up with double the amount of tops I wanted by accident
