    That is the question :)
    Indica. Obviously.. started from seed. 48 days old. Opinions? pros/cons to pruning?
    Also, she is about 10 inches tall.

    I wouldn't prune... I'd bend her over and start shaping it... LST

    i only ask, because ive seen a thousand examples of LST. also, i was thinking of covering my medium, maybe use styrofoam? i could use that styrofoam then to attach whatever im using to LST with.

    I probably should have mentioned I planned on scrogging. I have my trellis ready. It's about a foot above plant base. Do I need to prune or lst before it reaches the height for the scrog?

    also. special thanks to you cold. without your help and advice at the beginning of this grow, they wouldn't look this good without ya!

    so for the LST, i just take the main stem and bend her down a little? it actually makes sense. i remember reading something about hormonal change when you bend the stem, it causes the sides to want to be the main stem or something?

    It's a hybrid Hash Plant. 20160817_224900.jpg The medium is called Rocks..It's made from super heated shale..Much cleaner than the clay balls.

    You can manipulate a little at a time until she becomes horizontal so those side shoots can become main shoots. I'd start training that smaller one before the stalk becomes woody and not as pliable.
    I start LST as soon as the first root breaks thru the net pot

    I adjusted the larger plant. Also on the smaller plant, how far over should I lst it? It for sure won't bend as far.
