    the white things holding down the plant are wire hanger pieces. you can use almost anything. so the short answer is it grows more buds. the long answer is; their are chemicals in the plant that tell it which way to grow also gravity plays a role as well. gravity pulls down on the more dense part of the plants cells so when you bend the plant at an angle and leave it like that the plant stops what would be vertical growth (after being tied down its more like horizontal growth), and starts putting the hormones that tell it to grow on lower parts of the plant which are now higher than the main stalk, which results in more colas, shorter plant, more meds.

    at least thats what ive researched.

    to tell you the truth im not sure. but i think when its tall enough to bend over lol. no really i waited until it had a good 5 or 6 nodes, but that will depend i assume on the strain and how tight your node spacing is

    as soon as the plant can handle it, basically once the stem is strong enough to support a bend without uprooting the plant or breaking, yet pliable enough to bend with a nice curve

    hmmm,..I wouldn't start in flowering if that's what you mean.. I'd rather have the plant concentrate on making buds and not growing new branches or anything else

    yeah, in my opinion if you try to lst that late you might shock her and that will effect the buds. best time to do it is when they are still young, like only 5 or 6 nodes.

    Some strains that originate in very hot climates (lots of mexican weeds are like this) will do well even at higher temps. But many that come from cooler places won't make it in hot weather.
