    Gidget Nailed it.
    To add, some phenos and strains dont perform well to LST.
    keep it in mind.

    Dude, that is some good work on the LST!!! I dont know what i did with my LST, i think i started too late, at day 29. How many cfl's are you running and how many plants you got under them?

    I got 3 26w 6500k for one plant, but i dont think that is ennough, what do you think? I have been thinking about getting at least one more in there.

    thanks

    That is bad info, you are just exposing the lower leaves when training to get them to produce larger flowers

    Any plant that is healthy will benefit from training & will increase your yield as well

    I can't remember what lights I used in the end, If you click on the leaf in my signature it will take you to that grow journal.
    It was a fun learning experience.

    I'm doing a somewhat unplanned lst/scrog due to my A5 haze stretching above my other strains, but it's working really nice and i think it requires less veg time than the method outlined in the diagram posted by Gidget. I am by no means 100% on that so correct me if you feel the need to.

    Anyway I did it by topping for 4 colas and lst-ing the remaining branches so that they were more or less horizontal. I then put a very make-shift screen on top and treated like a scrog.

    hope that's of some kind of use to you and if you wana see the rest of my grow click on the signature.

    Peace
