The stem isn't strong enough. The plant is falling down and growing weirdly. What's happening now?
And is it a good time to try lst, and if so how?

I think the main problem is the quality of the substrate, all this added to the lack of ventilation in the substrate and in the enclosure

Oh my goodness she’s stressed and trying to stretch to the light you need to drop your light down so she doesn’t keep using all her energy fighting for her basic need of light. To try to save her I’d bury her where she’s just barely out of the dirt. At this point if you try to LSTor not fix the issues you won’t get much of anything from her so please baby her back to health!

Hi there... I wouldn't do any LST at the moment, you have just her 1 stem.. and she's struggling to get to the LIGHT... lower your lights, put a toothpick next to her to 'wedge' her up... maybe even put more soil around the base of her stem. She's wanting to grow, she just can't see the light enough.. lower them down to 24 inches above to see how she reacts, then you can do more or less.. Good luck! ps. also, invest in some stronger lighting... you can get some for like $100usd.

[EDIT] Hi there ! It's looks like your plant is too far from the light so your plant had to stretch to reach the light ! You can put the "stretch" part into the soil , generally at that stage their is no problem with that method and the underground parts will get roots it the better case ! I hope it will help you :grin::+1: !! Take a look at that page (in french) , it is really what you should do to get rid of that "stretched" parts the translation of this name method in english would be something like "the rotary layering" :

The lights are too far away and not strong enough, I would recommend that you change them for Screw in LED bulbs like i'm using, they work much better than CFL. Try to bury the stem.

Hello @Borat420! In general if you want them to stay short you need to have your lights close to the plants (but not to close and burn them) and be more at the blue spectrum. I can see that your lights are close enough and it should be if you had 150 watts of light. I say if because from experience i can tell that you are at around 30-35 low efficiency watts. These e27 leds are at 10-18 watt and that cfl i don't think it's more than 15 watts. So no matter how close you put your lights your plants will stretch. You need to change your lights. Of course you can't do LST now. My advise is to toss it buy some lights and start again. Thit plant is not only stretched but it's also very stressed and that will have an impact at the rest of its life. If you change lights now and keep it it might survive but it will never give you its maximum potential maybe not even half. Sorry man but that's the hard truth. Have always happy grows :facepunch:

watup your seedling is gonna be fine but it's "looken for" the light in a wierd way. get your lights about twice as close, check them twice a day to maybe move them because of the heat. This baby will pull through bro trust

She’s stretching out. This is usually a sign that your lights are too far away. My recommendation would be to try to bury the plant lower down and get her closer to your lights. Good luck! :+1:
