When and how to start LST on autoflower

That’s normal plant growth, LST won’t genetically changed the plant, it will redirect the direction the current growth is growing. Like I mentioned above HST like topping stops the apical growth redistributing this energy and growth on the side branches below the topping :love_you_gesture:

Looking real good! Side nodes are really filling in. Doesn’t look like she’s going into flower yet, has good chances to get big!! :muscle:t2:

Doesn’t look like it’s there yet, but eventually you might want to LST the side branches down to the pot too, and bring the main stalk back down. Idea is to keep the canopy level, making a tabletop, so no branches are higher than others.

Thank you! I thought about that but was scared because a few spots have white pistils starting to show. I read somewhere that it wasnt good to keed LST after that point. Is this true? Im guessing its in preflower right now.

@OGIncognito I should know this all ready. Is that the only auto you have mainlined above? I had been wondering how an auto would fair with it. I may have to try that on the WW I have started. Your plant there came out great.

I do most of them this way with only the 3rd and 4th nodes left to grow. I have done the Nebulas Manifolds that had some nice colas :love_you_gesture:

This was a GG from 3 years ago…I picked up a new phone a year 1/2 ago and lost some pics

Here’s a carcass shot on a Sour Diesel, trying to find a pic of the plant

Thanks, Now that I am going for smaller plants. This will help a lot. I do it on photos with good luck. I just haven’t got to do an auto. It seems like I can plan a full auto grow and be lucky if one makes it. I am growing to order right now lol I have a guy doing work on my deck. And he would rather be paid in weed than money. Good for me :grin: Si I let him choose what he wants. And I know what my little sister likes. I am finally doing one for my self. A few weeks and I can start the ww auto like yours :+1: Thanks chief :grin:

:grin::grin: the best kind of currency. So far with the exception of only 2 autos they all start flowering around week 6 above ground. This gives me around 3 weeks to train after the topping above the 4th node. I’ve found that I get much more growth on the lower nodes when I top as soon as the 4th node has enough growth. Standing by for your next auto drop Brother :love_you_gesture:
