Hi @AutoCrazy! Don't overdo. It's really easy to stunt autos, even with the simplest LST techniques. Just try to slowly accompany the stems out of the plant's center, in order to open up its shape and increase light penetration and air circulation. Also, you should not try doing it after a watering/feeding, they tend to be very resistant when they've just been watered, you will increase the risk to break/split a stem. It's a game of patience and daily tiny adjustments. This is why I usually do it with the help of strings, they are easy to adjust and don't harm the plants. Hope this will help, keep us updated and happy growing! :facepunch:

Ciao crazy :v:
You need to bent her carfully and slow to the side of the pot. After 1 or 2 days she will grow again right to the light. Be carful I already broke some brenches because i was to impatient:sweat_smile: (if this happens make sure you have some duck tape to fix it *no joke*)
Ps:Lst works great with topping or fimming. You can top her and wait 1 or 2 weeks to train (lst) her branches.
Best wishes :v:
