Nothing in particular. Maybe you have some insight to the dos/don'ts. We are growing 11 or so photo plants now. Our first auto grew a good taproot but didn't take to the soil. I'm still a little hopeful for her, but she's not popping like she should be. We dropped another in the water last night, hoping she will adapt better than her sis.
I grow in 3 gallon containers and I start the seed in the pot it will finish in (no transplanting).
At day 14, I begin LSTing the plant. One strap around the base of the stem (12 o clock), another half way up the stem (6 o clock) and I pull the top over to about 30 degrees. Nothing too harsh. I'm not trying to break apical dominance, just exposing the lower limbs to more light as the plant grows.
They usually start to go up a bit fast after that and I just keep the main cola LSTd to the level of the rising secondaries. You sort of get a feel for it after a couple. You're only LSTing and adjusting for a couple of weeks or so. Not too much work.
As the lower branches stretch up, I stake around the edge of the pot and using string, pull the secondaries out to the edges, in order to open the plant up a bit and allow good light penetration all the way down the stem.
I don't defoliate at all. I'll sometimes LST a troublesome fan out the way.
If you end up with a nice flat topped plant, you maximise the individual plants potential.
Try not to stress them at all. Environment is key really.
I completely ignore breeders timescales. Let the plant tell you it's finished, pistils brown, swollen calyxes, sticky, smelly and solid.
Anything else that pops into your head, feel free to ask.
