Do you LST everyday for the entire flowering period?

by NugWitch about November 13, 2017 - report

I thought I read this was something you did everyday, but I think I can hold off for a few days, what do you think?

    I would say it depends on the grow conditions and growers time. Your grow looks wonderful.

    With an Auto, you really have to be careful of over-training a plant. They are not as resliliant as a photoperiod. Even if it were a photoperiod, you do not have to adjust everyday. Hell, twice a week is plenty Nug

    You can LST an auto up to the last few weeks of flower imo. When i say LST i mean tying branches down and apart for light penetration, air flow and an even canopy. This method can greatly improve your yield. Peace

      Right, that's what I meant by my post.. just moving things around gently to allow light and air flow. Thanks!

    Generally LST starts in early/middle vegation stage - there on it depends on your LST method, consider defoliate-ing in flower for light penteration

    I let the plant tell me if it needs LST or not. If I see buds that are getting shaded.. then I either tuck leaves under.. remove a few.. or tie the branch down.  Each plant is different. Some can grow quite open with plenty of space between the branches for good light penateration .. some are dense bushes.

    It depends on how fast your girls grow..LST often as required....Try to maintain as much space as possible between limbs for light penstration...Each strain grows a bit different. Same go's for defoliation..

      Some strains don't need LST at all...Others quite a bit.
