Sounds like a plan too me... yes they will always stay lower because the bend will stay, it is the actual main cola that will take back over and start growing up towards the light again as the growth hormones are redistributed again.

Pretty cool stuff to see

it is similar to topping as it will redistribute the growth hormones to lower branches allowing them to catch up to the main stem, inturn making the plant bushier with more and bigger buds... if done correctly in conjunction with utilizing all availible floor space it can and will increase your yeild.

This is a great example of Low Stress Training, (LST).

If you look closely, you'll see that the primary tip has been lowered to a point beneath the remainder of the branch with a blue colored wire. The top growth hormone is cut off from the primary and ALL of the secondaries take off like scalded pups for the light.

Using this method of increasing your yeild by multiplying the primary budding sites is an awesome way to increase yeild per/m2.

With the inclusion of one more type of training, you can SERIOUSLY increase your yeild. HST. That's right, hurt me baby! High Stress Training used after LST is a way to totally max out your crop.

Add to this your Halides in veggin and a good supply of HPS for the flowering and you've done everything you could to maximize your crop from the air up.

Now, ya gotta max out the lower regions. Hey! Get your mind back on the weed!

A "splash" resivoir is a must. The return has to be routed so that it dumps radically into the resivoir. This creates lots of splashing and bubbles. Bubbles that are churned into the resivoir contents. Airation of the nutrient solution is absolutly necessary. This method does it perfectly. I've used it for years.

A name brand nutrient solution is one of the things you have to NOT try to save money on. Pay up. It will pay you back ten fold.

Well hey, I didn't mean to write a book. You guys have a good night and lets talk about what I've written here. My goal is to have every person in the entire freakin world growin hydro max bud. **** man, we'd all be way too wasted to fight. If you look up "Lover-not fighter" in the dictionary, my picture is right there.

Where's the wimin? I'm high, I got that feelin.......

Just kiddin. If anyone ever took me up on it, it'd probly kill me!
good one

i always thought if i left the string on that buds will grow around and it will get stuck in the buds. so i was planning on taking my strings off but if that will make the main stalk start growing like normal again i dont know if i want to do that now. i'm using gardening twine and it kinda sheds so if buds would grow around it that prolly wont be a good idea.

what is the best kinda string to use for training?

will the buds on the main stalk grow around the strings and make the string unremovable at harvest?

can anyone help?

I personally use pipe cleaners, also I don't wrap anything tightly around the branches because they will at least cut into the plant or have it grow right into the plant.

I put a loose loop at one end of the pipe cleaner, grab the lowest part of the branch with the loop and pull gently until it either goes to the edge of the planter or until I feel resistance from the branch, if you don't make it to the edge of the planter give it a day or two and readjust it by pulling it down until it's level with the other branches.

Examples:
Plant has 2 tops higher that the rest
lst-1.jpg

Readjusted the 2 tops
lst-2.jpg

Top view if your interested
lst-top-3.jpg

I use pipe cleaners because they don't cut into the plant, I have seen them pop off the branch because of growth, I like it that way instead of cutting into it.

Any posting on this forum are solely intended for entertainment purposes only, and are made up in my mind. :huh:

I often see multiple branches tied down, but I thought the purpose was to get an even canopy. are people tieding down the smaller branches? i know u tie one to the base as an anchor, then one to the main stalk near the top bending it over, then all the other branches catch up to it, but what next?

I was curious about the FIM technique after I read about it in a book and wanted to try it, so I took two clones from my two mothers one a G-13 Hash & the other one is an Alaskan Ice. I first started with the G-13 clone since it was an indica and strong grower, so I chopped the top and accidentally cut too much off! ooops. I then bent the stem over to expose light to all the branches and the stem bent very well and didn't cause any damage. After a month or so It has been growing great under my T-12's, and is my and healthiest clone. When I tried again with the Alaskan Ice, I made sure not to cut too much off the top, but accidentally cracked the stem. It is starting to wilt now hopefully it will come back after it repairs its damage. With the Hindu Kush x Skunk #1, I just chopped the top and the loer branches are growing like crazy. I am hesitant to bend it , because I am trying to find a good hybrid that is a strong grower and a good yield. Here are some pics enjoy!
