LST Harvest please help!
This is my first grow and ive LST'd the plant throughout its whole life and chop day is just around the corner. Now, i have nodes coming out from as low down as the level of the soil and the plant itself has a horizontal stem due to the LST, but obviously the buds have grown up wards. My question is how do i hang this up to dry? If i just chop it at the bottom and then hang it up then all the buds are going to be touching eachother as its grown like such a bush. It will be a mess! If i chop each individual branch and hang them individually is this going to effect the final result? How do i go about this? Any advice is much appreciated, ive made it this far i just dont want to flop it now through the drying process! :P
Id just hang each branch separtley.. It wont affect the final outcome of the product.. thhe smaller branches just might dry a little faster
i prune off bud sites at the extreme bottom of the plant which would grow to not even amount to one bowl at the end
like the ones you are mentioning
this is done before or shortly after flower is initiated
then those lower branches get one big fat spicy meatball at the end of the stick instead of a medium sized one
I pictured the chimp saying that in an Italian accent, tell me I'm not stoned.

I suggest chopping it right below where the plant makes the "Y" shape because if you hang that "Y" upside down on a string (think of a wishbone on a clothesline) it will hold itself with bud on either side, therefore killing two birds with one stone. don't bite off more than you can chew when chopping though. Just hang it up like always man.
