Hey Stinker, it is great when they respond like that!This morning I did bit more defoliation & tightening of the restraints. Going to give it 4 or 5 days and take some more. I’m glad I didn’t get aggressive with the LST, starting to get some competition of the mains. I like when they all want to be on top..
One thing I found with the only auto that I have so far trained with LST, was that how it stayed in veg for nearly 3 weeks longer so therefore it grew a bigger base and produced more buds. A grow buddy started a seed from the same packet on the same day, and he didn't train his and it flowered 3 weeks earlier and he got 2.5 and I got just under 4oz.
I have tried defoliation on previous grows but I still don't know whether it achieves more yield or not. This grow I haven't done any at all just to see what happens, maybe next grow I might give defoliation another go. Schwazzing is an extreme style of defoliation that sounds interesting too.
