Best way to hold back a plant?

I have several plants that need to catch up to a fast growing Durban poison. My question is; what is the safest and least stressful way to hold back a plant. Common sense says just move it out from directly under the Mars Hydro TSL-2000. My hunch may be wrong so if anyone could give me some advice I would greatly appreciate it.


First welcome to the community. My experience with growing more than a couple plants At the time seems like you’re going to always have one that will out do the rest. You can always do a little topping an a little training to try to keep canopy the Same height. Nice plants. Good luck.

I guess I was not very clear on what I have done already. All plants get topped up to 6 times during veg depending on strain,growth rate, etc., the biggest one just got topped over weekend so I’m limited on doing any more cutting.

Last grow one plant ,I had to gently pull and tie a few limbs down to keep canopy even

I haven’t tied anything down yet, I’ll do that today. Thanks for the help.

Welcome. I usually grow a few ladies at a time and top them multiple times. I do some LST to keep canopy fairly even. One thing I have found out is that it is best to pull them down when they are thirsty. They are more limber and less prone to snapping when dry.

Thanks! I was just about to water, I’ll do the LST first.

Super crop the branches that are growing too fast.

Usually a technique I wait for flower to do but could work in this situation
