    3ish weeks in training questions

    Hey all so my plants are in a tent under a LED light and they are growing what I believe to be really well. I know I should be at some point training them somehow to help increase my yields. I’m not sure if I’d be better off topping them or doing a low stree train and gradually bending the stems to the side as they grow. I’m looking for opinions.

    Plants look great - top em for sure. Check out Nebula's tutorials on GWE.

      Hey!
      You can/should combine topping or fimming with LST.
      There is alot of info on GWE, if you haven't... I would reccomend you to read this: https://www.growweedeasy.com/topping-fiming
      that's the guide Canuck147 also recommended.

      I would like to ask you , at what height do you have your light?
      it looks like your plant thrives to grow tall....
      I am also using LED and I have my lights like this:
      Germination: 60-70 cm
      Vegetative: 40- 60 cm
      Bloom: 30- 40 cm

      Good luck !

        So just measured my lights from top of soil to bottom edge of the light is about 91cm. From the tops of my plants it’s approx. 78cm which is the highest it go in my current set up. About a week or so ago I tried to lower the lights some, but admittedly I kinda eye balled it and didn’t measure and my plants both kinda fell toward the ground. I immediately brought my light back up and they stood back up after a couple days.

        I am going to try again using the numbers you provided and see what reaction I get bringing it down to 60cm from the tops of my plants. I’ll post back in a day or so and let you all know the results.

          Sounds like a Good idea!

          You should see what your manufacturer's recommendations regarding distance are. Since you are in week 3 your in the vegetative state and should lover you lights more.

          The measurements I typed is the recommendations from my manufacturer. But my lights are 2-3 times stronger than yours (600 W drawn power) .

        So like an absolute tool bag that I am I misplaced the sheet with the recommendations for light heights and I can’t seem to find them online. So I emailed the company to see if they can just send me a copy or tell me.

        I moved my lights down about 14 hours ago and just checked on my new plants. They look to bw really enjoying it! So thank you so much for that!

        As I wait for an email from the company I brought my lights down another 20cm to see how the beauties respond.

          So I’ve decided I’ll be Fimming & LST both my plants once they are ready which shouldn’t be much longer at all honestly, with their current growth rates. Both plants have what I believe is 3 Nodes each. That’s me not counting the first pair of leaves since the first set of leaves. I may be wrong but I think the first set are those first leaves that came out the seed. They both are single blade.
