Default Topping / Pruning / Training

Topping

The most used way to prune marijuana is topping. Topping is removing the main growth shoots. After this is done, the plant will direct all of its energy into the two nearest growth shoots, and you will get two new shoots instead of the one you chopped off. Side branches will get a chance to catch up since the top shoots will stop growing for a few days while the side branches continue to grow. The end results will be a more bushier plant with more main bud sites.


The Fim Technique

Fimming is almost like topping. Instead of cutting off the entire top shoot, you only clip the top 60% or so of the growth tip a kind of "hair cut". This has the same effect as topping, but since you don't remove the growth tip you keep that also, this can sometimes even give more than 3 extra grow tips.


LST (Low Stress Traning)

LST or Low Stress Training are ways to bend the plant without harming it, so the primary growth tips are lower than the secondary growth on the plant. Since LST does not harm the plant, growth is not stunted for a few days like it is using other techniques. When this is done it will regulate its growth hormones and the side branches that were not in the light will start to catch up fast resulting in more bushy, lower plant, and many side shoots. Making this ideal for indoor growing.

How soon do you start LST? after the dismal amount of viable buds on the bottoms of my plants when I harvested I'm willing to try. My bagseed babies all have 3 sets of symetrical nodes (3 leaf).

Default LST for lazy sumbitches only!

OK, I have a confession. I'm a lazy sumbitch and I occaisionally come up with a time/energy saving idea. I'm sure lots of folks LST with pipe cleaners. I began using them because I had lots of trouble getting stoned and having to wrap that fecking twine around, inside/outside, underneath, wrap it around. Fershitsake. This method is quick, simple and let's me have more time to smoke. I call this...
The Rev's Magic Pipe Cleaner Therapy

What I'm trying to accomplish with LST is more bud sites and an even canopy from my plants so they will grow as uniformly as possible.
Pic 1 The first picture is the results of LST on my Blue Mystic plants last grow.
Pic 2 - These colorful pipe cleaners have magic in them. (OK, humor me here. I'm stoned as usual).They came from the Fabrics & Crafts department at Wally World. They are twice as long as your standard pipe cleaner.
Pic 3 - Drill some holes around the top edge of your plastic pots. I usually add 10-15 holes in a gallon pot and up to 30 holes in a 3 gallon pot. You can always come back later and drill more holes if you need them.
Pic 4 - Insert the pipe cleaner in the hole.
Pic 5 - Attach one end to the plant gently. You can make it loose or tight as you need to secure the plant but don't snap a top off. After a frew days when you need to tighten up, pull the pipe cleaner further through the hole on the edge and bend it upward. This is a really quick method. Lots quicker than getting stoned and trying to untie and re-tie that damn twine.
Pic 6 - This pic is important. Make sure you begin by tying off and securing the base of the plant OPPOSITE from the side you'll be doing your bending. This plant was started on LST at day 18. I generally start LST when the plant is big enough. Be gentle.
Pic 7- Here the plant is beginning to fill space horizontally. It has almost covered the entire top of the pot.
Pic 8 - When a side branch finally reaches the edge of the pot, I tie it off (loosely) and let it begin to grow upward.
Pic 9 - These 2 plants are still under 6 inches tall.

I understand your position. It's kinda like that guy in your avatar... he detracts from the beauty of the toilet on the porch.

LST, nice and simple. One piece of string and a hole in the lip of the pot are all you need. I like to bend mine over so the main stalk makes at the most a 45 degree angle.

I top and prune my mother (donor) plants (HST) as well as LST. Then clone what I have cut off. That way my plants don't too much room.

Also for stealthier outdoor growing...my last outdoor grow was trained in LST and blended in much better with the other greenery...mine were in a nettle patch and the guy who mows my lawn saw them at least once a week and he didn't realize they were there til I gifted him half a z at Christmas...

Peace...One Love...j.b.

so, the basic idea of LST tranning is just getting it to grown on its side? is that it? or once its on it side then what do you do?
