    When to stop LSTing

    Hi all. I have been LSTing my 6 autos for several weeks. This my first time doing this. That said, 5 out of 6 are beginning to go into their flowering stage, with lots of pistols forming. Should I continue bending branches and tying when there are buds forming? Also, I've been taking leaves off that shade buds, and often they're upper leaves, not just around the bottom of the plants. ??

    Until they stop growing leaves and stems, about 2-3 weeks into flower, and that’s fine it’ll give your budsites more light to grow with!
    Grow and good luck

      Do you mean 2 to 3 weeks from the very beginning of starting to flower? When pistols have been there for 2/3 weeks? If so, then my window is closing. Thanks furrysparkle!

    I agree with furrysparkle, I usually turn mine loose in about the 2nd week in flower.

      Greenpassion, I might add. You want to keep a cola in check that shots up faster then others. Keep bending that one down to keep it level with the rest.

        Well I didn't do the greatest job. I'll post pics in the morning, but I don't have a flat even canopy. Definitely not a Christmas tree shape, but not a flat even canopy either. Next grow I'll do better.

      What I mean is, eventually your plant will stop growing leaves and stems so you won’t need to LST anymore, however you will still need to delifolate as needed.

      With most strains they stop about 2-3 weeks after you switch to flower however every plant is different, simply keep them all at about the same level so you can give them the most of your grow light.
      Grow and good luck

        I want to thank you all for your responses. I'm really bad at responding to messages and posts. Got too much going on I guess. But I do appreciate all your help!
