start at the first set of leaves, works better the earlier the start the better the results. consider using something quite heavy like a metal garden hook to thread it through so it stays put and wont be moved by the plant (yes they are surprisingly strong!). so you want to thread the seedling through a metal garden hook then basically keep the rest of the leaves (that will turn into stems for flowers) down as well ... you're right on time to FIMM or top or flux by the way - hope you do well here because down the line you may be rewarded ! good luck ! :rocket:

Hi, you can do it now , until the next 2 Weeks. As vigor as she grows and looks , you can do topping/ fimming too

Hello ! You already have 6 / 7 nodes so it's the right time to start while the stems are still flexible to work on the shape. You can also combine topping to LST to encourage secondaries stems growth and to help you to keep a flat canopy. I hope it will help you :grin::v::skin-tone-3:

For most strains after the 4th node is when training is recommended. From your pictures you have posted it looks like your ready to start LST now. Shes looking gorgeous good luck with your grow.

Usually once a plant had 3-4 nodes you may begin LST. Good luck:+1:

Hi @Autofeather! The sooner you start, the better control you'll have over its shape. However, LST on seedlings is not a good idea, plant should have a strong root system and stems must have a few centimeters to work with. From what I see on your pictures, you're in the perfect timeframe for a first LST session. Here's my method with AirPots: 1 string around the container, then X strings to tie your stems, fixed to the container's one. Keep up the great work with this beautiful lady :facepunch:
