    Default LST time??

    Hi
    The pic shows the biggest of my autos started from seed on the 25th August.
    Is it time to start LST or do u wait till there bigger?
    Some aren’t taller than the pot sides so unsure how to tie them down if ready to do,only seen a method with pipe cleaners fixed to the sides of the pots to pull tops down.
    Thanks for the help.

    I start as soon as they can stand up by themselves and the stem is a few mm thick. I anchor it at the bottom of the plant and hook it to one side of the pot, then put a rest in for it to lean on then bend it andd hook to the opposite side.

    Like this, usually have a rest so it can shape it properly withour uprooting it

    I like the wire anchoring the base of the plants MrC
    Many times I got dirt in my eyes as the roots came flying out of the soil when I got a bit excitable with training
    Damn why didn't I think of that!

    Theyre kinda under developed for their age mate, have you considered opening a grow diary?

    Current grow - OGKZ / Gelat.OG / GZ / LSD / 750w lm301b

    Haha yeh mate I did it once, pretty sure Ice showed me a diagram, works a treat. I like gettin that 90 degree bend before it gets strong, more chance of snapping it the older it gets, seem to stay short and the stem thick when I do it early.

    Hi
    Ye I thought that.dont know what I’ve done wrong,I’ve posted a lot of questions on here,I’ve got a 600w HPS on them in cocci feeding with a&B canna with rhizotonic with extraction on low and fan on them.
    Had a week or more when they didn’t seem to do anything.
    I didn’t pre water the coco and was only spraying the seedlings with a small sprayer with a little A&B in,think that didn’t help
    There autos do u think they will be affected?(size,yield)
    Thanks

    You better open a diary, than open up question over question in q&a

    Slow growth may be so many things

    Distance between lamp to plants?
    Stats in the groom? Temps, rh lights on/off
    Light schedule?
    Do you use ph and ec meter? If so, what are you feeding? (Stats)
    Do you water every day to 20% runoff?

    A dirty coco bag may cause slow growth as well. Until enough water has ran through.... i like to wash my coco and get it down to tap water ec before potting up.
