Low Stress Training (LST)
Pinching (crushing stem to stop growth)
So I basically got flamed for being a first time grower and stating my opinion for saying I think pinching and crushing a stem to stop growth is more stressful then slightly bending over the plant, LST.
I want to know from more people than just the douche that flamed me and put me down for being a first time grower. What do you think is more stressful to the plant?
I also want to add I did not say one was better than the other or you should not do one. It is not my place to say anything like that as an inexperienced grower. I was just stating what I thought and wasn't stating facts.
I only said, It sounds to me like pinching would cause more stress than LST

Yea I am not going to say anything more to that person or link him to this thread or anything I actually just want to know for personal education so I don't give wrong advice.
I am here to learn from all of you great people...well most of you great people....that are willing to give advice and be helpful. Not give unhelpful criticism and put down new growers that only want to learn.

You are entitled to your opinion and anyone who puts you down for YOUR OPINION isn't worth worrying about. Lsting a plant doesn't hurt it in anyway and pinching it does so I believe your opinion is spot on. I do both though.
I do not want to discuss growing marijuana with any grow gurus.I want to talk to people who, like me, know there are many different ways to grow great meds.
i think they both hurt the plant's feelings..........and that's mean
I want to sail away to a distant shore..........an' live like an ape man.
Bro, I'm a newb grower myself. I'm only on my 5th or 6th grow (smoke too much, can't remember shit, lol), but I say, those on here who bash newbs like us should be ashamed of themselves. We all came to this forum to learn from those who are more experienced than us. Not be trash-talked and put down. Kudos to you for being the bigger man and asking for help. I do it all the time. I won't lie, I'm a fucking newb!!! Stoner fam should stick together, not bash one another for what they do not know! Can I get an Amen???
All I wanna do is just grow and grow and grow. Fuck everything else!

But you need to pinch in order to lst anyways. Not only are you pinching you are folding the stem over as well. Just because low stress is in the name don't mean it's any less stressfull. Pinching is half of lst, so how is it MORE stressfull? Please explain?
