Super Lemon Haze in her Super Low Stress Training Regime

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys got this info from the site a while back (Think John posted it ‘superbluehaze’) and have been waiting for the opportunity to try this. This is a modified version. Finally finished my grow and hence the start of the journal.

LST Low Stress Training

“Well here we go, LST (Low Stress Training) the ultimate way to maximize your yield. It is important to start your grow with high potency marijuana seeds genetics, with LST you can even go for tall sativa cannabis seeds strains.

What we going with today is my first SLH so super excited to see what she is going to taste like in the end. Here are the specs and genetics.

I will only be doing this on SLH1 , SLH2 will have some normal topping ect.

Before we begin let’s get some knowledge on what you will be looking at:

Light Brown: Pot Outline

Green thick Lines: Main Stem

Small Thin Lines with Green Balls on top: Fan leafs

Yellow Lines: Side Branches

Red: Tie down Metal Hooks

gallery_9029_222_126178.jpg

STEP 1: Grow your plant from a potent GHS sativa strain of choice to 3 or 4 leaf sets, some use 5 but I always use 3 because after 3rd leaf set the main stem starts to harden and it will be harder to bend over your plant properly without breaking the main stem.

STEP 2: Using a metal hook (I cut small sections of cloths hanger and bend a U shape at the end as a hook) bend over your plant with metal hook at the last internode (space between the last set of fan leafs and the next to last) and stick the metal hook into your dirt to hold down the stem.

STEP 3: This is really not a step, just waiting time... Take note of how the top of the plant that was bent down will bend back upwards towards the light, this could take anywhere from 3 hours to 1 day.

STEP 4: Veg and don’t tie down until you have a new leaf set. You will notice Side branching has started already because good light is getting to the main stem areas next to each fan leaf stem intersection with the main stem.

STEP 5: Depending on your starting pot size you may have to transplant. If you started out with a large pot, repeat step 2 over and over again holding the main stem down with hooks until you reach the end of the pot.

STEP 6: Now that your new leaf set has formed you have enough length in growth since the first bend (to allow you to start bending the stem horizontally around the inside edge of the pot. Use metal hooks again to keep this bend in place. Side branches should be coming along very nicely. Sativa cannabis seeds strains grow faster and produce more stems, indica marijuana seeds varieties will grow half as much.

STEP 7: Continue repeating steps 4 and 6, allowing the plant to grow and then keep tying it down along the inside edge of pot using metal hooks (or whatever your using) Side branches should be forming and growing up towards the light.

STEP 8: Continue to repeat step 7 until you are all the way around the pot... when you reach the point where your plant first met the edge of the plant Top the plant (cut off the very top of the plant) and hold it down horizontally with a metal hook... During all this time of repeating step 7 you should also be tying down horizontally the new branches that have formed from the main stem as much as possible until you use up as much space as possible inside the pot as well, the outer branches growing over the outside edge of the pot you can hold down as well with string to keep those tops even with the inner branches.

STEP 9: After you have used up all possible space inside the pot it’s time to just let it flower...

During flowering and even before due to lack of light on the main stem fan leafs which is all the way to the bottom almost against the soil those fan leafs will die off anyways, I usually cut these off the main stem right after the branch has grown out in that area, keeps things neat down below where you will need good airflow during flowering..

STEP 10: So go ahead and take off any fan leafs coming off the main stem that is going around the inside edge of the pot.

Set your timer to 12/12 and watch it bloom.

April 2012 –

Soaked 2xSLH for 24 Hours, normally about 15-18

1. Grow cupboard, old cupboard I had lying around being converted.

400W HPS + 80W CFL

2. Soil, good Local nursery mix, worm castings, vermiculite, Bone meal, Vermiculite

3. Temp , ranges up to 33 C, trying to compensate with homemade co2 bucket (Suger,Yeast,water) until new grow room built

4. Water Reservoir 22 degrees Celsius

gallery_9029_222_126516.jpg

16 April 2012 – Soaked seeds for 24 hours, normal tap water

gallery_9029_222_105853.jpg

17 April 2012 – Planted seeds, organic soil (potting soil, worm castings, vermiculite, bone meal and peat moss) left to stand for 2 weeks. 1 litre plain water each with a PH of 6.7

19 April 2012 – 1 Litre water each PH 6.9, Top soil dried out due to cool tube fans failing.

20 April 2012 – Moved small top layer of soil away, concerned they were planted too deep, very stoned when I planted the beans.

21 April 2012 (day1) – SLH1 shot through

gallery_9029_222_72703.jpg

22 April 2012 (day2) – SLH2 shows first signs of popping out. Watered a ½ litre each. Plain Tap water PH 6.7

gallery_9029_222_20383.jpg

24 April 2012 (day4) – 1 Litre plain water each PH 7.1 temp 26 Celsius. Slow start on SLH2 but sure she will catch up.

27 April 2012 (day7) – 1 Litre water each with 2.5ml biogrow, PH 6.5 temp 28 Celsius.

gallery_9029_222_132574.jpg

1 May 2012 (Day 11) – 1 Litre plain water each, PH 7 temp 33 Celsius. SLH 2 still lagging behind and thinking maybe root damage when transplanting but going to keep her growing in hopes she shows her true colours ;)

3 May 2012 (Day13) – Watered 1 litre each with 3ml biogrow.PH 6.7 26 Celsius.

4 May 2012 (Day14) – Started first tie down on SLH1. SLH2 will have a normal grow just with a few toppings for desert ;)

Damnman you're right SLH 1 is very vigorous and looking beautiful compare to 2 :)

Will be watching that circular LST closely as i love how it looks when it's done ^^

I think it was on Anguscr Noname plants or Ice dream that he had done a circular lst too, not so long ago, maybe 1 month or 2.

Anyway very nice report with nice pictures and hard work :)

Thanks for taking the time, and don't forget to keep us updated ;)

Have a good grow

– Second bend right to create something square looking rather than circular. Also cut fan leaves that were against the soil.

Looking good, I love that method! That is pretty much what I did with my Sour D. just not as extreme. I think I may try your method of LST on my next grow. I'm sure the results will be impressive. Happy grows!
