No prob, I'm still learning too.
Did some trimming the other day, removed the lower growth on both plants.
Today I did LST and it's perking right back up already.

repp what did i tell u about LST, its meant for plants that are in vegging! the whole point is to redistribute the auxins (growth hormones) laterally to the other nodes so that you will have more flowering sites when u go into 12/12.... your supposed to let ur plant finish growing these sites BEFORE flowering.... right now your stems are quickly hardening off and its pretty much to late to reap the real benefits of LST imho.
tips for when you do LST, you should always leave your plant tied down, if you untie it the plant will quickly start to grow back to its orginial postion. also you should bend the main stalk to 90 degree's but never all at once.. pull ur stalk down maybe 20-30 degrees, than after it grows into that postion do another 20-30 degress and so on untill u can comfortably get to 90 degrees. try to do it all at once and u will stress the hell out of the main stalk if not break it.
i actually use a method of placing weights on a hook, they each weigh very little so i have very precise control... i bend the stalk to a comfortable angle, than set up the weights as a type of counterbalance... it all sounds complicated but its actually very intutive when you are doing it youself... i kind of imagine it as weight lifting for cannabis xD

How long should i wait between tie-downs? my friend also recommended the weight tie-down and might bring me some fishing weights to use.
The bigger one seems comfortable it perked up toward the light quite a bit in just 1 day.
Glad you came through to check it out bro.
