Training plants to grow horizontally instead of vertically is beneficial for cannabis growers without ample space. Tying down plants during flowering and vegetative stages, known as low stress training (LST) is one option, another is applying simple plant bending techniques to gently manipulate stems and branches in to optimal positions.
Best Plant Bending Techniques For Cannabis Plants?
While low stress training is preferable during veg (3-4 weeks), bending stems during flowering is a better option while plants are packing on buds. How to bend plants? Use plant bending technique 4-6 hrs after watering, when stems are most subtle and slowly pull and hold branches away from master stem.
